Lap of Love Veterinarian: Lori Braun, DVM"It was really helpful having Dr. Lori here for us, I really couldn't have asked for a better person to help send my sweet baby off. I felt very comfortable knowing she had worked with ferrets in the past and that she had been a ferret owner herself; I really loved how she loved on Garth! She made it as easy and comforting as it could be for us and Garth, and I'm so thankful for that."Korel and PK Ponti-FossPortland, OregonJanuary 19, 2018Garth's Pet Memorial
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Lori Braun, DVM"I am so grateful to Dr. Lori and all that she did to help during this time. I really feel like divine intervention happened that day, how I found her and the timing of it all. My boy wouldn't have made it until the original time scheduled. For her to come when she did was divine timing. It made the transition the very best it could have been. It would have broke my heart even more to have watched him suffer any longer than he did. I will forever be grateful for her help, she said all the right things, gave us the space we needed and talked us through. My mom loved her too, I couldn't have asked for better person to help with this. Thank you.

She was our angel during this time. I recommend her highly and when the time comes for my other babies she will be my first call."

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Lori Braun, DVM"I just wanted to take a moment to say thank you to Dr. Lori for helping us. Losing Ty felt terrible but it was also inevitable, and her support was exactly what we needed. We weren’t sure when to help her pass or if we were to that point and Dr Lori helped us make that choice in a way that was very gentle. We appreciate all the time she took to talk to us about our options, explain the process and how Ty would feel, and the kindness she displayed while we struggled with our decision. She helped make a horrible day just a little bit easier. I am beyond grateful."Natalie HannahPortland, OregonJanuary 10, 2018
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Lori Braun, DVM"Dr Lori was so amazing with helping us with our difficult decision on letting our beloved dog pass. Her empathy and sincerity helped comfort us with such a peaceful passing on her favorite rug in our own living room. The blanket that she wrapped our dog’s body said, “Love and Dignity” which spoke true. We are very grateful for her help. She came to our help in the evening, and her timing was incredible. We feel blessed that we found Dr. Lori"Charlie WymanSalem, OregonJanuary 9, 2018

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Lori Braun, DVM"Thanks, Lori. I've been telling everyone how you made Leah so comfortable and relaxed. I don't think she even knew what was happening - only that she had a bunch of people petting and loving on her. I'm so grateful to you for making her passing so easy for her (and for me and Thom). I'll put together a memorial for her and put it on your memorial page. What a lovely idea. You're a special person to do what you do and to make it all so loving. Thank you so much.

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Lori Braun, DVM"We couldn't have asked for a more peaceful and loving end to our two beloved dogs . Our first dog Dodger was showing signs of pain and was uncomfortable due to old age. Our second dog started deteriorating rapidly due to an aggressive cancer. Dr Lori was compassionate and comforting in our time of need. We knew it was time to say goodbye and dr. Lori answered all our questions with knowledge and confidence. This was a scary ride for us and the fact that it was a calm and peaceful experience was a blessing in itself. Thank you dr. Lori for spending time with our dogs and us in their final hours. This was one of the hardest decisions in our lives and I can't speak highly enough about these services. Thank you for your kindness."Rachael SunMolalla, OregonAugust 30, 2017

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Lori Braun, DVM"I want to tell everyone how kind Dr. Lori was. With her hospice help Daisy (my 17 year old heeler mix) and I were able to enjoy 5 more months together, we enjoyed every minute! And when Daisy became tired and it was time for her to go up to the rainbow bridge Dr. Lori made it so peaceful and perfect. I can't thank her enough!"Diane OrtegaPortland, OregonJuly 31, 2017
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Lori Braun, DVM"Having to say goodbye to our Gus was one of the hardest decisions we have had to make. His presence in our family was a big one, and his sweet soul was seen and felt by all that he met. Dr. Lori came to help us say goodbye. She listened to our stories and showed so much love and compassion. We wanted his last day to be special and she helped make it perfect. We are heartbroken that he is gone, but so incredibly happy to have had the most perfect goodbye. Thank you Dr. Lori for being the amazing caring person that you are. You truly understand the love we have for our fur babies and the places they hold in our hearts. We are forever grateful to have had you come and help us say goodbye to Gus. Thank you so much."Kelly StarbuckStayton, OregonJuly 10, 2017Gus's Pet Memorial
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Lori Braun, DVM"Dr. Lori,

Thank you from the bottom of our hearts. Your kindness, generosity and selflessness are unmatched. You coached my husband and I through one of the hardest days of our lives. You were warm, you explained everything. You let me cry on your shoulder. You didn't rush us or make us feel guilty. You listened to everything we had to say. You let us cry, laugh and hold her until the end. Although this was one of the worst decisions we've ever had to make, we would never take back the experience we had with you. You hold a special place in our hearts and even though it may hurt, we know someday we'll see you again. That's what people do when they love animals. They keep giving until they have nothing left or all the dogs in the world are saved. You are truly an amazing woman.
Thank you again,
The Thompsons"

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Lori Braun, DVM"A heartfelt Thank You to Dr. Lori and her compassion, understanding and ability to help ease and calm. She truly made that heart wrenching day actually quite beautiful and so very memorable and touching! Each of us were so grateful for her and how she did everything; from explaining each step to bringing smiles to our lips by helping us share stories and memories, the way she handled Nala, to the paw print and soft fur memorabilia, to her warm hugs and even that she drove away slowly meant so very much to each of us!
I just want to try to Thank You for all that she did for Nala and for us! It takes an extraordinary person to do this service; and she truly is extraordinary, sincere, and has an exquisite heart with so much compassion!"

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Lori Braun, DVM"This morning Dr Lori Braun came to my home to assist with the euthanasia of my beloved dog, Jessie. Having only found out four days ago that she was dying of Lymphoma, I was devasted that the illness had progressed so quickly. To look at her, you would think she was fine, but I could see the labored breathing, etc that was taking her from me. Lori brought brownies for Jessie, which was a treat she had never experienced before, and I fed her while Lori sedated her. Pretty soon she was so relaxed and peaceful that she never felt any discomfort from the final injection! Lori was loving and soothing, both to Jessie and me...me who needed it the most! This was by far the most spiritual experience and the fact that Jessie succumbed in her own bed surrounded by love! What more loving way could you have? I highly recommend this in home service and thank Dr. Lori for being such a compassionate caring vet!"Carolyn JonesSalem, OregonJune 5, 2017
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Lori Braun, DVM"The cruelty that filled our dog Boomer's first year of life also caused his body to fail years before it should have. It was so incredibly hard letting him go, still hoping for one more day to lavish our always happy boy with affection. Dr. Lori was wonderfully patient with us and made his passing just as comfortable and full of love as we strived to make everyday of his life with us. Thank you for that."Joel and Kristin RicePortland, OregonMay 9, 2017
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Lori Braun, DVM"Dr. Lori was a blessing during this very difficult time of loss. She treated Paco & us with such respect & care.

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Lori Braun, DVM"December 9th was such a difficult time, saying goodbye to my beloved Bubba boy - and for what it was, it couldn't have been done any better.

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Lori Braun, DVM"Thank you Dr. Lori.
You are a very special veterinarian. You have a way with our companions and their human family. You really care and it shines. It was so very important to us to have you there. I'm sure all of the doctors would have been wonderful, but having you there made it extra calm and special. It felt right and helped me accept the decision and know that it was the right choice. You made the sad day a happy memory. It was a wonderful goodbye. Thank you for your kind words. Most of all, thank you for what you do and for caring so deeply about our furry family."
