Lap of Love Veterinarian: Carly Billeaudeau, DVM"Dr. Carly is truly an angel on earth. The decision to euthanize our sweet kitty, Oreo, was a very difficult one, to say the least. Although I knew deep in my heat that it was for the best, I agonized about it each and every day prior to our visit from the doctor. My husband and I cannot say enough about Dr. Carly; a beautiful lady with a heart to match, we found her to be both professional and personal. She patiently sat with us and listened to our story, then took our precious Oreo on his journey across the Forever Bridge. We will have pets for as long as we're able, and I will never think twice about calling Dr. Carly when the time arises again. Although none of us want to face this heartbreaking experience, we know it's inevitable. I thank God for Dr. Carly and the fact that Oreo crossed over without even a wince of pain. God Bless you and all others that care so much for our furbabies, Dr. Carly!"Anne BrassettBaton Rouge, LouisianaJanuary 13, 2018
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Carly Billeaudeau, DVM"Waiting from 11 am to 3 yesterday for Dr. Carly was like waiting for a grim reaper. My husband said "She's here", the words i dreaded. But there at my door was a sweet face young woman with a soft voice, she carried a little doctors bag like in earlier times. She quiety sat by my sleeping Nicholous. She spoke in quiet tones, she knew our anglish. With her help, he died on his warm sleeping pad with my husband petting him. If anything other than this would have happened, I would never forgive myself for keeping him alive until something bad happened."carole O'NeilBATON ROUGE, LouisianaNovember 19, 2017Nicholous's Pet Memorial

lady. When she arrived she talked with us she didn't rush us to start
anything. she let me take my time and just hold my baby as
long as i need. she was very kind and made Lita's passing a
very painless and peacefully time for Lita. she was very understanding
and concerned about our feelings as well. Dr. Carly made this very painfull
and extremy hard time for us a lot easier."

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Carly Billeaudeau, DVM"It will be a year in just a few days that our sweet Oliver left us and only now am I able to comment. Devastation doesn't even tell the whole story about the loss of this precious fur baby. Dr. Carly Billeaudeau was and is an angel who guided us down that sad road of saying good bye to Oliver. It was time for us to let him go and I simply could not imagine having to put him in the car to drive him to his final destination. Dr. Billeaudeau is caring, sympathetic, and professional. My husband and I are still appreciative in the manner that she treated Oliver and us in our own home. We are grateful for Lap of Love and there are not enough words to express our gratitude to Dr. Billeaudeau for her kindness during a very sad time."Dinah Schuster-StevensonBaton Rouge, LouisianaOctober 6, 2017
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Carly Billeaudeau, DVM"Our vet was amazing. She was calm around all 4 of my dogs and was completely respectful of our time and our feelings. She was very professional and it was the best experience in such a sad time."Lydia PerezBaton Rouge, LouisianaAugust 23, 2017Harper's Pet Memorial
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Carly Billeaudeau, DVM"Unfortunately I've had to use Dr. Carly twice in the last year. She is amazing. Extremely caring and very understanding. My 13 year old lab mix, Cletus, had to be put to sleep last year and in July of this year, 2017, my dachshund mix that I've had for over 18 years had to cross the rainbow bridge as well. I would recommend the Lap of Love service and Dr. Carly to anyone in need of these services. I cannot say enough good things about her. She is very compassionate about her job and it shows. She really makes you feel at ease and never rushes the difficult process. Thank you so much for your services."Amy HebertZachary, LouisianaAugust 4, 2017
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Carly Billeaudeau, DVM"Dr. Carly was amazing! Calling her was the hardest thing I've ever had to do. She explained everything in detail to me before the procedure and answered any questions I had. She let me have as much time as I needed with Deuce. She was very gentle and understanding, and explained what she was going to do and what to expect during the procedure. I hope to never have to make that call again, but should I have to, I'll definitely call her! Thank you for helping my Deuce transition peacefully."Danielle Lamotte-PrimusAddis, LouisianaJuly 5, 2017Deuce's Pet Memorial
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Carly Billeaudeau, DVM"We would like to thank Dr. Carly for her gentleness and compassion with Jake, and with all of us during this difficult time. We had never heard of Lap of Love until Jake took a turn for the worse. Dr. Carly was a calm and comforting presence for all of us and there aren' t enough words to express our sincere gratitude for her and what she does. Thank you so much."Kevin, Angie, Meghan, Hannah, Chloe and Bear LukerBaton Rouge, LouisianaJune 23, 2017Jake's Pet Memorial
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Carly Billeaudeau, DVM"Having Dr. Carly come and help Ricola end his life peacefully at home was the best thing we could have done for him. We were so lucky that she was able to quickly reply to my email on a Sunday evening and that she could offer us an appointment the next day. She was so gentle with him and showed such warmth and compassion to all of us. Thanks to Dr. Carly our sweet Ricola was spared the stress of being transported out of his room and being euthanized in his vet's clinic. Her kindness and sympathy is greatly appreciated by Mom and me. Knowing there are veterinarians who provide such a necessary service to pets in need of hospice care or more is a great comfort!"Trellee BermudezBaton Rouge, LouisianaMay 2, 2017Ricola's Pet Memorial
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Carly Billeaudeau, DVM"We knew our cat Inky was not going to make it long after we took him home from the vet. We thought we would have longer with him, but when his chest cavity began refilling with fluid from the lymphoma, we knew he would soon be in pain. We put in a request overnight and Carly started texting us at 5:50 in the morning on Mardi Gras Day. She came out for 7 before all her other appointments.

The comfort, care and concern she gave us was second to none. She helped us through what has been the hardest transition Sherry and I have ever been through. Inky died in Sherry's arms the way he loved to be cradled. He passed so peacefully. He was a black cat with a white spot on his chest and Carly was so accommodating to cut both the black and white hair for his lock of love.

Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

(the picture of him shows how laid back he is, basking in the warm sun--I hope that's how his spirit feels forever)."

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Carly Billeaudeau, DVM"I called Dr.Carly with Lap of Love, and she made the trip out on a Sunday evening. She arrived and explained everything to me. She examined him and agreed that it was the best for him. The process was tough for me, but yet I felt at ease. I got to say goodbye to my boy while he was no longer in pain. I would like to personally thank Dr. Carly and the Lap of Love for making it such a good experience for such a sad day for me."Scotty CanezaroPort Allen, LouisianaFebruary 27, 2017Shadow's Pet Memorial
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Carly Billeaudeau, DVM"I'm so grateful that Dr. Carly was able to come to my home when it was time to let me 18 year old cat Xavier go. She spoke to me on the phone to help me talk through my decision, and suggested we make an appointment a few days later. Dr. Carly is one of my cats' regular vets, so she was familiar with his history and knew how much I loved him. She also knew that he had been sick for awhile and that it was likely his time.

This experience gave me a lot of peace over the loss of my beloved boy. Dr. Carly was caring and gentle to Xavier, and she also took really good care of me."

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Carly Billeaudeau, DVM"Our heartfelt thanks to Dr Carly for being there for me and my girls to help our Splah cross over at the end of our battle with DM. I don't know how you do what you do everyday but we're so grateful to you. It was so much more peaceful and graceful having you come to our home. A million thanks from Holly, Tang, Rogue and our Angel Splash."Holly WiseFranklinton, LouisianaNovember 4, 2016Splash's Pet Memorial
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Carly Billeaudeau, DVM"I am so thankful Dr. Carly devotes her skills to this service. She was patient and supportive.

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Carly Billeaudeau, DVM"Dr. Carly was so very compassionate. She helped us have some very much quality time with Luke while she helped him to relax. I have and will recommend Lap of Love to all my friends and family. Dr Carly even reached out to us the next day to see how we were doing and to let us know she is there for us if we needed. I did not know that this was available. Luke was to large and too weak for us to take him to the vet office. So nice to be able to say our goodbyes at home with just us there with him. Thank you so much Dr. Carly."Nancy and Mark BrownBaton Rouge, LouisianaSeptember 11, 2016Luke's Pet Memorial
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Carly Billeaudeau, DVM"We will be forever grateful to Dr. Carly for giving our sweet angel Max the comfort, dignity and peace that he deserved in his final moments with us. I never knew about this type of service and am so thankful that a friend referred me to her. Max was always scared to go to the vet, so the thought of him having his final moments there was just too much for me to handle. For close to 12 years he was my constant companion and best friend. Thanks to Dr. Carly, my sweetpea was able to pass peacefully in his own home, sitting on our laps, as we gently pet him and told him how much we loved him. I thank God for the blessing of Dr. Carly. It takes a special kind of person to do this kind of work. She is kind, patient, and has a sincere love for animals that was evident. Thank you for the compassion you showed to us, and to our sweet Max."Lisa RivetRosedale, LouisianaSeptember 1, 2016
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Carly Billeaudeau, DVM"This was the best experience possible during this sad time in our family. Dr. Carly was so wonderful with my Selah as she peacefully brought her into death. She was also wonderful with my children as she explained each step and gave us the space and time we needed to say good bye. We are all heart broken over losing our dog but I couldn't have asked for a more dignified way for her to leave us. She died surrounded by the ones that have always loved her and cared for and in her home where she was comfortable. That is more than I could have ever hoped for."Angela RobersonCentral, LouisianaAugust 2, 2016
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Carly Billeaudeau, DVM"This was the single hardest decision that I've ever had weighing on my shoulders. Noah was my best friend, he was around before I met my husband, before I had children, my first apartment. I would sneak him into work with me and he would play in a little area under my desk :) He was my sweet old man. After almost 15 years it was his time to go but it was SO hard to let go. I think I've broken down many times every single day since. Dr. Carly was just SO sweet and gentle. My sweet guy barely knew she was there. She was so calming and genuinely caring.

This would have been a horrible experience and awful memory if I would have had to take him to the vet's office, completely stressed out. Instead we were in the quiet, he was resting sweetly in my arms.

I'm forever grateful for Dr. Carly's help getting through this process."

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Carly Billeaudeau, DVM"Almost one year ago, our pup had been diagnosed with kidney disease. Because of her advanced age, our goal became one of making her remaining days with us comfortable, joyful, and well-loved. We also made the decision that should the time come that we had to make a decision, we would use the local Lap of Love vet. It was easy for us, we felt we owed it to a beloved family member that had been with us for over 16 years. We had almost one more year with our girl. About two months before we said good-bye, I had my first contact with Dr. Carly Billeaudeau by phone. She was very kind, listening to our story, agreeing that it sounded like we were getting close to the end, telling me to call when we were ready. We enjoyed a little more time with our girl, Tori. On Saturday evening she became very ill, and began to rapidly decline. I emailed Dr. Carly on Sunday, she responded with a phone call. Again, she listened to my story through the tears with so much patience. We chose a date and time for the following Tuesday, June 28th, unless she took a turn for the worse, and then Dr. Carly would find a way to make herself available on Monday. Our girl continued to decline, we knew it was time. Tuesday morning Dr. Carly arrived on time. She had the utmost patience, explaining what was going to happen, telling me she wouldn't do anything until we were ready. She lovingly reached out and introduced herself to our girl. She had such kind words to say, telling us how pretty our girl was, how obvious the love and bond my girl and I shared. As she administered the different drugs, she spoke with a very soothing voice, to both myself and Tori. Once Tori was gone, she gave us some time with her. When she returned to the house, she was carrying a lovely bed with a pillow and blanket. She helped me place Tori in the bed, gave me time to take a couple of last photos, placed a blanket over her. And for me, the kindest, most caring thing she could do, was when she placed Tori on the passenger front seat with her. The respect that she showed for our dear family member knew no bounds. I knew that losing my girl would be very difficult. As a stay at home mom, then housewife, she and I were daily companions for 16.5 years. She slept in our bed. While this has been heartbreaking, I will forever be thankful for the Lap of Love organization for giving us the opportunity to say good-bye in our home. Tori was terrified of the vet's office, especially after a couple of hospital stays the last year of her life. That she could transition in the comfort of her own home, on my lap, means the world to me!!!! And I will forever be thankful for the blessing that Dr. Carly was at such a difficult time. I don't know how you do it, Dr. Carly, but thank you!!! Thank you for your actions on that day, thank you for your follow up emails. Words just cannot express how much I appreciate your helping us through such a heartbreaking ordeal. And thank you for reminding me that letting her go was an act of love too."Tracy HanksPride, LouisianaJuly 2, 2016

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Carly Billeaudeau, DVM"In a few hours, it will have been a week since we said goodbye to our sweet girl June and the least difficult part of the past seven days was the actual euthanasia. And we have Dr. Carly to thank. I don't know how it could have been more peaceful, more loving, more kind or more compassionate. Her quiet but strong presence gave us the courage we needed to be calm and focused. My husband Michael and I are forever grateful to her for making June's last moments with us a truly comforting memory. Dr. Carly will always have a special place in our hearts."Sarah KrackeBaton Rouge, LouisianaMay 16, 2016
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Carly Billeaudeau, DVM"Dr. Carly has such a soothing nature about her. She truly understands what you go through to make such a heart-wrenching decision. I was a nervous wreck and sobbing but Dr. Carly was my rock. She was strong when I couldn't be and offered me support and comfort. I knew when I spoke with Dr. Carly for the first time over the phone that I could trust her to help me make the right decision for my beloved Pewter and for that I will always be grateful."Mary DillingBaton Rouge, LouisianaMarch 5, 2016Pewter's Pet Memorial
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Carly Billeaudeau, DVM"I am forever grateful to Dr. Carly for taking such great care of my best friend, Pepper. My parents surprised me when I was 15 years old with a puppy, who spent the next fourteen years by my side. She was there for every major life event and even moved with me across the country for a one-year internship. Learning that she had cancer was devastating, as was witnessing her quick decline one evening. The idea of bringing her to a clinic to say goodbye didn't seem fair. I googled at-home pet euthanasia in Baton Rouge and came across Dr. Carly. Because of Dr. Carly, I was able to have a peaceful goodbye. Pep passed in her own bed in her home surrounded by love. It has been tough adjusting without Pep. At the same time, I believe it has been easier to heal knowing she passed away peacefully in her bed. If you're reading this, wondering what to do when this unfortunate decision must be made, call Dr. Carly. Your loved one will be in the best hands."Shannon DehghanpirBaton Rouge, LouisianaFebruary 26, 2016
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Carly Billeaudeau, DVM"I know Dr. Carly personally as a kind and caring friend. When it came time to say goodbye to Coco, our sweet Airedale terrier, I couldn't stomach loading her into the car. She was in so much pain, and her last few car trips were so stressful for her that she refused to go near a vehicle. Dr. Carly came to our house on a nice, sunny afternoon. Coco was laying in the grass in the backyard and greeted Dr. Carly warmly. She went over what was going to happen and she eased our concerns. My husband and I told her stories of Coco's adventures as the sedative took effect. When the final injection was given, Coco left us peacefully, in her favorite place, with her favorite people. I wouldn't have wanted it any other way. Dr. Carly's proficiency, calmness, and compassion made a difficult time bearable. There is a void in our home without our sweet girl, but I have solace in her peaceful and intimate passing. I highly recommend Dr. Carly and Lap of Love to anyone with an ailing or elderly pet."Angela RippetoeBaton Rouge, LouisianaJanuary 12, 2016
