Lap of Love Veterinarian: Keri Morgan"Dr. Morgan knew just the right thing to say to encourage us at a time of deep sorry. I didn’t think I could stay through the procedure but she made it a very peaceful process for Cooper and for us."Cathy HartmannBallwinAugust 30, 2019
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Colleen Lambo"Dr. Colleen Lambo was so empathetic. I cried and sobbed and had tears and snot everywhere and she was very patient with me and explained everything she was doing and what was happening. She was really a good match for us because I was a wreck and she is very calm and caring. She brought the basket and minky blanket that she wrapped my baby in and he looked so beautiful wrapped in that basket, I think it really helped to have that as my last visual of him."Danna WarnerMontgomeryAugust 30, 2019Gabriel's Pet Memorial
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Kiley Cameron"I don't think it is possible to express to you how thankful we are for you and the care and consideration you gave our baby girl. For Mike and I, that was one of the hardest things we have ever had to do and in spite of that, you made as comfortable as possible for not only Bailey, but us and Roxy too. Thank you so much. We miss Bailey terribly but know that she is no longer suffering and finally at peace."Crystal CarleyRichmondAugust 30, 2019
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Rene Butler"Dear Dr Rene and Lap of Love

Thank you so much for your caring words. I wish this milestone has lessened my grief, unfortunately, it hasn't. I do know time heals and I'm hopeful that soon my sadness will give way to gratitude, for being blessed to be his Mom. Your gentle and respectful treatment of our baby boy, both before and after, has been shared with many. I've let my vet know as well, the compassion of you and your organization, and it makes them feel more comfortable recommending you to other clients. This letter, marking the one year anniversary, is yet another example of this compassion.

Thank you again for being there when we were in need.

Truly yours,

Sylvia Turner and Brian Adair
Buck's Mom and Dad"

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Elizabeth Merchant"Unfortunately, this is the 3rd time this year I have had to use Lap of Love services but I do not know what I would do without them. Dr. Elizabeth was so kind and patient and obviously very seasoned. I am forever thankful for the staff that can provide this service during such a difficult time. Losing our fur-babies is never any easy thing but it is comforting to know we have this service to rely on."Joellyn NorrieOdessaAugust 29, 2019Phebe's Pet Memorial
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Tina Olivieri"Obviously the experience of putting down your dog is completely heart-wrenching, and we had no idea what to expect. Dr. Tina arrived with her bag and our dogs met her at the gate. She came in and sat down, and was very much not in a rush, which was a relief. That is a little thing, but really, you want to put this off as long as possible, with respect to someone else's time, but you also don't want to feel rushed. She asked us about who our dog was and listened as we tearfully shared our stories. She ran us through the process and let us know what our dog would be going through, and that this time-line was up to us when we were ready. She was very genuine, caring, to both us and our dog. We thanked her for making this painful process so gentle. I would recommend her to anyone, and use her again, nature forbid."Sonja WilliamsLos AngelesAugust 29, 2019
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Keri Morgan"Dr Morgan helped my sweet Floyd off to bacon heaven. She was so compassionate and thoughtful not only to our dog but to us humans. Floyd passed in his own backyard, on his own bed with his parents loving him & heard “you’re such a good boy” until he sweetly and softly fell asleep. Dr Morgan gave us room while guiding us with great empathy. She understood the gravity of the situation and approached the event with care. I can’t say enough about how important it was for us to have his last moments with her. I will be forever grateful."Kristine ScottSt. LouisAugust 29, 2019
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Heather Manfredi"Dr. Heather was amazing with our 16 year old Wheaten, Maddie, she made the worst day of our lives a little less painful. We made the appointment for the next day at 9am with no issues. She came on time and made us all feel at ease with the whole entire thing and informed us on everything during the process. In the future when getting new pets, and when the sad time comes, our whole family will only use Lap of Love for the process."Anne HeagertyHuntingtonAugust 29, 2019
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Christina Scudder"Dr. Scudder was extremely compassionate and gentle with both our beautiful Gunner and ourselves.

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Rachel Klickman"This was one of the hardest decisions we had ever made and we were doubting that it was the right one. With the help of Dr. Rachel we came to the conclusion that indeed we were doing the right thing by Teddy.
Dr. Rachel's compassion is unsurpassed. She made it possible to find solace and peace in what otherwise would have been an unbearable event. She has the gift of knowing exactly what is needed. She is a great person. Her job is hard, but she is the perfect person for it."

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Jessica McAlpin"I just want to thank you all for being so great during a very difficult time. I honestly lost my breath when Dr. McAlpin pulled up and could barely open the door for her, but she took such great care of my dog (and myself) during his euthanasia. (I feel like my dog's transition was easier for him than it was for me.)

I was in such a haze during the entire process that I don't feel like I thanked her enough. I'd also like to thank all of the people I spoke with on the phone. Everyone at Lap of Love was amazing. Thank you all so much for giving us this chance to say goodbye."

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Kimberly Carper"Dr. Kim was kind, warm, and understanding in a moment when my heart was being utterly shattered. She gently petted Dakota, as Dakota passed her toy back and forth, before Dakota finally fell asleep on her toy. Dakota went peacefully and happy that she got to meet and play with one last person. For an absolutely horrible moment in my life, she made Dakota's last moments the best they could be and I am grateful for her help."Andrew GrubbManorAugust 29, 2019Dakota's Pet Memorial

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Kristen Miller"There are no words to express appreciation for what was done by your agency and doctor. When I realized that Buddy was declining more than I thought, your agency made the appointment as soon as possible. They came to the house which was a beautiful experience. My sister and I were able to lay down with my Buddy on the living room floor and be present during the last moments of life. That was truly spiritual. My sister and I were able to carry my Buddy to the car which is our family tradition - Buddy carried me and I wanted to make sure he was carried at the time of his passing. Dr. Kristin was professional. There were no time constraints. She was soft spoken. She explained the whole process. She was ultra compassionate. I could not be more happy with her and your services. I have told everyone about your program which I had no idea about. My sister has two dogs that are coming to end of life. She will be using your services and assistance. I thank God for this service. Thanks SOOOO much!!"Mary LawrenceEast MeadowAugust 28, 2019
