Lap of Love Veterinarian: Erin Deveau, DVM"Dr. Erin is just incredible. Losing my 21 year old cat, Grace, was traumatic (I lived with her longer than I've lived with anyone including my parents and my son!) Dr. Erin made it so kind and gentle. Grace wasn't scared or upset and left my life peacefully. I recommend Lap of Love to all my pet loving friends."Nell ReidAlbuquerque, New MexicoJanuary 23, 2018
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Erin Deveau, DVM"The decision to put our dog Jake down was extremely difficult to make, but we wanted him to die at home. I was unsure of using a vet I was unfamiliar with until I met Dr. Erin. I immediately felt a sense of calm as she walked through the door. She really took the time to explain what was going to happen to Jake. She was kind, compassionate yet the utmost professional. I highly recommend Dr. Erin. She made a difficult situation easier to handle. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts, Dr. Erin."Christine ChesterAlbuquerque, New MexicoJanuary 12, 2018
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Erin Deveau, DVM"Losing a pet is always so hard but having the opportunity to meet Dr Deveau was comforting in so many areas. Our beloved Jackie O (14yrs) a Golden Retriever was an incredible pet. Her love for others, beautiful smile and eyes blessed our lives for many, many years. When she was diagnosed with cancer we thought we had a few months but unfortunately it was weeks. We wanted her to provide her the love and honor she gave us to her in her final days. We contacted Dr Deveau and from the moment she entered our home we ALL (my wife and I and our other dog Bisquit) knew this is what Jackie deserved. Her kindness and love was so REAL. Jackie O immediately reacted with love and grace with Dr Deveau. Knowing she was there for us at anytime was so comforting as we went through the final days.
Knowing we did not have to take her in a car and hand over to our vet and rather have it in our home was a spiritual and powerful experience for all of us. She died as we hoped she would, in our home, on her blanket, next to her buddy Bisquit with both of us saying our goodbyes; this is helping us tremendously in our upcoming days and weeks of grieving. Thank you Dr Deveau for your passion, knowledge and love for what you do, it was truly a gift for all of us."

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Erin Deveau, DVM"We can't thank you enough for your help in sending our precious Bear off to his next life. Dr. Erin Deveau made a heart-breaking experience beautiful and calm. Bear was able to say goodbye to his family and pass on without any stress, anxiety or pain. And Dr. Erin's demeanor should be replicated everywhere -- can't even express how amazing she is and how much we thank her."Viki HarrisonRio Rancho, New MexicoDecember 4, 2017
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Erin Deveau, DVM"Saying goodbye to Tiberius was one of the hardest things I have ever done. We wanted to say goodbye to him at home, but were not sure what that would entail. We went through Lap of Love and I am very glad we did.

Dr. erin came to our home. She knew everyone by name took the time to talk us through everything. She showed genuine compassion and caring in everything she did. I am beyond grateful to Dr. Erin. Her understanding, demeanor, and comforting words helped us all so much in such a very difficult time. I hope I don't have to, but if I do I would recommend this service to anyone."

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Erin Deveau, DVM"I am so thankful for Erin's DVM service. It was the first time for my family with this process, not easy, but peaceful to the end. Erin truly signifies what vet angels do day to day. As a nurse I could relate somewhat but learned so much from Erin about dignity for all animals dying. Bless this service."Connie rasmussenAlbuquerque, New MexicoNovember 20, 2017Brandi Sue Rasmussen's Pet Memorial
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Erin Deveau, DVM"I am so sad at the end of life for my 17 year old pup Daisy. A sadness that was made lighter by the extraordinary care of Dr. Erin. The entire process of helping Daisy pass was thoughtful and beautiful. I feel that having Dr. Erin helped my entire family heal. I am so grateful for Lap of Love and Dr Erin."Patricia SinghAlbuquerque, New MexicoNovember 12, 2017
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Erin Deveau, DVM"Thank you for helping us through a difficult time. Dr. Erin was so warm, caring, and sympathetic. We appreciate the service that Lap of Love has provided and will always miss our Riley."Kyle & Meghan LippertAlbuquerque, New MexicoNovember 6, 2017
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Erin Deveau, DVM"Putting a beloved pet down is never easy, as it is such a tough decision to make. Our little Buttercup was was such a sweet and loving little girl. She filled our lives with such joy and laughter. Once it became quite apparent that her illness was not going to get better and several long conversation with our vet it was decided that it was best to put her down before her illness progressed further. It was suggested by our vet that we call Dr. Erin with Lap of Love. It was the best decision we could have made as Dr. Erin was so very loving, kind and caring in helping our little Buttercup cross over. The care she took to explain the entire process and reassuring us that we had made the right decision made the experience so much easier. I can honestly say that from making the appointment to saying goodbye was made easier as the staff and Dr. Erin were so incredibly professional. I have two other dogs and if it should become necessary to make this decision again, there is no doubt, that we will use the services of Dr. Erin and Laps of Love again. Thank you all so much for helping us say goodbye to our sweet girl.

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Erin Deveau, DVM"It was a very difficult day made beautiful with the help of Dr. Erin Deveau. We couldn't imagine a more comforting way to let go of our wonderful companion-baby, Cameron. Dr. Erin made sure her pal Ginger could say goodbye and brought her treats to make it a little easier. Our baby went with the dignity she deserved in comfort surrounded by love. We cannot thank Dr. Erin and Laps of Love enough for being our comfort in this time."Annette RodriguezAlbuquerque, New MexicoOctober 21, 2017Cameron's Pet Memorial
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Erin Deveau, DVM"Words cannot express how grateful we are to have met you. Our dog Spot was more than just a pet he was part of our family. He was diagnosed with cancer and we knew that the decision was to be made of when we would have to say good-bye. Dr. Deveau was kind and compassionate. I am thankful that I found this service, unfortunately there is a stigma about Pit Bulls. Because of this we didn't want him to pass in a cold, un-friendly, scary clinic. We wanted Spot to feel safe and be comfortable in his last moments. Dr. Deveau did this for him. We will be eternally grateful. Spot lived 11 wonderful years and he was loved so much. He brought so much happiness to our lives. He loved twizzlers candy and playing the part of being this big intimidating dog. But what most didn't know is that he was lazy and was the biggest baby. It's amazing to me how selfless he was, even in his last moments he wanted to protect us and comfort us. I have never felt this kind of loss, and I really never understood it. Now I do. I posted this pic of him, I wish you could see his spot on the top of his head. Our hearts are missing something today and always; our Spotters is gone. Sept 16, 2017 will always be a sad day for my family. Forever in our hearts, we love and miss you SPOT.

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Erin Deveau, DVM"My family cannot thank Dr. Deveau enough. Our rottweiler, Hades, was not able to see his regular vet on this sad day as moving him would have put him in too much pain. I was worried about having someone whom I'd never met, and who our pup had never met, come in our space on this particular day. Thankfully, my worries were for nothing.

Dr. Deveau was so kind and comforting, peaceful and loving. She made this hard moment much easier with her gentleness. Although, I wish we still still had our Hades with us, I take comfort in connecting with Dr. Deveau and am glad that she came into our lives on that day."

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Erin Deveau, DVM"I want to thank Erin for her compassion and understanding when Sadie needed it. Sadie was in so much pain and Erin made time to come over at the end of her day. It was not easy to lose Sadie after 12 years. I am grateful the end of Sadie's life was peaceful and my anxiety minimized. Thank you Erin."Alfred FalconAlburquerque, New MexicoAugust 29, 2017
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Erin Deveau, DVM"When it came time to put our sweet Sam down we knew we couldn't take him to the Vet's office. He was always so afraid when we took him to the Vet. We contacted Lap of Love and everyone we dealt with was wonderful. Dr Erin has a true gift. She was so kind and reassuring and so loving to Sam. She made a very difficult situation bearable. Thank you ."J & C GamblinAlbuquerque, New MexicoAugust 24, 2017
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Erin Deveau, DVM"When it came time to say goodbye to our beloved Sean, Dr. Deveau helped us -- husband, wife, and dear companion -- through the occasion with grace, sympathy and kindness. She helped us see him on his way. She gave us the gift of a little while where he was no longer suffering.

I don't have the words to describe the comfort of being able to say goodbye in familiar, friendly surroundings. Sean passed away peacefully in his favorite spot. Our other two kitties were with us. We are shattered by grief but Dr. Erin left us with the certainty that we had done the kindest thing anyone could for our little lion.

If our little kitty angel got his wings that night, it was because another angel came to our home to help him put them on."

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Erin Deveau, DVM"When my sweet Dex told us it was time for him to go, I reluctantly listened. When I was finally able to accept a life without his love, I wanted nothing more for his last moments to be in my arms and his home. Dr. Erin had assisted with our neighbor back in December and it took a few calls before I could actually make an appointment for him. Dr. Erin was, in the purest sense of the word, an angel sent to us to help Dexter, and the rest of us, feel at peace about the decision. Her demeanor was compassionate and kind. She was able to discuss the process, what to expect, and other logistics such as burial in our yard, etc. with a kindness and respect for the sensitivity of the moment that truly reassured me of the gift we were able to give Dexter. We were able to engage in conversation with ease. She answered all of our questions, even the silly ones, which she never alluded to as ridiculous. Although I miss my boy every single day, I know without a doubt that this was the most precious gift I could give him and Dr. Erin made that possible. Thank you so much to the support team and Dr. Erin."Kris MihalicAlbuquerque, New MexicoJuly 30, 2017
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Erin Deveau, DVM"Dr. Erin provided hospice for our dog for about 6 months. When it was time to say goodbye, Dr. Erin was very compassionate and made the day much easier for all of us. I would highly recommend Dr. Erin. Two of my friends have also used her services and agree, this is the most dignified way to say goodbye."Tracy Reynoldsalbuquerque, New MexicoJuly 7, 2017
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Erin Deveau, DVM"Yesterday was one of the hardest days of our lives, but we will be forever grateful for the services provided by Dr. Erin Deveau. While we did not want to say goodbye, Dr. Erin helped us realize that we were making the right decision for our baby, Marley. We could not bear the though of stressing our cat out by taking her to a vet clinic for her final moments. She was peacefully laid to rest under her favorite tree in our backyard. We are eternally grateful for the kindness and compassion Dr. Erin and her assistant showed us during a very difficult time. I will not hesitate to recommend Lap of Love to others - what a wonderful organization. Thank you so much."Janel VogtAlbuquerque, New MexicoJune 13, 2017
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Erin Deveau, DVM"I have to say Dr. Erin made all the difference when I had to Euthanize my 17 year old dog Ayla Marie Lilley. She was so patient and she took the time to help us understand and absorb what was happening. She was kind enough to explain the process which helped us with this difficult situation. I would highly recommend using Lap of Love and Dr. Erin you can't get better then them."Vivian LilleyAlbuquerque, New MexicoJune 7, 2017
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Erin Deveau, DVM"I want to express my heartfelt appreciation to Dr. Deveau for her professional and compassionate care provided to my cat, Sky, on 5/22/17. She was sensitive to his needs as well as mine as she eased Sky's passing. The entire experience with Lap of Love was a positive one and I am very grateful for this hospice and euthanasia practice."Sandy MishkinAlbuquerque, New MexicoMay 23, 2017
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Erin Deveau, DVM"After 10 days we are still lost without our Alaska Girl. In my sorrow I have totally forgot Dr. Erin and Lap of Loves wonderful care and thoughtfulness. From my first call to Lap of Love that I couldn't control my emotions to Dr. Erin coming to our home and understanding and caring of our emotions, my wife and I cannot express our thankfulness.

As hard as this was we knew it was time if you read my other testimonial for Alaska to go and we couldn't of asked for anything better or more from Dr. Erin, an absolute wonderful caring Lady, Vet. there should be more of Dr. Erin in this world.

They took care of our Girl and we now have her back home with us in a beautiful urn.

Thank you Dr. Erin, Lap of Love and for the life of me cannot remember the lady at the front desk who listened and had total compassion for me.

GOD Bless you all.

Al & Donna"

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Erin Deveau, DVM"Dr. Erin was so kind and understanding and took the time to get to know our family and our beloved dog, Keisha. She explained the disease that Keisha was afflicted with, so that we could make an informed decision to euthanize her. Having the doctor come to our home was such a blessing. We were all comfortable and Keisha was in a loving and calm environment during her last breaths. I highly recommend Dr. Deveau! She was caring, professional and followed up to make sure that the whole family was doing well and celebrating the life our dearly departed. She turned a very sad day into a day of calm reflection on a beautiful life of fond memories with our sweet dog, Keisha."Torie RobinsonRio Rancho, New MexicoMay 15, 2017
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Erin Deveau, DVM"Our Mackey was almost seven when we adopted him from Animal Humane, so we were privilaged to have him with us for another eight years. We wanted to be certain his last journey from home was comfortable and stress-free, and we couldn't have been more pleased with our decision to engage Lap of Love. Dr. Erin was so caring, gentle, and expert in the handling the entire process. We felt assured all would be handled as we had decided, and we were not disappointed. The support was professional, personalized, and empathetic at every step and point of communication. Our boy left us surrounded by his family, in the comfort of his favorite bed, and transported with dignity. We highly recommend Dr. Erin and Lap of Love, and thank them for giving us support and peace of mind thoughout this process."Cynthia & Jeff SakamotoCorrales, New MexicoMay 7, 2017
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Erin Deveau, DVM"On April 25, 2017, my best friend and little soulemate crossed the rainbow bridge with the help of Dr. Erin Deveau of Lap of Love. We called Dr. Deveau when we knew that my little boy's health was failing. He had degenerative Myelopathy and arthritis. he was 14.4 years old. Dr. Deveau came into our home and did a wonderful assessment of Finnegan, his food, his medications and made suggestions to assist in his mobility. Dr. Deveau focus was pain management and giving Finnegan more good days. We did have more good days and a few more walks. Finnegan's health declined quckly unfortunately and he lost use of his back legs and his right front paw. We made the decision that we could not ask him to go on. Dr. Deveau came into our home and wih tenderness and understanding help Finnegan cross the raibow bridge. Although my heart is still breaking, Dr. Deveau made his passing peaceful, with no anxiety and with love and respect. I could not have asked for more. While I miss our little boy, I know I did everything I could. Thank you Dr. Deveau you are an angel to help our little angel."Glory CochraneALBUQUERQUE, New MexicoApril 26, 2017Angelskye Finnegan's Dream's Pet Memorial
