Lap of Love Veterinarian: Jessica McAlpin"We are so thankful for Lap of Love and Dr. Jessica. She was so friendly and considerate....I loved how she made herself at home on the hair covered floor with us as Murphy went through this process.

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Kristen Miller"Dr. Kristen was so incredible kind and caring during such a difficult time for me and my family. To say goodbye to a furry friend that I had grown up with for the last 17 years was so painful, but she explained everything and gave us plenty of time. When it was difficult to know what was happening, Dr. Kristen was able to assure us that this was a comfortable and safe way for our cat to move on and out of his pain. She was so calm and soothing, and she handled my best friend with so gently and with so much care. She was so accommodating, as we knew we needed it to be done in his favorite place, outside in the grass. I cannot thank her enough for making this trying experience just a little easier."Katherine DevineNew Hyde ParkAugust 25, 2019
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Shannon Cabell"Dr. Shannon was very kind and patient during the whole time she was here. I am so glad I was able to do the procedure in the house in private. It was very peaceful and Dr. Shannon was very respectful of my feelings and did not rush anything. I would definitely recommend her and Lap of Love. Thank you again, Dr. Shannon, for what you did for both me and Lily at a very difficult time."Ann RobertsMonroe TownshipAugust 25, 2019Lily's Pet Memorial
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Annie Dion-Byrd"Dr. Annie was wonderful. She was comforting the whole time she was here. She explained each step she was going to do before so I was aware of what was going on. She was very gentle with Fergie and was able to provide her peace after two terrible weeks in the pet hospital. I'm so grateful that I could let Fergie come home for her final days and set her free here."Daniel DormanOrlandoAugust 25, 2019Fergie's Pet Memorial

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Katie Stender"She was the nicest most compassionate person that I could have ever met. She listened to me talk about Dingo and how much he meant to me. She let me cry and blubber, and let me have all the time in the world to be with him. Thank you so much for giving this gift to me and my DIngo. You are doing God's work."Martha KennyjacksonvilleAugust 24, 2019Dingo's Pet Memorial

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Christina Guillory"We are fairly new to the area, so I had called around to see about a mobile service for our aging St. Bernard. From the initial phone call a couple months ago, to Kelly that I spoke with Thursday morning, to Dr. Guillory coming to my house, EVERYONE was so professional and SO caring! I do not know many people down here and my husband works out of town during the week, so Kelly was even nice enough to have Tim from the crematory come with Dr. Guillory so he could help with getting our 120 pound baby out to the vehicle when it was all done. I think the best thing about the service provided was the patience that Dr. Guillory had with me and the love that she showed Zulu. I have told everyone I know about how Zulu got to eat a chocolate cupcake while getting the sedative - and she never ate people food or chocolate (obviously), and let me tell you, she was in HEAVEN eating that chocolate cupcake!!! I want to thank your company for being so compassionate and so professional!"Courtney BerlyakLeague CityAugust 24, 2019
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Becky Frank"Lap of Love has the kindest staff. They offer these services other vets do not. They help our fur family to pass with dignity. Although Reggie passed before Dr. Becky arrived, it didn't take away from the kindness and compassion she showed Reggie and my husband and I. I suggest their service to many. Without them, I believe this experience would have been so much worse. Their aftercare staff is just as wonderful."Sue MillheimCoplayAugust 24, 2019Reggie's Pet Memorial
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Lorry Jolitz"As difficult as it is for any pet lover to make the decision when it is time to have our pets cross over, our experience with all associates we spoke with at Lap of Love were beyond caring, thoughtful, patient and kind. Our first contact was Lisa at Lap of Love. Lisa was so patient and thoughtful and listened with great compassion. When Dr. Lorry arrived (she kindly called beforehand with an eta) she was calm, quiet and very concerned about making sure our sweet Golden girl Maggie May (15 1/2) was comfortable. Dr. Lorry gave us as much time as we needed with our girl. Dr. Lorry greeted Maggie May with love and care. She explained every step of the process beforehand and we are so thankful to have had her here in our home to help our girl cross the rainbow bridge. Thank you Lap of Love and Dr. Lorry for your compassion and love."Lisa CuffChinoAugust 24, 2019
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Shannon Cabell"We want to thank you for the lovely card and email message. Even though this was one of the saddest days for the three of us, you allowed our Smooches to pass safely and peacefully in William's arms. There are no words to express our gratitude. You are a beautiful human being and exceptional doctor.
Thank you..."How beautiful a day can be when kindness touches it!" - George Elliston

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Loren Gassler"Thank you Dr. Gassler for being a compassionate caring sweet person. Lap of love was the best ever and I will always refer or if I ever do get another dog this would be the way I would go. My dog Annie was in the comfort of her own home surrounded by the ones who loved her and she wasn't scared or upset as if you were to go to an office. She went so peacefully and calm. I can't thank them enough. Thank you Lap of Love for giving my dog Annie a beautiful transition. Fly high to the rainbow bridge with your angel wings. Until we meet again."Donna VillanoSpring HillAugust 23, 2019
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Tina Olivieri"Lap of Love provides an exceptional service. We were not sure if it was time for our Zorro to go, but Dr. Tina came out to our home and provided clarity. It was a moment we wished would never come, but we were at peace and with Zorro in the end. We know we did the right thing thanks to Dr. Tina’s outstanding compassion. Thank you, Lap of Love!"Aurelio AlbaLong BeachAugust 23, 2019

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Kimberly Moen"Dr Kimberly Moen was a Godsend. We called Lap of Love around 11:00 a.m. she arrived at 1:00p.m.
Taco passed about a half hour before she arrived. I was still holding him and said, I am not sure if he is dead. She handled everything with care, compassion and grace.
We were very glad Taco did not need her assistance in transitioning, but we are sure that she would have made it smooth and comfortable.
As she helped us emotionally, she was meticulous in her professionalism, providing documents for the care plan Taco was on.
We are very grateful she was our special vet, in such a difficult and intimate moment."

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Leanne Mathew"Dr. Leanne,

I just want to say thank you so much for the compassion you showed to me and my family when we said goodbye to our Xena. It's now been a month since she left us and I am still caught by surprise to not see her in the living room or to hear her barking to go outside.

In what was truly one of the worst moments of my life, I cannot tell you how much it meant to me to have experienced your professionalism and your kindness. It brings me such comfort to know that Xena left this world, she was treated with care and compassion. Her ashes are now home and we are settling into our new day-to-day life without her lively, demanding, beautiful presence.

I just thank you from the bottom of my heart and commend you for bearing witness to the most heartbreaking moments in the lives of your clients. I am so appreciative and so very grateful."

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Brad Bates"Dear Dr. Brad,

Thank you for your objective and compassionate counseling. It was a tremendous help and comfort to us to have you come to the house for a hospice evaluation for Rex, our beloved 3.5-year-old lab. We are grateful that you were there to help us understand that the time had come to give Rex a peaceful passing. It was especially difficult to lose our little buddy to such an aggressive form of cancer at such a young age. While our hearts are broken, we cannot thank you enough for being there for Rex and us. You were there for us when our 12.5-year-old St. Bernard, Cognac, went into liver failure, and we knew that we wanted to call you when faced with Rex's cancer progression.

Sincerely,


Diana Martens"

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Elizabeth Merchant"Dr. Elizabeth was so compassionate when helping me with Gus’ passing. I’m so thankful that I was able to connect with her. She had been Gus’ vet in the past, so she knew about everything the little man had been through. I hope she knows how much her work and love are appreciated. Thank you for making Gus’ last moments peaceful and dignified. Warmest regards, Peggy."Peggy GehmanBrandonAugust 22, 2019Gus's Pet Memorial
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Hannah Moloney"It was one of the more difficult times in my life, I cried like a little boy losing my sweet Duke. But Dr. Moloney was great and had perfect bedside manor treating Duke wonderful to help him be at rest. Thank you

Thank you Dr. Moloney and Lap of Love for coming on such short notice, a Sunday evening also! While it was so hard for me to watch Duke go so quickly, fast and unplanned. I was happy you were there to stop the suffering of my sweet Duke at home, comfortable in his own surroundings with my Mother and Sister.

Thanks,
Justin"

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Jessica Wilbourne"We recently made the very hard decision to euthanize our beloved collie of 12 years. Our vet recommended Lap of Love. The care and compassion that Dr. Jessica Wilbourne showed was incredible and exceeded our expectations. She made a very sad personal life event beautiful. Our family dog died outside on our back patio surrounded by family. Couldn't ask for better end for a wonderful family dog. We thank Dr. Jessica. xo"Erin SjoholmRydalAugust 22, 2019
