Lap of Love Veterinarian: Brad Bates, VMD"I called Lap of Love when I knew my beloved Charlotte was in great pain . I was very unsure of my choice as I did not know any of the doctors or how they would be with my big girl. My fears were unfounded. From my first phone call to schedule my appointment I was treated with compassion and immediately knew I made the right call. When Dr. Brad came to help my Charlotte he was kind and thoughtful, he let me know each step he was taking to insure her passing was peaceful. She will be returned to me from their crematorium in a beautiful urn. Lap of Love made one of the hardest decisions of my life into a beautiful passing and I knew she was at peace and pain free when she passed. Thank you Dr. Brad and the staff at Lap of Love. You are all in my prayers and your care was simply the best."Penny CorbyCoatesville, PennsylvaniaDecember 18, 2018

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Kim Bruce, DVM, CVA"We suddenly had to deal with the passing of our sweet 14yr old Viszla, Ellie. Upon calling around to a few in-home end of life caretakers, we had decided to work with Dr. Kim Bruce. She rushed over as soon as she could to ease our sweet girl out of pain. Her compassion for an animal she has never met in her life will stick with me forever. My husband and I appreciated her walking us through her process and how Ellie would be peacefully sent over the Rainbow Bridge. She allowed us to take all the time we needed and treated us along with our beloved Ellie with the utmost respect. We will always have dogs in our lives. This is the best most humane way to say goodbye to your ailing furry family members. As long as we are in this area, we will seek out Dr. Kim for our future needs. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts Kim!"Tiffany JacobsLakewood, ColoradoDecember 17, 2018

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Jo Millard, DVM"Dr. Jo was wonderful. We really wanted for Charlie to go peacefully as he was withering away and in pain. Once Dr. Jo was there I became unsure if this is what I wanted to do and she helped me accept what we must do and ensured me that it was the best thing to do for him so he would no longer suffer. She gave us extra time to prepare, extra time to grieve, and extra time to spend with Charlie before he left and after. She was truly amazing and made this terrible event a peaceful and memorable time for us. Thank you Dr. Jo!!!"Kristina ShaneCumming, GeorgiaDecember 17, 2018Charlie's Pet Memorial

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Kim Bruce, DVM, CVA"Dr. Kim was the best I could ever hope for to do the type of work that she needed to do! She was so patient, understanding, and compassionate regarding the emotional turmoil I was enduring in making the decision to euthanize. She provided the amount of reassurance that I needed. I hope to never need the Lap of Love services again, however if I do, I really hope I get someone like Dr. Kim again!"Dottie ClappLittleton, ColoradoDecember 16, 2018Angel's Pet Memorial
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Nancy Rodriguez, DVM"Fallujah was a majestic white German Shepherd. She was such a wonderful, loving and sweet pet, we never worried who she contacted because she never met someone she didn't like. She was close to 15 years old and that is a testimony and tribute to her and how much she was loved. Her last year was hard, she suffered increased hip pain, she would collapse and could not pick up her hind paws. She saw her younger Collie mix, Sandi die a year ago, then her other male friend Monster, died less than a month ago. Fallujah became more and more withdrawn and obviously lonely and more frail. Dr. Nancy helped me get through knowing she had been loved and to celebrate all the great memories we shared with Fallujah. I could write a book about my sweet girl, celebrating her life, her love and devotion to this family, but any pet owner feels that way. Run free of pain in fields of glory sweet Fallujah until mommy sees you again. Run with Sandi and Monster, free and happy. I love you dearly and always will."Frances TooleGraniteville, S. CarolinaDecember 16, 2018
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Aspen Perretta, DVM"I would like to express my extreme gratitude to Dr. Aspen and Lap of Love. During the most difficult day of our lives, Dr. Aspen was kind, calm, comforting, and professional. While I would give anything to have our Ella running through our home once again, it was comforting to have her pass in our home in such a peaceful manner. Ella was surrounded by her family, both human and dog. There was no pain involved in the process, and I know that she could feel our love. Dr. Aspen was so patient, allowing us as much time as we needed for each step that was taken. We will be forever grateful for this. <3"Cher BalestrieriAliquippa, PennsylvaniaDecember 16, 2018Ella's Pet Memorial

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Brad Bates, VMD"Dr. Brad is an amazing person. He is so compassionate and caring.

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Hannah Curtis, DVM"Dr. Hannah was so loving and gentle with Lilo, she passed away peacefully. Such a blessing."Jim DNewport Beach, CaliforniaDecember 16, 2018Lilo's Pet Memorial
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Brad Bates, VMD"Dr. Brad, with his kind and compassionate demeanor, made this most difficult decision a much more caring and peaceful experience. One never wants to say good bye to a beloved pet, but when the time comes, this is a loving and kind way to do so. I only wish I would have been able to do this for my other pets in the past. To have our precious Kiwi surrounded by her family was a beautiful gift for all of us. Dr. Brad was so respectful of the situation and allowed us all the time we needed. I highly recommend the wonderful service Lap of Love offers, and especially appreciate our fortune to have had Dr. Brad help us."Meg ClemmBlue Bell, PennsylvaniaDecember 16, 2018Kiwi's Pet Memorial
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Heather Manfredi, DVM"Wow, Dr. Heather was awesome. I was a total a mess knowing my best friend was going to puppy heaven. She knew exactly what to say and was so kind and gentle at a time I knew my little guy was leaving. She left me with his paw print which I tap everyday for good luck. A little bit of Max. Thank you, Dr. Heather, for all you do."Donald BellowsBabylon, NYDecember 16, 2018
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Jordan Taheri, DVM"Lap of Love, specifically Dr. Jordan, helped us say goodbye to our best friend, Taube. He was our first pup and had been with us for almost 13 years. Even though his quality of life had severely declined, contacting the service was one of the hardest things I’ve had to do. The staff was compassionate and prompt with scheduling the appointment. As you can imagine, once set, we dreaded Dr. Jordan’s arrival, hoping for any extra time we could spend with our precious boy. Luckily, at the door, was a thoughtful, compassionate individual that could help our beloved take his final journey in a gentle, pain free way. As my wife put it “This was the best way to do the worst possible thing.” And I think that is fairly accurate. No one wants to say goodbye to their friend and companion, but if you have to, having them be comfortable in their own home is the best way. We are thankful for Dr. Jordan’s composure, explanations, and reverence during this difficult time. We would recommend Lap of Love to anyone struggling to say goodbye to their beloved pet. I can’t say enough about Dr. Jordan specifically. He gave us ample time to say our goodbyes and he understood the gravity situation, treating it with the utmost respect."Fort Lauderdale, FloridaDecember 15, 2018
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Regan Harp, DVM"One year ago today it came time to let our very special fur baby go. She had been part of our family for 17 years. everyday for that 17 years without fail, I could always count on her meeting me at the door when I arrived home from work, tail wagging and excitement like she had not seen me in weeks. One day we noticed she started to seem very weak and not her usual self. We took her to our vet and was given the sad news that she had cancer and very little time to live. As hard as it was to make the call, I reached out to Lap of Love to help in this very painful process. The next night we were blessed to meet Dr. Regan Harp. As my family prepared we had no idea of what to expect and Dr. Harp with great patience, calm, and certainly a lot of compassion explained everything that was about to happen. He explained to a room full of crying people the process in a way that helped us get through it. This man treated our dog with kind care as if she was his own. What makes me write this a year later? This afternoon out of the blue, we receive a note letting us know that he and his team were thinking of us and that we were in their prayers. Such a simple gesture but one that shows how these folks care for the animals they care for and the owners they serve. A simple gesture that brought tears to my wife and daughter who have been struggling and missing our precious dog. I can't thank them enough for the care Dr. Harp provide a room full of very upset people and for the very kind note sent a year later.

Dr. Harp and team, God's blessings to you all and thank you for showing the love and care that night and the thoughts and prayers on this a day when we are still missing our sweet Snuggles! Forever grateful - The Horton Family"

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Katie Stender, DVM"Today, my husband and I set our furbaby Jasmine free and she received her angel wings. To help us through this very difficult time was Dr. Katie Stender. My husband and I truly appreciate the love and compassion that Dr. Stender showed during her visit to our home. I truly believe that God personally chose her for the work she does. She has now helped us twice to send two of our furbabies over the Rainbow Bridge, and my husband and I feel very blessed that she took both of those journeys with us.

Thank you from the bottom of our hearts Dr. Stender. You are truly an amazing person and this world needs more people like you.
