Lap of Love Veterinarian: Shannon Cabell, DVM"Dr. Shannon Cabell was very warm and caring for our situation. She helped ease the pain we were going through with her comforting mannerisms. She explained the process and gave us time to say our goodbyes and relieve Chopper of his sickness. We had Tibetan singing bowls playing to sooth him and us through our final goodbyes. She even made the procedure of wrapping of his body as loving and respectful as possible. His head was still looking at us as we escorted him to her Jeep. It was as hard as saying goodbye to a child going to college, but we knew Chopper wouldn't be coming home."Janine FabianoFreehold, New JerseyDecember 28, 2018Chopper fabiano's Pet Memorial
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Keri Morgan, DVM, MPH"Keri came into our house and I was very scared at first for my Sasha but when she came into the kitchen and over to the back door she looked at Sasha and asked a lot of questions to determine what was wrong with Sasha and then she explained what was going to happen and said that she would make sure that Sasha was treated with respect and kindness I really didn't want to do that to my Sasha because I love her way too much but on the other hand I knew that Sasha was really sick and couldn't be fixed up where she wouldn't be herself. I knew that I had no other choice but to say my goodbyes because I just couldn't live with myself if I didn't stop the pain that Sasha had. I would recommend Dr. Keri Morgan she was so nice to Sasha and Sasha's family. Thanks Dr Keri Morgan for being kind loving and caring for my queen bee Sasha!!!!"Jess KuhlSt. Louis MO, MissouriDecember 27, 2018Sasha Kihl's Pet Memorial
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Anne Mitchell, VMD"Dr. Anne was so nice the moment she walked into our home. She had no problem waiting a half an hour for my oldest son to arrive at the home. My family and I were given the time necessary to cope with our loss; Anne's patience and sympathy was truly a blessing. I'm glad I called Lap of Love to provide an emotional and intimate goodbye that our veterinarian simply could not . We were able share the last moments with our beautiful little ZuZu, in the comfort of our home, with all the people who loved her. Especially her Mom,her best friend, Regina. Zuzu followed my wife everywhere. Regina's love for her dog made them inseparable. To love and hold her until she passed made the difference for my wife and family. The paw print and the lockets of hair will stay with us forever. Thank you for making that moment so special.

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Sunday Cozzi, DVM"Making the final decision and phone call for our 18 year old sweet boy was heartbreaking. Dr. Sunday was calm and compassionate from the first hello with this mom who was crying so hard I couldn't talk. On the day of his appointment, we were given all the time we needed at each step. Thanks to Dr. Sunday, Ralph was able to take that final journey in a painless and stress-free manner, in his favorite spot surrounded by the people he loved, who adored him. I will always be grateful for that."patti lukeAiken, S. CarolinaDecember 27, 2018
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Keri Morgan, DVM, MPH"Making the decision to put our sweet Bentley out of his suffering was a difficult one, and one we didn't take lightly. We wanted to make sure we were doing what was best for him. Dr. Morgan arrived at the house for a consultation and had already reviewed his records. She knew about all of his treatments, specialists, tests, medicines, etc. We talked about other medicine options and whether anything could provide better relief. She was supportive and helpful and took so much time with us. We didn't feel rushed and it felt like we were her only clients all day. She left and said we could call her if we had any questions.

Ultimately, we decided what we already knew---which was that it was time to let him go. We did this quickly and called her within the hour. I said I didn't want to wait, as some of his vitals were extremely elevated on physical exam that day. She said it wasn't a problem and we could do it that day, but she let us have some time to give Bentley a final day. We got to do some last few things with him before she arrived.

When she came back she was so understanding and let us take as long as we needed. She explained every step and didn't make us uncomfortable that we were crying in front of a complete stranger. She didn't make us feel rushed in saying goodbye. She couldn't have been more considerate of our feelings and compassionate for Bentley. She was so gentle with him.

On one of the worst days of my life, I couldn't have asked for a better doctor to help Bentley go to the other side than Dr. Morgan. She made us feel comfortable and it was clear Bentley was too---which is what really matters. I hate to have to recommend this service to anyone because I like to think our pets will live forever, but if you need it, this is the ONLY way to go. It's incredibly personal and dignified and at least as far as Dr. Morgan goes, she was more than we could have hoped for."

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Christina Howard, DVM, CVA"Let me first start by thanking Dr. Howard. The experience of putting my friend down (Bryce) is something that I wish I did not have to do. That being said Dr. Howard and doing it through Lap of Love was the best of a bad situation. I have put other dogs down the conventional way of taking them to the vet and it was extremely impersonal and confusing for our pets. Having Dr. Howard come into our home and providing Bryce the experience that he had was something that I will never forget. I love him so much and will never forget him, but for him and the peace that he and our family received by doing this way has made the transition without him easier (never easy but easier). I really appreciate everything and though still numb inside felt compelled to share my experience in the hopes that this might be read by someone else faced with this difficult decision.

Thank you again for being there for us and Bryce."

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Heather Manfredi, DVM"Toby was always very friendly but he rarely gave kisses. You have to be pretty special to get a kiss and when Toby met Dr. Heather, he started leaning into her and as she spoke to him, he wagged his tail and started kissing her as if he knew that she was in our home to help him. Dr. Heather made the end of Toby's journey very peaceful for him which helped my husband and I understand it was for the best as hard as it was to let him go. We can't thank Dr. Heather enough for her love, caring and compassion … only meeting us and Toby for the first time. After going through this experience with Dr. Heather guiding us … I will never do it any other way in the future. Thank you for making Toby's last moments comfortable, peaceful and with dignity.

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Carrie Roberts, DVM"We had to make a decision that we were not ready to do very quickly. Lap of Love made special accommodations to have someone at out home that same day. We did not want to take her to the hospital since our vet was closed. Dr. Carrie came into our home and made a truly heart wrenching experience into a peaceful passing for our girl Dallas. She was able to be on her couch with her mommy holding her while being showered with all the love we have for her. Thank you so much for caring and being there for us all , we will never forget what you have done for us."Pat NoserSaint Louis, MissouriDecember 26, 2018

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Tina Olivieri, DVM"Dr Tina was amazing! It was two weeks ago today she helped me to understand that I was making the most loving decision for my special angel Rocco. After taking him in for what I thought was a minor surgery I got a diagnosis five days later that it was a very aggressive and painful cancer. I had a very short period of time to say goodbye. The next day I called Dr Tina to my house. I discussed with her what I had been informed by my vet and she confirmed everything I was told and explained what my options might be. After hearing her confirm that he was in a lot of pain I of course made the very difficult decision to euthanize him. Dr Tina explained with true kindness and compassion everything that was going to happen. Let me have all the time I needed every step she took. Will always be extremely grateful to her and the service she provided to allow Rocco and I to let go of each other in such loving and comfortable surroundings as our own home. When she put Rocco on the stretcher to take him she wrapped him in a beautiful blanket with just his head out. He looked as though he was sleeping. Dr Tina said to me I will take care of him as if he were my own. I knew she meant it. Everyday when I think of Rocco I am reminded of how truly thankful I am and will always be to Dr Tina and Lap Of Love for doing what they do. Would highly recommend this service to anyone having to make this painful decision. Goodbye for now my majestic and amazing Rocco. Someday we will be together again.

Eternally Grateful Forever
Vicki & Rocco"

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Kristine Campanelli, DVM"Absolutely amazing. I dreaded this day for so long. And I could not imagine that I can muster up the strength or the courage to make this phone call. Dr. Kristine was so genuine and truly the perfect person to go through this experience with. My baby’s passing was so beautiful and so peaceful and so lovingly and professionally done. I felt like Dr. Kristine Was someone who knew and loved Noelle like I did. We spoke prior to the procedure, and completely put my mind at ease and said everything I needed to hear completely unsolicited. She really understood where I was coming from and made everyone in the house feel at peace with what was happening. I gave my dignified lady a dignified ending. I will miss her every day for the rest of my life"THERESA DONZELLIHuntington, NYDecember 25, 2018Noelle Donzelli's Pet Memorial
