Lap of Love Veterinarian: Elizabeth Merchant"Dr. Lyza (Elizabeth) assisted us twice now. I requested her when we realized it was time to put our beloved pup down. While we hope and pray we do not have to call on her services again anytime soon, she is very kind, calming, and helpful when we all needed it most. Thank you to both Dr. Lyza and Lap of Love for your services. It means so much."Robin AmesValricoMay 28, 2020Teo's Pet Memorial

We are enormously grateful for your patience, kindness, and consultation. We are forever indebted to you for making Whiskey's last moments calm and peaceful, in the comforts of her home, surrounded by her people.

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Kristine Campanelli"My husband and I cannot say enough good things about our experience with Lap of Love and Dr. Kristine. We received nothing but compassion, grace, and kindness from the minute we made the phone call through the days after we said goodbye to our beloved greyhound Camo. While it was one of the most difficult experiences for us, we know that Camo felt safe and loved during the transition because he was home with his family, in his "spot". While its something no pet owner wants to think about, we would recommend Laps of Love a million times over to everyone when it comes time to say goodbye to their furry family members."Kate HaughieWantaghMay 28, 2020
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Jeni Goedken"Dear Dr. Jeni...... I’m brokenhearted.

But...
I never would have believed that Maisie’s death could be a really beautiful experience, and for that I thank you from the bottom of my heart. If only we all could go in such a way.

We all go into this knowing that this will happen, but it’s still tough. Thank you for making it more bearable — you made such a difference, and I appreciate it more than I can say. Thank you, thank you, thank you."

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Nellie Wilbers"Thank you! I truly appreciate the wonderful service you provide that allowed me to say goodbye to my sweet 18 year old kitty Moses in his favorite spot in our home. Dr. Nellie Wilbers was beyond amazing; I cannot say enough good things about her. She was gentle, patient, and committed to making Moses the most relaxed and comfortable he could be. I spoke with Kaycee to schedule our appointment and she too was compassionate and kind during a very difficult time. Moses gave me many years of comfort, joy, and companionship, I owed it to him to provide a peaceful end. Dr. Nellie helped him pass painlessly and without fear, I will be forever grateful. Thank you."Stacey AdamsColumbusMay 28, 2020
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Elyse Persico"Dr. Elyse is a wonderful provider. At first I was skeptical of having my dog euthanized in my home, but the more I thought about, I wouldn’t have had it any other way. The initial in take by Nicole was professional, empathetic and clearly explained. Dr. Elyse has to be one of the most patient, kind and compassionate animal and people lover I have ever met. She took her time to make sure our dog was comfortable around her and informed my husband and myself every step of the way. She never made us feel rushed and gave us plenty of time to say goodbye to Isis. It was a big relief to me to have my dog be in her home, in one of her favorite spots and be put down peacefully surrounded by her family. I am truly grateful to Lap of Love for providing a very comforting approach to a very hard time in our lives."Kimberly CrainChesapeakeMay 28, 2020
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Heather Manfredi"Using Lap of Love was a beautiful, dignified and peaceful way I could send my Jack the Pumpkin Cat, off. From my 1st phone call to when Dr. Heather showed up at my home, it all felt ok. I didn't want to traumatize my Jack, especially in his weak state. They were very empathetic and you know that these are people who genuinely adore animals."Erica ReichlinLindenhurstMay 28, 2020
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Rachel Klickman"Dr. Rachel was the best. When she came through my door with a mask on Max greeted her like he knew her. I think he was saying finally mommy gets it. She was so loving to Max and compassionate to us. She explained everything and gave us the time and space to say goodbye. Max’s anxiety level was very high and she said that he may fight falling asleep but he didn’t. All of Max’s actions told me he was ready even though I never would have been. Thank you Dr. Klickman for making Max’s final moments so peaceful."Dana WorkmanEssexMay 27, 2020Max's Pet Memorial
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Becky Frank"Dr. Becky was so professional and yet jovial at the right moments when we needed it and she sensed it. I never felt judged, and talking about his aliments just reinforced my decision to do this. I felt a strong connection with her that will last. If I ever need their services in the future if I can handle getting another pet, no question. Absolutely top notch."Marilyn CormierSinking SpringMay 27, 2020Samson's Pet Memorial
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Christina Scudder"From the initial email, Laps of Love was responsive, professional, attentive and most of all compassionate. Despite reading many heartwarming testimonials, Dr. Chris surpassed our expectations greater than words can describe. She was gentle, calm, warm, and patient with us and Clyde, our 15 year old mutt, who wasn't always the easiest to get along with, especially strangers. Clyde absolutely hated going to the vet and this service allowed us to say our final goodbyes at calmly at home, with peace. Thank you Dr. Chris. You are truly an amazing human being."Bill GeorgeSt. LouisMay 27, 2020
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Heather Manfredi"Losing a pet is very difficult and heartbreaking. They give unconditional love every minute of every day. When my dog Anthony was diagnosed with lymphoma it was very hard to accept. As I watched him decline it was very difficult . He was family and we loved him very much. Dr. Heather was so compassionate and caring . Dr Heather made a very difficult situation a little easier to accept. Thank you Dr. Heather for caring so much ."Carole DuvaPort Jefferson stationMay 27, 2020

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Lori Braun"Dr. Braun was so kind and still professional that she made Nora's passing the best a dog could have. Nora was an english setter, an eight year old throw out from a hunting kennel. Her first two years with me were not good to put it mildly as she was lost, terrified and did not know what to do. She made a decision one day that she was safe and loved and the next few years she became the best dog in the world and my constant companion. I find myself talking to her still I will always be grateful to Dr Braun for giving Nora a good death and remember that Nora trailed off eating a brownie. I will never be able to thank Dr. Braun enough for helping Nora and me so much that day."Phyllis WillnerSalemMay 27, 2020

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Laura Porta"Yesterday my sweet Ella of 15 years got her angel wings. This was the hardest thing we had to do. Ella was the sweetest, kind, loving dog. But age started to effect her quality of life and I know she was suffering. Lap of Love helped us in so many ways to be able to come to the decision it was time. Dr Laura was so sympathetic and kind to my girl. She fell asleep for eternity very peacefully. I am so happy she was at home and very relaxed. Thank you Dr Laura and all the people behind the scenes."Anita MaceriSouth lyonMay 27, 2020
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Sally Lynch"Dear Doctor Sally,
Almost a month has passed and the tears have slowly faded enough for me to write you a well deserved thank you note. On behalf of my wife and our two children we wanted to thank you for making a day of saying goodbye to both of our elderly and ill dogs as acceptable as can be. Never in my mind did I think it was going to be as emotionally trying as it was. I could never imagine trying to accomplish this undesirable deed in a veterinary office. Your professionalism and caring and gently soothing demeanor was outstanding. How you managed to keep us calm and informed as the process progressed is beyond me. Totally professional touches right down to loading the stretcher in the car. Thank you for helping us through this most difficult and challenging feat. Bella and Lola’s ashes were returned in the most beautiful decorative hardwood box with and engraved plaque. Another classy surprise. Thank you again."

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Amanda Gordon"Dr. Amanda was amazing. I had no idea this type of service was available in the comfort of our own home, outside in the sunshine. It was beautiful, calm, peaceful and respectful! Thank you so much for being so sweet, and understanding that our family needed to laugh a bit and share funny memories, that it wasn't all sadness, but enjoying the beauty of peace for our furry friend. A wonderful experience, so much better than the alternative in a cold, sterile office. Thank you again! I would highly recommend Dr. Amanda if your furry loved one needs to be passed peacefully and comfortably."Laura MRidgefieldMay 27, 2020
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Kiley Cameron"Dr. Cameron was a true angel in assisting us. Her compassion for Dude and our entire family made the process so much easier. We will forever be grateful for everything from start to finish with her being by our side to help us through the process of letting go. She made us feel like she had known us and Dude forever and spent a lot of time with us, helping him over the Rainbow Bridge at our pace. She made me feel confident that we made the right decision at just the right time in Dude’s life. I just can not say enough about Dr. Cameron and gift of peace that she gave to us on that Sunday night."Angie RigsbyMechanicsvilleMay 27, 2020Dude's Pet Memorial
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Shannon Cabell"The empathy and professionalism expressed by Dr. Shannon made the end of life process as peaceful and tranquil as possible. Our girl was able to pass in the sunshine in her own backyard which was one of her favorite places to be. Dr. Shannon explained everything to us and allowed us the time we needed. Thank you for the care, concern and compassion shown to us at this difficult time."Lisa RickettHamilton SquareMay 27, 2020Jessie's Pet Memorial

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Carling Sitterley"Dr. Carling was so kind to us. She immediately addressed the fact that this was once again an unfortunate way to be meeting as this was our second fur baby she helped cross the rainbow bridge. I’m so grateful for her kindness and that she was the one to help us with our fur baby again. She truly is a bright spot in this difficult and sad time. Thank you again, Dr Carling."Keri CrouseHummelstownMay 27, 2020Carmel's Pet Memorial

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Jessica Gibson"Dr. Jessica Gibson was amazing, allowing our dog to sit on it's favorite chair and eat it's favorite treat, peanut butter with a sedative in it, allowing her to gently go to sleep while licking the plate, surrounded by her family. I have had to put many dogs down over the past 65 years but Dr. Jessica made this the kindest experience I have ever experienced. There was no fear at all for our pet Cloe, only happiness. Thank you for your help."Mike FingerhutGreat Falls, VAMay 26, 2020
