Lap of Love Veterinarian: Tina Vaziri"Thank you so very, very much to Dr. Tina for coming on such short notice, and for helping us to give our beloved 18-year-old Siamese, James, a passage filled with grace, peace, dignity, and all the love in our hearts. Words cannot express how much it meant to us to be able to have this difficult experience in the comfort and privacy of our home, where James felt relaxed, safe, and loved. Thank you also to Tiffany, who responded to my heartbroken phone call with such empathy and gentleness, and handled all the details quickly with soothing calm. Dr. Tina's quiet kindness and compassion was a gift to all of us, and we are profoundly grateful to her for transforming one of the hardest days of our lives into a poignantly beautiful memory."Lynn, Alice, and David KeyserChicagoNovember 1, 2019
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Tina Vaziri"Tina was incredible. She made the absolute best of an awful situation. She made me, my brother and my dog feel comfortable and loved. My dog got to fall in love one last time before she was set free.

Thank you, Tina. You will always be remembered.

PS My 4 year old son insisted that our Cerito would have liked to be taken away in a pink car, so I told him your car was pink. 😜"

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Tina Vaziri"Dr Tina Vaziri came to us in our hour of need, after painfully deciding to lay our family member for the past 15 yrs to rest. Shiner, our Golden Retriever’s
quality of life was depleating all within a two week span.
Dr Tina (as she called herself ) approached Shiner and immediately went down to Shiner’s level and began slowly and gently stroking her and speaking softly, lovingly, and quietly telling her she was a good girl. Taking away any nervousness away, almost in a hypnotic way. Shiner was deaf and yet she responded to Dr Tina’s touch. All while coaching us on what was going on with her, as well , she clipped alittle bit of her fur and put it in a little bag and made a print of her paw in a soft clay. All as keepsakes. She gave her something to completely relax her. Shiner was breathing slowly and very relaxed, comfortably lying on her side, with the help of Dr Tina’s gentle touch.. Dr Tina always updating us and telling us to love on her and to tell what a good girl she is as she prepared the final medicine. She started the final stage and she took her heart beat and confirmed, she’s begun her journey home.
We Want to thank Dr Tina for the kindness and dignity she showed our Shiner, and her parents, during this enormous heartbreaking final moments with our beloved pet and family member. She is absolutely an amazing vet with an honest love for animals.
We highly recommend her to anyone who needs to go through this painful choice to reluctantly make your loving pet’s life come to an end and to help them walk towards the rainbow bridge peacefully.
Dr Tina is all you need.
She’s wonderful for all involved."

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Tina Vaziri"Thanks again Dr. Tina. This, the most difficult thing I have ever had to do, was made a little easier and more comfortable with your soft voice and kind words and just a genuine understanding of how much a great dog means to us. While I hate the parting, it's a small trade compared to the happiness that Aspen brought to my life. She was not a dog but rather a best friend and companion and the way you helped us honor her is worth more to me than anything. Thank you again for your time and effort in honoring her with us.
Best regards"

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Tina Vaziri"Dr. Tina and the Lap of Love Service was wonderful.
My family and I appreciated the kindness and professionalism that was shown to us. My sweet dog Kiera was gently and peacefully laid to rest. Dr. Tina was very comforting and explained everything. She even helped my son make a paw print of Kiera and cut a few locks of fur for us to keep and treasure. I am so grateful that we contacted you. You helped us make a difficult time more bearable. I highly recommend Dr. Tina and Lap of Love.

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Tina Vaziri"Dr. Tina was extremely compassionate and an excellent provider and helping our beloved Bear pass. Bear had been our sweet, loving companion for 9 years, and was very difficult for us to let him go. We couldn't be more grateful to Dr. Tina for how kind, gentle, and patient she was through the whole process. We couldn't have imagined it happening any other way, and are grateful for her care."Alexandra SweeneyHoustonMay 23, 2019
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Tina Vaziri"She was dressed in street clothes (not scrubs) and just had a non-descript brown bag, and came in and just started loving on my dog. Was exactly what I was hoping for - not a hospital type experience. Almost like a neighbor coming over. She was clearly a pet lover and I couldn’t have imagined a more perfect person to bring my dog to a peaceful rest."HoustonApril 5, 2019Lockwood's Pet Memorial
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Tina Vaziri"Dear Dr. Tina,

John and I so appreciate your kind and comforting words, and we can’t thank you enough for taking such good care of Blackjack, (and us, too), during this difficult time. We knew in our hearts that Blackjack would be leaving us sometime soon, but it’s never easy to “let go”. As difficult as yesterday was for us, we are so very grateful that we had you there to help our precious boy “cross over”. It takes a very special person to do what you do. You have such a gentle, loving, and compassionate heart, and we feel so truly blessed to have found you.

As you well know, the sense of loss and grief comes in waves….and we are no exception. The house seems so empty without Blackjack, even though our precious Bodhi is there. Bodhi is only 3 years old, so as you can imagine, he’s normally a very playful (and a bit rambunctious) boy. It was obvious that he sensed Blackjack’s absence and felt something was wrong, as he just laid around the house all day yesterday and last night. Of course, we loved on him…even more than usual…but he just looked so incredibly sad.

Blackjack loved laying in the sun, down by the water….so being happy and doing exactly what he loves to do…. was his “perfect place and timing” for yesterday. Thank you again….so very much….for taking such good care of our precious Blackjack (and us, too). You truly are an angel on earth.

Much Love,
John & Renee’ Griggs"

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Tina Vaziri"Dr. Tina was amazing! Her caring and gentle manner was such a help to us during this difficult decision. Not only did she help Boomer, but she helped us too. It truly was a beautiful experience and that was because of Dr. Tina’s compassion. She wanted to know about Boomer.. she fed him cookies and we had a great visit to celebrate Boomer’s transition. Thank you so much !"Gina SewellHoustonMarch 30, 2019Boomer's Pet Memorial
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Tina Vaziri"Dr. Tina was so patient, kind, and compassionate when she came to our home to help Hannah cross over. She was attentive to our emotional needs and really helped put my kids at ease. I would not have done it any other way."Maxine AguilarLeague CityMarch 13, 2019Hannah's Pet Memorial
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Tina Vaziri"I cannot sing enough praises for Dr. Tina. From her first home visit back in July 2018, I knew we had a gentle, guiding, caring and kind professional to advise and support us in the final chapter of our dear rescue Aussie Shepherd of 18 years. Our Ami girl was given the blessing of an additional 6 months of quality living with Dr. Tina's evaluation, recommendations, guidance and prescriptions. Our prescriptions were set up to be delivered directly to our home, and the refill process was easy and refills came in a timely manor, refrigerated (often with toys for Ami)

With heavy hearts, we said good bye to our beautiful girl on Christmas Eve 2018. Dr. Tina was there with us, and explained the process and offered kind reassurances and again, the utmost level of professionalism I have ever experienced in any Doctor (human or animal). Dr. Tina was so kind and compassionate, offering us the time we needed to say goodbye and two beautiful imprints for each of our sons who had grown up with Ami as sister and protector. We were grateful after an attempt at ink imprints, which did not turn out as envisioned.

The dignity and gentle sincere kindness that Dr. Tina exhibited throughout this emotional and heartbreaking goodbye for us, made this process a beautiful and humane experience. She was responsive to my e-mails and inquiries. The final good-bye still tugs at my heart, but it is the immense loss and void that Ami left that brings unstoppable tears and grief, not the process. Our main source of solace and comfort was that we had Tina with us, and know we made the right decision at the right time.

Thank you, Dr. Tina for your genuine compassion and understanding how very difficult this decision is, and making her final journey one of dignity and good karma. We will always have an unparalleled level of respect for you.
With eternal gratitude...

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Tina Vaziri"Dr. Tina was very nice and supportive. She made my husband and I feel a little more at ease and gave Jordan the best care. I am so glad we chose to do the ceremony at home. It was more relaxing for her and for us. Thank you, Lap of Love, for everything."Holly GriffithCypressDecember 18, 2018Jordan's Pet Memorial
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Tina Vaziri"I could never express the depth of my gratitude and respect for Lap of Love. They came into our home a stranger but quickly became family, loving our girl as much as we did. They were understanding. But more important, they were so informative. They helped us logically make the decision we knew in our hearts was the right one. I would recommend them to anyone who loves their animal as their child. Getting to say goodbye, in the comfort and peace of your home, with your animal surrounded by their humans and siblings, in their bed on their favorite blanket, cannot be more peaceful. I couldn't have asked for anything better for the sweet-girl who was my child for 15.5 years."Sam RangelPearlandDecember 8, 2018Jack's Pet Memorial
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Tina Vaziri"Dr. Tina Vaziri was incredible. She helped to make an unbearable situation bearable and somehow beautiful. She took the time to get to know Manny and us. She even let Manny get to know her, and he seemed very comfortable with her. He didn't seem anxious at all which is exactly what we wanted for him. He deserved to pass easily and peaceably in his home surrounded by his loved ones.

What a wonderful service Lap of Love and Dr. Tina provide in such an incredible way."

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Tina Vaziri"Dear Dr. Vaziri,

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Tina Vaziri"My 14 year old 78 lb. much loved lab, Jake, had a terrible night with seizures due to hip problems. He was in a great deal of pain and could not walk. I could not pick him up to put him in the car and my Vet couldn't come to the house. My Vet's office staff found Lap of Love for me. When I first called the I wasn't sure if I should have him euthanized. Tiffany, who answered my call was very compassionate. She explained everything, found a Vet in Katy and followed up with an e-mail. At no time was I pushed into making a decision. When Jake still couldn't walk and had another seizure in his sleep, I knew it was time. I called back and within an hour Dr. Tina arrived. She was wonderful, very gentle and loving with Jake and me. Dr. Tina explained every step and did not rush. She made sure I had enough time to say my goodbyes. When I was ready Tina and her husband gently loaded Jake on a stretcher, secured him and covered him with a fleece blanket. His ashes will be returned in a wooden box in 5 to 10 days. Lap of Love is definitely a five star operation."Patricia TydlackaKatyAugust 29, 2018

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Tina Vaziri"It was with the greatest kindness, dignity and gentleness that Dr. Tina Vaziri helped us say goodbye to our beloved cat Merlin this morning. My husband and I have never had to say goodbye to a pet before and Merlin was our best buddy for 19 years and meant more to us than we can say. Dr. Tina was so calm and lovely, which in turn helped us let him go in peace. The persons who assisted me with booking our appointment and then changing it when Merlin took a turn for the worst - Shelley and Tina, your kind words on my worst day were greatly appreciated.
We want to thank you all for taking care of our sweet Merlin and appreciate your assistance and service very much!
Sincerely

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Tina Vaziri"Dr. Tina was so amazing in a traumatic time for me. I could barely function after Sadie passed away in my arms and Dr. Tina was so calming and so professional, but most of all so warm. She asked me to share stories about my baby and I knew that she truly cared about me and Sadie, and wanted to make a horrible experience feel at least bearable. I appreciated her calming and caring words and the care she took of my Sadie. I cried and hugged her and she let me. I really appreciate her help that sad day."Gina CovellPearland/HoustonAugust 3, 2018Sadie's Pet Memorial
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Tina Vaziri"Dr. Tina, I want to thank you with all my heart for giving Sheeba the true Diva departure she deserved. Your compassion, kindness, support, patience and education helped me to accept and appreciate why I was having to lose another kitty. Your guidance helped ease my guilt just a bit. You took such wonderful, loving care with Sheeba, and it was a peaceful passing... not like the last two conducted in the vet's office. The house is incredibly empty, but I'm comforted knowing you assisted in putting Sheeba at peace. Also, I'm grateful for the beautiful memorial you posted on Facebook. I have been sharing it with everyone."Jennifer CaseyHoustonAugust 1, 2018
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Tina Vaziri"I was impressed with Dr. Tina. She was kind, warm, supportive and professional. She answered any questions I had. Dr. Tina's interaction with Addie was loving, respectful, compassionate and reassuring. Dr Tina skillfully worked in the medical technicalities & paw print with softness and love. She was mindful of Addie's needs to have no fear and pain as well as my deep loss. Thank you Dr. Tina for everything and being Dr. Tina.
