Lap of Love Veterinarian: Kim Slade"Kim was kind, compassionate and loving. Our experience-though sad was made beautiful with everything being done in our own home, where Rapheal was most familiar and around everybody he touch with his wonderful life. Kim's words of tenderness made it special for us and we would highly recommend this service to anyone that needs it. There is something to be said for having the house call to make it special for our pugs. Thank you."Damon MohrleRingwoodFebruary 11, 2020Rapheal's Pet Memorial
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Lauren Peek, DVM"Dr. Lauren Peek from Laps of Love, Clermont Florida came to the home and was supportive of my decision. She was very gentle with Gizmo and informed me of every step she would take. I am glad that she consoled me and left me to say my final goodbye. There is no easy way to make this decision, but having a person who understands your grief is appreciated and welcome. I am grateful for you Dr. Peek. You are a wonderful women and I will never forget you.."Shirley FishwickWheatonFebruary 11, 2020Gizmo's Pet Memorial
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Sally Lynch"We could not have imagined a better way for Falcor to cross the rainbow bridge. Dr. Sally was beyond incredible. Making sure Falcor was comfortable and relaxed and also checking in on all of us. She talked to Falcor the whole time, being our voice in a time where we were voice less. She was so nice and compassionate, we are truly greatful for the beautiful memory she has given us during such a difficult time."ALISHA AULTROCKLANDFebruary 11, 2020Falcor's Pet Memorial
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Betsy King"It has been several months since Dr. Betsy helped us let "Beauty" our beautiful, black, blue-eyed lab/pit mix out of her pain.
There never was a sweeter, more obedient, grateful rescued dog and she added so much to our home and hearts. It was heartbreaking
to let her go, but more so to watch her in pain from bone cancer. She nibbled on treats as the first tranquilizer relaxed her, then laid down
her sweet head to sleep for the final injection. Betsy was so kind and gentle (with all of us). Not for one second have I regretted this
decision (or the money) in spite of a sad mourning season without our dear Beauty. I received her ashes the following week in a lovely
cherry wood urn/box with her name in gold. Only 3 months later (in January), we had more sorrow as Beauty's dear "brother" Beast took
his last breath. Even though there was no euthanasia, Lap of Love helped me contact the same cremation company they use, Companah Pet
Cremation, so we were able to get an identical cherry urn for Beast. They now rest side-by-side on the mantle and in the memories of our
hearts. Thank you, Betsy and Lap of Love!"

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Heather Manfredi"Watching our dog slowly getting sick from cancer and trying to figure out the right time to set him free was the hardest decision we have had to make. Everyone at Lap of Love was so understanding and caring. We requested Dr. Heather because she had helped another family member and we knew how loving she is. She comforted us about our difficult decision but what was amazing was how my dog Bosco immediately took to her and started giving her kisses. She spent time with us and Bosco and waited until we were ready. She made his final moments so peaceful. I can never thank her enough for giving us so much understanding and peace during this horrible time."Pattianne GuccioneWantaghFebruary 11, 2020
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Cathy Berquist"From the first phone call to Lap of Love to the end was very compassionate and understanding. It has to be one of the hardest decisions we have ever made. Dr. Cathy and Dr. Cassie were both very nice and gentle with our Dudley. Thank you for making this heartbreaking moment as peaceful as possible."Lisa AhueroDunedinFebruary 11, 2020Dudley's Pet Memorial
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Megan Wehrwein"Dr. Megan was wonderful during this difficult time. She took her time and showed she really cared. She explained everything she was going to do and made sure I understood the process. Dr. Megan even sat on the floor with me as I said goodbye to my fur baby Max. I don’t think I would’ve gotten through this without someone like Dr. Megan being there to help me. I am glad places like lap of love exist because taking my for baby to a hospital would’ve been very difficult for me. I want to say thank you to Dr. Megan for being there and thank you to the person she brought with her for their kindness and compassion. Max was my first fur baby that I owned and had to make the hard decision to put to sleep. So this was really hard for me. Dr. Megan Took her time during the process. She gave me time to say goodbye to my fur baby and waited until I was ready. So thank you Dr. Megan for everything you did for me, my family, and my fur baby Max."Karen SchwartzTampaFebruary 11, 2020
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Caroline Kiert"After 15 years with our beloved Roxy, our family had to make the difficult decision to let her go last week. We decided we wanted to let her be at home so that she could be as comfortable as possible. From the moment I made the call to schedule the appointment, I was met with compassion and kindness. When Dr. Caroline arrived at our home, she was calming, took the time to get to know my family, and to get to know Roxy. She explained the process and what to expect and let us go at our own pace. For a Friday night appointment, she never made us feel rushed, and took the time to assist us in getting all the pawprints we wanted for my husband and I, and our adult children. Dr. Caroline was very professional and I knew our baby was in the best of hands. She was a bright spot in our very dark day. I am so pleased with Lap of Love, and grateful for the care we received from Dr Caroline. This was definitely one of life's hardest moments, but was able to be at peace knowing Roxy received the best of care and was made as comfortable as possible .in her final moments"Sara CovarrubiasElk GroveFebruary 11, 2020
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Anna Champagne"Saying goodbye to our precious Sugar was one of the most difficult things we have ever faced. Dr. Anna was so incredibly patient and kind and allowed us to take our time through the process. Sugar was able to be at home with the humans and dogs that she loved. Thank you to Lap of Love and Dr. Anna."Elena LopezSeffnerFebruary 11, 2020Sugar's Pet Memorial
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Aspen Perretta"Dr. Aspen Peretta was on call the morning I called Lap of Love after searching online. It had been a sleepless night and I felt my sweet dog was beginning to suffer. Dr. “Aspen” could not have been more loving, attentive, and kind with Carrie AND my family. My friend was with us for support & had a precious pet euthanized 3 years ago. She was so impressed with our doctor, as were we. This was my beloved dog/family member and my greatest fear was that SHE would be afraid. She wasn’t. She was calm, didn’t bark at the dr., and was so peaceful after receiving a sedative injection (she never flinched). Her death was peaceful and she was given the dignity I know she deserved. I’ve never had a veterinarian with such compassion (& a great hug for me). I would like to say that the intake staff who made my appointment listened to me sobbing and were so comforting. They all treated us like family and we felt as if Carrie was the only priority in their day. I’m forever grateful.
Susan"

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Elizabeth Merchant"From the first phone call, until the end, the women on this team are pure angels. How you can be so kind to strangers and at such an ugly time, I have no idea. But bless you for doing this work. I know it must not be easy. But it is so much more compassionate than a stressed out anxious end at the vet office. This service is worth every penny."Saint PetersburgFebruary 10, 2020
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Allie Prokop"Highly and wholeheartedly recommend this service. From the first phone call to follow-up calls and emails; followed by the day of the visit and the thoughtfulness, kindness, and gentleness expressed throughout; to the communication afterwards -- all could not have been a better experience. Dr. Allie and the staff at Lap of Love were compassionate, patient, understanding, and loving during one of life's most difficult decisions. We hated saying goodbye to our sweet dog Lucy, but I'll always be grateful for choosing Lap of Love to help us."Becky HancockKnoxvilleFebruary 10, 2020
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Hannah Moloney"Dr. Hannah was so kind, gentle, genuine and compassionate. She helped us remember Blackie's early, playful days, teasing out memories I'd forgotten and stories that I hadn't told my daughter (who was present). She explained the procedure so that we knew exactly what to expect. Most of all, she affirmed our decision that had weighed so heavily on my heart for months. While it was incredibly hard, she lightened the load just enough to ease us through it all. I am very grateful."Julia MaywaldSeattleFebruary 10, 2020Blackie's Pet Memorial
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Lisa Rodin"Dear Dr Lisa,
My family and I really appreciate your caring for our Snickers during her last moments. I really didn’t know what to expect, but you explained everything in such a loving manner I immediately knew it was going to be okay.
I am truly blessed to have a loving family and we are truly blessed to have found you through Lap of Love. ❤️"

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Kiley Cameron"I can’t recommend Dr. Cameron enough. I called Sunday morning about putting down our 14 year old pup Dixie and she managed to make her way to us that evening. Dr. Cameron was a huge source of relief as soon as she arrived. Polite, courteous, and clearly has a deep love for animals. From start to finish, everything was perfect and we are very grateful to her. Highly recommend"MechanicsvilleFebruary 10, 2020
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. She was my late husband's dog also so I felt I lost another part of him also. I miss her but didn't want her suffering and pain to get worse. Thank you so much again."LehiFebruary 10, 2020

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
