Lap of Love Veterinarian: Beth Meadow"Dr. Beth Meadow was so wonderful and helpful to me during this most difficult of days. She exuded warmth and caring, making sure that both Rufus and I were as comfortable as we could be throughout the process. She also knew intuitively when to step away and give me and Rufus space alone after he had passed. Although this was one of the hardest days ever for me, it was a 1000% better because of the humanity Dr. Beth showed to me and Rufus. I'll never go through this again in an animal hospital setting if I can avoid it!"Jennifer HymanWASHINGTONSeptember 30, 2019Rufus's Pet Memorial
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Lori Braun"I cannot express how grateful I am to Lori Braun. Letting our Jackie (pug) go was going to be terrible and we knew it would be one of the hardest things we had to do. The minute she walked thru the door she began to make us feel better .She was so kind to Jackie, feeding her homemade brownies and telling her what a good girl she was. Dr. Lori explained to us what physical issues she saw with Jackie, letting us know that Jackie was struggling and if it contiinued she would end up suffering. She let us know we were making the right decision to let her peacefully pass on. Lori gave my husband and myself just what we needed with her compassion and knowledge. She also gave Jackie a very peaceful passing at home, I could not have asked for any better. Thank you so much."Cindy dittmarcanbySeptember 30, 2019

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Heather Manfredi"I am forever grateful to Dr. Heather Manfredi for her gentleness and quiet dignity she afforded my Cassidy in crossing the Rainbow Bridge. Cassidy was my buff colored cocker spaniel who almost made it to his 16th birthday. Making the decision to cross him over was one of the hardest decisions I ever had to make; but I knew it was his time and I had to let him go. My vets had recommended Lap of Love to me several years ago as an organization of vets that come to your home and offer an alternative setting for you and your pet. I knew it was going to be the right choice for me and my boy.
I, without reservation, can tell you that the moment Dr. Heather walked through my door, I knew I had made the right decision. Her soft voice, compassion, patience and love of animals was immediately evident. Once Cassidy had crossed, she prepared him in a beautiful wicker basket with a lovely blanket and his favorite squeaker bone. With Dr. Heather's help Cassidy became an angel of beauty. Since Cassidy's passing, I have received several personal notes from her inquiring as to how I was doing..that is truly touching and I appreciated those notes so much.
Without hesitation, I would recommend Lap of Love as an alternative to traditional settings when your pet's time comes. I am eternally grateful to you Dr. Heather and Lap of Love for providing such a wonderful service to pets and their parents.
Thank you Dr. Heather and Lap of Love for all that you do for us. Fondly and with great respect, Nora"

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Christina Guillory"Christina came into our home with such compassion and patience at such a difficult time. Our pet Nismo had been with us for 17 years, He took it upon himself to protect us but more importantly to protect our son. So much so he went with our son the 6 years at Texas A&M while he got his degree.
Christina was very accommodating as we requested to be outside in our back yard when Nismo went to doggy heaven.
We will always be great full to Lap of Love."

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Melanie Santspree"Dear Dr Santspree

Darrick and I would like to thank you so much for making a difficult time for us a lot easier. Your kindness and compassion for our family and our boy Texas will never be forgotten. Texas gave us so much in his almost 18 years with us so we owed it to him to make his passing calm and surrounded by the people who loved him and in his favorite place, outside in his truck. You were able to provide this for him and we will be forever grateful for your services. I hope you continue to help pets and their families during these difficult times, because you are so good at it. ❤️ I attached two pictures one is a picture of Texas in his younger years, he was pretty handsome if I do say so myself😄 and one if from the sunset from the day of Texas passing, I took it as a sign that he made it to heaven ok. Again thank you!
-Angela & Darrick Vanderwalker and Gunner too🐾"
