Lap of Love Veterinarian: Will Basinger"Making the decision to let our precious JB, who had been in our hearts and home for over 16 years, go was not an easy one. But a series of incidents, failing health, and, more importantly a continued lessening of quality of life for our boy convinced us that it was time. My vet recommended getting in touch with Lap of Love and, because we preferred to keep JB at home in his final moments, we did.
Dr. Will came to our house and couldn't have been nicer, kinder to JB (even bringing a jar of peanut butter!), and more respectful of our emotional state. Quietly and compassionately explaining everything to us, Dr. Will let us know that he would proceed at our pace, as we were ready.
Nothing was left to chance or confusion. Dr. Will had every detail covered, and guided us expertly through the sad experience. He was so gentle with JB and acted like he had known him forever.
After having experienced Dr. Will and Lap of Love, I will never consider the difficult task of deciding on when my pet's last day will be again without requesting them to help us manage this very emotional task.
I had several interactions with the staff of Lap of Love on the phone both before and after the procedure, and everyone I spoke with was kind, professional, and aware of the sensitive nature of their business and my emotional condition. I would like to thank all of them for their wonderful customer service and for the valuable service they offer pet owners who truly care about their fur babies."

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Will Basinger"I can't thank God enough for sending Dr. Will Basinger to us. We were terrified at the idea of even getting her into the car to take her to a vet's office. But God helped us by sending Lap of Love. He made everything so peaceful for her. His immediate attention to her with a huge jar of peanut butter calmed her sown. He explained her condition more to us, something we didn't get from the vet that diagnosed her, and knowing then how much pain she truly felt reassured us that we were doing the best thing for her. He then helped us say goodbye. His compassion, kindness, empathy, and overall energy was a blessing to us during this time. There's no easy way to say goodbye to a furbaby but having someone like Dr. Will to come to your home and make it as peaceful as possible made it manageable. We won't ever forget him!"Rebecca ManleyWest ColumbiaSeptember 26, 2019Diamond's Pet Memorial
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Will Basinger"As hard as it was to say goodbye to our baby girl Diamond, Dr. Will was an answered prayer. His compassion and empathy and overall care he showed to us truly made this a peaceful goodbye at home. We are so grateful for his help during such a sad time. We were terrified but he helped reassure us that we were doing the best thing for her. We just truly feel that God sent him to us to help and would absolutely recommend him and Lap of Love to other pet families who are facing the same difficult decision. Thank you Dr. Will Basinger!!!!! We won't ever forget you or what you did for us today."Rebecca ManleyWest ColumbiaSeptember 16, 2019
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Will Basinger"I could not bear the thought of driving to our vet and having my dog euthanized in a clinical setting. Lap of Love was very compassionate and professional. My dog did not suffer. She just rested on her favorite blanket and ate some peanut butter while the sedative was being administered. Definitely worth the extra money to reduce the trauma to my dog and to us."Karen WilsonColumbiaSeptember 3, 2019

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Will Basinger"Dr. Will is a caring and loving individual. He was there for our family during a difficult time. He spent 2 hours with the family before the decision to euthanize our dear Ginna in our home surrounded by her pack.

I cannot thank him and the team at Lap of Love for helping our family through this. He gave empirical data to us, allowed us to be guided through the process, and made Ginna's transition across the Rainbow Bridge peaceful and loving.

He carefully attended to the entire family's needs, answered fully our questions, and was truly a gentleman and the care giver we needed.

He allowed everyone to grieve the loss of our dear loved one, including our other fur babies. Once we settled, he gently and lovingly prepared our darling for transport for her private cremation.

All I can say is thank you all."

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Will Basinger"Dr. Will made this process as painless as possible both for our beloved hound Blueberry and for us. We knew that Dr. Will was a good person when Beauregard (one of our other hounds) gave Dr. Will lots of "Beau Love". Beau doesn't make friends easily but he took a liking to Dr. Will immediately.

Thank You Dr. Will."

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Will Basinger"Dr. Will was a blessing to us. At his initial visit, we thought we'd have weeks or months to enjoy Priya's company and love her up. Sadly, only two days after that visit, Priya took a sudden downturn. Dr. Will responded immediately to my message that she was suffering and was at our home very quickly. Offering her an easy transition from suffering to peace was the last gift I could give Priya, and Dr. Will compassionately made that possible. I am grateful to him and to Lap of Love."Jennifer WheelerGilbertJanuary 2, 2019Priya's Pet Memorial
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Will Basinger"We were struggling with how to make our Buddy’s last days/hours peaceful and not more of a struggle for him. One of the emergency vets in our area recommended Lap of Love. Dr. Will came to our home within an hour and made us feel relieved with our choice almost immediately. His bedside manner with not only Buddy, but his struggling family was something none of us will ever forget. Buddy passed calm and peacefully on his favorite bed, a baby crib mattress (he had many) with pillow and blanket by the light of the still lit Christmas tree. It doesn’t take away the sadness, but every single one of us feels that it was the right decision for Buddy. No anxiety, home comforts, his family surrounded him and he got to meet another beautiful soul, his favorite thing to do. Meet new people. Thank you for your kindness, compassion and being here Dr. Will."Rea LoftisWest ColumbiaDecember 30, 2018Buddy's Pet Memorial
