Lap of Love Veterinarian: Christina Howard"Dr. Howard was kind, calm, and respectful of our impending loss. She gave us all the time we needed and her presence was soothing to us and our pet.

She carefully explained the procedure and prepared us for what would happen. Pre and post-procedure, she allowed us time with Theo.

Her presence was calming. One of the most difficult things was helping Theo through our front door "one last time." I knew he was in good hands, and he would be until we met again.

Dr. Howard followed up with an email and card post-procedure, and when we expressed that we were having a difficult time processing our loss she immediately hopped on the phone with us to provide support. Truly, without that phone call, I believe I would still be experiencing immense guilt.

This is a scary process. It's gut-wrenching and heartbreaking. Dr. Howard and the Lap of Love staff had us feeling supported throughout the entire process."

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Hannah Moloney"Dr. Hannah is so kind and gentle. It is clear that she understands the love between us and our pets. She did not arrive in a big white Veterinarian truck, she had a nice and modest station wagon and a stretcher. She also sent me a nice note and card afterward, to express her regard, and let me know she is there if I need to talk. Thank you so much, you made this very very hard experience a bit easier."Lori ArndtSnohomishJune 23, 2019Max's Pet Memorial

Having to say goodbye to my precious Birdie was extremely difficult for me.

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Christina Howard"Dr. Howard made the worst day of my life so much better and easier than I could have imagined. She was so thoughtful, compassionate, and empathetic.

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Tara Mudry"Dr. Tara was the best. She made us feel comfortable right away, took the time to love Cookie before she started, and explained everything clearly. She went out of her way to ask about Cookie's life and our life with her. When things went slower than expected, she helped us understand what was happening and why, never became impatient, and didn't rush us along. I couldn't have asked for a better experience, and I thank Dr. Tara for her support."Rhonda CummingsKenmoreMarch 24, 2019Cookie's Pet Memorial

Dr. Ashleigh was so professional and respectful of what we were going through. She was flexible so that my husband could be there and gave us a big hug when it was over. I would love to say that I will never have to go through this again but it is inevitable and a service like this made it so much more bearable for us and our dog."

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Tara Mudry"I want to thank Tara for her complete respect and calm demeanor during our experience. I was not prepared for how difficult this was even knowing for months we had to bring peace to our pet. She was beyond professional and truly helped us ease into this transition."Dawne RadcliffeSnohomishDecember 28, 2018Darwin's Pet Memorial
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Christina Howard"Let me first start by thanking Dr. Howard. The experience of putting my friend down (Bryce) is something that I wish I did not have to do. That being said Dr. Howard and doing it through Lap of Love was the best of a bad situation. I have put other dogs down the conventional way of taking them to the vet and it was extremely impersonal and confusing for our pets. Having Dr. Howard come into our home and providing Bryce the experience that he had was something that I will never forget. I love him so much and will never forget him, but for him and the peace that he and our family received by doing this way has made the transition without him easier (never easy but easier). I really appreciate everything and though still numb inside felt compelled to share my experience in the hopes that this might be read by someone else faced with this difficult decision.

Thank you again for being there for us and Bryce."

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Ashleigh Rhoades"Dr. Rhoades was able to make this process, not about an abrupt end, but a peaceful transition through to the end of Bob's life. She is compassionate, clearly understands the process of grieving and combines that with veterinary medicine. We are so thankful we found Lap of Love and they sent us Dr. Rhoades.
