Lap of Love Veterinarian: Nick Labriola"From the first message to the last phone call Lap of Love made this journey very comfortable for both my Josee and my family. They responded to my information request and when I knew the day was here they responded to my email without hesitation. After searching their site and listening to the videos I had no doubt my decision was the right one for Josee. You see Josee came to me during my season of grief after losing my husband to suicide. I needed her. When she was diagnosed with cushing's in 2017 I had no idea her final days were coming. Next she got diabetes then blindness. I promised her I would not let her be a science project. Last week we found out her kidneys were being effected and her desire to eat was gone. I was there for here this time. I made her arrangements and Lap of Love made it peaceful and respectful. My son in law brought her a cheeseburger and I played music for her as she smelled my t-shirt and took in all the love of family surrounding her in my bedroom. Dr. Nick explained everything prior so there were no misunderstandings. He was very compassionate and professional. I lifted Josee up to Jesus that day and it was the most beautiful experience. Thank you for your professional compassion."LATRICIA MORGANLAS VEGASOctober 29, 2020

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Kim Slade"We can't thank Lap of Love and Dr. Kim Slade enough. We first met in March of 2020 when our dog, Daisy, a 16 year old hound, was having trouble with eating and we thought we would have to put her down. Dr. Slade came to our home and evaluated Daisy and made some recommendations for symptom control. Within a few days, Daisy had new life and energy and we were able to have 7 good months with her before it was her time to go. During that time, she enjoyed long walks, the beach, and being with the family. In October, Daisy had an acute change in her status. We talked through the process with Dr. Kim, who had been regularly checking in on us over the past few months, and we mutually agreed that it was time to put Daisy down. Dr. Kim came to our home and was there for Daisy and for us. Her compassion, understanding, tone, and warmth were so very much appreciated. Our dog passed away peacefully while lying in her favorite bed, under her favorite blanket, in the warmth of the sun by a window she loved to lay in front of with us by her side. Thank you Dr. Slade, our family is so thankful for you and will be forever grateful for you!"Colin O'ReillyMorris PlainsOctober 29, 2020
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Laura Poland"Dr. Laura is one of the kindest people I have ever met. She has such compassion and love for our pets going over the rainbow bridge. I could not have asked for a more peaceful passing for our sweet Morris. Her basket with a comfy blanket that we placed Morris in for her to take him in was beautiful. It looked just like our baby was sleeping."Katy McManusMidlothianOctober 29, 2020Morris's Pet Memorial
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Heather Manfredi"In August 2020, our beloved Havanese, Bandit, was diagnosed with Lymphoma. This came as a shock to my family as he was only 8 years old and had enjoyed excellent health until that point. Over the next 2 months, we watched as our loving, happy puppy's (we referred to him as "always a puppy" due to his bouncy puppy-like, active personality) health rapidly deteriorated. We didn't want him to suffer and friends and family told us "you will know when it is time". That time arrived on October 11. I had done my research and Lap of Love had come recommended by many local moms. My hand shaking, I made the dreaded phone call and was greeted by the sweetest woman on the other end. She was so patient and kind as I cried my way through the call. She was comforting and understanding. Payment was made in advance, so you don't have to be bothered with the details while you are grieving the loss of your pet. I made an appointment to have Dr. Heather come to euthanize Bandit the next evening.

Dr. Heather arrived on time and followed COVID procedures including social distancing and wearing a mask. She was very reassuring and explained exactly what the process was and answered any questions we had. She was caring and patient with us as we were not quite finished saying our goodbyes. Although euthanizing my dog was one of the hardest things we have ever had to do, I am so thankful for Lap of Love and Dr. Heather. We were able to say goodbye to Bandit in the comfort of his home. We played music and sat in his favorite spot with his favorite toys all around. He was not fearful or anxious and he died peacefully in my arms, surrounded by his loving family as opposed to the anxiety and sterile environment he would have faced at the veterinarian's office. Although this is a choice no pet owner ever wants to face, Lap of Love makes the worst situation the best it can possibly be. The paw prints and lock of hair were also very much appreciated. I cannot recommend Dr. Heather enough!"

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Kristen Miller"Our dog was a very special member of our family. From our first call to Lap of Love we were greeted with such kindness and understanding. Oreo’s health had deteriorated over the last year. This past weekend he stopped eating and drinking. It was so sad to see him that way. He has been an amazing dog and a true member of our family. We are truly lost without him. Dr. Kristen was so compassionate and understanding. She explained every step to us. Oreo knew he was surrounded with Love in his final moments. It was a very peaceful experience."Florence ClarkeMassapequaOctober 29, 2020Oreo's Pet Memorial

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Kimberly Moen"I was recommended Lap Of Love through the animal hospital I took Garth to where I learned he had intestinal cancer. Although chemo was an option, Garth was already weak and I could tell he was suffering. After staying up all night trying to gather the courage to submit the form online I finally did it. From the phone call to walk me through the procedure to the end, LOF was very caring. Our Vet Kim was compassionate and respectful from the start to the end. I can’t thank you enough for offering this service. To allow Garth to take his last breath in my arms in the comfort of our home was a gift not only for me but for Garth who was able to leave this earth stress free. I don’t know how you guys do it but I’m forever grateful and have a deep amount of respect for Lap of Love and for Kim. Thank you."Jennifer BullerwellBoynton BeachOctober 28, 2020Garth's Pet Memorial
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Jennie Brindler"I had to make the very hard decision to put down my companion of 13.5 years, Audrey Hepburn, in May 2020. She was 14.5 years old and the best cat I could have dreamed of! Dr. Jennie walked in the door and from the first second she was comforting, kind, and let me take my time to say goodbye to my girl. It was a huge comfort to have such an amazing person there during this difficult time. She even let me give Audrey a couple of her favorite toys and blanket. Thank you!!!"Jamie WIlmsDenverOctober 28, 2020
