Lap of Love Veterinarian: Shannon Cabell"This was our second experience with Lap of Love and Dr. Cabell. Dr. Cabell was extremely understanding, compassionate, helpful and so empathetic through one of the hardest times in our lives. Our precious Millie was our beautiful baby, she brought joy to our world every day! It absolutely killed us to have to make the choice of sending her to the heavens above. Her last hour was soft, serene, peaceful and filled with so much love. Dr. Cabell made Millie so comfortable throughout her passing, she simply fell fast asleep with no struggle.
I am truly grateful to this selfless service of Lap of Love."

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Liz Myers"I cannot recommend this service and Dr. Liz highly enough. The end-of-life decision for our Tess was heartbreaking, but knowing that she could be in her own home, on her couch, and wrapped in her blanket brought us some peace. From the very beginning of the process right through to the end, Dr. Liz was so respectful to our Tess and to our feelings. This happened during the COVID crisis, and Dr. Liz wore a mask and gloves and maintained as much distance as possible. We so appreciated her efforts in this regard. She called 15 minutes before arriving to let us know she was on her way. She explained every step as she progressed and gave us any time that we needed. In the end, Tess was lovingly placed in a wicker basket and my husband was allowed to carry Tess to Dr. Liz's vehicle. If you are trying to decide if using this service is the right decision, let me assure you that it is. In the future, we will always call Lap of Love. Thank you, Dr. Liz!"Dawn FitzgeraldGrand IslandMay 30, 2020

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Jennifer Bell"We recently had to say goodbye to our beloved yellow lab, Goose. It is truly one of the most difficult things to have to do as a pet owner. Goose was absolutely terrified of going to the vet so I knew when the time came, I did not want him to spend his last moments on this earth in fear. When we heard about Lap of Love, we knew they were our answer. Dr. Jennifer came to our home and was so kind, compassionate and gentle. I am so thankful and feel so blessed that we had Dr. Jennifer by our side during such a difficult time. She made sure our sweet boy had the dignity he deserved and made his end of life transition as peaceful as it could have been. We will forever be grateful to Dr. Jennifer and the services provided by Lap of Love."Christy PColumbusMay 30, 2020
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Jennifer Bell"Dr. Jennifer was so gentle and kind to Duke. Duke was 16 and very frail. Duke passed peacefully in his home with his family and Dr. Jennifer by his side. We can’t thank you enough for your compassion on Duke’s last day."ColumbusMay 30, 2020Duke's Pet Memorial
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Rachel Klickman"I cannot express enough how much I appreciate the care and support Lizy and I received from Dr. Rachel and Cecilia. In writing about Lizy I am at a loss for words and this is no different right now, but I still want to express how much easier this was because of Dr. Rachel. She went so peacefully with her loved ones around her. This feels like the worst loss I have ever had and yet oddly it was the best experience with letting one of my babies go. Thank you for helping me. I didn’t know how I was going to do it. Thank you for making her as comfortable as possible both in the months leading up to her death to the last day.

Thank you. Thank you."

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Lisa Rodin"Dr. Lisa,

We have been processing our grief, but we have spoken so fondly of you over the last few weeks. My fiance & I want you to know how thankful we are for your services on 4/29. We feel you were an angel. It meant so much to do the procedure at home. We know it was the best for Luther, as well. He was with us in those final days & hours. He never left his bed and we never left his side. We know he never felt abandoned. We cannot thank you enough for your service, especially during the pandemic.

We will always remember your gentleness with Our beloved Luther. You were so very considerate and it truly touched my heart.

I also wanted to thank you for your hand-written note and card. It was so thoughtful and it brought me such comfort. Thank you for recognizing how important and special Luther was to us.

Thank you for your kind and gentle soul, Dr. Lisa. You are so greatly appreciated. I do not have enough words to thank you for making this transition so loving and gentle, for Luther and for us.

Luther was a loyal and delightful companion. He was also rather handsome. The love we had for him will remain in our hearts always.

Much gratitude"

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Jennifer Walters"We cannot thank Dr. Walters enough for giving her time and love to our fur baby Teent-z and us during this time. she was beyond professional and we could feel the love she had and see the compassion for our beloved. I would recommend her to anyone facing such a difficult time and she this experience with them. she allowed our Fur baby to be in her own home surrounded by the love of family, I could have asked for anything better."katrina cymbalistyconcordMay 29, 2020Teent-z's Pet Memorial
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Casandra Huelin"Dr. Cassi was fantastic, kind, calm, and very professional in helping us with Finn's final moments. This service really provided me with piece of mind during a very difficult time. I ended up having to have Dr. Cassi come 2 days earlier then anticipated and the whole staff was very accommodating and very kind during a very emotional time. Lap of Love was amazing and I am truly lucky that this service was available for my good boy during these already difficult times."Alicia Duprey-GatrellSalt Lake CityMay 29, 2020
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Rachel Klickman"I couldn't have asked for anyone better to help me through this process. She gave me time, explained everything, and was so gentle with Sammi."Cathy FlandersCroftonMay 29, 2020Sammi's Pet Memorial
Lap of Love Veterinarian: George Croskey"Dr. George is so compassionate and respectful and made this very difficult situation bareable. We were kindly talked through how the procedure would take place and at no time were made to feel rushed. Dr. George patiently listened to every story about our Tristan from the time we got him until what brought us to this point. That kind act helped us so much in saying good bye and knowing we did the right thing. We highly recommend Dr. George and Lap of Love for anyone facing this difficult decision for their fur babies.

Most Sincerely,
Matt and Cheryl"

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Kristine Campanelli"Dr. Kristine was so caring and compassionate. She made sure our little Juliet passed peacefully and assured me that we were doing the right thing for her. Here it is the next day and while I'm sad and miss her (I expect to see her in all her favorite places), I am relieved that she is no longer suffering. I am grateful that this service is available. In this uncertain time, if I had to bring Juliet to the vet and not be able to accompany her, I would have been devastated. As difficult as it was, I'm grateful she passed on my lap on her favorite blanket. Thank you, Dr. Kristine."Liz HonigWest BabylonMay 29, 2020
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Brad Bates"We had to say Goodbye to our sweet little girl on May20, 2020. Black Cat shared in our lives for 17 years (I sometimes thought that she felt she owned us). Justine was very patient with me on the phone as I attempted to tell her what was needed. Dr. Brad was very comforting and after examining our little Black Cat respectfully agreed with our decision. Dr. Brad did not rush us and explained everything before he did anything. He was very respectful. What an exceptional person to help us particularly at this time. Thank you does seem enough for what he did for us and Black Cat.
Black Cat is missed but I do believe she did not suffer before she passed and that is comforting."

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Kali Jimenez"Absolutely amazing service, highly recommend. I cannot praise them enough. I cannot express how wonderful Dr. Kali was when it was time to let our baby boy Boomer pass. From beginning to end Lap of Love was caring, loving, professional, understanding, empathetic, considerate, kindhearted, and sympathetic. This was the toughest time and they were all so kind.

I am so glad we decided to go with this service instead of leaving our baby boy at the vet. We had to call them earlier than they were scheduled, and they came out early to accommodate us in our difficult time. Dr. Kali was the sweetest, nicest person and took great care of our Boomer. For such a horrible time, it could not have gone any better. She even took Boomers paw print and hair clipping for a keepsake. Then we had him cremated and we received him in a beautiful wooden box with his name on a plaque.

This service is such a blessing to have when you are going through such a difficult time. I cannot praise them enough and would give them 10 stars if I could. Thank you to Lap of Love St Augustine for truly caring about your beloved patients and taking such great care of them."

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Mary Devlin"We lost our beloved dog Chip on 1/1/2020. He was a 12 yr old Husky/Lab mix who made me a dog lover. His illness was sudden, unexpected and we were in shock with the news. Dr Devlin came to our home on New Years Day to make his death a beautiful experience for our family. Her kindness and compassion were incredible. She didn't rush the process or us. She allowed us all the time we needed to say goodbye and get through this horrific day. She kept us informed every step of the way and I know for certain that he was comfortable and in our arms when he breathed his last breath. It was beautiful. Words cannot express the gratitude I feel for this person who helped our family. She is an angel and I will be forever grateful to her. Thank you Dr Devlin."Michelle LaveryBillericaMay 29, 2020
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Lisa Rodin"Dr. Lisa Rodin was professional and compassionate. She didn't judge. As a pet owner, you know your pet isn't getting better, they're only getting worse. You want to keep them as long as possible even though it's for selfish reasons."Matthew WeberOklahoma CityMay 28, 2020Roosevelt The Doodle's Pet Memorial

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Elizabeth Merchant"Dr. Lyza (Elizabeth) assisted us twice now. I requested her when we realized it was time to put our beloved pup down.

Thank you to both Dr. Lyza and Lap of Love for your services. It means so much."Robin AmesValricoMay 28, 2020Teo's Pet Memorial
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Jeni Goedken"To Dr. Jeni - thank you so much for your kind words and for walking us through an impossible experience. We are enormously grateful for your patience, kindness, and consultation. We are forever indebted to you for making Whiskey's last moments calm and peaceful, in the comforts of her home, surrounded by her people. It's all we ever wanted for her, and we could not have done it without you."Sushi KrishnanSan JoseMay 28, 2020
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Kristine Campanelli"My husband and I cannot say enough good things about our experience with Lap of Love and Dr. Kristine. We received nothing but compassion, grace, and kindness from the minute we made the phone call through the days after we said goodbye to our beloved greyhound Camo. While it was one of the most difficult experiences for us, we know that Camo felt safe and loved during the transition because he was home with his family, in his "spot". While its something no pet owner wants to think about, we would recommend Laps of Love a million times over to everyone when it comes time to say goodbye to their furry family members."Kate HaughieWantaghMay 28, 2020
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Jeni Goedken"Dear Dr. Jeni...... I’m brokenhearted.

But...
I never would have believed that Maisie’s death could be a really beautiful experience, and for that I thank you from the bottom of my heart. If only we all could go in such a way.

We all go into this knowing that this will happen, but it’s still tough. Thank you for making it more bearable — you made such a difference, and I appreciate it more than I can say. Thank you, thank you, thank you."
