Lap of Love Veterinarian: Nora Glaser, DVM"Dr. Nora was so kind and understanding. I needed to know the timing was right and with understanding and compassion she told me what I needed to know to make the decision and assured me she would not proceed if she did not believe it was the right time. She wasn't rushed and so very kind to Tuffie. I thank her from my heart for helping to make a very difficult and painful decision about my sweet Tuffie not quit so hard. Doing this at home was the absolute best decision for me and more importantly for Tuffie. Thank you, Dr. Nora."Lee MoodyOld Town Alexandria, VirginiaSeptember 13, 2017Tuffie's Pet Memorial
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Nora Glaser, DVM"My special Molly(chocolate lab) was in my life for a long time. She seemed like she was old for ten years. When I said goodbye it seemed like she was such a big part of me. I knew in my heart that the time was getting close in February 2017. Molly needed assistance to move in most ways. Vet records stated that she was 18 years old and for a lab that seemed tremendous. She had a beautiful, long, eventful and loving life. She was still able to swim once a week for the last year of her life. On her last day she was able to swim one last time. Nora was so gentle and patient while we sat with her and held her. She was with the people she loved and she didn't have to go through the stresses of trying to walk again. Nora gave us all the time we needed and made the whole process filled with love for Molly. I do believe she loved me to much to leave me and that why she stayed so long. I found Molly wondering alone on a country road on my birthday. I always considered her a birthday present. I think someone had dumped her after she had puppies for them. This is for you Molly and I will always love you and miss you."Marion EarnestArlington, VirginiaAugust 19, 2017

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Beth Meadow, DVM"Such an amazing and compassionate company. From the moment, I called they guided me through the process with such gentleness and kindness. They understand the pain of owners and support you in every way possible.

Dr. Meadow was such a gentle soul, her presence comforted us and she facilitated my cats transition with utmost respect and gentleness.

I am so glad that I found you to allow my angel to leave this planet in the comfort of her home surrounded by her sounds, smell and kindness of people."

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Nora Glaser, DVM"When it was time to let our sweet 14 year old Lulu go, we made arrangements with Dr. Glaser for a home visit euthanasia. Lulu being deaf, and a bit high strung, she hated to be restrained. Dr. Glaser was warm and kind, and allowed time for the event to unfold. Lulu went peacefully, in the arms of those who loved her. We are grateful to Dr. Glaser for her service, but most of all her kindness and compassion."Noriko BellWashington, District of Columbia (DC)August 13, 2017

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Christine Shibly, DVM"Dr. Christine was wonderfully compassionate. In comfortable surroundings, Ripley passed peacefully in her “happy place” – on my lap on her favorite blanket. Dr. Christine encouraged us to allow our other kitty, Newt, to be there as well. Newt usually hides around strangers, but she must have known that Dr. Christine was a good person, because she came out and we were all with Ripley to comfort her in her final moments. These decisions will always be heart wrenching, but the comfort of home is always best. Thank you, thank you, thank you. What you do makes these moments a little easier."Debra DuffinReston, VirginiaAugust 6, 2017Ripley's Pet Memorial
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Nora Glaser, DVM"I am so grateful for Dr. Nora. When she arrived, she immediately snuggled Cricket and told us how sweet he was, and recognized that he was ready to go. We shared memories of his life, and she allowed us to take all the time we needed. When the time came, I played music in the background and petted him as he lay in my lap and fell asleep. All I wanted was to say goodbye to Cricket at home, holding him and surrounded by his family. Dr. Nora you are an angel - thank you for giving Cricket his wings."Stephanie BarnettWoodbridge, VirginiaJuly 27, 2017Cricket's Pet Memorial
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Nora Glaser, DVM"Dr. Nora was such a blessing to our family. She was so sweet with Gabby and made sure she took the time to get to know her. Dr. Nora genuinely took the time to understand how much Gabby meant to me-- she validated how fantastic my little girl was. She explained everything so gently and let me cry. I never felt rushed. Dr. Nora, I'm so grateful for you. Please know you made this painful process much easier."Amanda PurrierManassas, VirginiaJuly 17, 2017Gabby's Pet Memorial

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Beth Meadow, DVM"Doctor Beth is such a sweet, empathetic, wonderful soul, and we are so grateful to have had her ease our sweet Sadie girl's pain. She very gently explained every step of the process, reassuring us that we had made the right choice. She was very accommodating to our unorthodox setup- she spoke with three long-distance family members over Skype and FaceTime, ensuring all were included and able to say goodbye. She helped us all through a very difficult time, and we will always be thankful for that. She gifted Sadie a peaceful and dignified departure, safe in her home and surrounded by everyone who loves her."Emma CowardWashington, District of Columbia (DC)May 31, 2017
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Nora Glaser, DVM"This may have been one of the most difficult decisions I've ever made. Dr. Nora helped so much. I cannot express how her kindness, understanding and patience helped us accept we needed to say goodbye to Buddy. I will never take a pet to a vet's office again. Thank you, Dr. Nora for helping Buddy."Kim GoffHerndon, VirginiaMay 19, 2017Buddy's Pet Memorial
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Nora Glaser, DVM"We want to thank Dr. Nora for everything! She made a difficult situation so much better. She made our 3 young boys, who had never gone through this before, so comfortable throughout the whole process. Nothing can compare to saying good bye to your baby relaxed in their own home with their family around them and have a Dr. as sweet as the one we had helping you through it. Thank you!!!!"Mike and Sarah EspositoSterling, VirginiaMay 17, 2017Max's Pet Memorial
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Nora Glaser, DVM"Dr. Nora was so compassionate can caring when she came to help us let Rusty cross the rainbow bridge. She listened to our story of how we adopted Rusty and all his shenanigans over the years (he was a character!). We laughed and she let us cry. She understood what we needed, and honored our requests. I could not have asked for anyone better to help us. I honestly appreciate her help."Debby HenryManassas, VirginiaApril 24, 2017Rusty's Pet Memorial
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Beth Meadow, DVM"I cannot say enough good words for Dr. Beth Meadow. She was kind, concerned and respectful to me and Mackenzie. She stroked Mackenzie the entire time she was with us. She explained all procedures and let us take the lead . Her explanations made me feel good. She would give her a relaxing and pain killing drug the an anesthetic that would put her to sleep and she would never wake up. Somehow that sounded better than just taking her life. She told me she would take her home have her cremated and have her back home to us in a week. Dr. Beth wrapped Mackenzie in a blanket that said Dignity on it and put her in her car. She carried her to her car and Mackenzie looked just like a baby. At that moment I had one last request. Would she take her to the park near our home where she had her daily walks? We then headed to the park for one last time. She sat with Mackenzie in her arms all wrapped up like a baby....and yes Dr. Beth I caught the kisses you blew to me as I turned down my street and headed home. You turned a difficult day into a beautiful day for Mackenzie and me."Kathy CimatoOak Hill, VirginiaApril 17, 2017Mackenzie's Pet Memorial
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Beth Meadow, DVM"Dr. Beth was amazing, compassionate, respectful, and understanding. I was incredibly relieved to have her there - Lucky felt comfortable around her and was happy to stay in the comfort of her favorite place - our bedroom. Dr. Beth helped us the entire way and gave us so much time to say our much-needed goodbyes. It was the best possible experience I could have asked for Lucky. A very peaceful, calm transition."Heather GaleReston, VirginiaApril 7, 2017Lucky Gale's Pet Memorial
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Beth Meadow, DVM"As painful as Thursday was for us, I have to give the highest praise to the folks at Lap of Love Veterinarians in Fairfax. Dr. Beth Meadow came to our house to help Ellie through her transition, and she could not have been more caring, respectful, and sympathetic. She treated Ellie like a good friend, and was so gentle in everything she did. After the doctor left, we found that she had left behind for us a plaster cast of Ellie’s paw, and a small clear container with a bit of Ellie’s fur in it from where she had to shave a small patch on her leg. Ellie’s passing was very peaceful, and, as strange as it may sound, also beautiful."Allen McBrideWoodbridge, VirginiaMarch 24, 2017Ellie Mae's Pet Memorial
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Beth Meadow, DVM"There are incredibly difficult moments in life, ones you don't want to face alone. Having the understanding, comforting, relaxed presence of Dr. Beth with us for Phred's last hour was just the right touch. He got to stay in his home, in his favorite chair, with loving touches and words surrounding him. "Love Phred" was the first thing he heard when he joined our family and the last thing we said to him as he passed."Alexandria, VirginiaMarch 14, 2017Phred's Pet Memorial
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Nora Glaser, DVM"Dr. Nora was amazing. She was so kind and understanding. I am truly grateful for her professionalism and efficiency."Laura EndsleyHerndon, VirginiaMarch 10, 2017Mel's Pet Memorial
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Beth Meadow, DVM"Dr Beth was so understanding & compassionate. She helped us through a very difficult situation as our dog bit my husband again. This time was bad. We had some bites from him from almost day 1. She helped us realized that our dog was suffering. It wasn't just about us. He deserved happiness & peace from the torment that he must have felt. All the fear & anxiety that he was going through. Thank you Dr Beth for helping us realize that. She told us that he knew we did the best we could with him & loved him. All the trainers we had to help him. We thought we were doing the best to keep him around. She was so respectful with his body. We cried & she hugged us. I will never forget how she helped us through this difficult situation. May she live a long, happy & prosperous life. She did a great deed."Susi BoudreauxAlexandria, VirginiaFebruary 27, 2017Anslie's Pet Memorial
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Nora Glaser, DVM"I had not expected to have to call Lap of Love so soon. Four months earlier they assisted with Fluffy's earthly departure. When Smokey's time came I knew I had to give him the same dignified peaceful treatment so called Lap of Love. Dr Nora was so thoughtful and helped make Smokey's last minutes peaceful and I will always appreciate that care and compassion."Jennifer SmithFairfax, VirginiaFebruary 13, 2017Smokey's Pet Memorial
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Nora Glaser, DVM"Dr. Nora assisted me last February when my 17-year-old cat, Emily, died. She was able to lessen the pain of that experience for me and I thank her for that. I was hoping I wouldn’t need to contact Lap of Love again for several years but on Christmas morning my little Kyra became ill. I contacted Lap of Love on the evening of January 24th. The following morning Dr. Nora came to help me again. This time I requested that Kyra spend her last moments on her favorite lounger in the sun room and she agreed it was exactly the right place. It was a warm, sunny day and there was a gentle breeze. Kyra died peacefully with the sun shining on her. Dr. Nora was exceptionally kind and compassionate."Herndon, VirginiaJanuary 31, 2017Kyra's Pet Memorial
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Nora Glaser, DVM"Dr Nora is an amazingly kind individual that allowed my dog to have the kind of send off that I thought he should have. I agonized over the where and when and lapoflove enabled me to customize this to my own desires. The end of life experience ended up being very special, and I will remember it always, even though it was a very sad day. I will be forever grateful to lapoflove and Dr. Nora for letting me say goodbye in the way that I thought was appropriate. My dog had a great send off and was happy as we petted him goodbye. RIP Django. You were loved almost as much as the love you gave."Jennifer MarcaWashington DC, District of Columbia (DC)January 8, 2017
