Lap of Love Veterinarian: Mary Devlin"Dr. Mary quietly helped me and my family cope with losing Charlie, our cat, staying with us for almost an hour answering questions as she walked us through the process. It was very reassuring having her there that we were doing the right thing at the right time for Charlie. Thanks, Dr. Mary."Rick SnedekerCambridgeOctober 12, 2019
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Sally Lynch"Dr. Sally was kind, affectionate, and knew exactly what our sweet Roxy needed.

Words can not express the amount of gratitude I have."Suzanne TollandEAST WALPOLEOctober 3, 2019Roxy's Pet Memorial
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Sally Lynch"Dr Sally Lynch was amazing during one of the hardest days of my life. She was calming, sympathetic and truly cared to get to know our Jack. She allowed him to stay on his favorite spot on our screened in porch for his final moments. It was a beautiful day and the sun was beaming down on him. He was never scared by her presence and the whole experience was peaceful. There were many many tears as I lost my best friend. But when I reflect on his final moments, I could not be happier that we were able to give him such a peaceful and lovely death. Thanks so much to Dr Sally for her warmth, compassion and kindness during such an unthinkable time in our lives. She even wrapped my Jack up beautifully in a blanket and placed him in his little box so I didn't have to do it. I was so grateful for this act of kindness. Thank you, Dr Sally from the bottom of our hearts."Lisa DisarioNorwoodOctober 2, 2019Jack's Pet Memorial

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Sally Lynch"Dr.Sally Lynch was phenomenal and made a very emotional experience much easier for my Jady and for our family! She was tender and sweet, understanding and definitely made this very sad experience much easier for all of us, especially our beloved Jady.
And to help out with this situation even more, she had made for our family a plaque of our Jady’s paw 🐾 prints and also left a small booklet of poems , etc; for our family to have and read through with Jadys name on it with her date of her passing. Thank you so very much Dr. Sally Lynch for being the veterarian who we were all so blessed with on 9/9/2019."

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Sally Lynch"Dr. Sally was amazing. She felt our grief, she listened to Rayna's story. She stopped at one point to help my husband when his anxiety began high. She helped Rayna and she helped us. To us she will always be an angel who helped us at a very difficult time."Gail InferrereWaylandSeptember 9, 2019Rayna's Pet Memorial

Thank you so much !"

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Sally Lynch"We are so grateful for the peaceful, caring, expertly managed end Dr. Sally gave our dog Sammy two days ago. Sammy had always been afraid to go to the vet, so when it was clearly her time, we knew we wanted to give her an experience that was calm and loving and lacked any stress. Dr. Sally brought some treats Sammy clearly enjoyed even in her condition, and she went to sleep right after finishing some tasty food, clearly her ideal end as delicious food had been one of her greatest pleasures in life (she was a lab mix). We are still grieving our beloved Sammy but could not have asked for a more perfect experience either for her or for us. Thank you so much to Dr. Sally and everyone at Lap of Love."Talia BOULANGERWESTFORDJune 30, 2019

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Sally Lynch"Our first experience with Lap of Love starting with our initial call to inquire of their services brought us much comfort. Dr. Sally Lynch came to our home and immediately knelt beside our dog Callie, started talking to her and massaging her. Callie was always an anxious dog, Dr. Sally's love and compassion made Callie calm and this was evident through the whole process. She also expressed empathetic concern for my four small grandchildren and gave them each a coloring book to deal with their loss. They were not present. Callie was removed from our home with gentleness and dignity, she was gently put on a gurney and covered with a fleece blanket and had a pillow for her head. It was comforting to see her in such good hands, which made the whole process more bearable.
Thank you Lap of Love!

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Sally Lynch"Dr. Sally Lynch was wonderful. She was a calming and comforting presence the moment she walked in the door. I didn’t want to put my precious baby (or myself) through the trauma of the trip to the vet. I had two other cats that were euthanized at the vet’s office, and I probably waited longer than I should have, making it more of an emergency situation. I decided I didn’t want to go through that again or put my precious baby through that either, so I decided on home Euthanasia. My precious kitty was 19 years old and failing. It was time. Dr. Sally was very kind and loving, and treated my baby like she was her own. My precious girl crossed rainbow bridge peacefully in my arms at home. I have her paw print and a lock of her fur as a keepsake as well as her ashes.
I highly recommend using Lap of Love home euthanasia. It was more than worth every penny. Thank you so much Dr. Sally for your care and compassion in helping me get through this difficult time."

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Sally Lynch"When kidney disease reached an advanced stage in our beloved cat of 19 years and he was almost too weak to stand, we had to take the terrible, heart-wrenching decision to call Lap of Love, putting his welfare above ours.

We worried about how this would go, whether our cat would experience pain or discomfort in his last moments, but knew it would be selfish to postpone this any longer.

How lucky we were that Dr. Sally Lynch was the one that came to our home! She's a wonderful vet and a wonderful person and we needed both qualities as our beloved cat passed on. She administered the first sedative so carefully and expertly that our cat didn't even notice, and just kept surveying the living room as if nothing had happened. The second dose made him pass on peacefully without even a twitch. She made two exams, half an hour apart, to be sure that everything had gone as it should.

There just are no words that can express how grateful we are to Dr. Sally Lynch for her thoughtful, expert, highly professional manner in helping our cat in his last moments.

We will never forget, never, how Dr. Sally Lynch helped our cat so much in his last moments. God Bless you, Dr. Sally Lynch!!!"

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Sally Lynch"Every process through Lap of Love was amazing. From Tina answering the phone and consoling us all to Dr Sally's compassion, warmth and kindness to all but most importantly to Cinnie. Dr. Sally made the hardest goodbye a little easier. The kindness she showed in every step of her process was heart warming. She was able to make it possible for all her people to be around our precious Cinnie in her favorite spot. Dr. Sally Cinnie says thank you for the donuts ! Thank you all for your kindness you all are special people with beautiful souls."Michele MacNeilRoslindaleApril 19, 2019Cinnie's Pet Memorial
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Sally Lynch"Good morning Dr. Sally

I just wanted to respond back to you with this email when the time was right. Today seems like the perfect day!
Euthanizing Ruby was the hardest thing I have ever done. It took me two hours to go over whether it was the right thing to do for her. Then I came to the conclusion that I didn't want a stress filled suffering emergency for her or for my family. I wanted a peaceful, calm, loving, family oriented end of life for her. All of the things that Ruby used to Love she could not do anymore. The bad days out numbered the good. I just wanted you to know that Heather and I are extremely grateful to all of you at Lap of Love for a Top Notch Experience. I cannot think of my best friend going out of this world in any other way.
From our Hearts to yours.
Thank you for helping us threw an extremely emotional time. Your professionalism and kind hearts helps to ease some of the pain.
All our love,
Katrina, Heather and Ruby :)"

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Sally Lynch"It has been one week now since we had to say goodbye to our beautiful cat Jaime, after 16 wonderful years with her. Jaime was just days old when she was found outside in a drain pipe, cold and alone and crying, so young her eyes weren't even open yet. Because I was working from home, I was able to care for her, bottle feeding her as she grew and ignoring the vet who said she probably wouldn't make it. Make it she did and then some, and for the next 16 years she ruled our house like a little lion.

After a very healthy life as an indoor cat, Jaime started showing signs of oral cancer three months ago. The one thing we knew for sure was that we would not let her suffer, so as soon as the quality of her days started to decline, we did our research for someone who would be available to come into our home when the time was appropriate. We found Lap of Love online and I called and set up the appointment. From that very first call all the way through the process, everyone I spoke with was so compassionate and kind, which I really needed given my heartache at knowing I must say goodbye to my baby.

Dr. Sally Lynch arrived right on time and I can't say enough about her compassionate and wonderful demeanor throughout the entire process. I was a wreck but I was also ready because I knew Jaime was ready, which was the most important thing. Dr. Sally made something so incredibly difficult that much easier, and it was an absolutely perfect transition for Jaime. We took our time and she explained everything that would happen and what to expect each step of the way, which was so helpful.

Dr. Sally was amazing. Thank you, Lap of Love, for providing this wonderful service, and thank you, Dr. Sally, for your huge heart and perfect demeanor in helping grieving parents transition their beautiful babies. I just can't thank you enough.
And we'll see Jaime again in her meadow of boxes and bags. 💝"

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Sally Lynch"Dr. Sally was perfect. She walked in with compassion and concern and walked out with my baby boy, at rest. She gave him what he needed, a place to rest."Taylor CramptonNewtonApril 8, 2019Joobie's Pet Memorial
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Sally Lynch"Dr. Sally made this very difficult time as comforting and gentle as it could be. Our sweet Tyson was able to stay in his favorite spot surrounded by his family while Dr. Sally told him what a good boy he was and helped ease us all thru the process. We miss Tyson so much but we are thankful to have had Dr. Sally there to make him comfortable and help us. She made a paw print that we keep with his photo and brought some materials for helping our son through the grief process. Thank you for your kindness and compassion Dr. Sally."Kristine DoyleLynnApril 4, 2019
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Sally Lynch"Our 16 year old kitty Roxy had been winning the battle with lymphoma for 4 years; but, lately, not so much. I did not want to bring her to the vet knowing what decision would have to be made. I talked to our vet, she totally understood and gave me a couple of hospice veterinarians that traveled. Below is what I told Animal Rescue League about the referral of Lap of Love:

Your referral of Lap of Love was so helpful. Dr. Sally was here yesterday. She was was wonderful. You can feel good when you give out their number for a hospice vet. She was here almost 2 hours, never made us feel rushed or embarrassed for caring. She respected Roxy totally.
Thank you for 16 years."

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Sally Lynch"Dr. Sally Lynch was very compassionate, loving and caring towards Buster and his loved ones. She gave us that extra support and love during a very difficult time. We miss Buster very much and our house feels very empty now. We are very thankful to Dr. Sally for the wonderful atmosphere and respect she provided to Buster and family. God Bless you!
Love and hugs!

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Sally Lynch"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"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.

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Sally Lynch"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 HillMarch 18, 2019
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Sally Lynch"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 ChristopherWestboroughMarch 12, 2019Princess's Pet Memorial
