Lap of Love Veterinarian: Kristen Miller"It's been 2 weeks since I've lost one of the best friends I've ever had. My big, black, lovable cat was suffering from some type of neurological disorder or stroke . I found him on the laundry room floor, trying to get up but was unable to do so. It looked like he had suddenly gone blind as well. It was a Sunday afternoon and I was desperate to get him some help but didn't want to upset him further by moving him. I called a vet's office to see if they would make a house call. They couldn't come but suggested I call Lap of Love. I am so thankful they did. The kind person who answered the phone assured me they would find a doctor to come to our home as soon as possible. A short time later, Dr. Kristen arrived, introduced herself and asked to see Giglio. She got right down on the floor with me and my boy and tended to him with such gentleness and compassion, I couldn't help but feel a sense of relief. She answered my questions and gave me the time I needed to say goodbye to my friend. He left this world in peace and with dignity because of the kindness and good work of Dr. Kristen. I will always be thankful for this angel on earth :-)"Geri DIsland ParkDecember 10, 2019
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Jenn Roedig"Jenn was amazing! She was so patient with us and gave us the time we needed, allowing us to say our goodbyes how we needed to. She provided me comfort in knowing that my sweet girl passed without any pain. Thank you Jenn for providing this option for our pet children!"Shannon DavisWest Chester TownshipDecember 9, 2019Lady's Pet Memorial
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Kiley Cameron"There are not enough good words I can say about Dr Cameron. She made an already extremely horrible day that much more bearable. Unfortunately our cat was really struggling the past few days but having Dr Cameron come into our home was the best thing we could have asked for. She did a wonderful job at explaining everything and giving us plenty of time during the process. We didn’t once feel pushed or rushed into anything. Her kind words and compassionate nature made us know we had made the right decision for our kitten. I can not recommend her enough. Thank you for all that you do and for being with us at our hardest time."Bilal Al-HamedRichmondDecember 9, 2019
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Heather Manfredi"After agonizing if this was the right time to make the decision to send our beloved dogs on their final journey, it seemed so clear that it had to take place at home. Our 14-year-old Labradors were brother and sister, Diego and Frida were the kindest dogs we have had. They were loved and enjoyed by our children and grandchildren and my husband and I. The dogs were on their favorite beds in the kitchen when Dr. Heather arrived. She was compassionate, loving and professional. She was instrumental in making this transition into a loving and caring experience for all of us. We realized how lucky we were to have this opportunity to allow our labs to go on with dignity, without any pain. They quietly fell asleep before they passed. Tucked into their blankets, they still looked beautiful and at peace. Dr. Heather could not have been more caring and kind. We all felt incredibly sad but so thankful for Lap of Love. What a great service. Thank you so very much ."Philippine BoschLloyd HarborDecember 9, 2019
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Christina Hampton"I have not had great experiences in the past at vet offices with other pets and I did not want my dog to pass in a hospital or at the vet. Unfortunately this happened the day before Thanksgiving. It was by far the most kind, caring, compassionate and peaceful experience. Dr. Christina couldn't have been nicer. My sweet girl was sleeping in my arms, she took the time to wait and be sure the sedative was fully working and I was ready. After the 2nd shot I knew my girl was gone b/c her snoring stopped. As horrible as it is to lose your heart dog, its a gift you can give them for it to be peaceful and I would never do it with anyone other than Lap of Love again."Heather DonovanHolly SpringsDecember 9, 2019Hailey Belle's Pet Memorial

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Daniel Genatiempo"I had to make the hardest decision of my life this past Sunday. It was time to say goodbye to Piper, my most loyal friend of 15 wonderful years. I made the appointment with Lab of Love and Dr. Dan arrived at my home at 9 in the morning. His bed side manner was so caring and gentle. He was so patient with me as I said good by to my best friend. I can not express the gratitude that I have for this service and especially Dr. Dan Genatiempo."Justin RIndianapolisDecember 9, 2019
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Sarah Tangeman"I could not have asked for a more beautiful and perfect way to say goodbye to the most incredible dog to ever walk this planet. My Harley girl spent the last 15yrs being the best friend I could have ever hoped for. She helped me raise 3 beautiful children, spent countless hours dutifully scouting the house for lost crumbs, and never tired of playing games with us. She didn't have much time to be snuggled or cuddled because there were too many crumbs to find and balls to catch but a good scratch on the booty or behind the ears was always welcomed. She LOVED playing tag and soccer with the family and because she was the fastest thing on 4 legs the kids were always tagged out or had the soccer ball snatched right out from under their feet. I am so thankful to have found Lap of Love. My best friend crossed the rainbow bridge with the sun shining down on her , in her own backyard, with the birds chirping and the squirrels perched on the fence. It felt like I had known Dr. Sara Tangerman for ages and I am so thankful to have had her there by my side supporting me through one of the hardest moments of my life. What a gift this company and these amazing vets give. Thank you Lap or Love and Thank you Dr. Sara."Melinda PayneFORT WORTHDecember 9, 2019
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Rachel Klickman"It's never easy making the decision to finally let your pet go, but the Lap of Love vet, Dr. Rachael Klickman, made the entire situation a little more bearable. We were never rushed through any part of the procedure. Dr. Klickman thoroughly explained everything she was going to do, possibilities of any complications and what she'd have to do, and what Murphy would be feeling. I don't believe we could have had a more caring and empathetic person to help us through one of the most difficult times in our lives. RIP sweet Murphy. We love you."Cary HendrixCroftonDecember 9, 2019
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Nil Wilkins"Once again, Laps of Love and in particular, Dr. Nil Wilkins made my Hope's passing as peaceful as something like this can be. I will always be grateful for her compassion and care. Thank you Dr. Nil."Heather MacLellanTampaDecember 9, 2019Hope's Pet Memorial
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Amy Czarnecki"Tonight was one of the hardest nights of my family’s lives. Dave was our world and when we found out that he was sick, we were so worried about the way he would go. With each day, his condition worsen and that choice had to be made. None of us wanted him to be taken from his home to be able to pass, we wanted him home surrounded by family. Lap of Love was able to give us that x10. Dr. Amy was immediately so sweet and very thoughtful of Dave as well as everyone there during the entire process. With each story we brought up about Dave, she took each little bit of his personality spoken about and tailored the service to him. She was mindful of his dignity and what he would want throughout the appointment and I am eternally grateful for that. Dave was unique and so special to me and my family and it really meant everything for her to take everything we talked about into consideration. I would recommend this service to anyone having to make this hard decision. I am so beyond grateful for this experience. Thank you so much for taking care of my baby. ❤️"Morgan WalkerMorristownDecember 9, 2019
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Kali Jimenez"We were blessed to have Dr. Kali help us say good-bye to our Maisy. Maisy seemed to know Dr. Kali had come to help her. Dr. Kali came into our home spoke to Maisy and started petting her. It was strange to see this as Maisy had been senile for many months and did not want to be touched. The comfort and compassion Dr. Kali offered was touching and helpful to us in our time of pain as we were saying good-bye to our beloved friend and pet. Every aspect of Maisy's passing was done with dignity. I will always use Laps of Love in the future when it comes time to say good-bye to our other furry family members, and I hope Dr. Kali will be there for us then. Thank you Dr. Kali."Sherry TindallPalatkaDecember 9, 2019
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Lisa Rodin"What a blessing it was to have the opportunity to bring Laps of Love into our home and offer the care he deserved. Dr. Lisa Rodin could not have been anymore compassionate during a very difficult day. Her follow up in email as well as a handwritten card was a level of service beyond our expectations. Thank you Lisa from the bottom of our hearts."Scott & Terri LindellEdmondDecember 8, 2019Dusty's Pet Memorial

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Daniel Genatiempo"Dr. Dan from Lap of Love Indianapolis was very professional and compassionate. This was so incredibly difficult for my husband and I and Dr. Dan was patient and explained everything. He listened to our stories and handled our fur baby with care. We wouldn't have changed a thing about how the process went. Raiden was at home on his bed with family to comfort him. Due to his size and the complications with his cancer transporting him to a vet would be very difficult for him. I am so grateful for Lap of Love and their services."Cheryl TerranovaEast AmherstDecember 8, 2019Raiden's Pet Memorial

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Anna Champagne"Dr Anna Champagne was an angel sent to ease the pain of not only our beloved Miss Clipper but of our whole family. Dr. Anna has the most caring soul and was able to immediately help us be at peace with the heartbreaking decision to let our Clipper go. Thank you so much for being you. When the time comes for our other fur baby to leave us, we will not hesitate to call Lap of Love again. Our hearts are broken, but great memories fill our hearts."Carmen, Richard and Snickers LavreyTierra VerdeDecember 8, 2019
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Jessica Spitzer"We are so thankful the timing worked out for Dr. Spitzer to come to our home. Our precious kitty got to spend her final moments in one of her favorite spots surrounded by love. She got the kind of send-off that any creature, human or otherwise, would want. I think it was easier and less confusing for our other kitty to have her feline companion pass at home. Dr. Spitzer was considerate and respectful. She seemed genuinely curious to learn more about our kitty and talked us all through the whole process. Lap of Love and Dr. Spitzer helped make a sad experience as beautiful and comforting as possible. Thanks again."Donna Lynn CaskeyVenturaDecember 8, 2019Maggie's Pet Memorial
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Sarah Tangeman"Dr. Tangeman was an amazing gift to us during this process. She couldn't have been more understanding, calm, thoughtful, and professional. She gave us the time and space we needed. We had our lingering doubts about the decision, but now, we know that we sent our boy off the best way we could. It was the most peaceful hour with our boy. No regrets in our decision. Texas is very lucky to have Dr. Tangeman."Jennifer MurphyCoppellDecember 8, 2019Tigger's Pet Memorial
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Allison Bergin"We are very grateful to Lap of Love and to Dr. Allison for transitioning Hunter to the Rainbow Bridge in the comfort of our home in Hunter's favorite spot on the couch next to his Mama.

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Sarah Tangeman"I am also so Thankful that I met Dr Sarah Tangeman and she was the right person to be there with us to help say goodbye to George.
I felt that she understood what an important life partner & family member George was to all of us and how valuable his life was to us. She also sent me a wonderful follow up letter to check in.
Thank you Dr Sarah for bringing all of your knowledge and kindness and compassion with you and sharing it with us.

The info that you left behind was also really helpful.
Thank you for being an Angel on earth - and doing such important work."

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Melanie Santspree"Tucker loved being outdoors more than anything. Lap of Love provided us with the opportunity to say good bye to our darling doggy in the freedom of the outdoors in his favorite field, and next to his favorite walking path into the woods. Lap of Love truly understood our desire to allow our dog every last moment where he wanted to be, surrounded by love."Samantha FullertonArgyleDecember 7, 2019Tucker D. Barton Fullerton's Pet Memorial
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Mandi Beckmann"Dr. Mandi is incredibly kind, professional and empathetic. It was such a relief to have this emotional experience take place in the comfort and privacy of home without distressing my 17-year-old cat with a car ride to the vet's office.

It gave me great peace to be able to quickly schedule the appointment with a very kind gentleman who called within minutes of my email. I had a final day to pamper and love on Squeaky, so when the time came, Dr. Mandi and I comforted him in his favorite napping spot. Instead of bright lights, unfamiliar scents and a scary IV like at the vet, Squeaky received the first injection painlessly in his scruff to calm him for a few minutes as we said our sweet goodbyes.

With the final injection, it was over quickly and peacefully. It was certainly death with dignity for a big, macho cat who spent his younger years mouse-hunting on a farm and his final year luxuriating in the sunny gardens at the "Jenelle Hotel" with four other kitty siblings and a handful of neighbor cats, dogs and loving children to pet him.

Her neat bag of tools with everything from tissues, potty pad, and pamphlets to clay for a keepsake footprint were ingenious. Her sweet emails and a handwritten card over the past week have been beyond expectation to provide comfort during this grieving period.

Dr. Mandi is a true angel and I have been spreading the word about Lap of Love to everyone with aging and ailing pets. May we all be so lucky to have our beloved pets to go like this!"
