Helping Families Honor the Lives Of Those They Love
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Brad Bates"Thank you Dr. Brad for helping us say goodbye to our dear Greta in the best possible way. Your calm and gentle demeanor made a very difficult time a little easier. We are still grieving but it helps to know that Greta was able to go so gently and without pain or fear in the comforts of her own home. For that we will always be very grateful."Bronwyn ReicePhiladelphiaJanuary 15, 2014
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Laura Theobald, DVM"Laura was very kind and gentle with my cat. It meant a lot to us to spend Mama's last moments with her in peace at home. She went quietly and without pain. I am very thankful for the experience. Hopefully, I won't have to use this service for at least another 10 years for my two dogs. I am thankful this option is available to my animal friends. Sincerely, Kathy Powell"kathy powellhuntersvilleJanuary 13, 2014Mama's Pet Memorial
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Vanessa Olenick, DVM"I was frantic, crushed inside and trying to come to terms with what I had to do to help my girl, our Indiana, who was fading. I contacted lap of love and made an appointment with Vanessa. We prepared and had friends and family say good bye. I could not have wished for a more gentle and peaceful way to say good bye to Indiana, she was very special to us, for 15 plus years she was our angel, and for her to have such a sweet passing, with such care and tenderness was more than I could ask for. Dr. Vanessa knew the real pain was probably ours and she guided us through the process masterfully, with compassion and empathy. Thank you, the service you provide is not easy, but for us it was a god send, thank you Vanessa for taking care of our baby girl."Stephen KilpAbingtonJanuary 13, 2014Indiana's Pet Memorial

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Mary Gardner"This was the most amazing service I have ever received! In such a horrible time, the love and kindness exuding from Dr. Mary Gardner was phenomenal! She was able to help me and my corgi, Starbucks, be as comfortable as possible. She explained everything step-by-step and was prepared with everything needed. I only wish that my other corgi, Latte, who passed tragically and by surprise back in 2011, could have passed as peacefully as Starbucks did with Lap of Love and Dr. Mary Gardner."Erica DuranNewport BeachJanuary 13, 2014Starbucks's Pet Memorial

Dr. Amanda reassured me that I was making the right choice for Berry. Berry fell "asleep" in my arms while I sat in one of her favorite chairs.

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Katie Stender"To Dr. Katie,
I can't even begin to discribe what you did for my husband and myself on Jan 3rd, but more importantly what you did for our beloved Sneakers. We have had to make this difficult decision a number of times but this time we needed it to be different. The caring, compassion and empathy that you showed us was beyond the bounds of Vet and patient, it came straight from your heart. We gave our girl a good life but you gave us something much more, a quiet, respectable, and loving passing for our sweet one. You gave us the chance to give to back to her for all that she gave to us for 21 years. We will forever be grateful."
