Lap of Love Veterinarian: Brad Bates"I'm so grateful to Dr. Bates for helping Pip cross over. He was very honest with us about her condition, but very, very compassionate. This was the hardest decision my husband and I had to make, but Dr. Bates guided us through every step of the process. Pip's passing was peaceful. Dr. Bates prevented her suffering from getting worse. It was painful for us, but a blessing for her."Christine EichelbergerNorristownOctober 29, 2019Pip's Pet Memorial
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Allie Prokop"We are so very thankful that our regular vet recommended Laps of Love and Dr. Allie. We knew our Bessie was sick and not getting better. We knew that the time had come, but it didn't make it any easier. She had been a part of the family for 12 years. She had always has a fear of the vets office and we just couldn't bear the thought that her last moments would be so terrifying for her. Laps of Love was a true blessing. Bessie spent the whole day with us and all the things she loved. When Dr. Allie arrived she was so gentle and caring. I truly felt she cared about Bessie. While letting go of her was so hard, we are so thankful that we turned to Laps of Love when the time came. Thanks to Dr. Allie we were able to give Bessie a very peaceful goodbye in her own home that was filled with love and gentleness. Thank you."Rachel WigetRockfordOctober 29, 2019

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Roger Chase"Thank you Dr Roger for your note and for helping Buddy to cross the rainbow bridge yesterday.
It was such a hard process to let our beloved Buddy go but as you noted, he helped us to see that he was ready to go. I don’t think that it would be possible to do it if we didn’t know this.
I am grateful that we could have Bailey and Jack with us to help them process their grief. They have been somewhat subdued today and a bit clingy which think is part of their processing. Perhaps too because they can feel that we need more love.
Thank you again for being so kind and professional to us as we said goodbye to Buddy ️"

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Heather Manfredi"We were at a loss of what to do when our sweet boy Ace (American Eskimo Mini) suddenly took a turn for the worst within 24 hours. It was a Sunday and we knew the only option was the 24 hour emergency Vet, or so we thought. A friends dog had recently crossed the rainbow bridge and we knew they used Lap Of Love. Our poor boy quickly lost the ability to walk and was incontinent and taking him from our home and his comfort zone was the last thing we wanted. We left a message with Lap Of Love and within a half hour Dr. Heather called. Upon her arrival she took the time to sit with us, we laid all the cards on the table describing his symptoms and how quickly he became incapacitated. Dr. Heather took the time to sit on our kitchen floor and comfort our boy, she also gave us the time we needed with him. He painlessly and in our loving arms passed over the rainbow bridge and we were so grateful to have Dr. Heathers support and comfort. We are grateful she helped our boy go with ease, in the comfort of his favorite place, his home. Thank you doesn’t express our gratitude. In loving memory of Ace Cooper Grennan 10/2006-06/2019 forever loved."Jaclyn GrennanMiller PlaceOctober 29, 2019

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Nikki Abdulla"In this extremely difficult time,Nikki came into our home with the softest and warmest heart. She made sure we understood the prognosis and helped us feel comfortable with our decision. She gave us the space we needed but yet made us feel like she was right there with us. She treated our babygirl with such dignity and respect, even after she had taken her last breath. We certainly couldn't have asked for a smoother process, given the circumstances. I'd like to thank Nikki for being so kind hearted to us and to Zoey!"Amanda EckertElizabethtownOctober 28, 2019Zoey's Pet Memorial
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Lori Braun"From the minute that I saw Dr. Lori I knew that the was the angel that God had sent to take my angel to heaven. My late sister’s name was Lori so it was almost as if through Dr. Lori my sis was saying “Come on Charles, it’s my turn to play with you!” Dr. Lori’s kind words, gentle hands and compassionate spirit made the impossible possible. My house is empty but my heart is so full of love and memories. I will miss my sweet boy every day. I am so blessed to have had Charles in my life. I will be forever thankful for Dr. Lori."Kelly CommSalemOctober 28, 2019
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Kristine Campanelli"We cannot say enough about Kristine. Her love, kindness and compassion turned a heart wrenching experience into a beautiful passing. We could not bear to see our beautiful cat suffer. She agreed to help us on a Sunday night in our home. There is no comparison between having to take a sick animal to the vet’s office or saying goodbye in your home. It is wonderful knowing that there are doctors like Kristine to help."NorthportOctober 28, 2019

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Amy Parrish"I cannot begin to say enough about Dr. Amy Parrish. I did not have a clue how this was going to occur. I was so very happy with the service Dr. Amy Parrish and Lap of Love gave us. Customer service at its finest!

Dr. Amy was AMAZING: She walked and explained the process from beginning to end step-by-step. That meant the world to us. She was so warm and loving to my precious furry baby girl. I knew our furry baby was going to be okay because Dr. Amy made her feel so loved.

Thank you so very much Dr. Amy..we will never forget you and the love, kindness and compassion you expressed, displayed and showed us especially my furry baby girl. For that I am for ever grateful to you.

Keep up the great work."

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Casey Choate"HI Dr. Casey,
This past few days have been very difficult without Lili. I come home and don't hear her barking greeting me and telling me she is eager to see me. She house is quiet and somewhat lonely without her, who would've thought a doggie could have left so much emptiness. I also see how sad Cookie is without her friend, Cookie looks for Lili in the back yard and I know she feels lonely and misses Lili a lot too. I wonder how Cookie feels like or what she does all day while I'm at work and it breaks my heart knowing she is also suffering Lili's departure.
I want to let you know how much I appreciate the care you provided us, you allow me to take the time I needed to let Lili go peacefully. I feel like you were Lili's vet of long time and feel reassured Lili was being care for until her very last breath.
Thank you so much for the sympathy card and the poem, the poem is beautiful and speaks the truth of how I feel about my fury child. I'm grateful for all the years I was blessed to have Lili and I know this time of sadness will eventually pass and Cookie and I will be whole again.
Kindly,
Lolis, Eric and Cookie."

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Kiley Cameron"We would like to thank Dr. Cameron and the Lap of Love group for being so professional and caring. I did not know such a service even existed until New Kent Vet suggested their company. It was the best thing we could have done for our loving fur ball, to let her pass at home in my arms. Thank you again for your sincere and compassionate service."David BrinkleyQuintonOctober 28, 2019Echo's Pet Memorial
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Jordan Taheri"Annie was the sweetest dog I have ever encountered in my life and she gave us nearly 14 years of unconditional love. Her passing leaves a whole in our hearts and the most wonderful memories. Dr. Jordan was very understanding and compassionate as we helped our sweet Annie pass over to the other side. One day you will run into my arms again and I love you with all my heart..."John FamaCoral SpringsOctober 28, 2019

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Shannon Cabell"From Saturday night to Sunday morning our sweet pup Sadie took a turn for the worse. We knew we only had a few weeks left but that morning we knew it was time. In desperation I searched the internet to find a vet who would come to the house. We did not want her to be anxious or fearful, so taking her to an emergency vet was out of the question. I found Lap of Love and we called at 10:30am and Dr. Cabell arrived at 1pm. (Exactly the time we were told she would be there.) She was kind, compassionate and explained every step that would be taken to assure Sadie would pass peacefully surrounded by her family.
True to her word, my sweet baby was on the couch in her favorite spot, surrounded by her family and not fearful. It was one of the hardest things to do. Letting go of a beloved pet whom had our hearts for 12 plus years is beyond hurt. The last gift we could give her was to die with peace and respect and Dr. Cabell helped us give her that gift. Dr. Cabell will forever have our gratitude. Lap of Love is such a wonderful organization that is comprised of very special Vets who help our beloved companions to the Rainbow Bridge and we the families survive the saddest moment. Thank you"

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Kim Slade"When the day came for Lola to cross over the rainbow bridge, Dr. Kim was extremely kind. She hugged me the moment we met, calming my fears with that simple gesture. She explained the process, validated my conflicted emotions, and supported us every step of the way. She was so gentle with Lola. And when the time finally came, Lola passed peacefully in my arms. Dr. Kim gave us privacy as we said our last goodbyes. Dr. Kim, thank you for your warm and loving spirit and coaching through the entire experience."Syden AbrenicaParsippanyOctober 27, 2019Lola's Pet Memorial
