Lap of Love Veterinarian: Daniel Genatiempo, DVM"I highly recommend Dr. Dan from Lap of Love, and am eternally grateful for his compassionate and comforting presence as we said goodbye to sweet Sara. He exhibited great kindness, care, respect and consideration for Sara during the entire process, even after she had passed.
Forever etched in my memory is the delicate care he took to make sure her paws were safely tucked in as he situated her on the stretcher before carrying her away.

Thanks to Dr. Dan, Sara’s last moments were spent with family laying in the sunny spot of the living room that was her favorite. To be able to say goodbye in the comfort of home was priceless. I wish I had known about you last fall when we said goodbye to Sara’s sisters, Katya and Sandy.

The fur clippings and clay imprint of her paw that Dr. Dan gifted me with are keepsakes that I will always treasure. The follow-up email, touching on-line memorial and sympathy card that Dr. Dan sent afterwards were a great comfort.

Dr. Dan, thank you dearly for providing this important service. I am forever grateful to you for helping us say goodbye in such a loving and peaceful way. Many blessings to you."

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Daniel Genatiempo, DVM"Poor Dr. Dan. Being present during such a painful time for a family is unimaginable. He was kind, quiet and patient. He sent a follow-up note with link to a facebook memorial about our sweet boy that he posted that day. He noted that we might want to include a memorial of our own—that it could sometimes be cathartic. And it has been. Nothing can really take away the pain, but it's nice to share the story of our beloved Hank."Pam LinsleyIndianapolis, IndianaDecember 20, 2017Hank's Pet Memorial
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Daniel Genatiempo, DVM"Smokey is really the only pet I have ever had as an adult and I had never gone through the Euthanasia process. Since our kitty tended to be a nervous cat anyway, we would never have been able to take him outside of the house for this process. I found out about Dr. Dan and made an appt for the procedure. We were very nervous and so, so sad. Dr. Dan came in and was so kind and explained everything to us before he did anything. Smokey fell asleep with his head in my lap and it was so nice to be able to experience it in our home that way. We will be forever grateful to Dr. Dan helping us say goodbye in such a loving and peaceful way."Charissa AmbroseINDIANAPOLIS, IndianaNovember 19, 2017Smokey's Pet Memorial
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Daniel Genatiempo, DVM"When Dr. Dan came into our home he was immediately like a caring friend there to help us through a difficult and heartbreaking experience. He brings a gentle, calming, respectful and confident presence to the situation that lets you know you are in good hands. He was extremely sensitive and attentive to our needs and concerns and went beyond our expectations to care for our family. He is a special man."Teri EvansIndianapolis, IndianaNovember 18, 2017Louie Lewis's Pet Memorial
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Daniel Genatiempo, DVM"We were alerted to Lap or Love from out vet when we said Coconut is about to pass but we do not want it to happen in a hospital environment and wanted it to happen in our house that Coconut loved. Dr. Dan was amazing, patient, caring, sensitive and compassionate. I know I could not have done what he did (does) and, in looking back, we could not have envisioned Coconut passing any more peacefully.

Thank you."

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Daniel Genatiempo, DVM"Thank you Dr. Genatiempo. It was a very difficult decision to let Sammie go and you made it a very peaceful gentle goodbye. Your calming way and gentle touch made Sammie at ease and allowed me the proper goodbye she deserved.

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Daniel Genatiempo, DVM"Dr. Dan was very compassionate during a very distressing time. Dr. Dan was very empathetic and talked me through the entire process as it was happening. He also provided for some memories like collecting a paw print and fur clippings that I didn't expect. Because of Dr. Dan, Darcy's final moments was the peaceful, non-traumatic experience I had hoped for her."Scott ShowenFrankton, IndianaMarch 26, 2017Darcy's Pet Memorial
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Daniel Genatiempo, DVM"Dr. Dan and Lap of Love made our difficult decision so much easier. Oscar was a dog with a lot of anxiety on his good days. Going to a veterinary office for the last moments of his life would have been traumatic and difficult for all of us. Because of Dr. Dan and Lap of Love, we were able to spend Oscar's last moments on our own couch, in our own home, with no anxiety for Oscar at all. Dr. Dan could not have been more compassionate and genuine. I highly recommend Lap of Love and specifically Dr. Dan. Thank you so much for providing this important service."Susie KnollWestfield, IndianaJanuary 21, 2017

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Daniel Genatiempo, DVM"I want to thank Dr. Dan for helping our sweet Bonnie cross the bridge. It takes a special person to constantly be around tears and sadness of humans who are letting their pets go, but he did so with professionalism and compassion. It was much better to have this all take place in the privacy and comfort of our home versus the stress and emotion of having to take our girl to the vet to say good-bye. A special thanks to Layla who responded very quickly to our request, and was understanding and patient in confirming arrangements through my waterfall of tears."Jeff ByersGreenwood, IndianaOctober 28, 2016

She was in alot of pain the last two days and lap of love was able to come out the day we decided it was time.

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Daniel Genatiempo, DVM"Our experience with Dr. Dan & Lap Of Love couldn't have been better, under the circumstances. I was on my own that day & Dr Dan was very comforting & patient. Even though it was a tough time, having Reg pass in the comfort of his home was a huge relief for me. I felt confident that Reg felt safe & loved. It is a wonderful & caring service that you provide.

Thank You,
Dr. Dan & Lap of Love."

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Daniel Genatiempo, DVM"Dr. Dan was the exact right person for this difficult time in our Family. He never made us feel rushed. His presence put Dexter at ease. Dr. Dan answered my questions, even the ones I repeated over and over, with medical knowledge and personal experience. He took care to include the entire Family. He interacted with Sasha Bella and Giagee until they became contented with his presence. I felt Dexter slip away peacefully and held him for the longest time. Then only when the girls and I were ready, did Dr. Dan take him away."Cindy Loc HornungIndianapolis, IndianaJuly 28, 2016Dexter's Pet Memorial
