Lap of Love Veterinarian: Kayla Stomack"This morning we sent our 15 year old yellow lab, princess McKenzie, flying off to heaven. Dr. Kayla was compassionate, caring, loving, patient and kind. She made a emotional and difficult decision comforting and peaceful. The procedure occurred at our pace and provided lots of time for goodbyes and tears. Thank you Dr. Kayla for creating a peaceful journey for McKenzie as she joined God in heaven. Highly recommend Dr. Kayla and Lap of Love."Debbie BeyerHarrison TownshipOctober 1, 2019
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Kayla Stomack"Dr. Stomack was absolutely amazing from the moment she walked in the door and met our sweet Marlie and began loving on her. I cannot imagine a more perfect person to comfort not only us, but also our sweet baby on such a tough day. It was both the toughest and easiest decision we've ever made, and Dr. Kayla reassured us that Marlie was ready. We are so thankful for her compassion and dedication to this cause, as our Marlie was able to cross the rainbow bridge surrounded by people who love her, in her favorite spot in front of the fan! Marlie gained her angel wings, but Dr. Stomack is the real angel. We will be forever grateful for your mission to provide this service. Dr. Kayla-I'm sure Marlie and Luke are running, and playing, and talking about how amazing you are!"Sarah & Doug GlassfordSt. ClairSeptember 28, 2019Marlie's Pet Memorial
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Kayla Stomack"It's been 2 weeks since we said good-bye to our sweet Bailee Sky. She was a beautiful 10+ year old Merle Great Dane. It was an incredibly difficult decision to make, but it was the right decision for her. Not so much for us.
Our veterinarian suggested Lap of Love to me, as she knew how difficult it was for Bailee to get around, get in/out of a vehicle, etc. Ultimately, we also didn't want her "last road trip" to be going to the vet.
I still cry because I miss her, my kids still cry, even our granddaughters who didn't really pay much attention to her asked about her the other night when they came over for a sleepover. More tears.
I can't speak highly enough of the care & compassion that all of us received from Lap of Love. From Sara who answered the phone, answered all my questions, sent encouragement, to Dr. Kayla who was amazing, so compassionate, and even Faithful Companion was so caring and compassionate as well.
I still find myself telling Bailee that I'll be right back when I have to leave the house, only to remember that she's not with us. When it storms, (she hated storms), I still tell her that she doesn't have to be afraid anymore.
Thank you so much for your compassion in our sorrow, for the cards that you sent, and just for caring about each family member that loves their fur babies."

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Kayla Stomack"Dr. Kayla made the sadness of Mario's illness more bearable, and helped us make the right decision regarding his death with compassion and dignity.

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Kayla Stomack"There is no easy way to go through such a horribly painful experience but Dr. Kayla Stomack was so very kind and gentle with me and most importantly, my baby Calvin Chi-Chi (kitty). Every step of the process was thoroughly explained and I was given alone time with my baby boy to say goodbye and give plenty of kisses. My love Calvin was taken away in a beautiful basket with blankets and pillow for his sweet head and I got to walk him out for one last goodbye. All my questions were answered, I was never rushed and the most important part of all, my sweet baby boy left this earth very peacefully and gently."Amy ZappitellChesterfieldJuly 17, 2019Calvin Chi-chi's Pet Memorial

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Kayla Stomack"It was painful to put our little Maya to rest, but Lap of Love was a very compassionate way to end her suffering. Dr. Kayla was very patient and helpful to me and my son, Charlie, that day. My daughter, Cecilia, came home from camp the next day and Maya’s ashes were brought home a few hours later.

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Kayla Stomack"Dr. Kayla was so gentle and respectful during our time with her. She was so very helpful in answering all our questions and explaining at each step of the process. If you are considering Lap of Love, I would say YES!! Every person we encountered through Lap of Love was so wonderful and thoughtful throughout the process They did everything and more. She made a paw print for us to keep and snipped a couple tufts of our dogs hair to keep. So thoughtful. We were so stressed out, but Dr Kayla put us at ease.

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Kayla Stomack"Dr. Kayla was so very kind and gentle with my poor old kitty Nico. She was a big help to my mom and me, as well. I highly recommend her for genuinely caring about my pets and family. As I sit here tonight missing Nico, I am comforted to know that we spared her a scary trip to the vet's office in her advanced age. Her final moments were painless and spent in my arms in her favorite spot on my bed. Thank you so much, Dr. Kayla."Amy MarinoSouthfieldFebruary 26, 2019

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Kayla Stomack"Dr. Kayla, I cannot express enough of how thankful I was to have found Lap of Love. As hard as it was to say goodbye to Luke, you were amazing. So gentle, kind, compassionate and understanding. I was thankful that we didnt have to make Luke walk to the car, be anxious in his vet's office and be in an uncomfortable environment that our pets have when they go to the vets office. He was at home, his own home on his favorite place to lay, in his own atmosphere surround by his family in a place he called home. You were very loving and kind and it meant the world to us. For something as painful as saying good bye, it was also beautiful in the way of him being home and he loved getting all his treats in while you got him comfortable. I wasnt sure what to expect but after I read your bio on the website, I knew it was the way to go and you also had your own Luke. You knew our pain and treated our baby as if he was your own. I cant thank you enough for that. I highly recommend to anyone who is in this type of situation, to use your services. Thank you and may God continue to bless you in the work you do..."Debbie ZucalSterling HeightsFebruary 1, 2019Luke's Pet Memorial
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Kayla Stomack"This was maybe the toughest thing my wife and I have ever faced...our dogs ARE our children and losing this one to cancer has been devastating. Kind, patient, and compassionate are the best terms to describe Dr. Kayla Stomack. Being at home as a family for Betty's last hours were a godsend: the sun was shining on us, sitting on our favorite couch...we hugged her until here final moments and everything just felt right.
Contacting Lap of Love to come to our home was a decision we are so thankful for, I will never again do it any other way.

Thank you Dr. Stomack for your compassion and Shelley Furne for helping us through all of this in the best manner we could imagine. We truly appreciate your devotion to your clients and your obvious love of our furry little family members!

Sincerely,
Robert and Jamie Sala"

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Kayla Stomack"My family and I wish to thank Dr. Kayla. What a blessing from the moment she walked into our home till she left with our Sadie. I am so happy a man at the vet gave me one of your cards, he could see Sadie and I were struggling. I never knew a service like this existed but now everyone I know with a dog will know. This was one of the hardest things I have had to do letting go of Sadie. The hole in my heart is feeling better and will in time. My Daughter-in-law is a RN and this impressed her so much she wants to go into End of Life Care. Our whole family can say nothing but praise on how Kayla showed so much compassion and love for what she does. She is truly a Asset to your field. Thank you Dr. Kayla for spreading my Angels wings and sending her home with all our love. We will see you again."Linda BushMadison HeightsJanuary 9, 2019
