Lap of Love Veterinarian: Kiley Cameron"After weeks of unsuccessfully finding a medical solution to the health challenges our 14 year old Maltese, Willie was facing, we came to the crushing decision to euthanize him to end his pain. Everyone at Lap of Love was truly remarkable with their caring attitude, explaining the process in detail and working with our scheduling desires to not delay the process.
Dr. Kiley called that morning expressing such care about Willie it felt like she had known him and us for years. Throughout the entire procedure she was reassuring, kind and gentle giving us private time with Willie while explaining every step.
She was truly a wonderful blessing. Lap of Love is fortunate to have Dr. Kiley and we are so very thankful to have had her for this difficult moment in our life."

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Kristine Campanelli"I am most grateful for Dr. Kristine Campanelli, for her compassion and understanding of our pain brought on by the decision to put down our beloved pet, Audrey. Dr. Kristine's prompt and undivided attention to Audrey's needs and ours was such a relief and so appreciated. We knew within minutes that we made the right decision and were in great hands. And I mean, great hands. Dr. Kristine administered special care and empathy toward Audrey's end of life. Our grief in those moments was made bearable thanks to Dr. Kristine, she is a gift from heaven."jean vitaleBAY SHOREJanuary 21, 2021
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Miranda Shaw"Dr. Miranda (amazing coincidence same name as our sweet girl), was incredible. What was a stressful, sad, hard decision, she made it as easy as possible. She was caring, compassionate, and took her time to explain everything. She treated our girl with love and dignity. While it was so hard to say goodbye, Lap of Love and Dr. Miranda made it a caring experience for us. The whole staff was helpful."Katie O'ConnorChicagoJanuary 21, 2021Miranda's Pet Memorial
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Kimberly Carper"I cannot thank Josh and Dr. Kimmy at the Austin Lap of Love enough.
My beloved 12 and a half year old Chocolate lab Chewie was starting to truly suffer and it was time.
Making the phone call itself was the hardest part, and Joshua Figg was so lovely and compassionate on the phone.
Dr. Kimmy was able to come out that day, and treated Chewie and I with so much empathy and love.
When she administered the first sedation/painkiller shot it was the first time I've seen my buddy truly relax and be pain free in a week. He went painlessly and fast for a big guy. It was definitely the right time and he was ready.
I can't imagine doing this any other way, and I truly want to extend my sincere gratitude to Josh and Dr. Kimmy and the Lap of Love organization. Thank you, thank you, thank you."

She genuinely listened to us talk about Basha's life and her journey to being our good girl. Dr. Danielle's care provided us all with the relief that we were missing for too long. We are so grateful for this service and for Dr. Danielle that our girl got to go to sleep at her home, getting loved on by her family."Victoria WelshAlexandriaJanuary 21, 2021

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Ashley Ketter"I cannot thank you all enough for your treatment and handling of my child and us. The support, the memories, the options you gave us and how thoughtful and loving you have all been through the absolute worst event of my life. My grief is beyond description. My baby Dozer could not have had better care in his last moments than what Dr. Ashley gave him and us. My tears seem never ending, but because of you we had great comfort in having no added worries as to my baby's respect and care. I cannot explain the enormity of what that means to us I simply can't say enough about you or thank you enough."Ann DonnellyPinckneyJanuary 21, 2021
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Charlie Deutsch"Dr. Charlie was the ultimate professional but so kind and caring and understanding of what a sad decision had to be made. He made me and my sweet SonChai feel comfortable during his final minutes. If you must make the decision that is best for your pet, I highly recommend Lap of Love."Sandy GoldbandYORBA LINDAJanuary 21, 2021
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Christina Scudder"Dr Chris with Lap of Love was compassionate and professional during her visit with me and my 17 year old cat named Oreo. Trying to understand and making the decision to euthanize a pet for any reason is extremely difficult . Dr Chris listened to my thoughts and offered her opinion which provided the relief I needed. I had read other testimonial's about how much easier the vets with Lap of Love made such an emotional time and thankfully I had the same experience."Julie ZustWildwoodJanuary 21, 2021
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Jessica Gibson"Dr. Gibson made the hardest thing I've ever had to do so meaningful, tearful and reassuring. I know it was the right thing to do for Roxie and me."Janet MulloyHaymarketJanuary 21, 2021
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Beth Ruggles"Thank you so much for your kindness to us and to Daisy on Friday. I do want to say that every single interaction we had with Lap of Love on Friday from my initial intake to our consult with Dr Schultz to our experience with you at our home was nothing short of amazing. We were so stressed about how to get Daisy to our vet and what that experience would be like for her and for us, especially with Covid restrictions. I am so glad that we opted to use your services. I operate a nursing facility and deal with older adults at the end of their life on a daily basis. I must say you all are a master class in how to treat people (and pets) through times like this. Thank you for everything."MilfordJanuary 21, 2021

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Amanda Gordon"We can't thank Dr. Gordon enough for her kindness, for her gentle way with our dog, and for her calm when we were in such an unimaginable storm. She was so patient with us as we processed each part of what was happening with our boy. She was a rock for us, and we are forever thankful for her. I can't imagine a better person with whom to have gone through this devastating time. Thank you, Dr. Gordon, for giving our best boy the peace he deserved. What you do really matters."Alicia & Kevin SypalPortlandJanuary 21, 2021

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Desiree Thomas"Lap of Love is an outstanding organization. I learned about them from a previous neighbor, in another State, and this was my first experience. While euthanasia was a last, and dreaded option for my furry friend of 15 years it was such a relief for Parti Marty to pass away at home. Lap of Love’s response time, professionalism, and communication exceeded expectations. Dr Desiree Thomas was great, and very kind and considerate. I’m grateful to have been introduced to this organization."Robert CruseNaplesJanuary 21, 2021
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Becky Frank"I want to extend a personal thank you to Dr.Becky Frank. We had to make the difficult decision to put down our Tucker this week. He was absolutely the best dog we ever had but he was suffering. Lap of Love and Becky were wonderful helping us through this process. She was extremely sensitive to the situation and was very gentle with our big boy. His passing was peaceful and he is in a better place. We miss him terribly but are grateful that Lap of Love performs this service and he was in a comfortable surrounding and simply fell asleep. Thank you for getting us through this and offering a very needed service that is best for both our old boy and us. We will never forget you and how you helped us. Thank you
To the Lap of Love staff, also thank you for your kindness and gentle handling of a difficult decision. It was greatly appreciated."

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Carrie Dobey"Carrie was very kind and understanding in our time of pain. She was carrying and informed us of all that was to be done. Patrick passed peacefully and comfortably in my lap. We had Patrick’s remains returned to us the following day. She sent us a kind message the next day and offered us an ear to listen. We appreciate all that Carrie did for Patrick and us."Steve PrestonHigh PointJanuary 20, 2021Patrick's Pet Memorial
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Nikki Abdulla"It took me a few days to write this but I just received Ellie's ashes earlier today and I cannot put words to how much it meant to have Ellie pass at home with my oldest son, fur sister Lexi, and one of my cats, Gus, on 1/9/2021. Not only was Ellie comfortable on her couch, the other animals were able participate. Dr. Nikki could not have been more caring and considerate to our situation. She fully explained exactly what would happen and gave us plenty of time to grieve before she had to go. Especially in the pandemic we are facing, Lap of Love made this awful decision to send Ellie on much more bearable. I cannot recommend them enough. Dr. Nikki followed up about her ashes and sent sympathy in email and also a sympathy card in the mail. I rescued Ellie 12 years ago from a rescue and she was very scared from being abused. We were able to properly socialize her and make her quite literally part of my family. Ellie is a true testiment to who rescued who. She will never be forgotten and I cannot thank Dr. Nikki enough for making this difficult time less stressful."Deb McIntyreAnnvilleJanuary 20, 2021
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Emily Campesi"Dr. Emily was so kind and patient with me. She reassured me that this was best for Bella, considering her diagnosis of cardiac hemangiosarcoma. It was an awful time and she helped me through it. She was so gracious."Jodi HughesHermitageJanuary 20, 2021Miss Bella Louise Hughes's Pet Memorial
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Nick Labriola"Although it's hard to write these words as I'm still mourning my pet's loss, it warranted the highest review. If anyone is considering at-home euthanasia, this was the best gift I could give my precious Maizy. Lap of Love was the most perfect, professional, and peaceful service for my beloved animal from beginning to end. Dr. Nick was an answered prayer. Maizy was a senior rescue and terrified of the Vet clinics. We did not want the facility to traumatize our Maizy while she was weak & near the end of her life. When Maizy let us know it was 'her time,' we contacted Lap of Love and placed a profile. Dr.Nick was dispatched within an hour, and Maizy already said her 'goodbyes' and was fast asleep. Dr. Nick arrived at the door with a ZEN like energy, and we knew we made the right decision instantly. She wasn't alarmed; surrounded by her favorite things, blankets, pillow, warm fireplace, and her mommy & daddy's arms wrapped around her. Dr. Nick had such compassion, patience, and relaxed, unrushed nature. He knew what he was doing with great care and professionalism, and you can feel the Calling on his life. This is with certainty Dr. Nick's purpose, and he fulfilled it with our Maizy. There would be no other way to have her cross over Rainbow Bridge than with this Veterinarian and Lap of Love service. He took his time with everything from the sedation to our cries of goodbyes. He brought in a beautiful basket and carried her out with dignity, respect, and grace. Dr. Nick then stamped Maizy's pawprint and her fur shaved in a tiny container, assuring it was our pet a 'one-stop-shop' service, and they made all the private cremation arrangements. Maizy's remains came home in a week, followed by a personal email and sympathy card to our house from Dr. Nick. Heartfelt, touching, and with the most profound compassion. We are at total peace, and I would HIGHLY recommend in-home euthanasia and Dr. Nick, who helped escort her into heaven PEACEFULLY!"Melissa SantaellaLas VegasJanuary 20, 2021Maizy 's Pet Memorial
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Miranda Shaw"From the first email I sent inquiring on the process, to follow up calls with questions, to when it came time to schedule our at home appointment, Lap of Love treated us with care and compassion. It is so hard to loose a fur babe, we had to say goodbye to our sweet Miranda after 20+ amazing years. Her final moments were filled with calming love and care thanks to Dr. Miranda.

During what is a very difficult time, working with Lap of Love made it easier to say goodbye in a gentle caring manner."

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Sy Woon"Dr. Sy was so kind and compassionate. She was patient with Dixie and us, giving us plenty of time to say our good byes. It was a very difficult day and a hard farewell; and I am very glad Dr. Sy was there to help us through it. I would definitely recommend Lap of Love to anyone who is facing losing their loved one. The whole ordeal was bitter sweet and while time may have come to escort Dixie onto her next journey, her passing from us was gentle and filled with love.
Thank you Dr. Sy and to everyone who does this difficult job."

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Heather Manfredi"We were blessed to have our dog, Schatzi, for over 10 wonderful years. In 2020, Schatzi’s legs were giving out on her. She was still very happy but when she stopped going for her walks we knew she would not be here with us for too much longer.
In October 2020 my husband called our vet (whom we have the highest praise for). He inquired if when the time came to let Schatzi go would they be able to come to our home. They do not but they recommended Lap of Love. We are so grateful they did.
On the 25th of October, Schatzi could not get up off her bed. We called Lap of Love and Dr. Heather Manfredi came the next day.
She came in and took off her shoes and placed them near Schatzi and then sat down on the floor with us. She was so kind and pleasant and informative. Though she had never met Schatzi before it was as if she had. She explained things to us and made us feel confident that our decision was right to let Schatzi go. The whole process was so gentle, not rushed and respectful. Schatzi was able to leave this world in such a peaceful non traumatic way.
We will always be so grateful to Dr. Heather and Lap of Love.
