Helping Families Honor the Lives Of Those They Love
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Kara Fuchs"We are very grateful for Dr. Kara Fuchs and all Lap of Love staff. Dr. Kara was incredibly kind and thoughtful. She took the sting out of what was one of the hardest days we have experienced, saying goodbye to our 16 year old Min Pin, Yoshi. The care she provides is wonderful, knowing that Yoshi was able to have a peaceful exit in the comfort of her own home surrounded by love has helped me in the grieving process. Highly recommended."Kenny FuntColumbia HeightsFebruary 6, 2020
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Dana Lewis"Gus was diagnosed with multiple cancers in his left lung, abdomen and enlarged lymph glands! We spent time at NCSU Oncology, but my best buddy was not going to recover! I contacted Lap of Love and was able to spend the weekend loving and hugging on the best friend and buddy for almost ten short years! Dr. Dana Lewis came to my home on Monday, 01/20/20, and was so kind and answered all my questions! Basically Gus went to sleep, no struggle, no suffering! I was able to hold and pet on him til the end! I’m still missing my friend and hope to see him again some day!"Johnny JonesWendellFebruary 6, 2020Gus Jones's Pet Memorial
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Mary Devlin"When I found out about Lap of Love services I knew this was what my family needed. Having our pet chow Tito pass in the comfort of his home and with his family around him was perfect. Dr. Mary Devlin was wonderful, so professional, so comforting, she felt our pain with us and helped us get through it. I wish this service was available when my previous pet passed. Thank you Lap of Love and thank you Dr. Mary Devlin for helping make a sad moment into a celebration of life."Edward YeeBrooklineFebruary 6, 2020
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Lisa Rodin"Dr. Lisa was amazing . She walked in and immediately sat cross legged on the floor by Sophie’s bed and began soothing her and loving on her.
Dr. Lisa gently walked us through this sad process step by step and allowed us to grieve well along the way.
She made this lose easier to handle and our memory is sweet because Sophie was made comfortable.
The follow up messages were a help with healing too.
Thank you from our hearts Dr. Lisa."

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Sue Mowatt"I can’t express how thankful I am for Lap of Love and Dr. Mowatt. The company was very accommodating to us on short notice and Dr. Mowatt was incredibly professional from the moment she arrived. It was very apparent that she takes pride in her work. I appreciate that this company wants the best for your loved one in such a difficult time. To be able to say goodbye to my sweet boy at home instead of causing him more pain and anxiety was the best I could have asked for under such difficult circumstances. Thank you so much Dr. Mowatt."Yara BistrainFair OaksFebruary 6, 2020

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Dana Lewis"My Sleeping Beauty-my sweet sweet Rubyjane! We said our goodbye and Ruby's best friend Izzy come to my home and he never left her side until she rested in her beautiful basket. I miss my sweetness terribly and still cry when I have to speak about her transition.

Thank you Dr. Dana! I did not know what to expect as Rubyjane was my first and only fur baby dog. I wanted everything perfect for her: the white bedspread, scented lavender and classical music playing. You provided just the right words, gentle explanation of the process and quietly sat crosslegged on the floor until we loved her over the rainbow bridge. I can't thank you enough for being there and serving us during this most difficult time. I have been telling and will continue to tell loved ones and friends about the wonderful service provided by Lap of Love.

I miss my sweet Rubyjane, but I have no regrets because Lap of Love was there."

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Casey Choate"Dr. Casey was amazing. She was kind and gentle and we, and our family, were very comfortable with her.

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Jennie Brindler"Dr. Jennie was awesome! I knew Ollie would be feisty and despite some anti-anxiety drugs, he was barking and carrying on as usual. Dr. Jennie got down to his level to make him feel a little more at east. During the process, Ollie got a little sick (he needed some additional anti-anxiety medication) and Dr. Jennie didn't hesitate to clean it right up. This was certainly something she did not need to do.

She talked me through the process, gave me some time alone with Ollie before she took him., and was very sweet to my feisty little guy. Anyone who finds themselves having to make an end-of-life decision for their pet, can rest assure that Dr. Jennie will provide them with the utmost comfort and dignity."

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Caroline Kiert"Words can not express the emotions one goes through when their beloved furry member of their family has to be euthanized.
It is a difficult decision, but once we realize and accept that we have to let go so that our babies are free of pain, it does get better.

Our experience with Lap of Love, specifically Dr. Caroline, was everything we could have asked for. She was wonderful; empathetic, friendly, professional... Our entire family found her calming nature very comforting. She continued to check in on us and offer assistance even after her visit.

Thank you, Dr. Caroline, for helping our Amapola cross the rainbow bridge with dignity and surrounded by her family."

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Jessica Gibson"We can't thank Dr. Jessica enough for coming out to the house on her day off to help Pippin cross over. He had been doing well for his age but then took a downturn on Sunday night.

More than anything, we very much wanted Pippin to cross over peacefully at home surrounded by his loved ones. Dr. Jessica's willingness to help allowed him to do so and made this very stressful and heartbreaking day that much easier to bear. She was very kind, compassionate and understanding.

Thank you very much, Dr. Jessica."

My boy went peacefully in his home and for that I am forever grateful.

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Dawnetta Woodruff"Dawnetta, thank you so much for being there for me and Honey. Honey was so comfortable with you, she thought I had one of my girlfriends over. During your visit, you were our friend. ❤ I cannot thank you enough for the support you gave me before, during, and after your time with us. Thank you for the gift that I was able to wrap and send home with Charlotte today. You made one of the hardest days of my life so much less painful and for that I am forever grateful for you. I am struggling to talk about my feelings about Honey being gone today, but it has been so easy to speak about how wonderful your services were. Thank you for sharing your heart with pets and people who are hurting. You and your team are truly angels. With all my heart, thank you. ❤❤"J SSt. LouisFebruary 4, 2020
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Caroline Kiert"This is real hard for me to write! Please forgive my spelling and grammar! Not my strong point. I have had my Baby Miss Mainia for over 15 years . She is a smooth coat Jack Russell. My husband and I took her everywhere with us . She was our baby and best friend! My husband passed away a little over 3 years ago and she helped me so much ! So unconditional love and support. Soon after my husband passed she got cancer. She was strong and Beautiful! It got to the point last monday that I had to let her go to rest ! I was holding on to her for me. How selfish was that ! So I made the decision to call and have her put to rest.
I called and Dr. Caroline came out the same day . I could never thank her enough ! Dr. Caroline was So caring, loving and helped me so so much ! So blessed I had her and this company!! She asked me if I had any questions and I did and she answered each one so lovely! Even though this was so hard and tragic for me ! Crying during the hole process ! Mainia was put to rest with dignity, love , tenderness and compassion!!!
I am so blessed to have had Mainia in my life and so blessed to have Dr. Caroline with me !! I could never thank this company and her enough !!!

Much love
Renette"
