He will never be forgotten and again thank you for your caring and making all as comfortable as possible. It was important that he passed at home being loved.
Goodbye General

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Amy Parrish"Amy was very sweet to us and our furbaby. She took the time to let Hugo get to know her and even let him rumage through her bag a bit. We didn't want to drag the process out, Hugo had a great last few days and ultimately was suffering the morning of. We all knew it was time. She was very respectful of our property and choices and walked us through everything. She handled our pain very well and we are forever grateful that after a month of nothing but vet offices and ER Animal Hospitals we were able to have Hugo's last moments with us in the comfort of our own home, in his favorite spot, under the trees in our back yard. Thank you for everything."Deanna GilmerTempleJune 4, 2019Hugo Eugene Gilmer's Pet Memorial

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Becky Frank"My wife and I did the hardest thing we have done. Dr. Becky was outstanding, she was sympathetic from the time she walked through our door. She showed understanding and compassion as we went through the process. Lilly was in outstanding hands the entire time. The entire thing was extremely peaceful. Having it done in our home allowed us to ensure our other dog understood what had happened. This was also a great service as he was able to relax and not worry where we took our girl. Thank you for providing this service."Andy LongOrwigsburgApril 24, 2019
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Becky Frank"Dr. Becky allowed us to feel more comfortable with the experience. Her gentle, calm approach and way of explaining the process was very helpful. As hard as this decision is to make as a pet parent, I feel it's the best way for your pet to go....surrounded by the people he or she loves.....it's as close to actually "dying in their sleep" which is what we all hope for so their pain is minimized. At least in this scenario, they don't die ALONE as they might if they naturally died in their sleep during the night or while you were away from home. Dr. Becky followed up with an email to us the next day to check on us and offering a sympathetic ear if we needed to talk. I would recommend her and Lap of Love anytime!"Dawn WilliamsMohntonApril 10, 2019Kate's Pet Memorial

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Amy Parrish"Dr. Amy,
I couldn’t be more thankful for how you handled our loss. Your soft spoken manner and your tenderness with our boy will never be forgotten.
It was also very healing for me to have your support when I was questioning myself even to the end. Even letting me know that some cancers could have been responsible for his excessive drinking .....thank you from the bottom of my heart.

Thank you again. You are a blessing.
With gratitude,
Elizabeth"

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Amy Parrish"Dr. Amy Parrish showed great care and kindness in helping Mocha transition. Dr. Amy also spent some time with Mocha when she first arrived so Mocha became acquainted and comfortable with her. It was not stressful for Mocha because she was in familiar surroundings and was resting on her favorite pillow on the couch, with Dr. Amy sitting next to her. Mocha's transition was painless and peaceful, and freed her from the suffering she was experiencing during her last few days. We were greatly relieved to see how the initial sedative shot put Mocha into a deep sleepy state, just like how she used to sleep so deeply and was the first rest and peace she had in days.

There is no question that in-home end-of-life transitioning was the best thing for Mocha. Because Mocha did not like to travel and became more skittish in her later years, and she usually needed two days to get back to normal from a trip to the vet, we could not imagine the extreme stress from driving her to a clinical setting. It would have been unbearable for us to see Mocha in such stress in her final moments. This is not intended to disparage end-of-life transition support at vet clinics and their important critical care services, but simply that it was not the best approach for Mocha."

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Becky Frank"I thank you all for your kindness during this time of sadness. I needed a veterinarian to come to my home and help me make this decision. My vet would not come to my house but recommended Lap of Love. I am so glad this service existed for my dear girl. She hated going to the vet and it stressed her out terribly. I could not possibly have taken her their again. Thank you again for your time and devotion."Carol GerhartGilbertsvilleNovember 6, 2018Abigail's Pet Memorial
