Lap of Love Veterinarian: Jennifer Bell"My partner and I had to make the difficult decision to euthanize our 15 year old dog Mason due to chronic health conditions. Over a several day period his health declined and we knew that we needed help for him. I contacted Lap of Love this morning and explained his health history and current condition. The young lady that I spoke to was very warm and caring, and many times expressed sympathy as to imminent loss of our sweet boy Mason. The appointment was scheduled for 5:00 PM. I received a call at about 3:30 PM saying that Dr. Jennifer Bell could be there around 4:00 PM if we wanted her to or we could wait for the scheduled time. We asked that she come early. She arrived right when she said she would. She was respectful of our home and safety and wore and mask at all times. We explained his health history to her . She then told us everything that she would do to make his passing peaceful. She gave us all the time we needed and did not rush us. She explained what she was doing at each step of the process. She worked from across the room when she could so that we were able to keep our masks off so Mason could see our faces and hear us. She even brought him a brownie to eat as a last treat. She administered a sedative to make sure that Mason would not be aware of what was happening. The whole time my partner and I were on the floor on each side of him cuddling him, petting him, and telling how much we loved him. His passing was very peaceful which is what we wanted. To have the moment with your ill pet is something I will always cherish. He died in the arms of his daddies knowing that we loved him. Afterwards, Dr. Bell gave us all the time we needed with him and explained everything regarding his cremation and return of his ashes. The amount of peace we were given by in-home euthanasia is not something I can describe. Not having to take our baby to a vets office during this difficult time was priceless. Him being at home with his family made the day just a little better. If you have an ill pet and are considering euthanasia I encourage you to contact Lap of Love. Dr. Bell was very caring, sensitive and compassionate. It was evident that Dr. Bell loves what she does. Thank you. You made a painful day just a little better. Love you my sweet Mason. You were the best dog anyone could have asked for. I love you."Cory ProciseDublinJanuary 16, 2021
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Jessica Gibson"Putting Arnold down was the hardest decision that we struggled with for many many months as his health deteriorated. In our final week together, my partner and I went back and forth so many times on going through with the procedure. At the end of the day we still pray it was the right decision to make for our little guy. Dr. Gibson was very professional and respectful of our last moments with Arnold. I appreciated her giving us the time that we needed to say goodbye even after she arrived. As it was a very personal time for our family with lots of tears and uncontrollable emotions, Dr. Gibson was very respectful to give us privacy to let the tears flow and also comforted us by letting us know what Arnold would experience and how his body was reacting after the medication was given. At the end of the day, if we had to do this ever again, Lap of Love is the place we would turn to. Having our final moments at home and together with our little pup, I couldn’t imagine having it be different. Thankful that this service was available to us and that our neighbor told us that it even existed as an option."Jzaleh AbbasiAldieJanuary 16, 2021Arnold 's Pet Memorial
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Casandra Huelin"I experienced the highest quality of care for my dog and my family. Casandra was very gentle and was calm throughout the whole process, and that really helped with the whole experience. My family felt very safe with this service.

My dog has always been my number 1 in life, and by the end of everything I really did feel like I gave him a big gift. I will always miss him, he gave me and my family such great memories and laughter.

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Kim Bruce"Dr. Kim
I really appreciate your kindness, and how even through a very difficult time you made it so much more calm. Even my son commented on how you were so kind, and he could tell you really cared about us and Stella. It was really sweet, and I felt the same way.
It was a heartbreaking losing her but I’m thankful that it came on fast and she died so peacefully.
You truly have a gift and I thank you for helping us through such a hard experience.

Betsi ❤️"

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Charlie Deutsch"How can we relate to you the peace and, yes, happiness that my husband and I feel just three days after saying goodbye to our beloved 15 year old German Shepherd, Ali. Ali was all that we could have ever wanted in a "child". She was a devoted, loyal companion that will always be remembered for her unique qualities. Because of those qualities and the peace that Dr. Charlie left with us we are without doubts that we did the right thing and will replace the hole in our hearts with another beloved pet.
If you, as we did, face this difficult decision, know that Dr. Charlie will take the time and show you compassion in this most difficult of times. We are forever grateful to Lap of Love and particularly Dr. Charlie."

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Mary Devlin"Dr Mary was amazing. She was so supportive, loving and caring giving us time to be with her before and after the procedure. She came in and talk to us for a little bit going over the procedure asking if we had any questions reassured me, let me talk and discuss any of my questions or fears she made me feel so comfortable so at ease at the worst day of my life. I was losing my fur baby and I was so glad she was there for us and Colbie."Kristine ThomasTewksburyJanuary 15, 2021Colbie's Pet Memorial
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Carly Billeaudeau"Dr. Carly could not have done more to make such a difficult experience feel so peaceful and comforting. She has the most gentle bedside manners and truly cares for her patients, as she cried along with us when we said goodbye to our Meka. Worth every penny & should i need to put any other of our pets down in the future, there’s no doubt i will use her again."Kaitlin SavageBaton RougeJanuary 15, 2021Meka's Pet Memorial

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Amy Parrish"Words cannot express how thankful we are for having found Lap of Love. After a long night and a difficult decision, I called at 9am on January 11th. The voice on the other end of the phone (I’m so sorry, I forget her name) was so compassionate and patient as I spoke those dreaded, “I need to have my dog euthanized.” (As if “euthanized” would make it easier), through my tears. Dr Amy was able to be at our house by 11am. She was so great. She listened with compassion while I told her about our Fritz. She explained everything to my husband and me in a way that made it seem less scary. She also provided us reassurance that we were doing the right thing (which was so important for us to hear). Though masks were required, she was able to step back and give us time to kiss and hug our baby without our masks as he fell asleep.

We cannot express how thankful we are to Lap of Love. You are all angels. Dr. Amy, we will forever be grateful to you for giving Fritz the ability to pass without any unnecessary added stress, in his own home.
Thank you."

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Charlie Deutsch"Dr Charlie was awesome! He was calm and gentle with my Boy. He explained everything in a way that everyone understood. He patiently waited while we told stories and tried to be ready. As my boy slipped away and we all cried, he was a steadying presence. Everyone agreed how wonderful the whole process was. I would recommend him wholeheartedly to anyone who has to go through this heartbreaking part of life."Jeri PerkinsTustinJanuary 15, 2021
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Charlie Deutsch"My beloved companion, Visco, had been dealing with a condition that took a turn for the worst in December of 2020. We exhausted every possible solution to help him recover and improve his quality of life in order to keep him with us. Unfortunately, things did not go as we had hoped, and we were forced to make the decision that was ultimately best for Visco. I am thankful to have found lap of love. We wanted our boy to remain in the comfort of his own home during his last moments, as opposed to taking him to our traditional vet's office (where he would become anxious). Lap of love's in-home services were not the only thing that set them apart, their compassion and understanding towards us and the situation as a whole was unmatched, which was crucial to us. They thoroughly explained the process to us from start to finish beforehand, but I still was not completely sure of what to expect. We had the privilege of meeting & welcoming Dr. Charlie into our home to see us & our boy through his last moments. Dr. Charlie showed Visco tremendous care and compassion, and he equally showed that same care and compassion towards us. Losing your companion is never easy, and often times we are left to "figure things out" on our own afterwards. Dr. Charlie comforted us and gave us the answers we would soon need. He also had resources readily available to begin our healing process. We consider ourselves fortunate to have worked with Dr. Charlie & Lap of Love and will ALWAYS recommend them."Jordan PartidaWhittierJanuary 15, 2021

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Sarah Ryan, DVM"Doctor Ryan was incredible. She was so understanding and sweet and knew exactly what to do. I am so glad I got to use this company to give my baby the best end he could get. He was an elderly rescue with severe health issues and she was totally understanding of my fears and concerns and made us both feel so comfortable. I got his remains back very quick and the box it comes in is very nice. I will recommend this company and never forget. Thank you so much."hillary faustToledoJanuary 14, 2021

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Desiree Thomas"There are few things more heart breaking than parting from your dog. Our faithful, best dog-in-the-world, Jack, got to the point in his 15 year, 10 month life, where he could go no further.

Having had to put pets down before, we were eager to try Lap of Love as an alternative to a sterile vet's exam room. We were very pleased to have our "boy" lying across our laps, on his favorite sofa, as he passed to the big doggy run in the sky.

Dr. Thomas was compassionate, and highly professional. As heart-wrenching as it was, we could not be more appreciative and thankful for the Lap of Love service."

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Shannon Cabell"Its only now we can pull it together to thank Shannon and her office for the wonderful service they provide. Having Lap of Love come to our house for Max wasn't hard; I hope it showed Max how much he was loved. From our first phone call to their office to meeting Shannon, the entire process was thoughtful and caring. Shannon was so kind and patient. Max knew this; upon her arrival he offered her his paw! Max was our sweet boy and we miss him every hour of every day. Because Lap of Love exists, we consider ourselves beyond blessed to be able to say goodbye to him , which I hope, was on all our terms. He was suffering and we wanted to set him free from the constraints of his disease and we thank Lap of Love for existing. Desiree and Bryan"Desiree BryantHamilton SquareJanuary 14, 2021

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Caroline Kiert"Letting our beloved companion of 14+ years go was excruciating, but I am so thankful that, because of Lap of Love, he was able to pass away calmly, in his own home. Dr Caroline was so gentle with him - and with my husband and me. She was truly empathetic, carefully explained everything, made helpful recommendations, and made the experience much more bearable. With the COVID-19 pandemic, we were nervous about letting someone in our house, but she took all possible precautions. We truly appreciated her kindness and professionalism, and most of all that our dog didn’t have to die alone or afraid."Amanda MeekerSacramentoJanuary 14, 2021
