Lap of Love Veterinarian: Ashleigh Rhoades, DVM"Dr. Rhoades was so sweet and patient that day. Bama was not having it and kept talking and talking....having that Samoyed in her gave her a voice and boy she used it. Dr. Rhoades let her have her say and her gentleness and kindness with us made all the difference. Thank you so much for being the one there with us in the end."bettina pageVashon Island, WashingtonJanuary 22, 2018Alabama's Pet Memorial

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Ashleigh Rhoades, DVM"We'd like to thank Dr. Ashleigh Rhodes, who made a very difficult day one of peace in our home. Her sincerity, kindness and professionalism helped Samantha pass to the Rainbow Bridge on her pillow in our home, surrounded by her family. We also wish to thank Cortnie who we spoke to on the phone the night before, to make arrangements. Her communication of the process and what we needed to do and what to expect was exactly what we needed. We appreciate the communication and information you passed along to us via email afterwards as well. Thank you so very much. We appreciate that you are there when needed for our very special family members."Carol CarrasRenton, WashingtonJanuary 15, 2018Samantha's Pet Memorial
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Ashleigh Rhoades, DVM"Dr Ashleigh came to our house the evening before Christmas Eve. She treated Cleo and my daughter and I with gentleness, kindness and dignity. She had a simple basket with a warm blanket to lay Cleo in after it was all over. After giving her a final hug and laying her in the basket, it gave me a peaceful image of Cleo to remember. Dr Ashleigh helped us through an exceedingly painful time, and I am very grateful."Issaquah, WashingtonDecember 29, 2017Cleo's Pet Memorial

Thank you for being so kind and so compassionate. Yusuke was so happy to see you. Being able to give him a peaceful death without fear was the one last thing I could help to give him. Thank you for being so wonderful and patient, I miss him so much but you made a painful experience not as painful because I know he wasn't scared and because I know he is at peace."

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Ashleigh Rhoades, DVM"My Pyrnees had a stroke in the middle of the night. Dr. Ashleigh was there before noon the next day. She and the team made a very difficult day so much easier. My dog was able to transition at home and without the additional pain and fear that I know would have been occurred if we would have to had to get to a vet's office. And Dr. Ashleigh is just such a warm and caring person whose love for animals shines through. Many thanks...."Seattle, WashingtonOctober 29, 2017

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Ashleigh Rhoades, DVM"Our Otis had hemangiosarcoma and pretty quickly took a turn for the worst on a Saturday afternoon, I called Lap of Love around 2pm and we were able to get an appointment that evening. We were able to make Otis last hours full of his favorite things...he was able to eat a great steak dinner with Cesar salad and marshmallows for dessert something he hadn't done in a while! We had him out on the front porch in his favorite spot looking over the neighborhood on his favorite bed with his beloved stuffy and all his people by his side. Dr. Ashleigh was amazing, very supportive and very good with Otis, he even got up to greet her when she arrived...I think he was ready and happy to see her. This decision is always heart wrenching, but Lap of Love and Dr. Ashleigh made the experience very memorable for us in the best possible way."Cheryl H.Newcastle, WashingtonOctober 11, 2017
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Ashleigh Rhoades, DVM"Dr. Ashleigh had visited us a few months earlier as we realized our time with Ollie was coming to an end.

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Ashleigh Rhoades, DVM"Thank you so much to Dr. Ashleigh Rhoades, DVM for being so amazing. Thank you for being so patient and kind. You were so gentle and sweet with our little boy and both Mark and I appreciate what you did for us. We feel very at peace with having you come to our home. You knew how much our little boy meant to us and we loved how you took the time to listen to the story of our little boy. This process is never an easy one, but you were truly amazing. We both want to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for making it a little less painful and stressful. We have already recommended Lap of Love to many of our friends and to our friends in our area, we have recommended you. Thanks so much for taking care of us and our little Samson."Carrie BarakKent, WashingtonMay 14, 2017Samson's Pet Memorial
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Ashleigh Rhoades, DVM"Dr. Ashleigh met with us on May 1st and we were not ready to lose our boy. We were supported and given very good tools to keep track of Finnegan's progress and analyze where we were. It was very clear over the next few days that he wasn't going to get better or more mobile, and Dr. Ashleigh returned on May 8. The process was very peaceful, and we fed Finnegan a new York steak (which he LOVED), snuggled him and loved him and set him free. She was amazing, compassionate, kind and I can't imagine how she does this every day. All I can say, is that it is a true calling and probably the most appreciated profession I could ever imagine. Thank you for making it just a tiny bit easier."Joleen HughesSeattle, WashingtonMay 11, 2017Finnegan's Pet Memorial
