Lap of Love Veterinarian: Kendra L. Healy, DVM"I can't thank or recommend Dr. Kendra enough for her kindness, compassion and understanding during this heartbreaking time. She didn't even flinch when I explained that Max didn't do well with other people and that his happiest and most comfortable place was with me in a vehicle and that Is likely to put this down there. She was kind, understanding and just climbed right in with us. Kendra was so gentle and easy with him, so understanding with me. I couldn't have lived with myself if his last moments with me had been a traumatic trip to the vet and am beyond grateful to her for coming here and honoring him with a passing that was deserving of the life he gave me. Thank you Kendra for everything you did for us."Laura LeAnn BillWilliamstown, KentuckyOctober 20, 2017Max's Pet Memorial
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Tina Vaziri, DVM"Never in my wildest dreams could I have asked for a more blessed experience than the one we had with Lap of Love. From the call I made to schedule - hard call to make - to the final goodbye. I was fortunate to have Alex answer the phone and she was SO kind and understanding. I will never forget the love she showed me during that call. I requested Dr. Tina - the second angel I encountered from Lap of Love. What a beautiful spirit she is. The single hardest moment of my life to date, and I got Dr. Tina to help us through it. No rushed feeling. Sharing memories of our girl. Deciding it was time. It was all so quiet and dignified and gentle. Our angel was gone. She left with Dr. Tina in the most special way and was off to the next phase. We chose to have the service offered by Treasured Paws and Dr. Tina assured me that the dignity and honor would continue there for this special girl that had been part of our lives for 18 years! Our angel pup arrived home in a beautiful cedar box with her name engraved on top. I can't express in words the beauty of this team of people. The gifts of reassurance and calm - and the love from beginning to end that was given to us is simply overwhelming. Thank you Lap of Love for offering this special service and for ensuring that we have the right "angels" to help us, and our loved ones through it all. God Bless you all."Lora TowlerSpring, TexasOctober 20, 2017
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Katie Stender, DVM"I can't thank Dr. Katie enough for helping us through this. It is very hard getting used to the emptiness but Harley (our other dog) is doing fine and my husband, Steve, has commented a few times this was the way to say goodbye to our Baby Girl, Ciara. It really helped saying goodbye in the comfort of our own home with her surrounded by her loved ones. Dr. Katie has a great bedside manner and made everything as easy as possible on all of us."Donna MagelJacksonville, FloridaOctober 20, 2017
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Jennifer Walters, DVM"Dear Dr. Jenn,
We can't thank you and Donetta enough for all your comfort and patience. You both have a beautiful spirit. In our sad time we felt so much better and at peace having you come to the house to help Roby to the Rainbow bridge. She went so peacefully and getting to hold her as she passed was comforting. I can't stop telling people about Lap of Love and both of you. Thank you so much for helping us.
Much love and peace
Michelle and Bill Nelson
and Sookie and Gizmo"

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Jennifer Walters, DVM"Laps of Love and Dr. Jennifer Walters were incredibly kind, sensitive, and thoughtful in helping us with our favorite little buddy of almost 18 years. Fredo had lived a long, great doggie life but when his time came, we knew it. We were (and are) sad and distraught, and we weren't sure what to do. My wife had heard of Laps of Love so we called them, and without hesitation I can say I can't imagine a better Vet than Dr. Jennifer to help with a difficult situation like this. She was incredible and put us, our daughters, and even sweet old Fredo at ease. Absolutely she is who I would recommend to all our friends and families who come to a similar point with their furry family members."Eric WarrenCharlotte, North CarolinaOctober 20, 2017
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Sarah Clarke, DVM"We couldn't ask for a better and more loving Vet than Dr. Clarke. As you can imagine this is an extremely stressful time and Dr. Sarah made us feel at ease, right at home. She literally became one of the family and we cannot thank her enough.

We knew we wanted to send Spanky off at home, the Vet's office is never a good place and always a place of apprehension for both us as pet parents and our parents. Having the option to bring in Dr. Sarah, helped us immensely. It allowed not only my wife and I the ability to be here at home with our boy but several friends who came to see Spanky over the Rainbow as well.

You can't go wrong with Lap of Love."

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Amanda Page, DVM"Dr. Amanda was amazing. The care and support she showed my family and I before and during her peaceful goodbye to the rainbow bridge.

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Betsy King, DVM"We are so blessed to have had Dr. Betsy at our side during this difficult time. Her sweet nature, and caring love and support guided us through each moment. Tommy left us peacefully and we all felt his relief. The entire experience was truly beautiful, and James and I were left feeling at peace that our faithful friend was at last set free. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts, Dr. Betsy."Maggie MurphyRaleigh, North CarolinaOctober 19, 2017Tommy Murphy's Pet Memorial
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Maggie Doley, DVM"Dr. Maggie was very compassionate, kind, and professional during her time with us and our angel Flavor. She explained the process to us and answered our questions. I felt very comfortable with Dr. Maggie and felt that she truly cared for our boy and had his best interest at heart even though she had just met him. Dr. Maggie came to us during a very difficult time and we are very grateful for her and others like her at Lap of Love who do this very important work. Thank you."Dalina and Joshua CortesTampa, FloridaOctober 19, 2017Flavor Flav's Pet Memorial
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Katie Stender, DVM"Dr. Katie helped us through the hardest day of my life that I have just now been able to write about. Sebastian was diagnosed with an aggressive bone cancer just before his 10th birthday in June. Sebastian was part of our family, not “just a dog”. With no treatment options, we knew it would be selfish to make him suffer and we had to make the heart breaking decision to let him go. We were referred to Dr. Katie and I’m so thankful we were. As soon as she walked into our home she felt like a long time friend- never a stranger. She loved our baby and wanted him at peace as much as we did. Sebastian was comfortable at home surrounded by love when he “got his wings”. Dr. Katie was there to comfort him, and us, that day. She cares enough to check-in and see how we are doing. I can’t say enough what a wonderful heart she has and I don’t know how to thank her for all she did for me."Tiffany RenoPonte Vedra Bch, FloridaOctober 19, 2017
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Brad Bates, VMD"Thank you for your kindness and support during one of our darkest days. We could not have asked for anyone more considerate, informative and professional. Thank you for helping us make an informed and unselfish decision. LB"Havertown, PennsylvaniaOctober 19, 2017
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Tara Mudry, DVM"I'm so grateful that Dr Tara was available on the day I had to say farewell to my best friend. She was an absolute angel that made the very sad day bearable for both of us to say goodbye. My entire experience from making the first phone call to getting the remains back was seamless and took away the need for me to worry about anything other than my loss. I'd 100% recommend using Lap of Love to anyone who loves their pets and wants the best farewell possible."Vanessa NormandinKirkland, WashingtonOctober 18, 2017
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Kim Bruce, DVM, CVA"Dr. Kim Bruce was amazing! She was so kind, compassionate and caring during one of the hardest moments of my life. This was the first time I did this at home, as my other cat Jackson was so bonded with Xander in the short time they were together. I thought it best he witnessed this event to help him grieve as well. She made the process bearable, and was so accepting of my tears and helped to ease the pain. She was born to do this, and helped our furry family in time of need, and is greatly appreciated. Thank you Dr. Kim!"Lisa TuetkenDenver, ColoradoOctober 18, 2017Xander's Pet Memorial
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Karen Gadberry, DVM"My husband and I are so grateful to Dr. Karen. She couldn't have been more perfect at such a difficult time. She is kind and compassionate; her caring nature is evident the minute she walks in the door. Lap of Love allowed our dog to have the huge benefit of not having to have her last car ride be to the vet (her absolutely least favorite place to be); Dr. Karen allowed it to be in her favorite place to be (at home), at total peace, laying next to my husband and me. I can't say enough wonderful things about this organization. The followups, attention to detail and keen awareness of the sensitivity of losing your best friend are second to none. Thank you Lap of Love and Dr. Karen!"Anne CoburnLibertyville, IllinoisOctober 18, 2017
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Melanie Santspree, DVM"Dr. Melanie, by far is the best Veterinarian I have ever met. She had so much love, compassion and caring. She came to my house on October 7, 2017 to help my Shelby cross over the Rainbow Bridge. She showed up and immediately upon coming into my home, hugged me and my family and friends who had gathered around to say their final goodbye's to Shelby. She assured me that Shelby was ready to cross over the Rainbow Bridge, as I had doubts. She got down in the floor and loved on Shelby for a long time before and after administering the first shot to relax her. Dr. Mel spent over an Hour and Half at my home while I cried and grieved over Shelby reassuring me and comforting me during my loss. And she allowed ample time for me to spend with her during all this time she was here. She gave me a lock of her hair that she carefully cut for me and also a paw print of Shelby. She has sent Texts, a sympathy card and many condolences to me and my family since our loss of our precious Shelby. I could not have asked for a better Vet to come help our Shelby cross over the Rainbow Bridge."Linda IngallsRotterdam, NYOctober 18, 2017Shelby's Pet Memorial
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Nancy Rodriguez, DVM"I was very skeptical about the Lap of Love home service since I had never heard of this. However, it was much better for us and most importantly for MaxBoy. Considering the weak condition Max was in, not having to unnecessaraly introduce, anxiety and discomfort by moving him to another location was a blessing. Dr. Nancy was very kind to Max, and I can now say encouraging us to remember our good times with Max during the procedure was extremely helpful for CoCo and I both. Dr. Nancy, thank you again for your assistance."John & CoCo BellavichGrovetown, GeorgiaOctober 18, 2017Maxboy's Pet Memorial
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Brad Bates, VMD"Dr. Brad was able to come for an urgent appointment to let our girl go. He was completely professional, compassionate, and handled everything for us so we could spend our last moments talking to her and petting her instead of worrying.
We felt safe and cared for, and Killian's ashes were returned to us promptly the following week. We couldn't be happier to recommend this to anyone. Such caring veterinarians, you will feel surrounded in love during the darkest moments."

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Anne Mitchell, VMD"I can't express enough my appreciation and love for Dr. Anne. As the emotions calm after a few days, I realize that this is such a special service offered to families and their pets. The compassion and empathy I shared with her was incredible, and joyous. I cannot thank you enough, Dr. Anne. Thank you doesn't seem enough even."Patti TalbottHavertown, PennsylvaniaOctober 17, 2017Prince's Pet Memorial
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Rene Butler, DVM"I can not say enough about the kindness and caring of this organization. Dr. Rene is our angel/hero who came to our rescue on October 13, 2017. Our 14-year-old Havanese, Mojito, could no longer fight his congestive heart failure. It was his time. Unfortunatley we live in Sonoma and the city was shut down because of fires. The Dr we had arranged to help with Mo was evacuated. I found Lap of Love in a google search. I was so relieved they answered the phone after getting no answer from every vet I reached out to. Dr. Sharon, who compassionately took information she needed. Contact Dr. Rene, who was also impacted by the fire but was able to make it to our home. The anxiety of watching our baby in pain was accompanied by the anxiety of a nearby fire and was coupled with waiting for someone we had never met who was coming to our home to take care of him. Dr Rene was beyond amazing. She hugged me the minute she got out of the car. Put a gentle arm around me. Explained what would happen in a calm and nurturing voice. She relieved our baby's pain so we could have a moment with him and when we were ready helped send him to a place of no pain, no pills and only his favorite things. I am forever grateful to her and her beautiful soul."Laura CurranSonoma, CaliforniaOctober 17, 2017
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Julie Hasenfratz, DVM"When our dog's kidneys started to fail, it quickly became apparent that we didn't have much time to determine what to do, as he was fading fast. We were happy with our vets but didn't want to have to take him down there and have him put to sleep in a clinical situation, so we stumbled onto Lap of Love and Dr. Julie. She was so compassionate and sensitive and tactful that she made an unbearable decision easier to deal with. We still get all teared up, but think that Harley's last minutes were peaceful and pain-free. These folks have our unqualified recommendation."Dennis & Charla SmythLakewood, ColoradoOctober 17, 2017
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Kimberly Moen, DVM"I want to thank her so much for her kindness and empathy.
She performed a difficult task with grace and charm.
She was there when Annie and I needed her.
Thank you Doctor Kimberly Moen."

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Sue Mowatt, DVM"Thank you for your compassion during this very difficult time. From the time I made the call even now to follow up you've constantly show me you care. Thank you for easing my mind and my heart that my baby is in good hands. The compassion and sympathy that you've shown me and my family is unforgettable ."Yolanda GuevarraElk Grove, CaliforniaOctober 17, 2017Neiman marcus's Pet Memorial
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Stacy Michele Blake, DVM"My Sweet Boy forever in my heart
Dr. Stacy Michele Blake was amazing, kind and patient. It was a wonderful experience to not have to take Teddy to the vet and cause him all kinds of anxiety prior to his passing. I was able to lay a blanket down outside under a beautiful oak tree with the sun shining and the wind blowing and Teddy in my arms the entire time at my own home. Teddy was at a stage five out of a six with a heart murmur. Dr. Blake was so sweet to Teddy and I.

Thank you to Dr. Blake and Sheryl who was also amazing over the phone at in tial contact

I would recommend "Lap of Love" to all....!"
