Lap of Love Veterinarian: Sally Lynch, DVM"Dr. Sally came over and was just amazing. She completely checked Mikko over and was able to provide me options of continued care or euthanasia. What was really important was that she named specific things Mikko was doing that indicated he was not well. For instance, I explained how his sleeping posture had changed a bit, and she told me it was probably because he wasn't able to feel comfy. She explained how his hyperthyroidism had probably reached a point where medication would no longer work and how exhausting that would be for him.

She was great at explaining exactly how everything would go and went very slowly.

We got Mikko into his favorite cuddling position on my lap, and the first injection made him sleepy and super cuddly. She was gentle as she touched his paws and the whole time, kept telling him what a good and sweet boy he was. She explained that Mikko could hear us and it was good to keep talking to him.

As she began giving him second injection, again explaining the entire process, I could feel him become still. I asked if he was gone and she said he had passed on.

She gave me a few minutes to be with him and then helped get him into a basket with blankets and she covered him up so he just looked like he was taking a cozy nap.

Dr. Sally was solicitous of how my other cats may react and helped me with ways to help them but also, ways to help myself.

With no exaggeration, having to put my sweet cat to sleep was the hardest thing I've ever done, and Dr. Sally made it completely pain free."

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Sally Lynch, DVM"Dr. Sally Lynch was so caring and kind to Dusty and my family through this difficult time. We were all lucky to be part of Dusty's life and also his end of life. It takes a special person like Dr. Sally to come in at the end of life and help make the decision of what is best for your pet. Thank you for helping us through this process."Linda PerryRoslindale, MassachusettsMarch 22, 2019Dusty's Pet Memorial
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Sally Lynch, DVM"Dr. Sally Lynch was everything you would want someone to be in a situation like this. She just came to help our almost 17-year-old cat transition from this life to the next. She was gentle, kind, and caring. We so appreciate her thoughtfulness and care during a very sad time for our family. The prices were reasonable for home vet care, and we are so grateful we were able to allow our sweet, darling boy to have his last moments be as peaceful and gentle as possible."Sara MurrayChestnut Hill, MassachusettsMarch 18, 2019
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Sally Lynch, DVM"I had already researched Lap of Love and knew I would be calling them when it was time. When that time came and the oncologist told me that my girl was deteriorating quickly, I called Lap of Love to make the soonest appointment. Two days later, Dr. Sally showed up for our appointment. I did not know what to expect. However I just wanted to say that Dr. Sally went above and beyond my expectations. She turned an otherwise very very sad day into one that was treated with such grace, sensitivity, respect and dignity. Princess left this earth so peacefully and comfortably, and Dr. Sally ensured that the experience for us was one that was exceptionally beautiful. I cannot thank her enough. I’ve been unable to write any of this down as I’ve just been too sensitive, even though it’s been three weeks to the moment when my girl passed. However I want everyone to know what a gift Dr. Sally is."Joanne ChristopherWestborough, MassachusettsMarch 12, 2019Princess's Pet Memorial
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Sally Lynch, DVM"Thanks to Lap of Love and Dr. Sally. She made the passing of our beloved Rottweiler Remy, about as easy as such a thing can be.
She is compassionate as eases you and your pet into it. Cant thank Dr. Sally and Lap of Love enough. I called in the morning and she was at my house before 11:00. Also made a nice paw imprint. I would highly recommend their services."

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Sally Lynch, DVM"Dr. Sally is such a kind, compassionate, caring and loving person. From the moment that she entered the room, you could feel her love for our Wilson. This was such a very, very difficult time, but Dr. Sally made it easier. I just cannot praise her enough. Thank you Dr. Sally!"Ann MarcoliniAttleboro, MassachusettsMarch 3, 2019Wilson's Pet Memorial
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Sally Lynch, DVM"I could not have been happier with how tender Dr. Sally was with Janis. She confirmed my decision in the most comforting way possible, and made the entire ordeal as smooth as it could have been. There was no doubt in my mind she was the right person to help me give Janis her angel wings. She was gentle, kind, discreet, and understanding."Margo RomanowskiBrighton, MassachusettsFebruary 22, 2019Janis Joplin's Pet Memorial
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Sally Lynch, DVM"When Fenway, my senior Boston Terrier, made it clear to me that it was time to say goodbye, I was completely panicked that his fear of the vet would make his last moments miserable. Although Fenway was always wonderful with the people that he trusted, he was unfortunately reactive with strangers, which made every trip to the vet a complete nightmare for both of us. Although the last few days without Fenway have been empty, I have taken great comfort in knowing that his last moments were peaceful, comfortable, and even joyful thanks to Dr. Sally Lynch.

Dr. Sally went out of her way to be patient with Fenway and to work with us to make sure that he was cozy in his bed, surrounded by those he trusted when it was time to say goodbye. She was happy to proceed at whatever pace was best for us and was so kind and gentle in every way. Despite the heartbreaking loss, I feel so incredibly grateful each day that we have only warm and pleasant memories of saying our goodbyes. Thank you so much for the gift you have given us."

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Sally Lynch, DVM"Saying goodbye to Snoopy was one of the hardest decisions we had to make as a family since Snoopy was such an integral part of our home. But because of old age was taking a toll on his body, Snoopy’s quality of life was declining and we could see that he wanted to rest. We called Lap of Love since we wanted Snoopy to spend his last moments in the comfort of his home, and we are so glad that we did. Thank you Dr. Sally Lynch for being so kind to Snoopy in his final moments and talking us through the process. We couldn’t have asked for a better way for Snoopy to rest in peace."Mary Rikka GuillenLowell, MassachusettsFebruary 17, 2019Snoopy's Pet Memorial

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Sally Lynch, DVM"When I got the news that my beautiful 15 year old baby girl Maddie was going to have to leave us soon, our vet recommended Lap of Love. I was so apprehensive and didn’t know what to expect. Dr. Sally came to our home and had an immediate soothing and caring energy about her. She explained the entire process and let me have as much time as I needed. I cannot say enough about her. She was exactly who I needed to be there. My husband was stuck out of town due to weather (she came during a snow storm). She was gentle and kind and treated Maddie like she was her own. Thank you for making the worst day one that I can also look back on with fond memories of how peaceful it was."Samantha TerrioStoneham, MassachusettsJanuary 28, 2019
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Sally Lynch, DVM"Thank you Dr. Sally. You were kind and compassionate and helped us at a time of great distress by guiding us to make the right choice, one that was best for Bobo. He was a proud, independent dog and you helped him keep his dignity in his final hour. If I should be so lucky this is how I would like to go, slip into a deep deep sleep in the arms of those how loved me most. Thank you."Debarati Bhattacharya BhattacharyaCambridge, MA, MassachusettsJanuary 24, 2019Bobo's Pet Memorial
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Sally Lynch, DVM"Dr. Sally was amazing, she made the process feel more as though I was helping my 17 1/2 yr old Taj let go and end any pain...rather than feeling like I was "putting him down". She came in with dog pheromones sprayed on her so Taj was sniffing her all over. I held him while she injected the sedative. She let him walk\stumble around, Taj was playful and still eating his Kelly's roast beef. He laid in my arms for a few minutes and we placed him in his bed when she gave the final injection. The whole time from beginning to end the doctor talked to Taj with a calming voice and took him away in a cushioned wicker basket. Thank you Dr. Sally & Lap of Love for your service and compassion. <3

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Sally Lynch, DVM"Dr. Sally helped us say goodbye to our sweet, 14.5 year old, yellow Lab, Luna. It was a very sad moment yet Dr Sally was so patient, compassionate and respectful of the needs and wishes of my husband and myself, as well as Luna and our other dog. We put Luna down in her bed in our kitchen. I was hesitant to euthanize her this way, but it truly was a beautiful, peaceful, dignified experience. Dr Sally is truly gifted in helping all of us navigate this emotional process. I can’t say enough about how much I appreciate and respect her gentle, knowing touch. She kept all of us together. Saying goodbye to a family pet is so emotional and sad, yet it eventually comes to every pet. Lap of Love and Dr Sally Lynch made our goodbye a beautiful experience so we can remember only good memories of Luna. Thank you. It should be said that every person I spoke with as I was making these plans was compassionate, empathetic, patient and respectful. Thank you Dr Sally; thank you Lap of Love Boston."Elizabeth WilsonNewton, MassachusettsJanuary 21, 2019

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Sally Lynch, DVM"Oh Gizmo...you were just an amazing cat. You were a silly boy, a food lover, a cuddler and a lap cat. You came into our lives two weeks after the loss of Lyndsay's 19 1/2 year old cat Tawni, and you mended our broken hearts. You were part Maine Coon and part Tabby, and your huge mits (paws) could catch flies and put them directly into your mouth! You were also so in tune with us. You knew when we were sick or were having a bad day, and you were always there, right on our laps or cuddling up on the bed. You reached out with your paw to touch us sometimes; you were such a connected boy! And you could roll over on command, almost like a dog! We so miss your head at the top of the stairs when we get home, and miss your chatter throughout the day. You were the most talkative cat that I've ever met, and you had - and still have - a huge fan club! You were sooooo handsome. And mostly you brought joy to our lives every single day, even when you were begging for food in the kitchen or leaving little "presents" around when you weren't happy with the state of your litter box (You had very high standards). You were just adorable, and we miss you every day. Dr. Sally was so kind to help bring you to the other side on November 8 when you passed on. You were tired and had done your work here. We love you so much, Gizmo. You were our little healer kitty. After you passed on at 1:49 pm, and after Dr. Sally left with your body so that you could be cremated, our bedroom was filled with tiny rainbows that weren't coming from a reflection of any kind. We can only think that that was the heavens way of saying just how special you were and are. We have your ashes here at home with us. You're just where you'd want to be: close to your mommies. We will always, always miss you. 11 years doesn't seem like enough time, but we know that your body was tired. Your mommies send you kisses. Love from your mamas, Kathy and Lyndsay."Kathy McCannWatertown, MassachusettsDecember 19, 2018

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Sally Lynch, DVM"Dr. Sally was the gift Sydney and I needed to make our last days together all that they could be. We have never encountered a veterinarian who took as much time, showed as much compassion and caring as Dr. Sally.

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Sally Lynch, DVM"We really want to thank Dr. Sally Lynch who came over yesterday to help our sweet Benny move on. She was patient, attentive, and caring the entire time. She made sure we were ok but more importantly made sure that our little pug of 15 years no longer had to suffer. Sally we thank you so much.

To those thinking and struggling with this decision, we know it's hard and we know it doesn't get easier but I promise you that when you get there, there is no better person to have by your pet's side than Dr. Sally Lynch."
