Covid-19 Update

As our world faces this global pandemic, the veterinary community has been affected resulting in Lap of Love experiencing a higher call volume than normal. We are best able to assist pet families in need with some advance notice and planning. Please know that every single pet family is very important to us and we appreciate your patience in advance.

We are taking extra precautions to help you and our team remain safe. The health of our doctors and our team is as important to us as it is to you; we will never send a sick doctor to your home.

Per CDC guidelines, fully vaccinated individuals are no longer required to wear face coverings but are encouraged to do so. The CDC acknowledges it is everyone’s responsibility to comply with this policy via the honor system.

We will also be taking the following precautions to ensure both you and our team remains safe:

  • Our doctors are not required to receive the COVID vaccine, though most have chosen to. Our doctors will enter your home with a mask on, out of respect for your personal space. We request, but do not require, that you wear a mask when the doctor is within 6ft.
  • When scheduling an appointment, we do ask that you inform us if anyone who plans to be present at the time of the appointment have tested positive or been symptomatic for COVID-19 within 10 days, and whether anyone present at the time of the appointment is under quarantine. We kindly ask that your family inform us if these circumstances change so that we may determine the safest way to help.
  • This may be the only time you won’t get a hug from us! This is usually the most important part of our time with you, communicating our support via a hug or warm handshake, but we’re doing our best to minimize physical contact.
  • We have had to limit our normal practices, just as so many have, by temporarily discontinuing hospice appointments at this time. This is in effort to be present and available for the increased need to provide beloved pets with peace at home.
