Lap of Love Veterinarian: Roger Chase"Thank you for your kind words Dr. Roger. It was a very emotional day for our family and our house does seem awful quiet without our sweet gentle Hoss there. His beautiful eyes and kind spirit were more comforting than I ever realized now that he is no longer with us. We have his memories that we will carry in our hearts forever. I am so thankful to you and Lap of Love for helping us through the process. Your staff was so kind and caring with me on the phone, as were you for arriving early and helping us through, as you said, a most "impossible" situation. Utah is very lucky to have an organization like yours here to navigate end of life for our beloved pets. Many many thanks to you.."Lisa HoffmanPark CityNovember 14, 2019
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Roger Chase"to DrRoger






I will never be able to find the words to thank you enough for what you did yesterday to help our Cody move on to his next adventure in such a pain free loving way. You are a wonderful, compassionate, knowledgeable and all around good guy. This was such a better way to have the end of life celebrated instead of a rushed, loud and painful death. We are all doing so much better today because we know we took care of our wonderful Cody right to the end the best way possible. We will always miss our constant companion and will be looking forward to being with him on the other side. Thank you! You were our hero yesterday."

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Roger Chase"How kind of you Doctor Rodger! My boys and I greatly appreciated how kindly and patiently you helped Toto pass on. That meant the world to me, I'd been agonizing over how it could be possible to help him leave here without a lot of fear and pain. He was such a sweet little dog. I am definitely feeling the emptiness you referred to. My cat also misses him, she keeps going to where his bed was, sniffing around and then meowing. So tomorrow I'm going to find us another cat. I will be sure to refer anyone who needs their pet to be sent on to heaven to you. Thanks again, Michelle"HolladayNovember 12, 2019
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Roger Chase"Thank you. You were kind and i know it was your day off. There are no words to express how much this means to me. What a loving man you are! God Bless you!"Jodi CampbellWest JordanNovember 11, 2019Scampers's Pet Memorial

I wanted to send a quick note of thanks for your compassionate assistance with Sophie. Your kind and steady presence made a horrible process a little easier, and for that we will be forever grateful."

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Roger Chase"Dr. Roger was so kind and an easy person to have in our home. We loved our Sophie so much and it was so hard to see her in pain. We appreciated Dr. Roger’s help so she could cross rainbow bridge without any more pain.
Thank you"

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Roger Chase"Thank you Dr Roger for your note and for helping Buddy to cross the rainbow bridge yesterday.
It was such a hard process to let our beloved Buddy go but as you noted, he helped us to see that he was ready to go. I don’t think that it would be possible to do it if we didn’t know this.
I am grateful that we could have Bailey and Jack with us to help them process their grief. They have been somewhat subdued today and a bit clingy which think is part of their processing. Perhaps too because they can feel that we need more love.
Thank you again for being so kind and professional to us as we said goodbye to Buddy ️"

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Roger Chase"to DrRoger@lapoflove.com Thank you very much! I’ve been reflecting today on how grateful I am that this service is available and that I was able to help her pass in the least stressful way possible for both of us. It’s going to take me a while to adjust, but I know she doesn’t need to be in pain anymore."West ValleyOctober 24, 2019
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Roger Chase"To Dr. Roger I want to thank you for helping my sweet boy leave his world of pain, misery and fear... it was one of the hardest decisions I’ve ever had to make but knowing he is no longer suffering gives me some peace...I truly appreciate you and I pray that I will never have to make that hurtful decision again but if I do I know who to call..."West JordanOctober 17, 2019
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Roger Chase"Roger Chase was kind and loving vet, who made this journey a little bit easier. You could feel his concern and he was so patient with the process and very caring throughout."Bret, Hillori & Sienna HansenHolladayOctober 14, 2019Romeo's Pet Memorial
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Roger Chase"Thanks Roger. We really appreciate what you do.
It's a really big deal to us that when it's time that our dogs are not scared or anxious and everything is normal to them.
You provide that.

Thank you again for such a valuable service and to you personally."

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Roger Chase"Dr. Chase, Thank you so much for the kind words. You were such a comfort during a very difficult process. For that, we can't thank you enough. We know things will get better but now we have a big hole in our heart. I'm glad you got to meet the best dog ever. I went to the site and saw some of the memorials. They are just beautiful. I'm sure in a few weeks, we'll be able to go on and get one set up for Molly. Thanks again and take care,"West JordanSeptember 12, 2019
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Roger Chase"Hi Dr. Chase, I apologize for taking so long to respond to you. We both wanted to thank you for taking such great care of Skye with kindness and such a gentle demeanor. Skye is in heaven with our other Doberman Cliff, so I’m sure they are having a great time. Yes, we miss him terribly, but it was his time and we both had expected it for some time, It wasn’t a complete shock. We are doing well and our only child dog River is doing well. We are keeping him extra busy. Thank you again for everything. Mike"DraperSeptember 9, 2019
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Roger Chase"Dr. Chase,

Thank you for your kind words. It has been difficult and the emptiness of his passing is definitely felt. We know he is in a better place and is no longer suffering so, there is some comfort in those thoughts. I'm sure he has had a great reunion with his buddy Duke who we lost 2 years ago to cancer.

Thanks again for your services and kind words,"

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

Please know that in reading this message, I felt SO much comfort and love when I really needed it.
Thank you so much for such a heartfelt follow-up message, but mostly, thank you from the bottom of my heart for helping my baby exit this world peacefully and comfortably.
I was told when I made the appointment that you didn’t normally work on Saturdays, and I hope you know how much I appreciate you making an exception and taking time from your weekend to grant Clementine the peace that she so very much deserves.
The house feels pretty empty without her warm light, and Elliot (my big boy kitty) and I are going to have to take it day by day to get a little stronger in her absence.
I am listening and keeping my eye out for the little signs that she is with us in her beautiful spirit.
I truly, truly appreciate you and the support you’ve offered me and my little family.

Thank you for everything, Dr. Roger."

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Roger Chase"Dearest Dr. Roger,
I have thought of you many times since you left my home. Next to the original "Balm of Gilead" I can think of nothing that could have assuaged my pain of having to send my darling little boy to Kitty Heaven better than your comment about re.homing Eddie. Thank you for understanding so completely my decision to do this.

I'm afraid email represents the full extent of my online presence, but if that ever changes, I will certainly recommend you, online. For now, I will recommend you by 'word of mouth', when I am ready to talk about this.

I thank you forever for your experience, wisdom and the inspiration you give to comfort. It is no surprise, at my age to have said farewell to parents, siblings, friends, and a husband or two...and yet, nothing brings tears to my eyes faster then the memory of saying goodbye to my most beloved "Furry Kids".
as Omar Khayyam said...or someone should have said, " ...without thee, there is no paradise for me." If I don't get to be with my Critters as Ellie May, of the Beverly Hill Billies used to call them, then I ain't goin'.

The best to you Dear Dr. Roger"

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Roger Chase"Dr. Chase,
Thank you again for coming to our home, we know Annie’s last few moments were comfortable and not feeling any fear like she did at the vet’s office. Our home does seem so empty and every time I look at her bed there in the family room I am hoping to see laying there.

I will look into the Memorial today, again I thank you for your kindness and gentleness you showed with Annie and Corey and I."

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Roger Chase"Dr. Chase showed us and Annie such kindness when he arrived at our home. He has a difficult job, however he made this sad day a bit less painful with his kindness to us and his gentleness he showed Annie."Kathy ReesBluffdaleAugust 9, 2019Annie's Pet Memorial
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Roger Chase"Thank you. You made a painful experience so much better than it could have been. I will be sure to recommend you to any friends who have similar needs."Julie KuballRivertonAugust 6, 2019
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Roger Chase"I wanted to express my appreciation for the care and kindness you showed our family during the most difficult time we have experienced. I had concerns about having a stranger take part in such a vulnerable and important moment. Somehow you managed to do your job but did not once make us feel like we were just one more appointment in your day. We felt that you really cared for our pup and understood the paradox we faced with needing to let our dog go but not really wanting to at the same time. It was a peaceful and loving passing. I am grateful that you were there."West JordanJuly 17, 2019Ginger's Pet Memorial
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Roger Chase"Thank you so much. I am doing a lot better than I thought I would, I owe so much of that to you and the gentle, loving kindness you bring with you on such a sad day. I know my Ozzy is happy now and not in any pain my little fur babies mean everything to me I love them all so much. Thank you again for your kindness Dr. Roger. God bless."West JordanJuly 17, 2019
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Roger Chase"Dr. Roger,

I wanted to thank you again for helping Brash depart this life in a peaceful way. Thank you especially for playing tug with him. I know your job must be difficult at times. I wanted to let you know how much we appreciated you."
KaysvilleJuly 16, 2019
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Roger Chase"I want to thank Dr. Roger for helping with a very difficult decision I had to face yesterday, in putting my 2 precious girls into eternal rest ...so peacefully. His patience, compassion, total understanding and gentle nature gave me a big chunk of peace in this very difficult decision. He was such a blessing to me, both professionally and gently handling the situation that is so difficult. His voice as well as his manner was so calming for me, and my 2 sweet girls. If anyone has to also face this hard decision, please contact Lap of Love. The staff on the phone were also so calming and they handled my question, grief, and decision with the utmost calming voices and gentle answers to all my questions. Thank you all. If anyone reading this has to face the same decision, I recommend Lap of Love above all others that I had called.
You all will be lovingly remembered by me forever!
Sincerely,
Karen Gibson"

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Roger Chase"Dr. Roger was on time and was very kind. He was attentive and told us each step. At the same time, he respected our space and let our family grieve together. He accommodated our request to perform the procedure outside in our yard. Our baby was able to pass away peacefully and unafraid."Andrea KaplanHolladayJune 22, 2019Sheldon's Pet Memorial
