Lap of Love Veterinarian: Jessica Wilbourne"I have nothing but great things to say about Lap of Love. My dog was terrified of going to the vets, so we took a great deal of comfort knowing she could go peacefully in the home she loved in a stress free environment. Dr. Wilbourne was extremely compassionate and provided a gentle touch to the entire process. We were impressed and comforted by her presence. She kept us informed the entire process and treated our dog with the utmost respect. We are very grateful to Lap of Love for making such a difficult time a little bit more manageable. Thank you Lap of Love."Kerry McIntyreLansdaleNovember 17, 2019

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Jessica Wilbourne"Jessica was WONDERFUL with helping me transition my baby into the afterlife. She allowed me to hold my boy through the heart wrenching process. She knew this was the hardest thing I would ever experience and provided me with time to say all the things a mommy says to her baby before he leaves her arms for forever. She provided me with a plaster cast of Cageys Paw print and clippings of his beautiful red and white fur. She spoke gently and compassionately. She allowed Cagey to drift into a gentle slumber and waited for his snoring to commence before the final shot was administered. Its those moments that I will always remember. I got to hold him and listen to him snore knowing he was a happy and content upon crossing the rainbow bridge. I was able to hold him for as long as I wanted and have that much needed alone time. I am glad she was able to visit my home as Cage was terrified of the Vets and I didn't want him to be in fear his last hours on earth. This service brought a difficult time and made it easier and more comfortable for Cage and Myself. I will Highly recommend to anyone that will have this difficult decision to make. Jessica was compassionate and very sweet. I thank you for your services."Tara GatesChalfontOctober 16, 2019Cagey's Pet Memorial

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Jessica Wilbourne"Dear Dr. Wilbourne, I wanted to reach out and say thanks so very much from the bottom of our hearts for you kind, tender, sweet and compassionate care of our little 14 year old Coton de Tulear, Cassie, also know as Sassy Cassie the Wonder Lassie, on Sunday September 22nd in Oreland, PA. Carrie and I agonized about the final decision and the timing. We had friends that highly recommended Lap of Love. From the time of my first telephone call to the service to watching you turn the corner in your jeep with our little one wrapped in her families arms with the blanket we supplied, what will always be a sad time is held in our memory as the most generous, loving and heartfelt gift to us in our loss, to Cassie as she crossed to the Rainbow Bridge and to you with giving us the kindest gifts of all....time, compassion and understanding. In a time of such pain, loss and heartbreak, we are so glad you were with us and helped us through the entire process. We want to thank you for the 3 Paw prints and locks of hair, for your follow up email on Monday and for you sympathy card that we received yesterday. How kind and how thoughtful! In the best Irish tradition, we had 2 Wakes for Cassie!!!! A group of neighbors who all knew, loved and took care of Cassie at some point and in some way over 14 years came for wine and Cassie stories on Monday night. We made a little picture "shrine" in the kitchen so everybody could see her over the years. We did the same on Tuesday for another friend who could not make it on Monday!!!! Our girl was Honored!!!! Please know how gifted you are at what you do and how we will never forgot you. Please let me know if I can be of any service in the future. All the best and all our love, Keiren and Carrie and Cassie!!!!"Keiren O'ConnellOrelandSeptember 26, 2019
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Jessica Wilbourne"We could not imagine putting our dog down in any other way. Dr. Jessica in the bucks county region of Pennsylvania showed such compassion . It’s as if she knew our family and our dog personally. I have no higher recommendation to give her. I too am a physician."Carrie OgorekOrelandSeptember 24, 2019Cassie's Pet Memorial
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Jessica Wilbourne"Our cat was diagnosed with mast cell carcinoma and his health deteriorated quickly. We made the difficult decision to euthanize since we could not watch him suffer any longer. He had stopped eating and grooming. Our cat never liked going to the vet. From the carrier to the office, he would fuss. The last thing we wanted to do was cause undue stress during his last hours and in a sterile, unfamiliar environment. We wanted him to be in his bed, in his home. Our daughter was aware of Laps of Love and we contacted on a Sunday. They made an appointment for Monday, which was unexpected but much appreciated. I cannot praise Dr, Jessica enough. She was empathetic, sympathetic, understanding, patient and very professional. She was very gentle. I, for one, was very apprehensive to stay in the room since I didn't want that image to be my lasting memory. But I will say here that it was a very peaceful passing. I am glad I stayed. I highly recommend Laps of Love if it ever comes time for you to make this very difficult decision."John DANDREABLUE BELLSeptember 18, 2019

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Jessica Wilbourne"We recently made the very hard decision to euthanize our beloved collie of 12 years. Our vet recommended Lap of Love. The care and compassion that Dr. Jessica Wilbourne showed was incredible and exceeded our expectations. She made a very sad personal life event beautiful. Our family dog died outside on our back patio surrounded by family. Couldn't ask for better end for a wonderful family dog. We thank Dr. Jessica. xo"Erin SjoholmRydalAugust 22, 2019

I'm so glad we spared our pet a stressful trip to the vet, and I will forever appreciate Dr Jessica's patient, quiet, and peaceful presence during this really difficult moment in our lives.

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Jessica Wilbourne"Dr. Jessica was very compassionate with Eddie in his last moments. She explained everything carefully and gave my son and I the time we needed to be with him. He went very peaceful as if he went to sleep.
I am so glad we had him at home in his final hour of rest.
I was so upset when he was leaving that I forgot to take off his collar and didn't remember until a day later.
I called Dr. Jessica and she said she had it and would stop by and bring it to me. I was so ever thankful as it meant alot to me."

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Jessica Wilbourne"Its a heart wrenching decision we, as loving pet owners, have to make. But, it was time to let my Ivanhoe leave this world peace. For 15 years Ivan shared his love with us and all of those he met along the way. Giving him a comfortable, familiar, loving place in my arms to leave this world was the last thing I could do for the dog who gave me so much. Dr. Wilbourne was so kind, supportive and reassuring to us during this difficult time."Stephanie FoxLambertvilleMay 11, 2019

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Jessica Wilbourne"When it came time to release our girl Bella to heaven, we knew that we wanted to make this event as comfortable as possible for not only Bella but for us as a family. Upon finding Lap of Love and researching Dr. Jessica's profile, I knew she would be a great person to come and assist us in letting our furbaby go in peace.
She was so sweet to our children, who are 9 & 3, and explained to us the process, even answering their questions. She treated us & Bella with the utmost respect, kindness, and compassion. We can't thank her enough for spending time with us and for helping making this difficult time a little bearable. We miss our Bella terribly, but we know that she is in a better place.

Thank you Lap of Love & Dr. Jessica!"

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Jessica Wilbourne"The horrible reality of pet parenthood is that our pets will enter old age and be frail and terminally ill long before we will. We don't expect that of our "babies."

Dr. Wilbourne was quiet, sensitive, kind, and compassionate. She came in and gave me a hug seeing that I had been crying all day long and for days before. Her sweet and empathetic approach was precisely right for me and for my poor, dying kitty. He passed very peacefully without a wimper or movement of any kind. It truly was as though he just fell peacefully asleep.

Such a refreshing change from the awful, heart-rending experiences I've had before after driving cats to the vet to be put down.

Lap of Love costs a bit more than taking your pet to the vet, but it is so, soooo, worth it. Plus the counselors you call on the phone to set up the appointment are all caring and kindhearted and will listen to you for as long as you wish to talk. Never will you hear background call-center noises and they never once will tell you they have to go because they have to take another call.

They will listen to you talk about your sweet baby and his/her funny antics and why you love him/her so much for as long as you need. And they will empathize and share stories with you about their own beloved fur babies who are now over the rainbow bridge.

This is the first pet I've ever had to have euthanized that I felt so at peace about, not questioning myself at all as to whether I made the decision too soon or if I picked the right date or the right doctor."

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Jessica Wilbourne"I am eternally grateful for Dr. Jessica. Through the initial hospice consultation, her thoughtful care, concern, and guidance helped me to make what seemed like an impossible decision. I felt at peace knowing that I was doing the best thing for Georgie.
Georgie never cared much for the vet's office, so I am extremely appreciative of the at-home services provided by Lap of Love. Georgie deserved a peaceful passing in the place he felt most comfortable - at home with his Daddy. I will always be thankful to Dr. Jessica for being there with Georgie and I during our final moments."

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Jessica Wilbourne"We could not bear putting our best friend Lee in the car to take him to the veterinarian's office. Dr. Jessica was so kind, professional and compassionate. We were able to say goodbye to Lee in the comfort of his home, something he certainly deserved after all his years of loyal companionship. Thank you for being there for our family."Brenda FinnLanghorneMarch 12, 2019
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Jessica Wilbourne"Dr. Jessica was very respectful, gentle, and professional. She was a pleasure to work with, and even thought to include our dog in the process of saying goodbye to our cat Penny, which I never would have thought to do in the moment as we usually need to put him in another room when a stranger is visiting due to his excitability and anxiety. She let us take our time saying goodbye and we did not feel rushed at all."Patricia KnowlesHATBOROFebruary 3, 2019Penny's Pet Memorial
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Jessica Wilbourne"Dr. Jessica was vital in the type of passing we wanted for our Sylar. She was kind, polite, respectful, supportive and loving.
