Lap of Love Veterinarian: Stacy Michele Blake, DVM"In early February 2018, my family made the difficult decision to euthanize our 16 year old pug. The entire process from start to finish was handled exceptionally well. From our coordinator on the Lap of Love support side to the veterinarian, Dr. Stacy, who visited our home, I could not have been more well taken care of throughout the process. Dr. Stacy in particular was the perfect match for our home and pup and what we needed to get through this. Having my last moments, holding my pet at home, was worth every dollar spent. Thank you sincerely from our entire family."Tracey ChorocoOrlando, FloridaFebruary 20, 2018
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Daniel Genatiempo, DVM"Dr. Dan was coming for a consultation but Annie took a turn for the worst and our meeting turned into a final goodbye. I can not imagine a more gentle, soft spoken, comforting and caring goodbye he granted us. We have gone through this before but it is never easy, always heartbreaking. We appreciated the time he gave us with her before and after. He was compassionate and for that, we were so grateful. Annie's passing was quiet and peaceful. We thank Dr. Dan for his care of our girl. God Bless"Susan WeaverNoblesville, IndianaFebruary 19, 2018Annie's Pet Memorial
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Anne Mitchell, VMD"I just want to thank everyone at Lap of Love, they were so so supportive and caring from the time I called until my beloved Willy’s ashes were delivered. Dr. Anne was so caring and allowed us to have our time with our boy, never rushed, just so sympathetic she was. I highly recommend Lap of Love to help bring your precious fur baby over the rainbow 🌈 bridge! Thank you so much, many blessings to you all for what you do!"Lisa AustinSwedesboro, New JerseyFebruary 19, 2018

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Heather Manfredi, DVM"My sweet, lovable furry baby was the perfect cat...she followed me around everywhere I went and made my life so enjoyable. She and I traveled all over the country together eventually settling back to Long Island. When she was recently diagnosed with mouth cancer I was in shock and not able to except the news. At only 11 years old I had always pictured her to grow old and pass of natural causes. I tried to do everything to save her as I was watching the life she loved slowly disappear. As fast as the decline happened I realized there was no other choice but to let her sleep forever. A co worker of mine mentioned Lap of Love and I called them immediately. The receptionist on the other end of the line was so sweet and caring and I was surprised she could understand what I was saying on the phone. After giving me all the information and giving me time to think about it for a little while I called her back and scheduled the service for the next day. Dr. Heather could not have been more loving and kind. She came to my house and explained everything. She let me have a lot of time with Dutchess on my lap before I was ready to let her do her work. Dutchess went to sleep on my lap the same way she did for countless times before. Dr. Heather was so sweet and comforting and spent some more time with my husband and I before leaving. I could not imagine putting her to sleep at the veterinarian it was so comfortable for everyone to do it in our home. As hard as the decision is, it’s something all loving pet owners have to face. I cannot say enough great things about Lap of Love. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for helping us through this process. My heart is still shattered but I know I made the right decision using your services."Lisa BustamanteSayville, NYFebruary 19, 2018
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Shannon Skevakis, DVM"Thank you Dr. Shannon for your tenderness, and caring in examining Faith, and letting us know we were doing the right thing in letting her go. Your assurances made a huge difference in the guilt I felt about the procedure. I know we gave her dignity in her final moments with us. She is deeply missed everyday by us all. She was a cutie with a huge heart full of love."Liz ChaseKingston, New JerseyFebruary 19, 2018Faith's Pet Memorial

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Sunday Cozzi, DVM"Wow! What an amazing gift God has given Dr. Sunday Cozzie . It truly takes a special person for this job and she is perfect for it. Dr. Cozzie was Mikey’s Angel sent to lead him to his next adventure. Not knowing how I was load my Mikey in the truck and take him to the 1 place that he disliked the most? Blake began to look and then found Lap of Love. I am truly grateful and thankful for the experience Mikey had on his last day. Dr. Cozzie was very knowledgeable, kind, caring and compassionate. She explained the process and executed it with much ease. She took her time. Not one time did we feel rushed with the process. She let us grieve and cry and tell wonderful stories as his last hour came to an end. We had Mikey cremated by himself and Dr. Cozzie returned Mikey 2 days later. I thought that was awesome . What peaceful ending to my Mikey’s life here on earth. So again I thank you Dr. Cozzie for everything. You are a truly a blessing."Brittney FulmerAugusta, GeorgiaFebruary 19, 2018

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Stacy Michele Blake, DVM"You’re never truly prepared for the day to come to say “see you later” to your love. This was a struggle and something I wanted to pretend wasn’t happening for as long as possible. Dr. Blake was sweet, compassionate and the silver lining to the day. The process was loving and she took her time in explaining, allowing me to tell stories of my Sadie Lynn and spend her last moments with her. It takes a special person who guides you and your pet towards the peaceful end. Words will never express what Dr. Blake did for me that day and the coming days where she followed up with emails and cards. Thank you. - Sadie’s mom"Brandie RiveraOrlando, FloridaFebruary 19, 2018
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Heather Manfredi, DVM"Biscuit was our 7 year old Golden Retriever, who passed from cancer. We wanted to personally thank Dr Heather for making Biscuit’s passing a beautiful experience. Biscuit passed in and out of our lives in too short of a time span, and takes with her all of our family memories and energies, which I know gave her comfort while she was here, and will give her comfort wherever her essence is now.

We know what Dr Heather does, hospice, is challenging, but for someone well-suited and meant for the “job” it is a natural way of being. Thank you, Dr Heather, for your genuine caring and kindness. I could sense your true and genuine love for animals and their comfort, and it made all the difference. The way you quietly moved and took care of things in the room during the experience I will always remember, and now your beautiful energy is part of our family memories. It was “just right” for Biscuit and our family.

We also wanted to thank your staff who answered the phone, who were all so very kind and attentive in meeting our needs. They are your first contact, and they projected warmth and caring on behalf of your company.

We will definitely recommend your service, your gift, to others who may find the need. A heartfelt thank you.

The Trusnovec Family,
Steve, Donna, Nick, Jenna, Trevor, and Biscuit in spirit always"

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Cary Mackey, DVM"It has taken me five months to get to the point where I can officially “close the file” on the loss of my beloved cat, Ahlee. Like peeling the layers of an onion, there have been tear-filled days in which I finally put away his food dishes and toys, packed up his food and treats to give away, and hung a beautiful portrait a friend painted of him above his little cremation box. I know I will love a pet again but never in the same way that I adored my furry side kick for twelve wonderful years. Throughout all that grief, though, I have the constant comfort of knowing that his last moments with me were peaceful, loving, and kind. Such a devastating day was made SO much easier by the incredible sweetness of Dr. Cary. I don’t believe I could have survived if not for the way she handled Ahlee…and me. I can honestly say that I don’t know when I’ve ever been treated so kindly and with such empathy. I’d like to also mention the rest of the staff at Lap of Love—and I’m sorry, I seem to have momentarily misplaced notes with their names—from the first phone call to make arrangements to the follow up phone calls arranging pick up, everyone was so amazingly sweet. It was, again, so comforting to go through all this with such wonderful people. God bless you for what you do. SO much love, Jenna Kittrell"Jennifer KittrellRoswell, GeorgiaFebruary 18, 2018
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Nellie Wilbers, DVM"I am so thankful for Dr. Nellie. I feared that I couldn't make it through this time because of the overwhelming sadness, but Dr. Nellie was so kind, gentle, caring and compassionate that the end of my best friend's life felt natural and full of love."Becky MilesDublin, OhioFebruary 18, 2018
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Erin Deveau, DVM"Cancer took our Zeus's quality of life so fast that it was a god'send to have Lap of Love help us in such a difficult time .
Knowing the time had arrived to help Zeus transition from life to death was one of the most painful decisions in my life.
From the very inception of reaching out to Lap of Love, they were professional and compassionate to the situation.

Although our Zeus could not stand, he managed to do so and greet Dr.Erin Deveau as she came into our home. He had a nose for good people.
Dr.Deveau showed compassion and understanding with remarkable professionalism as she checked on Zeus's condition.
Her demeanor was above reproach as she confirmed assesment that it was time to let our boy go. She explained the process
in detail so that we could understand how the transition would take place.

The entire process gave overwhelming peace and comfort not only to our beloved pet, but to my family as we watched him fade so peacefully.

Thank you for EVERYTHING Dr. Deveau. You helped make a painful and difficult time more comforting to my family.
Your compassion should be emulated by all."

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Jessica Webster-Boden DVM"We cannot say enough about the kind, compassionate, considerate, and professional care we received from Lap of Love from the very first difficult phone call that was placed. Dr. Jessica was amazing and had the most authentic compassion towards us and Riley. She was patient, gentle, and highly respectful to Riley, as well as her humans. She made an unbearable situation go as smoothly and peacefully has possible. As difficult as this was, in hindsight, I would not have changed one part of the final moments of our baby's life."Michelle RamirezTrophy Club, TexasFebruary 17, 2018Riley's Pet Memorial

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Annie Dion-Byrd, DVM"Dr. Annie was fantastic. She walked me through each step of the process. She didn't push me to make a decision, but gave her honest professional opinion. It's a hard decision to make and she understands that. I really appreciated the time she took to let me say my goodbyes without interference. He was able to die peacefully in his own bed."Lisa RosenbergOrlando, FloridaFebruary 17, 2018Pablo Sanchez's Pet Memorial
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Tara Mudry, DVM"Dr. Tara was awesome. Had really great bed side manners, said the right things, and performed in the utmost timely manner. It was and always is the best experience to have your friend be in their own natural state of being, and to be able to just fall asleep with your family by your side, is the best thing that we can provide for our loved ones, of any species, and it's great Lap Of Love provides us with that. Thank you Dr Tara."George RodenSeattle, WashingtonFebruary 17, 2018Grim's Pet Memorial
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Samantha Souther, DVM"Our Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, "Why Me." was my joy, my best friend, and my constant traveling companion for 16 years until old age finally caught up with him and the time came that we had to let him go. I still weep every time I think of him, which is almost all the time, and the only thing that makes his loss in any way bearable is knowing how quietly and gently he was eased from this world. Dr. Samantha was simply wonderful with him (and with my husband and myself), so kind and compassionate--I don't know how we would have gotten through this dreaded ordeal without her sweet and quiet manner. While it must be hard dealing every day with the death of someone's beloved pet, I cannot think of any service a veterinarian can perform that is more humane and caring than to enable a pet to die with dignity in the comfort of their own home. If only all of us could go so gently from this world. Thank you, Dr. Samantha and Lap of Love!"West Chester, PennsylvaniaFebruary 17, 2018
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Brad Bates, VMD"We are grateful for Dr. Brad's efforts to help ease Dora's pain. It was a difficult but necessary decision and she will be missed. The home procedure was a great opportunity to have her surrounded by family and friends in the home that she loved. Dr. Brad's calm and caring presence helped ease Dora's pain (and our anxiety). We are grateful for his efforts and will recommend him to our family and friends."John GarrityCollingswood, New JerseyFebruary 17, 2018
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Jennifer Walters, DVM"We were very heart broke to have to let our family member Testa go 10 days ago....Testa had brought and shared 15 years of moments that will always be with us in our hearts. She helped us to have fun each day and laugh together.

Through this incredibly difficult experience we had Dr Jenn.... she shared Testa's last moments with us and helped our family deal with this loss with love, dignity, peace, and a sense of comfort.

We can not thank her enough."
