Lap of Love Veterinarian: Hannah Moloney"Dr. Hannah was incredible and the peace she brought to Mahlea and into our home couldn’t have come at a better time. She was so respectful and barely made her presence known, but slipped in quietly to help Mahlea make her transition.
Dr. Hannah was also along for the journey over nearly 3 months and was so responsive to our worries, fears, and needs. Thank you, Dr. Hannah. Your warmth and kindness allowed us to get through such a heart wrenching experience."

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Kristine Campanelli"On October 19, 2019 the time came for us to lay to rest our beloved Abby. It was the most difficult decision and phone call to make. Lap of love was truly amazing. I called at 7:00am on the dot, when they open. I couldnt even speak. The receptionist on the other end was so warm and caring that once I coaught my breath I told her about Abby. She was so accomidating. We chose the best time for us for that day. Dr Kristine called on her way over, she was sincere and truly caring. When she arrived, of course our emotions were heightened as the time was nearing for us. Dr Kristine came in, soft spoken, compassionate, spoke with all us. GAve us the time we needed, was extremtly patient with us and allowed us to have as much time as we needed. Abby had 3 furry siblings that Dr Kristine helped along also. Abby passed away in my husbands arms, surrounded by love, kisses, warm words from her human family. It was emotional and at the same time peaceful. We were in our home, on our bed, in her favorite humans arms. We sobbed once she was gone and again Dr Kristine let us have our time. We began telling stories about our beautiful cherished pup. Dr Kristine wrapped Abby up is a warm blanket, placed her in a beautiful basket. We all said our last goodbyes including the furry siblings who sniffed her like crazy. My husband had the honors of carrying Abby out to Dr Kristines car, placed her gently in the back. We gave our farewells. We are looking forward to getting her remains, we miss her so much. We once had 4 and now there are 3, its so different not having her here but we are so thankful to lap of love and Dr Kristine for their work and much needed services."Rich & Michele MorrisonPort Jefferson StationOctober 26, 2019
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Regan Harp"We've had to say goodbye to several cats and dogs over the years and have always done it at home whenever possible.
Having been through this a few times, I can say that this was the "best" of these experiences we've had. I put best in quotes because it's odd to quantify something like this with a word like best, but I imagine most reading this will know what I mean.
From the first phone call to the end of the appointment, everything was handled as kindly and thoughtfully as could be done. Kristin and Karen (I believe this is the right name of the person I spoke with the first time I called), whom I spoke to on the phone were both patient and understanding as I sobbed and rambled my way through my questions and then making the appointment.

Dr. Harp made saying goodbye to our beloved boy go as easily as something like this can go. He was kind, compassionate and treated our boy like he were his own. Dr. Harp was so gentle and respectful and gave Otis a dignified and peaceful passing.
He made a very painful, very hard day go as well as it could for us and our Otis and we are forever grateful to him for that.

From the bottom of our broken hearts, thank you, Dr. Harp.
----Brandee and Andrew"

Lap of Love Veterinarian: George Croskey"When we realized there was nothing else we could do for our cat, Meeko, we called Lap of Love. Meeko was very sick and I could not bear to take him to the vet to do this. Dr. George helped us through this entire process and was extremely understanding and kind. It felt like she was a friend. She treated Meeko with the love and respect he deserved in his final moments. We held him the whole time and I felt like he felt no pain and he got to go in peace. I couldn’t have asked for such a horrible thing to have gone any better. Dr. George was extremely compassionate and I am thankful for her help in this difficult time.
Meeko was the best cat and I am so sad we had to let him go so soon."

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Jordan Taheri"Miss Kitty was 19 years old, and was very set in her ways (when she actually was when I I got her at 10 weeks old.) She was an interesting character, smart and loyal and loving to those she deemed worthy. I was her person, more than she was my cat , Even though I knew she was at the end of her life and I knew it was time I was still so reluctant to let go. Lap of love made a difficult thing for both of us unmeasurably easier. Dr. Jordan eased my fear that it wasn’t the right time, he left the decision to me but he also helped me understand the realities of what she was experiencing. She was able to be in her own place, surrounded by love , and I know she wasn't stressed or even the least bit upset. I can’t recommend Dr. Jordan highly enough, to do justice to his compassion, and sensitivity ."Patrice ProvitolaLauderdale by the SeaOctober 26, 2019
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Elizabeth Hilton"Dr. Liz is one the most humane and empathetic people I have ever met. She was extremely patient and walked me through one of the most difficult decisions I have ever had to make in my life. My Dakota never suffered throughout the whole procedure and she was treated so lovingly and with the utmost respect. Dr. Liz allowed me all of the time needed to say goodbye and reflect on my 22 years with my dear friend. I will miss exploring the outdoors, sharing an ice cream cone, and having you next to me during all our in home activities and always remember how much you are loved... Thank you again Dr. Liz for your gentleness and kindness and your loving words to Dakota while she crossed over...Namaste and much respect~ Barbara Hunt"Barbara HuntCroton on HudsonOctober 26, 2019
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Caroline Kiert"Our Ginger was with us for 16 years. It may seem like a long life for a cat, but not nearly long enough for her family that loves her. She was found as a kitten dumped on a freeway bridge and she had a heart big enough to trust another human again. She strived to behave perfectly, she loved to be in nature. Smell flowers, sleep under a shady bush, feel the sun warmly caressing her body and soul. I called her my red head because she also had no issue with quickly addressing anything that I was doing that didn't agree with her with a tapping tail or paw tap to me. I loved that. She opened her heart to new kitty members of the family although she preferred being the only "child". She was a perfectly beautiful soul and deeply loved. She fought kidney disease bravely and always focused on the things she loved more than the struggles of her disease. This made it very difficult towards the end of her fight because as soon as we saw signs of the end, she would fight to live life and please her family. We were recommend Lap of Love through our veterinarian and found every single person we came in contact with to be extremely patient and compassionate. Lap of Love became our "life line" to assisting us from this point on. When her final day came, Dr. Caroline Kiert was an amazing gift to all of us. She gave us more expertise, compassion, and time than I ever expected. She made friends with Ginger first. She allowed Ginger to pass in the place she loved the most, her backyard. She spent as much time before and after Ginger's passing as we wanted. She offered any follow-up she could provide in terms of encouragement and support. We received a gift on a difficult day with Lap of Love and Dr. Caroline. I strongly recommend Dr. Caroline Kiert and Lap of Love to any others who are in need. Their services will assist from deciding the right time to a peaceful passing. My beautiful memories of our Ginger's life are forever. Her passing is somehow filled with peace and warmth I did not think possible. I am deeply grateful."Lisa BurnsRancho Cordova,. CAOctober 26, 2019
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Lorry Jolitz"Dr. Lorry was amazing. She explained everything. It was so much less stressful than going to the vet's office. Our Sunny died peacefully and with dignity. The other dogs were able to see her before she was taken away. We had Sunny for over 14 years, it was such a blessing to do this in the comfort of our home. Thank you so much!"Erin PopeRiversideOctober 26, 2019

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Jessica Bollinger"Your kind and loving care made it easier for Maisy and we greatly appreciate the respect and dignity you gave her. It is so difficult to let her go, and it's one of the most painful things we’ve ever had to go through, but we’re really glad it was you who was here to help us. Thank you so much."Patty Chapman & Jeff DahlChanhassenOctober 25, 2019
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Heather Manfredi"After 13 months of treating our dog for kidney failure, we realized that he was done fighting. Our vet's office recommended Lap of Love and they made an extremely difficult time bearable. From the first phone call to the final goodbyes to our beloved hound, the entire experience was one of caring, patience and comfort. Dr. Heather was so kind and patient, we felt she had always been our dog's vet, although she had just met him, and in the worst circumstances. Bruce the dog left us on September 7th, and although some time has passed, just typing this makes me cry. The one thing I know is that I have no regrets about his last moments. He was at home, outside on the deck, surrounded by his family (including the cat!). There was nothing medical about it, which, after the long illness, hospital stays, daily subcutaneous fluids, etc., was exactly what we all needed. He passed peacefully, surrounded by love, thanks to Lap of Love."Abigail OrshefskyPort WashingtonOctober 25, 2019
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Abra Osorio"Dr. Abra was such a blessing on our last day with Elvis. I can not recommend her and Lap of Love enough. Dr. Abra brought such kindness and compassion to our home. She explained everything well and was so sweet to Elvis. She spent time listening to our heartbreak and reassured our decision. Elvis was able to relax in his favorite spot when he passed. The logistics of such an emotional time could not have gone better. Thank you Dr. Abra and Lap of Love."Caitlin RichardNashvilleOctober 25, 2019Elvis's Pet Memorial
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Jessica Bollinger"Dr. Jessica was exactly what we needed. She was so empathetic and took her time with us. She saw how much Rudy was struggling and helped me be at peace with my decision to euthanize. Rudy was treated with love and respect. I am so happy he is not suffering anymore. Thank you for you kindness and assistance."Rachel DStillwaterOctober 25, 2019Rudolph “rudy” Valentino's Pet Memorial
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Jessica Bollinger"I wanted to thank you for making Raven’s last moments the best they could be. And for reassuring us that it was the right thing to do. I don’t know how you do what you do day after day, but it’s a beautiful thing even though it’s one of the most difficult times for those of us who are lucky enough to be loved by a pet. Raven was a truly amazing dog. She was the most intuitive and demonstratively caring dogs I have ever had the pleasure to know. Even on her last day, she was trying to comfort me because I was crying about her. I hope Raven is still munching on nutter butters somewhere."Brenda MillerMinnetonkaOctober 25, 2019

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Christina Hampton"I wanted to thank you all, especially Dr. Christina Hampton- for making my very loved dog Charlie have a gentle, calm passing. I didn't even know about home euthanasia, and had no idea it was affordable.
Charlie was sick from another illness, so he was weak and frail. There was a fire at our complex, and in the chaos and confusion, Charlie slipped and fell into a ravine as we were running to another area. He twisted his back end so badly he couldn't walk anymore. I was about to take him to the vet, when he began to poop blood. I knew then he was gravely injured.
My neighbor and friend took over and began searching for in-home vets, because moving Charlie would have been torture for him. We finally contacted Lap of Love, and even though Dr. Hampton was booked- she came as quickly as she possibly could. I appreciated her gentle, yet professional demeanor. Charlie was a nervous type, so this situation was ideal for us both. He was calm, being soothed, and he wasn't scared when he left us. A memory I can live with forever. Charlie and Dr. Hampton are in my heart forever. Thank you all SO MUCH!!"

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Lauren Peek, DVM"Dr. Peek was phenomenal with our family during Sancho's final moments. She was kind, compassionate, and loving. She gave us as much time as we needed to say our final goodbyes, and was gentle and patient throughout the process. She answered all of our questions and even spoke to the children at a level they could comprehend. Dr. Peek is an angel and we are thankful she was called to support our family on this very difficult day."Michael and Diana WenrichWinter GardenOctober 24, 2019Sancho's Pet Memorial
