Helping Families Honor the Lives Of Those They Love
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Jessica Spitzer"We had 3 dogs who live with my sister, my boyfriend and me. We formed a very content and happy pack. Bailey was my golden doodle who was a rescue. We got her when she was five and she had been abused. My boyfriend totally worked hard to get her trust him. She adored him. When we had her only 2 weeks our cleaning ladies left our gate open and all 3 of them ran out. Luckily my sister got home to see 2 of them frolicking up and down our neighborhood. But Bailey wasn't aware of her surroundings yet and took off on walk about. She ended up gone for 10 days. She was spotted everywhere around our neighborhood people would call and she would run the other way. She even ended up on the freeway and the highway patrol called me to let me know they got her off the freeway but she wouldn't go to them. Interestingly enough they told me that all traffic stopped for her and people were opening their doors to get her inside and she just kept running. Finally someone who saw my add in Craig's List called to tell me they thought they had my girl. She was a good five miles from us in someone's hedge and just gave out. My boyfriend and I crept up to her and softly called her name she looked up and ate the whole can of food I placed in front of her. I thought we would have to get her to an emergency vet. Aside from smelling like a hobo she was not injured. Smart girl. So we were lucky enough to have this sweet quiet kind girl for 7 years.

I probably waited too long before I called LapofLove and that's on me. But when they came they helped the situation unbelievably. Dr Jessica was loving, caring and gentle with her and Bailey had no hint that she was just going to sleep for now and no more hurting or pain. I am really glad I did call Lap of Love because I think I would have been panicked once she passed at home and all of the horror of dealing with that. Dr Jessica came, did all the right things and took her away. My other two dogs must have sensed that this was it as they had been leaving her alone for a couple of weeks. But our cat BoDiddley jumped into her bed with her and snuggled up to her until she was gone. All of her pack were there to watch her go peacefully and that means the world to me. Angela Comin"

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Hannah Curtis, DVM"Thank you so much for helping us. Our dog developed stage 5b cancer, and we made the most difficult choice of our lives to have her euthanized. Lap of love was so amazing, supportive, informative and caring during our time of need. Dr Hannah specifically was fantastic, and I appreciated all she did for us. I can never thank them enough. They made the whole process easy for all of us."Jack WeilerRedmondJuly 1, 2019

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Rachel Klickman"Very special thanks to Dana Rine & Dr. Rachel Klickman, Lap of Love Veterinary Hospice. Dana went out of her way to find a vet who could come that day, & found Dr. Rachel, who was such a Godsend, and made saying goodbye so much easier. Both sent me lovely personal messages following his death which were so warm & caring. Dr. Rachel was very careful to ensure that I had time with Polar, that I was comfortable at every step, & looked out for my other dog's reactions as well. Polar was the first pet I had to make this decision for, but I was so comforted by having a caring provider help Polar and me."Nalini CherianSilver SpringJuly 1, 2019
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Mary Kovach"Dr. Mary gave me a gift that I will never be able to repay, but will forever be grateful for her generosity.

Her care with me, blubbering all the time, loving on Krystal and saying something calming or not saying anything at all, just a hand to hold in order to help me.

She was so incredibly gentle with Krystal and told me everything she was doing so I wasn't surprised, and gave me additional information about the after care process that I certainly, now understand, and so appreciate. Krystal seem to trust her when she first walked in so it may the transition easier to process.

Dr Mary IS a gift, and one that I will treasure, and remember always.

With respect,

Susan Richards"

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Christina Hampton"Dr. Christina was an angel. She was so kind and considerate, letting me hold him as he passed, giving us the time we needed, and helping him to pass with dignity and honor. And even though it isn't normally done, she even shaved him for us so we could collect his hair to be turned into yarn. I could not have asked for a more caring doctor to help my baby boy and I appreciate what she did for us and for him especially more than words can describe."Kit S.CaryJuly 1, 2019Josie's Pet Memorial

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Abra Osorio"Thank you so much for coming yesterday. You helped me to better understand his illness and to accept that it was time to let him go. You were so kind, respectful, and caring of the process. You gave Miles and I peace and love in a moment that will stay with me forever. 💗

We took him out to my moms and he is resting with other beloved animals. We thought of him and talked through the fun memories! He was my buddy and will be deeply missed.

What you do is such a gift. If you don’t mind, I will definitely share your info on to others who are in need. You were like an angel who came to help during such a heartbreaking time. Thank you for honoring his life with me and helping me to let him go. I know he was welcomed to heaven with open arms - although I’m sure his little attitude was still there 😊

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Sally Lynch"We are so grateful for the peaceful, caring, expertly managed end Dr. Sally gave our dog Sammy two days ago. Sammy had always been afraid to go to the vet, so when it was clearly her time, we knew we wanted to give her an experience that was calm and loving and lacked any stress. Dr. Sally brought some treats Sammy clearly enjoyed even in her condition, and she went to sleep right after finishing some tasty food, clearly her ideal end as delicious food had been one of her greatest pleasures in life (she was a lab mix). We are still grieving our beloved Sammy but could not have asked for a more perfect experience either for her or for us. Thank you so much to Dr. Sally and everyone at Lap of Love."Talia BOULANGERWESTFORDJune 30, 2019

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Kristine Campanelli"I can't put into words how comforting & caring Dr. Kristine was the morning she came to put our sweet old girl Chloe to sleep. She certainly made a heartbreaking experience a bit easier to handle. This is not the 1st time I have had Lap of Love come to our home & they are wonderful. I just had an experience of going to the vet office to put my fiances dog to sleep & we did not have time to make arrangements with Dr. Kristine & I would never want to do that again. It was a terrible experience for both the family & the dog. I really wish they would have had the time to have Dr. Kristine come to their home. She is an angel."Alissa MassimilloMassapequa ParkJune 30, 2019Chloe's Pet Memorial
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Shannon Skevakis"I am very grateful to Dr. Shannon for traveling to me and Whiskey, she was 16 a lab/Shepard mix and my world for the past decade. As a former Veterinary Technician I knew the drill, but when it comes to your baby it’s very different. It was a beautiful Saturday, Whiskey and I spent the majority of the day outside I gave her a good grooming and all the busy bones she could eat! When it was time she went peacefully in my arms in our yard surrounded by her family. Thank you Dr. Shannon for making that kind of peace possible for us all.

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Jordan Taheri"I want to thank Dr. Jordan for giving Charlotte the peaceful end she so deserved. Her final moments were spent at home. Calm and relaxed. Lying where she always had. Falling asleep where she always did. If not for Dr. Jordan and Lap of Love, things would have been very different. For that I am and will remain grateful. Thank you."Martin SalcedoPlantationJune 29, 2019
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Tina Olivieri"We had the great fortune to meet Dr. Tina at a very stressful time for our family. One of our two Australian Shepherds was dying from osteosarcoma (bone cancer). Unfortunately, this condition was fast growing and extremely painful. Within six weeks of the diagnosis, our Willie had reached the limits of pain management. Dr. Tina is a wonderful person. Her caring demeanor and loving compassion were of great help to us during this sorrowful experience.

If you’re at this site, you are probably going through the same pain and grief we were. Torn between love and pain, and knowing that your loved one is dependent on your help has brought you here. You are at the right place, and Dr. Tina’s compassionate care will help you through this traumatic time.

We wish you love and peace, Julie and Bill"
