Lap of Love Veterinarian: Roger Chase"Dr. Roger was very nice and professional. It was hard because we did not have a relationship with him like we did with our veterinarian, but we were happy that someone could make our dog pass peacefully at home. She did not suffer, in fact she never moved. He treated us with respect. This must be a hard job, but we are thankful that someone sees the importance of it."Claudia FruinSALT LAKE CITYMay 20, 2020Scarlett Jane's Pet Memorial

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Roger Chase"Dr. Chase,

I thank you so much for your nice email. And I am also really grateful for you and what you helped me through yesterday. The home does in fact feel quite empty without Oscar there and I am dreading cleaning up his things, but I'm sure in good time all will be well.

I've regretfully shared the news with friends and family and am seeing how many people truly loved sweet Oscar. Thank goodness for these animals who touch our lives and thank you so much for kind. gifted people like you to help us help them and get through times like this. It all happened so fast and I'm glad you helped me with your expertise.

A memorial seems appropriate.
Thank you again for reaching out.
I will recommend Lap of Love any day."

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Roger Chase"Thanks for making such a sad experience more bearable. I would opt for that over in-office in the future for sure. Even though my past couple of experiences were nice. We miss him so much, but I know he's in a better place. I will check out the memorial page.

Thanks for the nice email."

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Roger Chase"We had such a positive experience with Lap of Love. First Isabelle was so nice and caring when we made the difficult call to make the appointment for Dr. Chase to come out. Our 13 year old German Shepherd Leroy had been gradually losing the use of his back legs. It was an agonizing decision to schedule his euthanasia. Leroy was always so traumatized by visits to the vet, it was such a blessing to have him pass in our home with my wife, son, and I. Dr. Roger was so caring and it made for the best possible outcome for a terrible time. Lap Of Love is a wonderful service."Jim ThomasSouth JordanApril 27, 2020
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Roger Chase"When it came time for my cat, Averie, of 19 years to be released from his pain, I found that my Vets office could only accommodate coming out to my car and taking Averie inside to euthanize him without me being present, due to COVID-19. It was hard to imagine after so many years together not being with him at the end. When I found Lap Of Love was still offering their services, with the safety of all in mind, it was the first sigh of relief during this hard time. Then, seeing that my cat would get to stay in his home and not be scared at the end of his life and for a very small difference in the price compared to the vets office, I felt that it was meant to be. I will be forever grateful to the compassion shown by Lap of Love. They made one of the worst days of my life bearable and more meaningful than I ever thought the process of euthanasia could be. Dr. Chase explained everything ahead of time and kept us updated during the procedure. He was very professional, yet was also able to make us feel comfortable and at peace in our own home. I will always choose Lap of Love for any of my pets in need. So grateful to have found them during this difficult time, words cannot express how much."Sara ElseaWoods CrossApril 25, 2020

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Casandra Huelin"Dr. Cassandra, Paul and I couldn't have put Ricky to rest without you. Given the strangeness of COVID-19 times, we didn't know if Lap of Love could help us give Ricky the deserved closure and peaceful passing in our home.

We were blessed with a beautiful sunny day to say good-bye, and your loving patience and care helped us more than words can say...... thank you for taking care of my lil boy..... you are the best."

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Roger Chase"After my cat Bentley had struggled with kidney disease for years he had a traumatic stroke at home late at night. He went from totally fine to pain and horrible distress causing him to be extremely violent. There was no way I could get him to a vet in his condition or mine. I had been referred to Lap of Love by my vet for when the time came, but the time came sudden and traumatically with no warning. I had to get a family member to come over and call while I did my best to comfort and control him. It was the worst hour of my life. In about an hour Dr. Chase arrived. He saw the situation immediately and stepped in with calm and ease as well as empathy. He immediately gave him a sedative so that my last goodbyes could be peaceful and calm. That was a gift in itself. I'm sure it's different when you chose a time to say goodbye, but that wasn't my situation and Dr. Chase was able to provide me the only calm moment all night. He was very unobtrusive. After I said goodbye to Bentley now finally relaxed, I let him know I was ready. He left a pamphlet I found the next day and was gone without me even noticing he had left. I could not have been more grateful for his coming to my home and helping me in such a painful situation. For how traumatic is all began, it's amazing he was able to get it to a place of peaceful goodbyes. Thank you for giving me that one last nice memory."Katie RockwoodWest JordanApril 1, 2020

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Roger Chase"Bronson McKendrick
Best dog ever!
1/2006 - 3/2020

You came to us
sent from above
to show us all
the purest love

In an instant
right from the start
you won a place
inside our heart

Seems like not so long ago
you were just a pup
we watched you grow

Your ears stood tall
your eyes shone bright
you watched over us
throughout the night

Up each morning
school with the boys
barked all the way
we loved your noise!

Then came Koda
your little bro
yet you were the alpha
and you let him know

Taught him how life
'round here would be
by being you for him to see

My Bronson boy
we've had so much fun!
and like your mom (Jeri)
you loved to run

With your words
you'd let me know:
"C' Mon Dad! I wanna go!"

Run like the wind
the grass you'd burn
wait for the ball
until your turn

You gave us love
with all your heart
and from our family
you'll never part

Your valiant spirit
your Nobel soul
Oh Bronnie boy
we won't be whole

And with your spirit
that touched us all
we know from heaven
you'll hear our call

So off to Jesus
and God above
we send you now
with all our love

Free from the handsome body
that you wore out
to run again
and bark your shout

In fields of gold
without pain
thanks for all you gave
leave not in vane

There is no way
we shall forget
our Bronson boy
our bestest pet!

RIP Bronson
We love you FOREVER!

We want to thank Dr. Roger for his kindness, compassion & patience. He was the exact person our family needed during this time. We would like to thank you a million times over."

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Roger Chase"Dr. Roger,

How can we ever thank you not only for helping my Bronson boy out, but our family. Yes, it was very difficult to say the least. Just knowing he is at peace and running like the wind once again makes it a little more bearable.

He truly was and still is one of God’s angel doggies! His is definitely missed around here. Koda has been terribly depressed but he does know he has passed. He doesn’t look for him like he did when Bronson would go to the groomers. They are so intelligent. I have read the literature you provided for us and want to thank you, it has helped.

I played ball with Koda yesterday, it helped us both. The first couple of days was terrible, I couldn’t talk on the phone and didn’t want to leave the house. I / we felt like we were missing part of us. Literally! It was so strange.

I will look at the memorial site today. Myself and my family will be leaving the poem Barry wrote for Bronson. We have already been referring you out Roger, you are so kind & compassionate everyone needs when it comes to this time in our pets lives. We honestly can’t thank you enough.

Sincerely,"

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Roger Chase"Dear Roger,

Thank you Roger for your kindness and this letter is so very sweet. You comforted me and talked me through this difficult time. Your care for my Angel and the respect you showed her made me feel respected as well.
The work you do can't be easy, but you do it with grace and dignity for the animal and owner. Although my Angel didn't understand your help, I did and I thank you for that. She is no longer in pain.

The house was so sad yesterday, and I'm struggling to go home today, she was my world and my love. No words can express how much I loved that little girl. I wanted to protect her and give her a loving life and I feel I failed her. I miss her meows to wake me up in the morning, I miss her laying on my neck and purring as she head bumps me, I miss playing with her and watching the goofy things she would do when she scared herself. I remember one time she got spooked and ran so fast through the kitchen she couldn't get her footing and slid into the fridge, I laughed so hard.

I pray her spirit is in heaven pain free, and I hope she forgives me.


Thank you again and it was a pleasure meeting you,"
