Lap of Love Veterinarian: Shannon Skevakis"Shannon was amazing and we could have not asked for a kinder experience given the circumstances. She answered all of the kids (and our) questions with the knowledge and emotional support that we needed. I could not have imagined our girl going through this in a cold sterile veterinary office. I am so glad she was able to be in her happy place, in our home being comforted by those she loved in her final moments."Kristy & John QuinnLedgewoodOctober 23, 2019Bailey's Pet Memorial
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Ashleigh Rhoades"From the moment I called them every person I spoke to was kind and compassionate as they helped me make the decision to let my dog of 15 years have a peaceful final moment. Lucy passed at home before the scheduled appointment and lap of love was kind, and let me know how to handle her before they picked her up. Dr. Rhoades arrived and was a kind, caring and compassionate person on a very difficult morning. At every point she spoke to Lucy in a respectful manner and treated me with the utmost genuine kindness. As hard as it was to lose my friend of 15 years the entire team at lap of love made a difficult time easier. I have recommended their exemplary services to friends an colleagues of mine who are also dealing with aging companions. Thank you for everything."Cristin CollierSeattleOctober 23, 2019

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Lori Braun"Sending a warm thank you to Dr. Lori. I believe the first thing I said to her upon shaking her hand was, "I don't know how you do what you do." Her reply soothed my heart a bit right away... "It's all about being part of the love." Well said, Dr. Lori. Your efforts show just that, and you could not have been kinder and more supportive. You said all the right things and provided the perfect amount of involvement. Thank you. It was by far the hardest day of my life. I'm thankful that you were there. Fletcher was too. With gratitude, Tara"YamhillOctober 22, 2019

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Kristine Campanelli"Dr. Kristine was beyond professional and compassionate. My husband and I were faced with a heartbreaking diagnosis for our beloved Kamo and Dr. Campanelli came to our home and put us at ease in our decision. She spoke with us prior and asked about our boy and when the time came she was beyond compassionate.

I can not say enough about Dr. Kristine."Diane NeidhartRidgeOctober 21, 2019

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Jennifer Walters"We were referred to Lap of Love by a personal friend who is a veterinarian, after we came to the heart-wrenching decision to put our dog down. Our beloved Miniature Schnauzer, Ziggy was suffering from complications associated with Mitral Valve Disease (MVD). It was becoming excruciating to watch her struggle to breath. Her panting was so labored, and she coughed so hard, it seemed like she was choking. She had fainting episodes that were becoming more frequent, and would often cause her to scream in pain if she collapsed and her limbs were caught in an awkward position. It was just heart breaking to see her struggle after doing the things she enjoyed, like chasing squirrels in the backyard, or barking at other dogs passing by the house. She had become very lethargic and "lazy". It was because her breathing was such hard work. It was exhausting for her.

Dr. Jenn was the veterinarian assigned to us. She arrived at our home to conduct the euthanasia process. She had the sweetest, and most calming presence. Honestly when I opened the door, it felt as if an angel had arrived to help us deal with a really tough situation. She explained what we could expect to see happen in a way that was reassuring and comforting. She gently guided us through the process, but allowed us to set the pace. Dr. Jenn sat on the floor with us in Ziggy's favorite spot and listened to us as we loved on and reassured our pooch that everything was going to be okay. It was a quick and calm process. When Dr. Jenn announced that Ziggy was at peace, it was the perfect description, because that's exactly how she looked: completely at peace. Dr. Jenn gave us all the time we needed with Ziggy.

I am convinced it was our duty to care for our beloved four-legged family member with the best of our ability, and making the decision to stop her suffering fell right in line. Lap of Love really helped us, as it was not the easiest decision to make. Deciding to do it in our home where Ziggy was most comfortable and calm was our last act of love towards her.

Many thanks to Dr. Jenn for her loving care of Ziggy at the end of her wonderful life. And to Michael who assisted us on the phone in booking the appointment, and his words of comfort and assurance. You both, and your agency are a blessing."
