Helping Families Honor the Lives Of Those They Love
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Sara Barlowe"We had to make that hard decision for our precious dog Buster. We called Lap of Love and Dr. Sara Barlowe came to the house to help us give him peace. She was so sweet. It's impossible for any loving animal parent to be calm during this time, but she was so comforting and didn't rush us in any way. I can't say enough about how wonderful she was. We could tell that Dr. Sara cared - she appeared to be affected by our grief herself. We will never forget Lap of Love and Dr. Sara for all their help in one of the most difficult times.

The office personnel where just the same, from the time I called Lap of Love I felt the compassion.

Thank you Lap of Love and Dr. Sara for helping us in this time of need."

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Regan Harp"Dr Regan came to our home last Thursday. There were many times we almost called to cancel. He was so wonderful. Kaya trusted him right away...Kaya was EXTREMELY INTUITIVE. This made me cry even harder because I realized we were probably actually going to go through with the procedure. It had been raining all morning and the sun had come out strong about 20 minutes before he arrived, that was a sign too. Dr Regan realized we were still deciding and he did an exam- he talked with us about our Loyal Family member. He said Kaya looked good for his age, but that he had arthritis, a growth on his paw, was becoming incontinent & was becoming aggressive with our other large dog. He also pointed out the positive facts that he was still walking well and was eating and drinking. He let us weigh our options without pushing us at all. When we decided yes our Family was sobbing. He helped us through the procedure and was so gentle. Kaya went home so peacefully in his favorite spot outside in His Yard, in His Kingdom-because he was King Kaya!"Julie FordGreenbrierJune 2, 2020Kaya 's Pet Memorial

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Jillian Schrier"Dr. Jillian was compassionate and calm, explaining everything before she did it. She allayed my concerns, listened to my stories about Tilly, and was attentive in every way. It was a much better experience for me and Tilly than I had anticipated. Certainly sad, but it was the most compassionate way for Tilly to depart this world. Thank you Dr. Jillian!"Elaine DelBiancoMcLeanJune 1, 2020Tilly's Pet Memorial
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Allie Prokop"I cannot begin to express my gratitude towards this service and Dr. Prokop in particular. My sweet boy is *terrified* of the vet, and I had been trying to figure out what to do when he was ready to Go Home for the last few years as he got older. I was pleased to have this service recommended from friends. They allowed me to make a same day appointment as my boy went down hill very, very fast. The alternative would have been the ER vet where he was absolutely terrified, so this service was an absolute God-send.
Dr. Prokop came to my home and gave us all the information about what was going to happen and how he was going to react. She is soft spoken, kind, and infinitely caring. I cannot imagine the depth of love a vet who does this day in, day out must have, but God bless them. We were given all the time we could ever have needed, she was in no hurry and allowed us to rub and hold Benny throughout the process. We talked about my boy and others who had gone before, and when he was gone she made the comment that he had his wings now. It's silly, but that comment stuck out so beautifully...My Old Man had gone Home, reunited with his littermate.
I know this day will come again, because the greatest tribute to a wonderful dog is to save another...And I will be absolutely certain to use Lap of Love again, and again, and again. I only hope that when I die that someone is as kind and loving to me as Dr. Prokop was to my boy and my family."

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Sara Barlowe"We came to the very difficult decision to call Lap of Love after much deliberation for our 15 year old black Lab - Duke. Making the call was the most difficult decision but it was time as our dog was struggling with walking, incontinence, disorientation, and lack of movement (eating was NEVER a problem for this "beast" around food:)) and the best gift we could give to our most beloved pet. From the first call to the support team to the in home visit - this was a loving, kind, and supportive process with the entire staff of Lap of Love. Our in home vet was Dr. Sara Barlowe. From the minute she stepped out of the car and throughout the entire home visit she was a loving angel and agent of peace as our dog transitioned to what I like to think as of "greener pastures". Although, definitely one of the most difficult days of my life, I would 100% recommend both Lap of Love (have never heard of a bad and or poor review) and Dr. Sara to enter into your family and pet's home to assist in end of life care and decisions. Thanks to Dr. Sara and Lap of Love!

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Carly Billeaudeau"Carly came into our home and was very caring. She explained to me what she was going to use on my cat and how it would ease her to sleep. She also put her in a sweet little pet bed and covered her with a pink blanket after we were done saying our goodbyes. We couldn't have asked for anyone better to help us through this horrible day. I know my baby was well taken care of and that gives me comfort."Maggie CampesiBaton RougeJune 1, 2020Pennie's Pet Memorial
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Jessica Gibson"I can’t say enough good about Dr Jessica Gibson. She helped my husband and I through one of the most difficult experiences of our lives. Two weeks ago we had to have our beautiful and loyal 13-year-old yellow lab, Lizzie, euthanized. She had become increasingly ill and it was evident she had to be put down before she got any worse. Dr. Gibson spent quite a bit of time with us the day of her passing. During the procedure she took time to explain everything to us and allow us plenty of time to say goodbye to our sweet girl. Throughout the entire process she never rushed with anything and it was obvious she loves animals and would do nothing to cause undue pain. As horrible as having to do this was, having it done at home by Dr. Gibson was the best possible way it could have been done. I would recommend this service, to anyone who has to euthanize a pet. Dr. Gibson, thank you so very much from the bottom of our hearts, we received your personal sympathy card over the weekend and have it sitting next to Lizzie as a reminder of your help and love during this difficult time. Sincerely, Don and Kim"Kimberly ConroyBristowJune 1, 2020

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Kristine Campanelli"I knew it was time, but you're still never ready. I called Lap of Love on a recommendation of a friend. I wanted my Chloe to be home and surrounded by her fur siblings and human family. Chloe was 20 years old and out of no where started declining. I waited as long as I could without seeing her in pain. I made the appointment and Dr. Kristine came, she was absolutely amazing. She asks questions to get to know little about your fur baby, and gave attention to my other fur babies at the same time. she explained how everything would go and she literally kept her word and my Chloe was at peace. Dr.Kristine did not rush in and out, she took her time to get to know Chloe and us and made sure we were ready as humanly possible. I would definitely recommend Lap of Love and Dr. Kristine as she was absolutely amazing and in my opinion went above and beyond. I'll never forget how caring and compassionate she was to us and the situation."Tina DiGiovanniLake GroveJune 1, 2020
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Jessica Arth"I can't Express my gratitude enough to Dr Jessica Arth and Laps of Love. She was so kind and helpful during my little buddy's time of need helping him to transition peacefully. I was able to surround Jasper with love in the place he was most comfortable and help him find peace. After 17.5 wonderful years, it was so comforting to be able to be have him in my arms in his favorite spot when he passed on. I would recommend these services to anyone without hesitation.
