She really exceeded our expectations and we are very appreciative of her service and dedication to what she does. I highly recommend Lap of Love to anybody going through the difficult time of deciding what is best for your pet and family.

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Dana Lewis, DVM"Dr. Dana was absolutely amazing. She was gentle, caring and so very patient.

Her follow up note in the hours afterward demonstrates just how much she and Lap of Love care about what they do and how they can help us send on our loved ones with peace, respect and dignity.

I'm so happy she and Lap of Love have chosen to provide this very difficult service and do so with so much thought, care and concern."

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Dawnetta Woodruff, DVM"Choosing to do the best thing and the right thing for my sweet little baby was one the hardest decision I've ever had to make. Charlie was a part of our family for almost 18 years and he had a personality and swagger, yes SWAGGER!, like no other. He was there for our family to celebrate some of the best days of our luves and he was there to live us unconditionally and help us through some of the worst. The last time I took him to the doctor he was terrified because he knew there was something wrong with him and I know in my heart he sensed he may not be coming back home with us. We were given medication which worked and we we were blessed to have our sweet boy for 3 more weeks. A friend referred me to Dr. Dawnetta and I will forever be thankful. We were dreading Dr. Dawnetta's arrival at our home like the plague but as soon as she walked through our door I knew everything would be okay. Charlie had been unable to get up and walk for a few hours but as soon as she sat on the floor by us he got up and went to her and gave her kisses. He knew she was there to help him and he was thankful as well. I couldn't have taken him to the vet because he would have been so scared and I didn't want him to leave us like that. But being on his blankets in his favorite spot in his home with everyone he loved was the way our precious boy deserved to go. It was so peaceful and Dr. Dawnetta's compassion and demeanor helped us through. She allowed us time to love on him before he was laid to rest and she also gave us time alone with him after he was gone. She is an absolute angel and I cannot thank her enough. It took me all day to gather the courage to make that call and when I finally did I spoke with Donna. She is a sweet lady and a blessing as well. Her kind compassionate way meade me at peace with the decision I had made. Thank you both from the bottom of my heart. You made the unthinkable bearable 🐾💕"Kim AubuchonFlorissant, MissouriApril 25, 2017
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Betsy King, DVM"When it was time for me to say goodbye to my sweet boy Riley a cairn terrier, my best friend and companion of over 15 years,
we were so fortunate to have Dr. Betsy help both of us. Making this decision is always difficult, but Dr Betsy's compassion and
kindness was very comforting. She gave us the gift of peace after Riley's long struggle with auto immune health problems. It
meant so much to me to have Riley at home and not stressed by a trip to the vet. Dr. Betsy is a special person and someone
I will always be grateful to for the special gift she gave us."

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Amanda Page, DVM"On Monday, April 3, 2017, our dear old golden retriever Cooper, decided it was his time to go. After having many bad days over the past few weeks, he stopped eating and drinking, and could no longer get up. Struggling with the idea of another stressful trip to the vet, I contacted Lap of Love. They sent an amazing vet (Dr. Amanda) out the same day. She was wonderful. She put our sweet boy out of misery in the peace and calm of our own yard, under the shade of his favorite tree. She gave us all the time we needed to say a difficult goodbye. I can't say enough good things about our experience with them. It made his passing a little more bearable. Dr. Amanda was exactly what our family needed. A heartfelt thank you to Dr. Amanda, Dr. Hannah, and Lap of Love.
Sincerely,
Barbara, Robert, & the Fernandez Family"

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Melanie Santspree, DVM"From the moment I met Dr. Melanie at the door and she hugged me I knew I had made the right decision. Compassion and caring does not even come close to an accurate description. She made the most difficult time in our lives much more bearable. She explained everything and made us feel assured before she did anything. She talked to our beloved Hercules as if he was her own. I know that kind of genuine care and concern is special. I feel truly blessed that our almost 13(missed by a few days) years old love, yellow lab Hercules had the opportunity to rest in his favorite chair surrounded by family to say goodbye. He was a wonderful creature we had the privilege of spending almost 13 years with and loving us all with his whole heart. He taught us all what real unconditional love truly is all about. I will be forever grateful for Dr. Mel she allowed our beautiful Hercules the dignity and respect that he so deserved after giving his all to us for so many years.

With our loving hearts,
Tammy & Brian Bik and family"

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Kristine Campanelli, DVM"As heart wrenching as this process was for us, Dr. Kristine’s care and concern made it better than we could have hoped for. Because of Dr. Kristine, our precious Lola left this world peacefully, surrounded by love. We never felt rushed, as she patiently explained the process and gave us all the time we needed to say goodbye. We were so touched by all of the small but extra special details Dr. Kristine provided. On top of being so kind during such a difficult time, Dr. Kristine created a mold of Lola’s paw, saved locks of Lola’s fur, wrote a memorial, and sent us a touching card. We are so grateful that she could bring comfort to an otherwise awful time in our lives. Thank you Dr. Kristine and Lap of Love!"Jeanna MSouth Setauket, NYApril 24, 2017Lola's Pet Memorial
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Becky Frank, DVM"Every interaction with Lap of Love has been exceptional. You provide a wonderful service and we greatly appreciate the compassion that you have shown to our family and, especially, to Ruby. I am so thankful we were able to be together and at home. Dr. Becky was perfect - even the little details (no lab coat/scrubs, she was a little dressed up as one might dress for a funeral, and her quiet/calm demeanor, the paw-print and seeds for her grave) are very much appreciated and made Ruby's passing as kind, comforting and dignified as possible. Thank you so much."Kristen RobesonQuakertown, PA, PennsylvaniaApril 24, 2017
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: Jade Tenberg, DVM"Dr Jade was incredibly caring and compassionate with both my dog Max and me. It was clear that Max instantly felt comfortable with Jade, as he kissed her as soon as she came in. She was patient with my tears, loving to Max, and made the experience, while painful, easier than it could be. While I am still in tears and missing my boy (which I know will last for quite some time), if I have to help a future pet pass, I will only do it with Jade, or another doctor from Lap of Love."Rebecca ArmacostSt Petersburg, FloridaApril 24, 2017Max's Pet Memorial
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Carrie Roberts, DVM"Dr. Carrie was wonderful when we had to let our sweet Gracie cross over the rainbow bridge. She is very caring and compassionate and she took the time to explain everything that she was doing and what we should expect the effect to have been on our dog. Gracie remained very calm throughout the entire procedure and Dr. Carrie took her time wither and us so we felt at ease as well. The kind folks at Lap of Love are certainly the best that we know of for these difficult times. I remain grateful that Gracie's last moments were easy for her. That gives me and my family great comfort."Dave MalekSaint Louis, MissouriApril 24, 2017
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Kendra L. Healy, DVM"Dr. Kendra was wonderful during this very difficult time. Her care and patience with us and our sweet Maggie made things a bit more bearable. Dr. Kendra has a very calming quality that helped us all cope. The care and love she extended to our Maggie was noticed and greatly appreciated. Being able to spend this time at home instead of the vet's office was very important to us."Will BuntinLexington, KentuckyApril 24, 2017
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Amanda Esposito, DVM"I was so thankful that Dr. Amanda was able to make Meisha's
transition easier for me to bear. She was a lovely young woman
and showed real compassion for my family and Meisha. The one
thing that Amanda said to me was the one thing I needed to hear,
"I'll take care of her as if she was my baby". I will always be
grateful for those words. I don't know if I thanked her properly
but my heart thanks her."

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Shannon Skevakis, DVM"Dr. Shannon M. Skevakis helped me with my cat Smokey in July 2016, and again on April 10, 2017. She was prompt, informative, and most important, she was sympathetic and warm. Both of my cats were put to sleep with no issues, and she tried to distract us from being upset by making friendly small talk. Dr. Shannon provided us with paw impressions and a sample of fur for us to remember our kitties by. The service couldn't be any better during such a difficult time."Erica DuranPerth Amboy, New JerseyApril 24, 2017

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Courtney Brookens Graham, DVM"Courtney was very kind and caring. We struggled to let him go, but knew his quality of life was declining.

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Jade Tenberg, DVM"I can't say enough about Dr. Jade. What a special person she is!
Six of my friends were with me and have all stated how professional, compassionate and educational she was to us.
She has even followed up with an email to me!

That staff was also awesome and comforting, while gathering all of the information they needed. I was recommended to Lap of Love and am so impressed, that I will always recommend them to others!"

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Annie Dion-Byrd, DVM"Dr. Annie was so patient with us and our last moments with Butterscotch. She allowed him to be relaxed and loved during this time.

We thank you, all, for your gift."Casselberry, FloridaApril 23, 2017Butterscotch's Pet Memorial

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Erin Deveau, DVM"Dr. Erin, from Lap of Love was an angel to be here and assist with one of life's most difficult tasks. She soften the experience with her compassionate demeanor and for that I thank her for the loving way she made Oliver's passing a gentle and peaceful transition.
It's hard to imagine him not being physically here with me, but I know his spirit will always be by my side.
He was my "Big Red" the most gentle and loving companion I've ever known. I truly feel blessed and grateful to have had him for 12 years."

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Erin Coello, DVM"From the moment that Dr. Erin walked in our front door I felt a sense of calm. Her compassionate spirit was a god send for me, my husband, and Apache. She let us know how the procedure would occur and Apache greeted her as he does everyone with a wagging tail. Thank you "Lap of Love" for sending Dr. Erin to us and helping Apache's struggle to end peacefully.
Sincerely, Colleen Surman"

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Erin Deveau, DVM"I couldn't imagine any veterinarian selecting to focus their practice specifically on pet hospice/euthanasia (just because it would be so sad!), but after meeting Dr. Erin, it became quite clear that her compassionate spirit and calm demeanor are perfectly suited for the work she's chosen. She was incredibly thoughtful and kind, thoroughly explained the entire process, and was so gentle with my sweet little creature. I would highly recommend Dr. Erin to any family faced with saying goodbye to their beloved friends."Shawna CoryAlbuquerque, New MexicoApril 23, 2017
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Annie Dion-Byrd, DVM"Max was abandoned in my mother and fathers neighborhood 12 years ago and fortunately found his way to their doorstep. Max guarded his family with all his heart , yet was gentle enough to welcome family members pets into the home. Thank you Dr. Annie for making it possible for Max to pass with dignity, respect and without fear in his own home. You allowed this process to be bearable for my mother. We know that Max has been met at the Rainbow Bridge by our other beloved pets and is now painfree and joyful.

Thank You again for your caring and kindness."
