Though we are missing our boy, we know that he was happy on his favorite couch, surrounded by his loving family. I can’t imagine having done this any other way.

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Rachel Burns, DVM"Sincerely grateful for Dr. Rachel and her bedside manner on our very sad day. From affirming our agonizing decision that "it was time," to her care and concern for the humans in the house, I don't have adequate words to express how pleased we were with the entire process.
We would absolutely recommend home euthanasia to any pet owner contemplating end of life decisions for their pets."

The procedure went as explained to us and Merlin was finally at peace and rest! Merlin took a large piece of our hearts with him, our tears and pain will pass, but memories will not.

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Kim Slade, DVM"Dr. Kim expressed true compassion & sympathy from the moment she arrived at my door. Her hugs deserve an award.

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Keri Morgan, DVM, MPH"We recently realized that our 15-year-old shepherd-mix, Roxy, was at the end of her life. She collapsed outdoors and could not get up. Carrying her into the house was stressful for her, and difficult for us. Our vet’s office suggested that we call Lap of Love. We called and made an appointment for the next day. Dr. Keri Morgan confirmed our assessment, and provided compassionate care to Roxy. She thoroughly explained the euthanasia procedure and described the options for cremation. She gave us time alone with Roxy and encouraged us to talk about her. It was a helpful part of the grief process. Roxy was able to stay in her home, on her own bed with her people. Thank you. Dr. Morgan."Karen EverhartWildwood, MissouriFebruary 14, 2019
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Toby Goldman, DVM"Dr. Toby was very compassionate and respectful during the very difficult time of saying goodbye for the last time to my special angel.

Noah was truly at peace and I am so grateful that Dr. Toby helped make this difficult process go as smoothly as possible."

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Kendra Healy, DVM"I loved my kitty Pink so very much. I'm sure if you're here reading this you also have a special loved one that you've recently lost or are preparing for their passing. It's a hard time. I have no words to describe the hole it leaves in your heart. Dr. Kendra responded quickly to my need to guide Pink out as he became ill and deteriorated fast. She was able to see me within just a few short hours of my call. Her love for animals and their owners is apparent in her gentle caring words and actions. It is also there in how she follows up in those dark days immediately following to make sure you are ok, and to let you know your feelings are real and to be acknowledged. I am so grateful she was the one to guide my beautiful boy out of this world. I still wonder how I'm going to get by without him, but I will. And it helps to know that if I do need someone understanding to talk to, Dr. Kendra will be here for me."Roxan WaldenWinchester, KentuckyFebruary 14, 2019
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Will Basinger, DVM"Dr. Will made this process as painless as possible both for our beloved hound Blueberry and for us. We knew that Dr. Will was a good person when Beauregard (one of our other hounds) gave Dr. Will lots of "Beau Love". Beau doesn't make friends easily but he took a liking to Dr. Will immediately.

Thank You Dr. Will."

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Katie Gies, DVM"Lap of Love was just what our Rudy and family needed. We were not ready to say good-bye to Rudy and we felt like he was not ready either. Dr. Katie came to our house and spoke to us for about 2 hours. She is so kind and held our hands through the last months of our wonderful Rudy's life. She was also available through email with any questions and to help us through managing Rudy's conditions. When it was time for the very difficult discussion, she was very supportive and helped us through the last breath. As you can imagine this was a very difficult time for my family. Rudy was part of our family and my kids grew up with him. We now have a beautiful urn and a shadow box in the family room. He will always be remembered and loved. Thank you, Dr. Katie for all your wonderful help through this difficult time."Sandy RascheBlythewood, S. CarolinaFebruary 14, 2019

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Jessica Boden, DVM"I didn't know when I would have to tell Sam goodbye but I knew I wanted it to be at our home surrounded by love and peace. The day before she stopped eating completely so I started look for a service. Lap of Love called me within 15 minutes of the inquiry. I did not schedule at the that time because I was hoping for a miracle overnight. It didn't come, Sam could not even stand up on her own that morning. I called to schedule an appointment as soon as she could get here. She got her early for Sam even with a tire blowout on the way. We waited and sat with Sam the entire time in our bedroom. When the sun came out and it warmed a little, we decided to take her into our backyard. Dr. Boden arrived with a few minutes. She was very professional as one would have to be in this profession but we never felt rushed or like it was just her job. She suggested things like getting a paw-print and a lock of hair which we were too upset to think of. She advised that we were making the right decision for Sam. I have lost many animals in life as well as my mother and father. None of them hurt or brought the level of sadness and emotion that I had when we said goodbye. She gave us all the time we needed and then carried Sam to her car and placed her in the front seat. Regardless of good or bad the procedure went what Dr. Boden did next will live in my heart, mind and soul forever. My entire family hurt at the level we expected but I held nothing inside. Before leaving, Dr. Boden hugged me. I cried beyond control an squeezed tighter. Her response was to squeeze back tighter and she never released until did. That moment will last in my memories and gratitude for Dr. Jessica for the rest of my life."John TerrellIrving, TexasFebruary 14, 2019Sam's Pet Memorial
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Allison Bergin, DVM"Dr. Allison was so wonderful. She was so comforting and reassuring in the tough decision we had to make. She explained everything compassionately. She took gentle care of taking our precious pup away after she passed. I would highly recommend. I hope that I do not need to do this anytime soon, but if I do, I will definitely call again, and will refer to others in need.

Thank you for your compassion."
