Lap of Love Veterinarian: Brad Bates, VMD"After his diagnosis with a terminal illness and several months of successful symptom management, our beloved Axel Foley, a member of our family for 13 years, passed on peacefully to the next great dog park where he will be united with many of his life-long friends. This transition was assisted with the compassionate, empathetic and professional care of Dr. Brad and Lisa. We thank them profoundly for their assistance and comfort through this difficult, but necessary for Axel's sake, transition. We will always cherish the fondness and love we shared with Axel during his life-long journey.

The decisions we faced during this phase weren't easy but after our relationship with these wonderful folks, we know they were the right ones and the best for Axel.

We sincerely Thank You!"

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Brad Bates, VMD"I would highly recommend Lap of Love to any pet parent.
Compassionate, empathetic from the initial contact to the very end and beyond.
Dr. Brad was so reassuring and comforting to our family through this difficult event.
Our "Gentle Giant" Jake left us peacefully in his own bed surrounded by his family in our home.
When the time comes that we are faced with this difficult decision again, it is a relief to us
knowing Lap of Love will be there to help and comfort us.

"Thank you" to a very special group of people."

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Anne Mitchell, VMD"Dr. Anne couldn’t have been any kinder! She was there for us last year with our Honey- and yesterday for our Buddy. We will forever remember the caring nature of Lap of Love staff."Diane RizzoHavertown, PennsylvaniaJune 12, 2019Buddy's Pet Memorial
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Melinda Glavin, DVM"On Saturday Dr. Melinda came to our home to put our boy Jake down. Jake had hip dysplasia, and a tumor growing in his throat. It was the hardest phone call to make to set it up but I am so glad I used Lap of Love. Jake used to get so much anxiety going to the Vet and I could not see putting him through that just to put him down. He was very relaxed and unbothered by Dr. Melinda. Dr. Melinda explained everything step by step, and Jake went peacefully to the Rainbow bridge. I can not thank Dr. Melinda enough for her kindness and support.

Lap of Love is wonderful, I am so glad we were able to send our boy to heaven in the most comfortable way possible. He was our life and we are heartbroken.
We just received his ashes today and we are so glad to have him home. I would highly recommend Lap of Love for home care services for your pets."

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Brad Bates, VMD"We just needed to put our almost 10 year old Kate down due to intestinal lymphoma. She was always terrified at the vet's office and I couldn't face having her last hours marked by fear. Lap of Love was recommended by my vet and I contacted them. They were extremely compassionate and the arrangements were very easy to make. The vet that came was Dr. Brad. He arrived on time and gave us all the time we needed to say our last goodbyes. He was very gentle with Kate, in fact she didn't even cry when he gave her the first injection. Her passing was peaceful and compassionate. I would definitely call Lap of Love in the future if I needed to put another pet down."Marie CassqadySouthampton, PennsylvaniaJune 8, 2019
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Anne Mitchell, VMD"I had to let my precious girl, Nutmeg, go yesterday. Dr. Anne came to my house. She was the most caring vet I've ever met. I know my girl was at peace with her as well as I was. I was a bit reluctant to do this at my home but I promised my girl when it was her time, it would happen at our home. It was the best thing I could have done. Dr. Anne is totally awesome!! I don't know how she can do this all the time but her compassion is off the charts! She not only gave me & my family Nutmeg's paw print, but she gave us locks of her hair. Dr. Anne hugged us all several times which was wonderful & soothing. I gave my girl a wonderful send off & I know she appreciated it. I wish we could be so compassionate to human beings as we are with are beloved fur babies.

Thanks Dr. Anne!"

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Anne Mitchell, VMD"When my dog daisy was diagnosed with a cancerous tumor, lap of love provided me a way to care for her with love and dignity. She was very anxious at the vets and just wanted to go home. I have told the story countless times how it provided both Daisy and I with the comfort of familiar surroundings during such a difficult moment. I will be forever grateful that Dr. Anne and your service were available to help us."Kirsten Johnson Mooreardmore, PennsylvaniaMay 22, 2019
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Brad Bates, VMD"There is not enough space to say all the wonderful things about Lap of Love. This was my second time using Dr. Brad and he will ALWAYS be my choice to help my beloved pets pass and cross the Rainbow Bridge. Of course, the pet's comfort level is of utmost important. No stress going to the vet's office, which most dogs do not like. They are able to pass on their own dog bed, sharing it with the owner's arms wrapped around them, whispering how much you love them enough to let go so they feel no more pain.
Alternatives are discussed with pros and cons and they do not rush you to decide. Time is of no essence because they definitely are there for you and your pet at this most difficult time with outstanding compassion. Like I said, I could go on and on, but I would and have recommended Lap of Love to everyone. Four people I have recommended them to have used Lap of Love and have called me back to say how wonderful they are in a time of sorrow."

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Melinda Glavin, DVM"Dr. Melinda was an absolute blessing to us and to Brighton. The kindness and tenderness that Dr. Melinda showed for our Brighton warmed our hearts and was so comforting. With Dr. Melinda’s support and guidance, we were able to keep Brighton comfortable during his last moments, and she was there to help shepherd us through the final stage of Brighton’s life.

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Melinda Glavin, DVM"The most compassionate and caring doctor we have ever dealt with for our pup. Melinda not only showed our dog her love she shared it with us and made this very difficult situation a bit easier to deal with. She treated Chrissy as if she was her own personal dog and when she wrapped her in that beautiful pink dog blanket and laid her in the basket our hearts were broken but also at peace. Thank you Dr. Melinda!"Carol & Tom DunleavySpringfield, PennsylvaniaApril 20, 2019Chrissy's Pet Memorial
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Toni Knox, DVM"We had to say goodbye to our beloved dog at a young eight years old. That reality was heartbreaking, but Dr. Toni made our day as good as a bad day could be. She was polite, professional, and prepared to answer our questions and proceed at our pace. We very much appreciated her courtesy. In addition, she went beyond the strictly relevant dialogue to note how beautiful, sweet, and well-mannered our dog was. It was lovely to see her appreciate him. We said a blessing for our dog, and, unprompted, Dr. Toni thoughtfully knelt with us and said amen. We will always miss our pup, but we will never regret the decision to have Dr. Toni join us on that day. Thank you, Dr. Toni, for your kindness and professionalism."Philadelphia, PennsylvaniaApril 19, 2019
