Lap of Love Veterinarian: Elizabeth Gill, DVM"Dr. Elizabeth was the gentlest, kindest, most understanding of my grief I have ever met. She took time to explain as we went and even sat on the ground with Sam and I as he passed, stroking his head and talking softly. I hope I do not need her services again, but if I ever do, she will be the first I call to assist with this delicate job. The follow up email and information on retrieving my loved one was very touching and much appreciated."Charlene PartinSt. Cloud, FloridaJune 17, 2019Sam's Pet Memorial
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Katie Stender, DVM"It feels odd to say we were lucky to have Dr. Katie seeing as how we were going through the heartbreaking decision to put our beloved dog down, but we know we truly were. The moment we met and she saw Dick Dastardly, you could see in her eyes how much she cared and how she recognized his pain and situation. She could not have been more patient, kind, or compassionate. I lost it and was crying right away as I was going through denial and guilt. She professional and medically answered all my questions to help me understand and continue down my journey in grieving. I honestly think her medical experience and evaluation of our boy's condition is what has helped me get through the process and week so far. You can feel her love for animals, she does this to help those poor animals who need to pass but with dignity and peacefully. She spoke to and touched our dog as if she had loved him for years and I will never forget that. Her kindness and compassion towards Bill and I was truly outstanding. What truly blew us away was the email a couple days later. We were thinking since everything was paid for, done, complete, that would be it. But the fact that she reached out, offered any help, an ear to cry to, it just was amazing and unexpected. I wish I could stop crying enough to tell her in person/over the phone what a wonderful person she is with how she helps our animals and us while going through the process. Lap of Love has an amazing Vet and human being with Dr. Katie. She is one of a kind. Thank you for everything Katie. Thank you for loving and caring for Dick Dastardly like he was your own."Christina MeierJacksonville, FloridaJune 17, 2019Dick Dastardly's Pet Memorial

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Rachel Burns, DVM"On June 14, 2019 I said goodbye to my 6 year old Big Handsome Fella Marley, aka Big Kitty, my tuxedo boy.
His health had declined rapidly in a 2 week period and exactly 2 weeks after our first ER visit I said goodbye.
Dr.Rachel came out and Kitty immediately took to her which comforted me.
She made it clear that everything was on my terms, everything would be done when I was ready.
At 1:04 PM on June 14, 2019 he took his final breath in my arms as I sat on the bed.that he slept on every night with me.
The only ones in the room were me, Dr.Rachel, Marley and Maxwell. the little orange tabby that Marley raised from 6 weeks. He is now 2yrs.
It was a beautiful, intimate and personal passing. Dr. Rachel is an angel and I will forever be thankful to her and Lap of Love for making what is one of the most horrible, heartbreaking choices we ever have to make into a beautiful, loving experience."

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Toby Goldman, DVM"I was referred to Lap of Love when my dog Riley was losing his battle with lymphoma. I spoke with Lisa on the phone and from her voice and kind words, she was perfect. All was arranged and Dr. Toby arrived on time and was so empathetic to what we were going through. This was a kind, humane and stress free process that made Riley's passing so easy and gentle."Kelly Blakesleelas vegas, NevadaJune 16, 2019
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Keri Morgan, DVM, MPH"The day before Dr. Morgan came over to help us free Jack, he was unable to stand on his own or bare weight on his back legs. I knew in my mind it was time; but my heart was really struggling with whether or not I could let my best buddy go.
I adopted Jack when he was 8 weeks old, while I was away at college. I was living in a town where I had no family, and didn't know anyone too well yet. Jack was a great comfort. He got me through eight years of schooling(undergrad and grad school), boards, marriage, and even child birth/rearing. Saying goodbye to him was heart breaking - even that is an understatement.

Dr. Morgan's advice and counseling helped me feel at peace with our family's decision. She was so compassionate, and so understanding in this very difficult time. Her personality made it seem like we'd known her for years - like she had been Jack's vet all along. It was clear she deeply cared about his and our family's comfort. She was so patient while we said our goodbyes, and read him a book (Dog Heaven). She also advised us on how to help our other dog, make peace with the transition.

I can't recommend Dr. Morgan enough. We will absolutely be calling her again when it's Lilly's time.
Thank you Dr. Morgan, we are forever grateful for your care and compassion!.

Most Sincerely,

The Goodmans"

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Kim Slade, DVM"Dr. Kim was an absolute blessing to my family and I in a very sad time.

Dr. Kim was more than professional- - she was genuinely caring, sympathetic, and loving. I had never met Dr. Kim before but she made me, and my Grizzly, feel extremely comfortable. Dr. Kim took the time to speak to me beforehand and asked specifically what I wanted and how I wanted things to happen. Dr. Kim gave me honesty and compassion, which helped so much that day.

I know Dr. Kim let Grizzly go in the most gentle way possible, ensuring he was comfortable and as happy as possible. I take great comfort in the manner in which Dr. Kim worked.

I can't speak highly enough of Dr. Kim and am extremely grateful for her."

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Toby Goldman, DVM"As it was clear that my Dog, Frankie's time had come, I inquired at my Vet about end of life services at home and they gave me your number. The woman on the phone seemed very compassionate and made an appointment for the next morning, Dr. Toby came over and understood the pain we were feeling and was kind and patient as he guided us through the process. I want to thank all of you and I cannot express my gratitude for your service. Allowing Frankie to die at home, literally in my lap, in a humane manner is something I will never forget and always be thankful for. Thank You"Donald BarlowLas Vegas, NevadaJune 15, 2019

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Mary Kovach, DVM"Thank you Dr Mary for helping put Scooby to rest. I so much appreciate the reassurance you provided that it was indeed the right thing to do for him. Dr Mary, you guided and handled the experience in a loving and peaceful way. It was quite a rainstorm that morning and, perhaps coincidentally, there was a very loud clap of thunder at the exact moment Scooby left us. I will always smile thinking about all the ornery things Scooby would do and it's perfect that he left with such a bang! We love you Scooby and we will sure miss your nose to our nose rubs!"Janelle GilbertCarmel, IndianaJune 15, 2019

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Roger Chase, DVM"I would like to thank Dr. Roger Chase for helping me through one of the hardest and scariest moments in my life!!!! I felt like a horrible person for making this decision... my pup had glaucoma disease and was fully blind. The vet we take her to wanted to surgically remove both of her eyes because the disease was so bad and she was in a lot of pain... Dr. Chase made me feel so much better about the decision that I made... my Princess Buttercup was no longer in any pain plus Dr. Chase believed that she most likely had cancer as well. Thank you for helping me through such a tough moment..."Jennifer RodriguezWest Jordan, UtahJune 15, 2019Princess Buttercup's Pet Memorial
