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"

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"

The care and compassion that Dr. Jessica Wilbourne showed was incredible and exceeded our expectations. She made a very sad personal life event beautiful.

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Daniel Genatiempo"Being able to help our precious family member leave her body in the safety and comfort of her own bed was itself valuable.

She made Mira’s passing as stress free as possible - she let us take our time and took the time to get to know Mira. Mira liked her very much.

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Rachel Klickman"I cannot say enough about a Lap of Love, Dr. Rachel was so compassionate, loving and caring. She made everyone feel comfortable especially our beloved Evan. He went peacefully in his own home, his own bed, with his eyes closed. We wrapped him in his favorite blanket and buried him in our backyard in his favorite garden. He will forever live in our hearts. I cannot say enough about Lap of Love, what a wonderful wonderful Group of people they are. Thank you so much ."Yolie DawsonAnnapolisAugust 22, 2019

A joyful heart is good medicine:)"Chris NicholsonJacksonvilleAugust 22, 2019Harry's Pet Memorial
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Abra Osorio"We called Lap of Love on a Monday, after receiving Strider's diagnosis. The lady we spoke with was extremely compassionate and understanding, and set us up for Dr. Abra Osorio to visit our house the next day. We cannot thank Dr. Osorio enough for the kindness she displayed during the entire process. She put us at ease, during an exceptionally difficult time, the moment she stepped in the door. She greeted our other dog, Willis, warmly and spent time petting Strider with us while she asked questions about our time with Strider. We discussed his personality and our time with him, as well as his diagnosis. She explained clearly and kindly the entire process, and throughout the service would share with us what he may be feeling and talked to us the entire time. She has a knack for reading people in our opinion - she knew exactly when we needed to be comforted, and exactly when to be quiet and just allow us to talk to Strider and love on him. He was completely relaxed around her, and he was at ease and relaxed during the entire process. She allowed our other dog Willis to choose if he wanted to be with us, and petted him as well before she left. There is no other way we would have wanted it - Strider was in his safe space (our home), with those who loved him around him. We cannot thank Dr. Osorio enough for the kindness she displayed. She truly comforted us on an extremely heart-wrenching day."Leigh & Jeff ShoupNashvilleAugust 22, 2019Strider's Pet Memorial
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Jenn Roedig"Dr. Jenn was a gift to me on the hardest day of my life. I can't express my gratitude enough for such a kind, gentle person guiding me through the toughest decision I've ever had to make. I knew she genuinely cared about Bella even though we just met and that she would take good care of my baby. I appreciate her reaching out after Bella's passing to make sure I was doing ok and offering her support. Thank you from the bottom of my heart."Laura SuterCincinnatiAugust 22, 2019Bella Suter's Pet Memorial
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Maggie Mottram"I can't begin to express my gratitude for the warmth, compassion and care that Dr. Maggie gave to our Amy...and to us.

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Christina Scudder"My daughter Lisa (who lives with me) and I cannot stop telling other pet owners about our profoundly moving experience(s) with Lap of Love’s Dr. Chris Scudder. I phoned and requested her to come to our home when my “Smokey-Joe” was at the end stage of bladder cancer. While he wasn’t a friendly dog to most people, he instinctively knew Dr. Chris was here to help him. Dr. Chris’s caring attitude and her gentleness impressed both Lisa and me from the moment she arrived to the moment she carefully carried my boy to her car. (The picture is of Smokey-Joe)
Unfortunately, that same day Lisa was told that her dog, Murphy was suffering with a bleeding tumor and she was sent home with pain meds and Lisa was told that Murphy had maybe two weeks and to watch if pain persisted. That day came only 3 days after we lost Smokey-Joe and once again Dr. Chris was called to our home. And once again she spoke with Murphy to console her and also spoke with Lisa to find out some details of Murphy’s life with Lisa, just as she had with my “Joe”.
Dr. Chris sent the most wonderful sympathy cards, writing a personal note on each. She said she had never been called so soon to the same home.
Her empathy and sympathy are unbelievable, as the next day a lovely bouquet of summer flowers were sent to Lisa and myself.
Dr. Chris Scudder will forever be in our prayers!"

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Leanne Mathew"I'm not quite sure how Lap of Love does what they do. From the first call to Dr. Leanne's visit we felt supported and cared for. The level of compassion was beyond words.

Dr. Leanne was so kind and gentle with Wrinkles and us. It felt like she had known us for years. She is truly an angel!

Having to make this decision was so painful and hard. I literally don't know what I would have done without Dr. Leanne and Lap of Love!"

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Nil Wilkins"I was blown away with the outpouring of love and compassion the Lap of Love team showed, not just to me but to both my dogs. I could not have asked for a better support system. It was so comforting to have them with me and loving on my baby with me one last time. I know even though Sarge couldn't say it, he was grateful. Thank you, Mary Anne and Dr Nil!"Stephanie LaCourTampaAugust 21, 2019Sergeant's Pet Memorial
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Jennifer Bell"Dr. Jennifer and the Lap of Love team were so amazing. We were agonizing over this decision and they were so sweet to be understanding as we changed our course of action a few times. They were there for us exactly when we needed them to be and I am so thankful for that. Dr. Jennifer was so compassionate and we couldn't think of a sweeter goodbye than keeping our boy comfortable and in our arms as he went toward the rainbow bridge. I will forever be grateful for this service that allowed me to be with my dog in his last moments on this earth."Kristin EwigColumbusAugust 21, 2019Beanie's Pet Memorial
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Christina Guillory"Dr. Guillory is so sweet and caring. We were so relieved when we found out she was with Lap of Love now. She new Mormor and had taken care of him for three years prior. I think he remembered her when she came to our house Sunday. Thank you so much Dr. Guillory for taking care of our booboo, and being so kind and caring to all of us❤️"Crystal MorrisonBayou VistaAugust 21, 2019Mormor's Pet Memorial
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Kimberly Moen"Dr. Kimberly Moen was angel sent from the Lord. In my most difficult time having to make this decision about my Tony she brought an element of love and peace and respect not only to Tony but to me as well. Instead of feeling fearful I felt very trustful and appreciate the gentleness and patience that Dr. Moen displayed so lovingly and professionally.

It was a Blessing to be able to hold my sweet boy in my arms and "pray" over him and sing the little songs I used to sing to him. I will always carry that comforting memory in my heart. Thank you with much love dear "Kimberly". God Bless you.
