Lap of Love Veterinarian: Leslie Krienke"This is an amazing service. Having to say goodbye to a family member is hard enough. Having to take them to an uncomfortable location to do it makes it worse, for the pet and the loved ones. I can't tell you how happy we were to find Lap of Love. Having the Dr. come to the house, where Morgana was most comfortable, was a Godsend.

Dr. Krienke was simply the best. She treated us with kindness and our poor girl, Morgana, with kindness, sympathy, dignity, and gentility. She explained the procedure in detail, step by step, and allowed us all the time we needed to prepare ourselves. It should also be noted that she did this under difficult circumstances during the Covid outbreak. My wife, Linda, and I couldn't have asked for a better Dr. or a better way to handle an emotionally impossible situation.

It should also be noted that our girl, who suffered from end-stage cancer, slid downhill abruptly the night before and Lap of Love was able to have Dr. Leslie here the next day before noon, so our girl didn't have to suffer long. Linda and I were so grateful for that.

Trust me, when the time comes to make the hard decision, you won't go wrong by calling Lap of Love."

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Leslie Krienke"We are so grateful to Dr. Leslie and this amazing organization. As much as we wanted to keep our Dewey with us forever, we knew in our hearts that we needed to let him go. What we wanted most for Dewey during this most difficult time, was to allow him to be wrapped in our arms, hearing our voices, in his favorite space with his favorite people. Dr. Leslie gave us every bit of what we wanted. She was very careful to explain every step of the process. She addressed our fears about the timing of our decision. She gave us all the time we needed throughout the entire process. We never felt rushed. The basket she provided was beautiful, and my son was so grateful to be able to carry Dewey to the car. We love the paw print and the fur clippings too. We also very much appreciated the follow up communications. We miss Dewey every day, but we feel comfort knowing we did the best we could do for him thanks to Dr. Leslie and this great organization.
A final note about this organization in general. They were amazing to work with. We called on a Saturday morning and they told us exactly when to expect them to arrive, which gave us time to emotionally prepare. Dr. Leslie came into our home during the height of the pandemic to provide this service. We really appreciate her taking that risk for us in our time of need. - The Ward Family"

She gave us plenty of time to say goodbye and explained wach stage of euthanasia to us so we knew what to expect. She treated Maxx with the utmost respect and care. For that I am very thankful.

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Brad Bates"The whole process with Lap of Love was kind and compassionate...from the time I sent the e-mail to request help with the passing of my kitty to the phone call with a very understanding Coordinator, to the more than understanding phone call from the vet to say he was on his way and (on time), to finally the end where the Dr. answered a lot of my questions about my pet's disease and her untimely passing. They let me and my family know what to expect, actually delivered on those words, and were the kindest people through the most trying time of our lives."Violet SmithDrexel HillNovember 23, 2020Dora's Pet Memorial
