Michelle Halverson, DVM

"Thank you Dr. Michelle for helping us with our special kitty. She was a beautiful, sweet soul. But she also was very much afraid of the vet and her last few trips to the vet made her not want to engage with us, so heartbreaking.

I'm so thankful that with your service she could be home, in our arms where she belonged before passing.

Michelle, you were so professional and kind and had an open heart. You are excellent at what you do and we are so glad we called Lap of Love.

Thank you again,

Jessica Spitzer, DVM

"This was the hardest thing we've ever done. My call to Lap of Love was handled by the sweetest, most compassionate person ever. Tiffany was wonderful. She made me feel comfortable even though I was crying my eyes out and could barely talk. Our corgi of fourteen years, Moose, was suffering from degenerative myelopathy and cancer, and we had to make that last decision for him. When Dr. Jessica came the next day, she was wonderful. Very caring and understanding. She made us feel that we had made the right decision, and also made us feel comfortable even though we were not ourselves. Our baby was able to pass peacefully in our ..."

Anna Champagne, DVM

"Dr. Anna,

It was the dreaded day that we knew would come to put our Princess down, but you were wonderful!

With your kind, gentle and loving way she went out gracefully. Even as she was feeling as bad as she did, Zoe gave you love.

There was a big hole in our hearts this morning waking up without her. She always followed me around in the morning until she got her morning treats.

We all wanted to thank you for everything you did."

Shannon Cabell, DVM

"The day came when we knew we had to say good bye to our 12 yr. old Ticee. We have never used the in home euthanasia, so we were anxious and apprehensive to say the least. Dr. Shannon Cabell put us at ease within 5 min. She explained everything from start to finish. We were not rushed, her kindness to our dog was wonderful. We had the precious time needed for us to bid her a relaxed and peaceful journey. Dr. Cabell's professionalism shined thru. We are grateful for her being here and guiding us thru this heart wrenching time. She comes highly recommended in our book."

Dawnetta Woodruff, DVM

"I've already written one testimonial for Dr. Dawnetta Woodruff and Lap of Love, but one is not enough. It seems to me in today's society the personal warmth and concern in our every day dealings seems to have escaped how people interact with each other. That's not true with Lap of Love. It's been 9 days since my Inky went to the Rainbow Bridge and Dr. Dawnetta is still there and supporting me and my family. I just received a sympathy card and a donation made to the St. Louis Senior Dog Project. There are no boundaries to the love this doctor (and I'm sure all the vets) and the Lap of Love organization have for you!! Dr. "D" ..."

Cary Mackey, DVM

"Saying goodbye to a pet is saying goodbye to a family member. My dog of 10 years has been in decline for some time now and i made the difficult decision yesterday to help end her suffering. Dr. Cary was compassionate, empathetic and professional throughout the entire process which brought significant peace to our family. Thank you for providing this much needed home service for pets and their owners. Her memorial was a sweet tribute that touched my heart."

“Rocky Bear, I can't believe it's been over a week since you left us. My heart still breaks every day. There is comfort in knowing you're no longer in pain, but it doesn't make me miss you any less.”

“Our sweet Rugen, you left us so suddenly and far too soon. As I told you, you have set the bar against which all future pets will be judged, and I think they will come up short. You are the kitty who turned me into a cat person. With your bold personality, endless charm and crazy polydactyl paws, you were one in a million. You were our first baby, ...
