Lap of Love Veterinarian: Jennifer Vencil, DVM"I'm embarrassed to say I don't even know "Dr. Jennifer's" last name!...she was an angel to me. Thank you for your services. Pebbles was "the best dog ever"....I don't know how anyone could have been more kind. It was late at night and I know Dr. Jennifer had already had a long day! But she was so sweet and listened ...that made it bearable. Many, many thanks. Leigh Ann Scott"Leigh Ann ScottJacksonville, FloridaNovember 9, 2013
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Dani McVety, DVM"Dr. Dani really helped us with what was quickly becoming a very hard situation. Her presence from the first moment we spoke on the phone was very calming and she slipped into our home the same way. As Shmoo laid in my lap on his favorite chair, she allowed us to take as long as we needed to say goodbye and then quietly and gently helped our boy to cross over. She allowed us to tuck him into her basked wrapped in his favorite blanket and with the same kindness and gentleness, placed him carefully into her car. I sing her praises, and Lap of Love, to anyone I meet who might need it. Thank you so much Dr. Dani!"Rebecca CoxTampa, FloridaNovember 8, 2013Shmoo's Pet Memorial

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Madelyn Goocher, DVM"Dr. Madelyn Goocher, not only an amazing doctor, but an amazing friend to my family. Putting our sweet Sawyer to rest was definitely the most difficult decision to make. We battled many days with the thoughts of if this was the right thing to do. We hated to say goodbye to him knowing it would feel like eternity until we will meet again one day to see him. Dr. Goocher was by our side through the last weeks of Sawyer's life guiding us in the right direction. She never once thought about herself, but, instead, she comforted us through the rough few weeks and helped us to make the best decision for Sawyer. On the night we said goodbye to Sawyer, Dr. Goocher was so gentle and kind and loving. She made one of the most heartbreaking events of our life, a very peaceful and beautiful goodbye. She gave Sawyer the opportunity to say goodbye to us with dignity, instead of seeing him suffer any longer. Dr. Goocher (Maddy), you will forever hold a special place in our hearts. We love you to the moon and back."Mandy Middlebrook-LovettDestrehan, LouisianaNovember 7, 2013

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Barry Cherno, DVM"On our final day with Cassidy, we called Lap of Love, and Rose answered, who was very sympathetic to our situation. Dr. Barry arrived within several hours as promised. He was very professional, comforting, assuring, and empathetic. He quietly sat with us and talked, observing Cassidy. He agreed Cass was in distress, and it was ‘time’. He explained each option and step, providing us time to accept each one and answer any questions we had. I thanked him for what he does, as it was SO VERY IMPORTANT for us to have the peacefulness and privacy to ‘end’ our time with Cassidy. We have shared our experience about Dr. Barry and Lap of Love with many already! They made a truly awful day smoother and easier. Thank you folks for doing what you do!"Dawn & Horst ProebstlNew Port Richey, FloridaNovember 3, 2013Cassidy's Pet Memorial

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Christine Shibly, DVM"Dr. Christine was amazing from the moment she walked through the door. She was kind, thoughtful and compassionate. She listened to our stories about our wonderful cat, Onyx, who allowed us to love him for 19 years. Onyx was able to be in the seat of his choice (my favorite seat too!) when he passed and I'm sure that made him happy. We will miss him terribly but love that he passed peacefully surrounded by the people who loved him and in the loving care of Dr. Christine."June LeflerAlexandria, VirginiaNovember 1, 2013

Everything went just as I had hoped it would. Tory was so comforting to me in my grief. She even made me a heart shaped paw print plaque with Faith's name stamped on it.

He took his time to explain everything to us and we were able to do things at our own pace.
