Lap of Love Veterinarian: Kayla Stomack"Thank you Dr. Kayla for your kindess and calm and gentle presence during one of the hardest days of my life. You helped me with such compassion and care as my son and I said our final goodbyes to our sweet girl Lee Loo."Simone BoragginaMacombNovember 6, 2019
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Cyrus Wegbreit"At 16 years and 6 months old Romeo experienced kidney failure and Dr. Wegbreit helped him to cross the rainbow bridge. We are truly grateful for his assistance. He was compassionate, caring, and very knowledgeable how to help our little Romeo.
Romeo hated vet visits and Dr. Wegbreit made the whole procedure better for Romeo since we could stay at home and cuddle him on the sofa in his favorite spot. I highly recommend Lap of Love and Dr. Wegbreit. My husband and I are extremely grateful for his professionalism and kindness during this difficult time."

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Jennie Brindler"Dr. Jennie was so kind and compassionate. She came after a huge snowstorm the night before and the roads were not very good. She helped make the process as smooth and comfortable for all of us as she could. She was amazing and I'll be forever thankful for her.
Deborah who answered the phone late Sunday night was so helpful as well. I could tell she really cared as well. Lap of Love is fantastic and I will recommend them to everyone I know who might need their services. Thank you for making this difficult time a little more comfortable and bearable."

I cannot express enough gratitude for him and Lap of Love for helping us during this difficult time. He assured us we were giving Ralph the best gift and walked us through every single step with the upmost respect and understanding for our grief and pain. I honestly can't say enough about what his love and compassion did for Ralph and our family. He is truly an angel on earth along with everyone at Lap of Love.

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Tiffany Matheson"Dr. Matheson met us in the park where Mo used to play at the end of the day, she gave us the time to let him pass on his terms, we were all with him and while there's no way to remove the anguish for the living Dr. Matheson removed it for Mo, he was held and comforted as he passed, compared to the way many lives end this was the best possible passing"daniel kigginsDELRAY BEACHNovember 5, 2019Moto's Pet Memorial

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Elyse Persico"Dr, Persico was a calm and gentle presence during our emotional storm. She had a perfect demeanor and tone for our situation. She was caring, compassionate, and thorough about the process, as well as listening to Zoey's history. Our baby Zoey had "end stage" symptoms that worsened very quicky (wheezing and trouble breathing) and Lap of Love made it possible to send Dr. Persico to us just a few hours after I called. She assured us that we had done all that we could have done for Zoey and that it was time. I very much appreciate the care and gentle way she handled our sweet baby, and we are grateful for Dr. Persico and Lap of Love during this most difficult time."Marylyn ToneyNewport NewsNovember 5, 2019Zoey Toney's Pet Memorial
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Roger Chase"Dr. Roger was so kind and an easy person to have in our home. We loved our Sophie so much and it was so hard to see her in pain. We appreciated Dr. Roger’s help so she could cross rainbow bridge without any more pain.
Thank you"

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Heather Manfredi"Dr. Heather came to my home on Sunday. This was the hardest decision I had ever made. Kenzie was not just a pet, she was part of our family. Since she was adopted at 12 weeks she had spent everyday of her life with me. I was blessed to be able to bring her to work, she vacationed with our family, attended football games, etc. In that time we only spend 2 days away from each other. My heart was broken when she was diagnosed with Kidney Failure. She also had pancreatitis. To be honest I felt the vets office had lost their compassion in some ways. They could not offer any advice regarding how to make her final part of her life comfortable without what I found to be evasive treatment that would not offer any type of cure for her problems and would be very uncomfortable for her to have to go through. I was devastated to say the least. I friend recommended Lap of Love to me and I found it offered a way to end Kenzie life with love and compassion. I felt I owed her this.
Dr. Heather was very professional and offered the guidance and support I needed at this time. She was very patient and understanding.
I am still very sad but at least I know that Kenzie was not scared at the end of her life. She was in my arms, in the favorite room of our home hearing my soothing voice as she passed on."

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Mary Devlin"We have had lap of love veterinarians by our sides during all three of our dogs passings, and each one helped us through the experience tremendously. Doctor Mary was woth us most recently when we had to let our beloved Baxter go, and it can not be overstated what a great comfort it was to have her there. She was kind and compassionate throughout the experience, and made sure Baxter's passing was comfortable and dignified. Her empathy and words of reassurance made a heartbreaking day a little bit easier, and we feel so blessed that we were able to have Baxter's final moments be at home. We said goodbye to him in one of his favorite spots in his backyard on a beautiful fall day. Thank you doctor Mary for your kindness and for taking care of our baby boy in his final moments. You made all the difference."Liz McAvoyFranklinNovember 5, 2019
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Aspen Perretta"Dr. Aspen made saying goodbye a bit easier. She explained what to anticipate and allowed us to spend time with Layla both before and after her death. She allowed Layla to die with dignity and she was so respectful of both Layla and our family."Patty AlmasyCoraopolisNovember 5, 2019Layla's Pet Memorial
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Rachel Klickman"We cannot thank Dr Rachel enough of how she handled our hard decision to say good-bye to Champ, our 13 year old Cocker Spaniel. She provided the comfort and compassion that we needed and relieved our guilt over the decision. Nothing can take his place or ease our grief, but the process was easier with her heart-felt approach with our family.

Thanks again Dr Rachel!"

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Jennifer Walters"Chezzy was a feisty little protector, however, she didn't bark once when Dr. Jenn came in. Dr. Jenn's calm demeanor reassured me and obviously put Chezzy at ease. Her thoughtful and thorough questions made all the decisions and departure a calm process. I also appreciated the follow up email and card, as the past week without Chezzy has been difficult."Lita GatlinCharlotteNovember 5, 2019Chezzy's Pet Memorial

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Jennifer Walters"Thank you so much Dr. Jen!!! I have not stopped talking about how amazing Lap of Love was for us. Benji is already back home with us as of early this afternoon- incredible! I’m sorry I didn’t get to say thank you or goodbye yesterday. I just knew I didn’t want to see him any other way than our last moments. You are truly an angel and I will forever be grateful for you and your compassionate care. I still giggle at the last little snores he let out and will cherish that moment forever ❤️

Thank you for all you do!!!"

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Brad Bates"Dr. Brad was so kind and compassionate from the moment he walked into our house. He could see that we were visibly upset. He explained everything to us and what to expect. Our Junior finally wasn’t in pain and Dr. Brad helped us give that to Junior. I would highly recommend Lap of Love and Dr. Brad. My husband Rob and I are extremely grateful for you professionalism and kindness during our extremely difficult decision of euthanasia for our Junior. It is not an easy one to make but it was the right one. Thank you Dr. Brad"Nanci NolfiPhiladelphiaNovember 4, 2019Junior's Pet Memorial

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Elyse Persico"With the exception of 1 dog, we have always had our pets euthanized at home. This provides a more relaxed atmosphere and familiar surroundings for the pet. It also allows for some final goodbyes and quiet moments with your fur-baby. Doctor Elyse’s calm and compassionate nature helps establish a sense of peace in a difficult situation. I would strongly recommend using this type of service, especially when it involves such a caring Lap of Love veterinarian as Doctor Elyse."Donna SchnaarsVa BeachNovember 4, 2019
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Heather Manfredi"Dr. Heather Manfredi was just absolutely phenomenal from beginning to end. She communicated with us every step of the way. Very patient and allowed us all the time we needed to say goodbye to our dog. Couldn’t have asked for a better way to say goodbye to a family member. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her and her company to anyone. My family thanks you for all you did for us and how we were treated."John ChavezBay ShoreNovember 4, 2019
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Christina Howard"We would like to thank Dr. Christina for making a very difficult day as beautiful as possible. She helped us to give our 15-year-old precious dog, Blossom a loving end of life experience. Our journey with Laps of Love has been amazing. From the moment we contacted Laps of Love to our first meeting with Dr. Christina the compassion and kindness was much appreciated.
During the most difficult decision we had to make for our girl, Dr. Christina provided us with comfort and love. Dr. Christina first provided Blossom with a warm touch and smile. Blossom appeared so relaxed and at ease with Dr. Christina. This provided us with such comfort.
She was so loving, comforting, understanding. She answered all our concerns and helped us with all our anxieties about the process. She took her time and allowed us all the time we needed. She loving encouraged us to move at our own pace. She allowed us to spend our last moments with Blossom. She was with us as we each said our goodbyes, kissed Blossom and made sure we were all ready. She was very discrete with the procedure so that we could focus on Blossom rather than what she was doing. Blossom’s journey to the rainbow bridge was peaceful and without pain. We are forever grateful to Dr. Christina for helping us through this difficult time.
Having Blossom make her journey in her own home with her family members around her was exactly what she deserved after 15 years of wonderful moments with us. We feel very blessed to have had this experience with Dr. Christina.
With much love and gratitude.
