Helping Families Honor the Lives Of Those They Love
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Lisa Rodin"Dr. Lisa,
Thank you so much for your assistance with Lucky. I have been dreading that moment for what seems like years now. Hes been by my side my entire adult life, I honestly can't really remember a major life event that wasnt shared with him. Hes been my only child/best friend for almost 15 years. It's going to be hard but I want you to know how much comfort I got from being able to see him leave this world so comfortably. I honestly believe that alleviated so much stress and anxiety I had about the situation as a whole. I will miss him the rest of my life, but he was ready, and I am SO grateful you were able to provide us such a wonderful experience. I am forever grateful to you and everyone at Lap of Love. I hope you are very proud of the work that you do. I never in a million years thought Lucky passing away could be so pleasant. Thank you, thank you, so much. ❤"

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Sarah Ryan, DVM"Dr. Sarah was incredibly comforting, professional, and supportive during a challenging time for my family and me. Her warmth, kindness, and knowledge allowed us to be fully in the moment with our pet in the final moments.

I experienced safety and reassurance from Dr. Sarah, and I will absolutely recommend her and Lap of Love to any family members or friends should they ever need this service.

Still amazed at how smooth the process the Lap of Love team created was - from the first consultation call to the beautiful follow-up. Having Sarah there on that day gave me peace! I feel like I made the best decision for my pup, and Sarah was a big part of that. Her acknowledge meant the world to me. Thank you so much!!"

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Elizabeth Johnson"Lap of Love and Dr. Elizabeth were amazing. I would recommend Lap of Love 100 times over. Dr. Elizabeth sat on the floor with my mastiff and took her time to give him loving and get to know him a little bit. She gave the sedation in his neck like a normal vaccine, so my dog didn't feel a thing. She let him sleep peacefully under sedation for almost 10 minutes to make sure he was very relaxed and would not feel a thing. She told me before the final injection so I could be prepared. She was incredibly patient and kind. Spent over an hour at my house and made sure I never felt rushed. It was an extremely peaceful passing and I couldn't have asked for better for my sweet old puppy. Another thing I really appreciate about Lap of Love is that they get all the payment information & cremation preferences when you book the appt. Not when they're in your home and about to say goodbye. I'll recommend Lap of Love every time to friends & family and will use them again when I have to make that impossible decision."Jaklyn BurkSmyrnaFebruary 10, 2020
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Roger Chase"To Dr. Roger, Thank you for helping me in ending Charley's pain and suffering. I miss her more than I thought I would.

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Will Basinger"Saying goodbye to our sweet Philly was the hardest day of our lives, but I couldn't imagine this day without Dr. Will. The compassion and care that he showed for us and our girl made him feel like part of the family. Dr. Will treats pets as if they are his own, and that helps so much when you're family is hurting so deeply. I can not recommend him and Lap of Love enough. Thank you for helping our family during this difficult time."Jodi GrollerIrmoFebruary 10, 2020
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Will Basinger"Dr. Will, I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for all you have done for our family caring for Philly. I truly believe God does all things for a reason and he certainly put you in our life to handle the difficult times we faced. You are truly a special person on this earth. Your compassion, empathy and dedication to the well being of Philly was overwhelming. From the first time we met you and the way Philly took you in, was awesome. We know that our sweet Philly is in a better place, free of the pain and suffering that cancer brought her. We are eternally grateful to you and the work that you do for pet lovers like the Groller's. I don't know how you do it, but I am thankful there are people like you that do what you do. We will forever be connected each and every day as we remember how special Philly was in our life.

With love,

Brett, Jodi, Braiden and Philly"

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Jeff Carpenter"My cat Seamus was very special and I think he thought of himself as a person. He loved everyone and was a source of comfort after my husband died. When I knew it was time to let him go, I wanted him to be in his home and in his favorite spot.
Dr. Jeff was so gentle and caring and let me have as much time as I needed with Seamus. I am so glad my vet told me about Lap of Love."

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Jessica Bollinger"Lola was our English Bulldog who was turning 8 on February 7th. She was slowly declining and I was planning on calling and scheduling someone to come to our home at the end of the month but kept putting it off. Well on her birthday she took a turn for the worse real fast. We think she had a seizure. We knew we had to end her suffering faster than we were ready. I called Lap of Love at 11:30am and Dr. Jessica was at our house by 1:00. Our two middle school-aged sons were here and she did a wonderful job of explaining what was going to happen and keeping us all calm. She was able to read how much pain Lola was in and knew we had to help her fast but she did it with so much empathy. I got to hold Lola the whole time and Dr. Jessica asked me if it was ok to move Lola's leg or change positions. She never once told me what to do. This was the first pet we've lost. As imperfect of a time in our life as it was, it was the most perfect way to go through it. Thank you Lap of Love and Dr. Jessica for helping us help Lola through such a difficult time."Erica LaRoseSt MichaelFebruary 8, 2020
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Kayla Stomack"My wife and I were heartbroken when our 18 year old Siamese cat was diagnosed with kidney failure and began to fail fast. After our children grew up and left, Spencer became the driving force in our home and was a constant loving companion. We could not imagine life without him. What we did know was that we would not compound his physical suffering by taking him, when the time came, to his vet, a frightful ordeal for him under the best of circumstances. We were grateful to learn of Lap of Love and Dr. Kayla. She came to our home, examined Spencer, and worked with our wonderful vet, Dr. Ruiz and her staff, to prescribe treatment that eased our boy’s pain. And, when the time came, Dr. Kayla compassionately assisted Spencer to pass with the dignity he deserved as he slumbered sweetly in his own bed. As terrible as this experience was, it was the best it could be. We cannot thank Dr. Kayla enough."David BudkaClinton TownshipFebruary 8, 2020
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Christina Scudder"Dr. Chris was so kind, patient and gentle. Daisy was relaxed, and at peace. So were we. Her sister Riley was with her, and was able to see and smell when she was gone. It was a lovely ending to a very difficult time.
My family is so very grateful to have had access to this service. I highly recommend Lap of Love when the time comes."

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Jennie Brindler"Dr Jennie Brindler was the most compassionate, empathetic, and truly caring person I have ever met. She smoothed the very difficult decision for me and my husband. I felt that I and my dog Zion were in the best of hands at all times. This was the peaceful and serene end that I wanted for my companion. Thank you for making a horrible situation bearable. I know Zion felt no pain and no fear. Thank you so much for your talents and help to let us say goodbye in dignity and love. Thanks!"Val HobbsBrightonFebruary 8, 2020
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Kim Slade"Dr Kim couldn't have been more compassionate and caring with our love Oreo. It was the hardest thing we'll ever have to do and Dr Kim treated us and Oreo with tenderness and understanding. Oreo hated going to the vet and the thought of having his last memories with us being scared at the vets was unacceptable. Dr Kim helped Oreo over the Rainbow Bridge peacefully in his favorite spot on his favorite blanket and we will be eternally grateful."Jennifer O'ConnorCedar KnollsFebruary 8, 2020Oreo's Pet Memorial

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Brad Bates"We can't thank Dr. Brad enough for his patience, compassion, and guidance over the past six months. We could not have made this difficult decision without him, and so appreciated his caring and sensitive approach as we said good-bye to Rooney. The entire process was very peaceful and painless for our beloved bear...we recommend Dr. Brad and his staff to anyone needing hospice care and in-home euthanasia."Michelle DuvalWest ChesterFebruary 8, 2020Rooney's Pet Memorial
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Christina Scudder"Dr Chris was amazing. I want to thank her for the service she provided for our beloved Syd. Putting him to rest was on of the most difficult decisions to make. Dr. Chris's compassionate and loving spirit helped to make this an easier situation and gain acceptance with our decision.

The memorial she eloquently posted was captured after only spending a few minutes with the family. This really shows that Dr. Chris has been gifted and blessed with extraordinary compassion and attentiveness to our feelings and grief.

God Bless you Dr. Chris."
