Lap of Love Veterinarian: Lisa Rodin"While having to let go of our Braxton was the worst thing, Dr Rodin made it far better than it would have been if we had to take him to the vet instead. She was kind and caring and came to the house so his last moments could be at home in his happy place."Jessica BickfordChoctawNovember 30, 2020Braxton's Pet Memorial
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Lisa Rodin"I can't begin to express how grateful my whole family is for everything you have done to help us through this process. Given how hard the situation was and still is, you have made the whole process better than I could have imagined. I have the utmost respect for you and how strong you are to be with us and many others during their last moments with their beloved pets. I will cherish the last moments I was able to spend with Greta and now the memories I have to remember her. Not only have I felt so much pain after losing her but before it happened, I kept thinking I was making the wrong decision. You helped my husband and I realize that even though the decision was hard and not one we want to make, it was the right one. I felt her heart until the very end and during the last minutes, she seemed like she was at so much peace and for the first time in a while, not in pain. Thank you for giving her peace and being with us through it all."Kelleen RoarkYukonNovember 2, 2020
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Lisa Rodin"Dr. Rodin was wonderful. She treated me and my sweet boy Jasper with respect and compassion throughout the entire process. I will forever recommend this service and Dr. Rodin to anyone who will listen."Whitney MeyersMooreSeptember 16, 2020Jasper's Pet Memorial
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Lisa Rodin"Dear Dr. Lisa and Lap of Love,
We could not have hoped for a better outcome. Dr. Lisa was very professional and respectful. This must be hard work, so I am extremely thankful to her and Lap of Love for providing these services. Dr. Lisa came into our lives as gently as she left. She was patient as we set up at the lake, and Jack got to explore his surroundings and confirm to us that he was happy. We got to be with him as he peacefully left us. The house feels the same, but Jack is not walking around the backyard when I glance outside, he is not following me around the house, or laying on his cushion, or checking over his shoulder to make sure I am following him, but I am so happy he is no longer suffering. Dr. Lisa slowly drove away with sweet Jack, while my husband and I remained at the lake looking out over the water and remembering Jack's antics. A perfect day to send him on his way and remember how he graced us with his gentle life."

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Lisa Rodin"We wanted our beloved Spirit to last forever
But his old worn out body could not endeavor.
He gave ALL he had every single day
Love, Companionship, and always wanting to play.
One day he finally met his match,
Which will some day catch us all,
So we did the right thing,
And made "The Call".
Dr. Lisa came to our home in this time of grief,
And granted Spirit his one last wish,
That wish of relief.
In his home with his family and friends,
Spirit got to cross that Rainbow bridge.
Thank you Dr. Lisa for understanding our tears,
Thank you Spirit for your loyalty and love
Over the past 13 years."

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Lisa Rodin"Dr. Lisa showed an amazing amount of compassion and care when taking care of our baby. During this very difficult time everyone I spoke with was understanding and helpful. Lap of Love Ashley, Cindy and Dr. Lisa Thank you for your thoughtful assistance."Renee BroceusNormanAugust 31, 2020Thor's Pet Memorial
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Lisa Rodin"Thank you for your kindness and understanding during a very difficult time for our family. Sasha had seen us through many seasons of our lives, so it was especially hard for us to say goodbye. However, I have to say that it would have been far more difficult in a different setting, or if we could not have been there. We appreciated your gentle nature, compassion and patience while helping us all navigate the process, and when we look back, we will always be grateful that we could be there for the peaceful transition for Sasha. As hard as it was to let her go, I take great comfort in knowing that her struggle is over and that she was surrounded by her family when she passed. Many thanks for making that goodbye experience possible for us."Oklahoma CityAugust 11, 2020
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Lisa Rodin"I was referred to your organization through Yukon Hills Animal Hospital. After reaching the reality it was time to let Gizzy go, of course I called several friends that I trusted as animal lovers and people that I knew had a good heart and understood I wanted it to be personal and compassionate and not feel like we were taking him to an institutional environment where we’d wait in line and feel like we were being handled by someone going through the motions so to speak.

One good friend's wife recommended Lap of Love as well and after speaking with her I knew your organization was the right choice for Gizzy and us.

Once you arrived, your instinct and bedside manner took over and it further solidified my decision in choosing Lap of Love.

You really touched our hearts. You took a very difficult situation for us, taking the lead from the beginning and led us by the hand through the hardship and in the end we could both smile and know that Gizzy made the transition unafraid and loved."

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Lisa Rodin"We are so thankful for Dr Lisa. Initially I wasn’t sure how I’d like this but the entire process was great and changed my mind. Dr. Lisa helped our family and honored our boy Stanley. Thank you very much."Cale PowersNormanAugust 1, 2020
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Lisa Rodin"Dr. Lisa made this difficult, inevitable decision so perfect. Stinkerbell's last memory was the nap she was taking in the grass & breezy sunshine in the yard she chose to be her lifelong home. Dr. Lisa was gentle, compassionate and professional, answering my questions clearly from the huge loving heart she brings to this most difficult decision. I don't have a vocabulary large enough to thank her as deeply as she deserves. Also, everyone I spoke to in the course of making these arrangements was patient, kind, informative and helpful. Dr. Lisa lit this difficult path with grace & compassion."Melissa MouldNewallaJuly 29, 2020Stinkerbell's Pet Memorial
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Lisa Rodin"Hello Dr. Lisa,

Thank you so much for your kind & thoughtful words, they mean a lot. I appreciate the tender care you provided to Cash and your loving manner & unhurried words. It was a rough day yesterday and today too but I know in my heart and mind, he was telling me he was ready to go. It’s hard when you think you see them from the corner of your eye or hear them catting around but I know those thoughts will soon fade. It was especially meaningful that you imprinted his paw and left the booklet. I couldn’t bring myself to look at it until today but there are some words of wisdom which helped me get thru the day.

Thank you again for your kind note. It means more than you know to move Cash along in a peaceful, home setting—he left a happy kitty knowing he was loved, without anxiety, worry, or pain. Thank you for that."

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Lisa Rodin"Dr. Lisa was so nice and compassionate. When she came in the house and immediately started talking to my sweet boy Charlie. You could really tell this is her calling. She explains everything ahead of time so you know what to expect. She was really just so nice. I'm really glad my vet recommended Lap of Love and Dr. Lisa"Alissa Dunn-StephensEdmondJuly 9, 2020
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Lisa Rodin"Thank you so much for the kind words and thoughts. It has been a very difficult week, as you can well imagine. I really cannot thank you enough for your willingness to come to my home on such short notice. It was such a difficult decision to make, and too much time between the acceptance of the inevitable and action would have been debilitating. Your compassion and understanding allowed me to have a final morning of normal with my best friend without stressing about time and dreading what was to come. Your calm demeanor and efficient processes made all the difference during an otherwise unbearable time. I miss Goofy so, so much and the tears are still flowing freely; however, I am so glad that I began researching Lap of Love a year ago, and I am very much at peace with the decision to go that route. Thank you, again, for everything."Oklahoma CityJuly 7, 2020
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Lisa Rodin"I miss Sparky, and so do Felix and Miss Kitty. The house is so much quieter without him here.
I’m grateful you were able to free him from suffering. I can’t thank you enough for what you do.
Thank you for your kindness and compassion."

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Lisa Rodin"Dr. Lisa Rodin was amazing, she not only made Zoey feel comfortable and at peace she made us feel very comfortable and at peace with our decision."Katie WarnerYukonJune 24, 2020Zoey's Pet Memorial
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Lisa Rodin"We sooo appreciate your coming to the house to help Buddy make his way to the Bridge. It was much calmer for all of us, and I can’t imagine saying goodbye to a fur-baby in any other way now. Your demeanor and obvious caring made a situation that we’d tried to prepare for a little less sad, and while we value you in your role without question, I hope it’s a long time before we have to call for you to come again!"HarrahJune 15, 2020
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Lisa Rodin"We cannot thank Dr. Lisa enough for her professionalism, empathy, kindness, and compassion in helping our beloved Callie pass peacefully and painlessly. She was patient and comforting as we openly expressed our grief at the loss of our feline companion of 14 years. Callie was calm and serene throughout the process, almost as if Dr. Lisa was herself a member of our family. Only time can heal our breaking hearts, but Dr. Lisa did all she possibly could to help that time come a little bit sooner. We will be forever grateful to her and to Lap of Love for their loving services. God bless you."Frank & Joan MirandaOklahoma CityJune 9, 2020
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Lisa Rodin"Dr. Lisa was so sweet and gentle and very caring. She was patient and explained everything very well. I believe Blayze felt comfortable with her and he got to make one more new friend before he crossed the rainbow bridge. I am so thankful for Dr. Lisa and Lap of Love for making a hard and difficult process a little easier and a lot more comfortable."Brooke NeilMustangMay 31, 2020Blayze's Pet Memorial
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Lisa Rodin"Dr. Lisa,

We have been processing our grief, but we have spoken so fondly of you over the last few weeks. My fiance & I want you to know how thankful we are for your services on 4/29. We feel you were an angel. It meant so much to do the procedure at home. We know it was the best for Luther, as well. He was with us in those final days & hours. He never left his bed and we never left his side. We know he never felt abandoned. We cannot thank you enough for your service, especially during the pandemic.

We will always remember your gentleness with Our beloved Luther. You were so very considerate and it truly touched my heart.

I also wanted to thank you for your hand-written note and card. It was so thoughtful and it brought me such comfort. Thank you for recognizing how important and special Luther was to us.

Thank you for your kind and gentle soul, Dr. Lisa. You are so greatly appreciated. I do not have enough words to thank you for making this transition so loving and gentle, for Luther and for us.

Luther was a loyal and delightful companion. He was also rather handsome. The love we had for him will remain in our hearts always.

Much gratitude"

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Lisa Rodin"Dr. Lisa Rodin was professional and compassionate. She didn't judge. As a pet owner, you know your pet isn't getting better, they're only getting worse. You want to keep them as long as possible even though it's for selfish reasons."Matthew WeberOklahoma CityMay 28, 2020Roosevelt The Doodle's Pet Memorial
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Lisa Rodin"Dr. Lisa was so kind. She took her time with us and we didn't feel rushed in saying goodbye. Everything was on our terms and she was very good at communicating how everything would go and what she was doing. Everything was so easy and peaceful. She was a joy to have in our home for such a big moment. I'm so thankful for Dr. Lisa and LapofLove. I would 100% do this for everyone of my pets."Fallon BrooksOklahoma CityMay 21, 2020Truvy's Pet Memorial

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Lisa Rodin"Thank you for coming into our home and helping us keep Sadee from suffering. We so appreciate you being willing to come in and offer us, and Sadee, your assistance to transition during this unprecedented time. That was one of the hardest decisions I have ever had to make. That little dog has been through so much with me. Sadee was with me when our daughter went off to college, she was with me when we lost my beloved Daddy, then when my Mother came to live with Sadee and I for 2 years while she was on Hospice, as well as while my husband was working in Houston and caring for his parents. Sadee has been my sidekick, or partner, through all these things offering me love and comfort. Losing her represents the loss a huge source of love, care and comfort and I will always feel such gratitude towards her for being by my side. I miss her constantly at this point, but I know time will help heal this void and I will never forget her. I promised her as she was leaving me that nothing and no one could replace her and if/when I got another dog to love that I would be sure it was a rescue that really needed a good home and I would never forget her. I look forward to getting her ashes and am watching for a “sign” that her spirit made it to Heaven and she is with my Mother again. Thank you for making the process of her leaving us as pleasant as possible. We are telling all of our friends and neighbors about Lap Of Love and Dr. Lisa."Oklahoma CityApril 24, 2020
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Lisa Rodin"We’re deeply thankful for home hospice caregiver Lap of Love & Dr. Lisa for her caring support today. She was kind & gentle; & loved on our sweet boy. Chip was able to leave this world in peace with his family, in the comfort of our home; & his comfy bed, favorite blankie, his dragon as his favorite toy, & his Christmas bone that he never chews, just likes to hold. I’ll send more later about this amazing organization. For now, we thank everyone for their texts, calls, love, and support during this difficult time."Melissa & James Huelsman-KernsMooreMarch 19, 2020Chip's Pet Memorial
