Lap of Love Veterinarian: Toby Goldman"Review for Lap of Love: Please do NOT use this service!!! In the next few weeks, I will take time to write about the horrid experience with "Lap of Love" and Dr. Toby. After beginning life abused, my doggie adopted me and she grew to trust and live a very wonderful life...only to leave this life in shear pain and tortment! Immediately upon being injected with the first injection by Dr. Toby, my doggie screamed in pain and went wild. Had I known that was what would happen, I would have not chosen this way for my doggie to leave; I was told that my precious doggie would leave peacefully; Lap of Love assured me, repeatedly, that all would beautiful. This departure was anything but that and more. I am devastated and will need to take time to grieve and then chronicle this event. Please, please rethink using this service!!! Take the time to research a better way for doggies to not be in pain and trauma as they depart.
P.S. It is now 4 month since this horrible experience and I am just now submitting this review. I've been diagnosed with PTSD because of what a extreme event!!!"

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Toby Goldman"Dr. Toby,

Thank you very much for your kind words and your thoughtful manner. This is one of the harder experiences that you will have to go through in life as a fur-mommy. I just really want to express that your demeanor that day and the way in which you explained the process in detail really helped to put me at ease in such a terrible moment of our life.

I know it must be difficult to see people grieving on an ongoing basis, I can’t imagine anyone more suitable for the grace that it requires than you in this position.

God Bless-
Marsha Chalmers :)"

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Toby Goldman"I was referred to Lap of Love when my dog Riley was losing his battle with lymphoma. I spoke with Lisa on the phone and from her voice and kind words, she was perfect. All was arranged and Dr. Toby arrived on time and was so empathetic to what we were going through. This was a kind, humane and stress free process that made Riley's passing so easy and gentle."Kelly Blakesleelas vegasJune 16, 2019
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Toby Goldman"As it was clear that my Dog, Frankie's time had come, I inquired at my Vet about end of life services at home and they gave me your number. The woman on the phone seemed very compassionate and made an appointment for the next morning, Dr. Toby came over and understood the pain we were feeling and was kind and patient as he guided us through the process. I want to thank all of you and I cannot express my gratitude for your service. Allowing Frankie to die at home, literally in my lap, in a humane manner is something I will never forget and always be thankful for. Thank You"Donald BarlowLas VegasJune 15, 2019

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Toby Goldman"There are not enough words to express how much I appreciated Dr. Toby. Our Poopsie passed away on 6/3/19 and Dr. Toby was there to help us give Poopsie the love, care, and respect after he passed away. Dr. Toby took the time to sit with me just to talk about Poopsie, how he came into our lives to his last day with us. The care Dr Toby showed Poopsie, from the time he walked in the door until he left, it was as if Poopsie were his cat.

From the moment I had to call to make the appointment and spoke with Adam, the Veterinary Care Coordinator, to the point when Dr Toby took our Poopsie away to be cremated, was exceptional.

Poopsie will be greatly missed, but I knew in my heart he was in good hands with Dr Toby. I would highly recommend using this service. I never felt rushed; whether it was making the appointment or when Dr Toby was at my house. They both took their time and listened when I needed to breathe.

Thank you Dr. Toby & Adam, we could not have had a better experience without both of you. My husband and I will remember you both for your kindness.

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Toby Goldman"I will never forget Dr. Goldman and the kindness that he showed us at a very painful time. I knew that Jager deserved more in his final moments than a cold steel tray as his last memory, and Dr. Goldman gave that to us.
Dr. Goldman sat with us on our back patio on a beautiful morning with the birds chirping and made sure that we knew every step that was to come next, and that we were prepared, and did not move forward until that time.
He also gave us comfort in knowing that when Jager left with him that Jager would be treated with the respect that he deserved
As Jager went in peace so did I. I never felt so comforted at losing a pet as I did that day.
Thank you Dr. Goldman for that loving peaceful memory."

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Toby Goldman"Dr. Toby took such compassionate care of my 18 year old kitty, Mickey. I felt completely cared for as he talked about how much energy caring for an elderly and sick animal can be on us. He's a very special doctor who took his time explaining exactly what would happen and that I could take all the time I needed. My sweet Mickey passed away with me loving on him and I could feel the peace surrounding us. I knew for years that I wanted someone to come out to my home for Mickey, and I feel so blessed to have had Dr. Toby to take such precious care of him."Shannon PushawLas VegasMay 22, 2019
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Toby Goldman"It was a desperate time after hours, on a Saturday, before Mothers Day, when I called for help. Dr. Toby Goldman's schedule was rearranged to accommodate our need first thing in the morning. He was everything and all that made Bernie's crossing over tolerable. Bernie was among friends on his arrival, he spoke quietly, explained the process, anticipated my questions before I could ask and was patient. As his profession, I am grateful and humbled by his manner. Thank you Dr. Toby Goldman for what you do in the most dire hours of need."Geraldine SandmanHendersonMay 18, 2019Bernie Brillo's Pet Memorial
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Toby Goldman"At such a painful and stressful time, Dr. Goldman showed us and our dear little Cedric compassion, gentleness and professionalism.

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Toby Goldman"When we had to make the dreaded phone call, Lap of Love was there for us. Fortunately, Dr. Toby was able to come out that same day and give our fur baby the most kind and compassionate care we could have asked for. We prayed for a peaceful and calm experience for our beloved dog and that is exactly what we received. Everyone at Lap of Love treated us with kindness, patience and understanding. Our difficult time was made a little less difficult. Thank you, Dr. Toby for guiding us through a terribly heart wrenching process. Your tenderness with our fur baby was extraordinary and meant the world to us. You have a unique and valuable gift. Thank you for doing what you do. We are forever grateful."Denise DitsworthLas VegasMay 13, 2019Gipper's Pet Memorial
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Toby Goldman"After 18 years of wonderful love my wife and I knew in our hearts it was time to say goodbye to LILY. We found Lily at a shelter in 2001 after being rescued from the streets and she was only 6 months old. Our girls were 10 and 7 and they couldn't have been more excited and Lily became an instant part of the Giammalva family. Through 18 birthdays. Christmases and 100's of parties Lily's presence and unique personality made her unforgettable to all that met her. She was never sick and followed her Mama (Lisa) everywhere she went, until what we called the 5 pm bewitching hour. EVERY night a 5 pm LILY would leap our 7 foot fence which bordered a very exclusive golf course and charge anyone in her way.( her way of saying HI and I want to play) Lily really began to slow down the last 2 years and after making a decision to move to Vegas last April we really didn't thing she would make it 60 days.But in LILY fashion she graced us all with another Christmas. The last 4 months have been hard, still never sick she began to fall a lot and we could never leave her, we could see the pain in her eyes. I always wanted to ignore it because I had no idea how to deal and what really to do. Thank god for Lisa (my wife) she began to research and came across LAP OF LOVE. We made the call and set the appointment for 48 hours later and those 48 hours were painstaking. The appointment was set for 4 pm and when I heard the knock on the door my heart sank and the tears began to flow, and in walked in what I am now calling Lily's angel his name Dr. Toby Goldman . WOW ...JUST WOW!!!! He was the most calming force during this very emotional time. He evaluated the situation and began to comfort us with what he already knew, his very caring and nurturing way really put Lisa and I at ease. By NO means was the easy it truly was the hardest thing I have had to face, but can honestly say DR. TOBY GOLDMAN made this experience BEAUTIFUL!!!!! Lisa and I THANK YOU and Lap of Love."Jeff GiammalvaLas VegasMay 8, 2019
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Toby Goldman"Yesterday was a sad day indeed. In the last few weeks I have known our 15 year old Golden Retriever Captain Jack's days were very numbered. He'd shown all the signs, even as much as seemingly 'telling' me he was ready, in his own way, and giving up on life in the last few days. I couldn't imagine how I was going to get this big boy up into my truck and to the vets. A friend recommended Lap of Love and the in-home euthanasia services. I can't say enough about how great this process was. Dr. Toby was so gentle, caring, kind and compassionate. There was no stress, and no rush. He understood the uneasy feelings I was having. He connected with the other dogs in the house straight away. It was such a pleasant experience to watch our old Jack ease out of pain, and pass. The other dogs were sitting near by to say good-bye, as if they truly understood. I appreciate this service so much, and highly recommend it to anyone in this situation."Stephanie BrownLas VegasMay 3, 2019
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Toby Goldman"Knowing when it is time for your furry children to go is so incredibly hard. We truly wanted every last minute we could get with our little Bismarck, but also didn't want him to suffer. I wish I would have known about this service with our other dogs, as I believe all animals should have the opportunity to pass from this world in such a peaceful and loved manner, right in their own homes where they feel the safest and loved.

Dr. Toby was just so wonderful and we will forever be grateful for his kind words, gentle touch, and professionalism in walking us through this process. He took his time with us and just being able to sit alongside our little guy on his own bed, took away so much fear and anxiety. Dr. Toby made such an emotional experience so much easier to bear than we imagined. I will never have those awful fears in my head of whether he suffered or not. What a wonderful gift he gives to so many families."
