Lap of Love Veterinarian: Christie Comm"Dr. Christie is an amazing vet and a truly kind, gentle and compassionate person. She treated us like family, and it was a pleasure to meet her despite the difficult circumstances. She was warm and caring and took all the time Joy and needed to say good-bye and help her along on her journey. I will never forget this experience and will treasure it. I know many pet parents, and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Lap of Love and Dr. Christie to them should the need arise. Thank you so much Dr. Christie and Lap of Love."Dona MurphyLake BlluffOctober 15, 2015Joy's Pet Memorial
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Christie Comm"Dr. Christie Comm was wonderful. She made this difficult experience as painless as possible. I tried to prepare myself emotionally, but still it was a very difficult decision. Dr. Comm was very soft and gentle and explained the steps that she will go through. My beloved Oliver, either was already drifting away or sensed what is about to happen and welcomed the idea that he's about to cross the Rainbow Bridge. Seeing him drifting peacefully away gave me a lot of comfort. It was serene and almost surreal.

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Christie Comm"The experience that Dr. Christie provided to my pet Nilla and our family was simply phenomenal. I could not have imagined a better way for Nilla to cross over. From the moment Christie arrived she lit up our home with the genuine warmth of her kind personality and instantly made Nilla feel comfortable. She massaged her back and sweet talked her to make her comfy. She truly did treat her as if she were one of her own. My family and I were primarily concerned with having Nilla's last moments with us be peaceful and calm ones rather than stressful and scary. Dr. Christie was incredibly professional but knew exactly what to say to help us get through this tough process. The procedure was done at our pace and at the comfort of my pet. She monitored Nilla very closely to ensure that her passing was conducted properly and in a peaceful manner.

I would highly recommend Dr. Christie to anyone who is in a similar situation with their pet. As I mentioned, she is a professional who shows passion in her work and will do a great job. Deciding to let go of my beloved pet has been one of the most difficult decisions I've had to make in my life and I am most certainly glad that I reached out to Lap of Love. By doing so, I can rest easy knowing that my last moments with Nilla were pleasant ones, as they deserve to have been."

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Christie Comm"Dr. Christie Comm what a woman and Dr. that is truly a "Lap of Love" and a Heart radiating such compassion and genuine LOVE. Even with all the different Hospice/Vets we interviewed, there was something different, something heart felt when we spoke with Dr. Christie about our Six. That we just KNEW she was the Dr. to help our Six cross over the rainbow bridge to return to his natural photon state/spiritual nature.

Dr. Christie was so caring and gentle with Six and our emotions as we never wanted to let go of Six, yet we could not let him suffer any more heart ache than he had endured over the last year of his life. Dr. Christie truly made a very difficult situation, a comforting lap of love for our Six and all of his Six's family left behind.

This was confirmed by Six (she was the one to help him cross over) when Dr. Christie entered into the home. As sick as Six was, he greeted Dr. Christie at the door and then with all of the excitement, lost bladder control and then returned to greet Dr. Christie with LOVE and looking for LOVE and ATTENTION from our guest."

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Christie Comm"This honestly brought me to tears... Thank you for honoring my best friend in the many ways that you have. Christie ~ You were beyond amazing, and I cannot thank God enough for you and Lap of Love Veterinary Hospice of Chicagoland. Yesterday was the hardest day of my life, but I wouldn't have wanted Linus to go any other way. You truly made it such a peaceful, loving, and tender experience -- even through my devastation. I am eternally grateful for you, and you will constantly be in my thoughts. Thank you for taking such good care of my fur baby soulmate in the last moments of his life. Even though I rescued him, HE rescued ME, and he will never be replaced. Thank you for making such a terribly difficult time so special. All my love ~ Ashley xoxo"Ashley WasnickSchaumburgJune 5, 2015Linus's Pet Memorial
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Christie Comm"Dr. Christie was gentle, patient and kind. Roxy liked her, which was a great comfort to us, especially considering our pup's usual distrust of veterinarians. We did not want Roxy's last moments in this life to be stressful, and they were not, thanks to Dr. Christie. We feel very fortunate that Dr. Christie was there for us and our sweet pup."Julie WalsenDowners GroveJune 2, 2015Roxy's Pet Memorial
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Christie Comm"For months I dreaded the day when I would have to make the decision to put my poor little boy to sleep.
I prayed constantly that God would take him and not put that burden on me but it was not to be.
When I could see his pain was no longer manageable, I loved him too much to keep here for me.
When I made the call to ask for help from Lap of Love, Dr. Christie was amazing. She was so kind and
so consoling and compassionate on the phone. In person, she was even more so.
When the time came, she was so kind and gentle. Everything was so peaceful and she was so wonderful,
I don't think Scooter had a moment of anxiety. She made what is one of the worst things I have been
through bearable. I will be forever grateful to her."

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Christie Comm"Dr. Christie was the vet who came to our home to help Raven over the Rainbow Bridge.
She was very nice and understanding, and she showed so much love and compassion to both Raven and to us. She helped Raven get comfortable
and also comforted us. She was very professional yet made us feel like we had known her forever.
We have used Lap of Love now 4 times. The first 3 times Dr. Julie was the one who came but this time she was not available so Dr. Christie was the vet available.
My husband and myself were sad that Dr. Julie was not the one to come but after meeting and seeing how great Dr. Christie was we were happy that she was also
a great vet.
Thank you, Dr. Christie for being there for our Raven and for making it a little easier for both her and us in such a hard time."

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Christie Comm"I have never written an on-line review before but I just had to say something about this truly wonderful service. I am thankful that I was told about Lap of Love when "the dog of my life" Lilly, was in the very final stages of kidney disease last week. I was so anxious about everything and the lack of sleep (being up with her every night for a week) and the amount of medication needed was overwhelming when coupled with the concerns I had over the emotional impact of her passing on my three children as Lilly was truly my "4th child" and they loved her so very much. She grew up with them. Lap of Love gently swoops in and peacefully helps you navigate the details with such compassion and concern. I highly recommend meeting with a Lap of Love vet in advance of the final day. We were so fortunate to get Dr. Christie Comm to guide us through. It was exactly as LIlly would have wanted it in the end, we were in our home, buy her side loving her. She would have hated to be at the pet hospital and I was so happy to know I could do this for her for all the love she gave to all of us for the 11 years we were blessed to have her in our lives. Thank you from the bottom of my heart! Linda and Family"Lnida PaceWinnetkaMarch 17, 2015
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Christie Comm"I have no words for how wonderful Dr. Christie was to us when it was time for our little boy to leave us. She instantly felt like a family friend. She was understanding and compassionate and Luke felt comfortable with her instantly. We could not have asked for a more peaceful ending to Luke's life. We know, without a doubt that he felt no fear or pain, just peace. We still marvel at the beautiful memorial she wrote for him on their facebook page just from what we told her that day. It feels like she knew him his whole life. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts!"Meg DomzalskiArlington HeightsFebruary 24, 2015Luke's Pet Memorial
