Lap of Love Veterinarian: Toby Goldman, DVM"Dr. Toby Goldman was amazing...he helped us through a very difficult time. He was compassionate and caring and professional..... I don't think I will ever do this another way. Thank you from all of us."Ken HendersonLas Vegas, NevadaJuly 14, 2017
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Toby Goldman, DVM"It takes a special person to truly understand the connection between human and animal companion. Dr. Toby is just that. From the beginning until the end, we knew we were in good hands. It was unfortunate that two of our dogs, including Dakota, would meet Dr. Toby under such heart breaking scenarios, however, I know that they found peace in the process and accepted his gentleness openly. Dr. Toby was informative, compassionate, gentle and reassuring. Saying good-byes to your best friend and loving family member is one of the hardest things in life, but the ministering of understanding, support, and grieving is more than we could have ever expected. Dr. Toby, we love you and appreciate you more than we can express. Thank you for loving us as a family and not just another client."Kristina WaierLas Vegas, NevadaJuly 6, 2017Dakota's Pet Memorial
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Toby Goldman, DVM"Saying goodbye to Elvis was one of the hardest things we've ever done. I can't thank Dr. Toby enough for his kindness and much needed support. He walked us through the process and put our minds at ease that what we were doing was for Elvis. Dr. Toby and all the others who do this are selfless, very special people. I also want to mention Cheryl Wyatt, who took our call. She was wonderful. This is a horrible thing to go through, but they were amazing and so caring."Kim and Cary SoaresHenderson, NevadaJune 16, 2017Elvis's Pet Memorial
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Toby Goldman, DVM"I have never had to say goodbye to a pet so when the time came I knew I just wanted my baby to be peaceful and at home. Never would I have thought that I would talk to the most compassionate and understanding people throughout the process. I think I spoke with about 6 different people on separate occasions and each of them was like a warm hug. When I needed to cry, they allowed me time. They were consoling and genuinely loving. Dr. Toby arrived on the day we said good-bye to our Chemo. Instantly I felt the love and concern. He had such a calming energy talking us through each step. He really got to know our baby in the short time we were together. He gave us the time we needed to say good-by and didn’t rush us at all. His compassion and strength helped me to get through and I can never thank him enough for the beautiful and peaceful passing our sweet Chemo had. I will never forget how beautiful and relaxed Chemo was on that day. It is so comforting to know our sweet baby was in loving hands."Colleen StiritzLas Vegas, NevadaMay 28, 2017Chemo's Pet Memorial
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Toby Goldman, DVM"Dr. Toby was incredible, he immediately started putting us at ease about the whole process, never tried to rush or make us feel as though we were over doing it. He wrote a beautiful email to us the following day and just today I received a beautiful card. In the short time he knew Reggie, he actually listened and heard us talk about Reggie and in the tribute he posted he managed to really seem to know our little fellow. So very very thankful for his kindness and compassion and understanding of how very heartbroken we were ❤️ We will recommend Lap of Love to everyone we know that ever has a seriously ill animal child."Cheryl GasconLas vegas, NevadaMay 18, 2017Reggie's Pet Memorial
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Toby Goldman, DVM"Words cannot adequately express our thanks to Dr. Toby and Lap of Love. From first contact, we received much needed information, understanding, and expert advice. There was never any pressure or judgment, just a guiding hand to help us make a very difficult decision.

As soon as Dr. Toby met Jack, he just seemed to “get” him and vice versa. Dr. Toby patiently listened, talked us through everything, and answered our questions. We immediately felt like our little family was in very good hands. He took care of all of the arrangements and very helpfully contacted our regular veterinarian for us.

We could not have envisioned a better send off for our beloved Jack--a perfectly beautiful spring day at home on “Jack’s grass” with plenty of sweet potatoes. Besides helping Jack cross peacefully over the Rainbow Bridge, Dr. Toby gently guided his anxious Pet Parents every step of the way. We cannot thank Lap of Love and Dr. Toby enough for making a difficult event into a joyful celebration of our quirky, funny, fiercely loyal, thoroughly Corgi Jack."

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Toby Goldman, DVM"It was entirely my privilege to take care of my black lab Sam. Full of life, love and kisses, acting as my shadow, the day came when Sam, at the age of almost 14, needed the gentle, compassionate help of Dr. Toby. Sam slipped away at home with his face in my hands so peacefully. Thank you Dr. Toby, you made a very sad day more bearable. See you at the rainbow bridge Sam."Dot StewartLas Vegas, NevadaMay 5, 2017
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Toby Goldman, DVM"I cannot express how amazing Dr. Toby is, and the staff at Lap of Love. He wrote the most heart warming eulogy for my beloved Gloria and also mentioned her loving brother Jake who died 4 months earlier. Lap of Love is a God send.. Dr. Toby made the experience very relaxing and I will never forget him."Pat DahnLas Vegas, NevadaApril 16, 2017
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Toby Goldman, DVM"I cannot thank Lap of Love and Dr. Toby enough. My 15 year-old cat, Lucky, had kidney disease that was progressing. I knew he was not in good shape, and I had a trip scheduled to be out of town leaving my 17 year-old daughter in charge of Lucky. I was extremely hesitant to take this trip, but did so anyway hoping he would be okay until I got home. Unfortunately, Lucky collapsed while I was away and it became clear that my daughter would have to handle this situation alone. I called Lap of Love, and on a Saturday evening Dr. Toby was able to get to our home within just a few hours. He assured my daughter this was the right time for Lucky. He was gentle with my daughter, and with Lucky. He was a calm and soothing presence, and made a very stressful and difficult situation as pleasant as it could be. I was able to be on the speaker phone while Dr. Toby talked us through what was happening, and my daughter stroked Lucky, helping him transition with love. I said my goodbyes to Lucky, and felt as close as I could be, while being across the country. After I returned home, we received a kind, hand-written card from Dr. Toby expressing his condolences. The very difficult situation was made much better by the caring staff at Lap of Love, and by Dr. Toby who clearly cares about his work. Thank you to all who made this a much more pleasant experience than it could have been."Liisa RoseLas Vegas, NevadaApril 2, 2017

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Jessica Jensen, DVM"This wonderful service was recommended by my pet hospital. They provide hospice and euthanasia services for pets in the comfort of their own home. Both Dr. Jessica and the receptionist were kind, compassionate and caring. Dr. Jessica gave me as much time as I needed to say goodbye to my loyal fur baby Brisby. I had been dreading this day for months; but as loving owners, we hope to make our pets' voyage over the Rainbow Bridge as peaceful and comfortable as possible, and "Lap of Love" is there to ease you through it. They gave me a paw print in plaster and a wisp of his fur to remember him by."Lisa SavyBoulder City, NevadaFebruary 10, 2017Brisby's Pet Memorial
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Toby Goldman, DVM"Dr Toby,

Hello! Kiera, Alex, and Myself would really like to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for coming to the house in our time of need. We appreciate the time you took to explain the process and the time you gave us with our baby Roxy before we had to say goodbye. We've been taking it one day at time and sure do miss our Roxy Beany but with your help we know we made the right decision. Right as you were getting ready to leave the house it started to rain very faintly and when I walked back in the house and looked out the window we seen a big full rainbow and just knew that was our baby letting us know she made it to the Rainbow Bridge. Thank you again Dr Toby for all of your compassion and understanding during this difficult time!

Thank You,
Amber"

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Toby Goldman, DVM"Dr. Goldman was an answer to my prayers. I had recently moved from Pennsylvania, and was having a hard time adjusting to the veterinary practices here. I was accustomed to having a compassionate, caring vet with a holistic view of treatment. It was difficult for me to find such a friend for my animals her.
When I needed to make the final decision, I was directed to Lap of Love. I was so happy to be able to let Stray have her final breaths at home.
Dr. Goldman was very empathetic, patient, and extremely professional. From the moment he arrived, he was supportive. At no point did he make me feel rushed. He gave me as much time as I needed to say my goodbye. And it was very helpful that he arranged for Stray's journey to her resting place.
I will always remember my final moments with Stray. She was comfortable, and there was no struggle for her at the end.
I am thankful to Dr.Toby and Lap of Love"

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Toby Goldman, DVM"Our wonderful boxer Sherlock became gravely ill. My husband and I realized that we could no longer keep Sherlock with us and were given Lap of Love's number by our veterinary hospital. Dr. Toby came to our home that evening and was very kind to all of us. We were so impressed at Dr. Toby's thoughtfulness and consideration for Sherlock's condition and our feelings also.

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Toby Goldman, DVM"We wish to thank Dr. Toby, assisted us with grace and kindness, and put our minds at ease to the extent possible.

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Jessica Jensen, DVM"Dr. Jensen was a complete angel. She helped make Allie's passing so beautiful and peaceful with her gentle spirit.

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Toby Goldman, DVM"Late yesterday Dr. Toby helped me with the difficult decision to help Buddy on to the after life. Dr. Toby made the very sad event tolerable. Buddy (along with his sister Trouble) had been my close companion for the last 13 years. With numerous moves across country, Buddy was always easy going and accepting of all of our changing circumstances. Buddy will be missed!"Lynn SchwermanLas Vegas, NevadaDecember 16, 2016
