Helping Families Honor the Lives Of Those They Love
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Anna Champagne"What a caring, loving doctor we had in Dr. Anna Champagne. She was professional at all times, but made sure we knew our beloved Brody was important to her, too. She relieved his pain and anxiety prior to euthanasia. It was very quick, and obviously easy on him. We appreciated her comments as she went about her task."Robert BowdenSarasotaAugust 20, 2019Brody's Pet Memorial

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Lisa Rodin"We were so grateful that it was you and how precious you were. I have cried for 2 days.. Panda was by our side and especially by my daughter's side for some very challenging years. We are feeling lost. I really see now that she stayed until my daughter left for college... she deserves peace and joy and freedom but I will miss loving her and going places with her and her sitting at the front door and following me from room to room and our walks and puppacinos and too many things to mention. So we are beyond grateful to you. You are very good at what you do and how you give and take care of the babies and the humans.
Thank you. Dr Lisa .. you were so sweet to Panda..."

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Kristine Campanelli"Dr. Kristine was so lovely and gentle on the day I had to let my Pickles go. Her compassion and kind demeanor helped make this difficult time more manageable. She allowed Pickles to roam around and be herself, allowed my other cats to come in and check everything out, she made me feel as at ease as possible giving me tissues and informing me what was happening every step of the way. I will always treasure the keepsake fur, whisker and paw print she put together. She even stayed to help me wrap Pickles gently when it was all over. She positioned her in what I told her was Pickles favorite snuggly position. All these little touches were much appreciated and truly helped me through the process. Thank you Dr. Kristine!"Kate SmithBellport, NYAugust 20, 2019Pickles's Pet Memorial
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Loren Gassler"Our baby Besito was diagnosed with Lymphoma in her liver and liver disease just 6 weeks ago. She progressed quickly into liver failure and when life was partially dependent on pain and nausea medication, we called Lap of Love. Dr Loren Gassler came into our home greeting us with hugs instead of hand shakes and making friends with Beso. She gave explained to us the process and talked with us for a moment before giving Beso a sedative that made her more comfortable than we've seen her in a few days if not weeks. When Beso was ready, Dr Loren gave her the Angel Juice and Beso slipped away from us into Dog Heaven to watch over our family. Dr Loren was incredible and gave us and Besito the best end of life experience possible. I only wish humans had this option in each state. It truly was painless and beautiful. If given the choice, I will always do this for my other furry babies. My husband and I thank Lap of Love for the professionalism, kindness and superb care they took of us and Beso at this awful time. I recommend using Lap of Love's services anytime you have the option to do so. I have seen a dozen pets pass in my life and this is by far the best experience for this special, loving creature."Rebecca ShortTampaAugust 20, 2019

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Keri Morgan"While my daughter and her family (The Medleys) were out of town, they left their beloved greyhound, Havoc, in our care. We all knew that Havoc might not be here when they returned because she was in poor health. Havoc took a turn for the worse a few days later, and someone told us about Lap of Love because we wanted to be sure we were doing the right thing and we needed help to determine if we should euthanize Havoc. Dr. Keri Morgan came to our house for a consultation and confirmed that it was definitely Havoc's time. She is such a compassionate, caring person who handled Havoc so gently and lovingly, and Havoc passed away peacefully in her favorite spot in front of the fireplace. All of us, including our daughter, Victoria and the entire Medley Family, are so grateful to everyone at Lap of Love for being here for us during this difficult time."Donna ZelchSaint LouisAugust 20, 2019

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Allie Prokop"We recently had to help our senior yellow lab cross the rainbow bridge. Dr. Allie was an absolute angel. Not only did she calm and comfort our sweet Sadie, she comforted us humans as well. She made the whole experience beautiful from start to finish. We feel like it was the last special thing we could do for our baby. After this I can’t imagine going any other route. You will not find a more kind and compassionate doctor anywhere! Thank you again Dr. Allie for helping us through this."Irene CatchpoleOliver SpringsAugust 19, 2019
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Keri Morgan"Percy was my dog for 16 years and throughout the latter part of that time, was petrified to go to the vets. I'm incredibly grateful to Dr. Morgan for helping to ensure that his last minutes with me were as serene as possible. He was there, got some scratches and affection in his favorite resting spot after his morning breakfast and a cleanup, and then, with her help, he drifted away."Ian DobbinsSaint LouisAugust 19, 2019
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Elyse Persico"We would like to thank Dr Elyse for helping Creek pass peacefully and comfortably at home with his family.

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Jordan Taheri"I had the hardest decision to make about my sweet girl, Calee. Dr. Jordan could not have been any nicer considering the difficult circumstances. He was so kind as he explained everything that was going to take place, step-by-step. He allowed me to speak about Calee and her illness and he listened so attentively. It was one of the saddest days ever for me but I am grateful to Dr. Jordan. He allowed me to have alone time so I could say goodbye to my girl. I so appreciate his kind words and how sweet and gentle he was with my baby girl."T.J. LongMargateAugust 19, 2019Calee's Pet Memorial

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Kristine Campanelli"When our beloved English Springer Spaniel "Jesse James" was in his 15th year and starting to decline rather suddenly, I realized it would be good to prepare the best we could for his passing. We were blessed with excellent primary veterinary care at All Creatures Veterinary Hospital in Long Beach, NY, but we felt we wanted Jesse to pass at home surrounded by his human, canine and feline family. All Creatures referred us to Lap of Love and I will always be grateful for that; from my inital phone call we recieved only caring and compassionate care. When we felt the time had come Dr. Kristine came to our home. We will always be grateful and know we have no regrets that our boy, who was so much a part of our lives, ended that life surrounded by the people and "critters" who loved him best. It was a peaceful, gentle and unhurried experience including Dr. Kristine taking him for his final arrangements, and including comforting followup and support. It was also very helpful at this tough time to have all the arrangements made in advance; we had many choices explained to us. Again, very grateful to have found Lap of Love. I recommend this wonderful service to anyone with an aging pet both for their Hospice services and at that most difficult time, saying goodbye to a special family member, comes."Karen DikemanBayportAugust 18, 2019Rocky's Pet Memorial
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Elizabeth Hilton"I almost NEVER submit testimonials but today ( 8/18/19) I had to send my cat, Milk, over the rainbow bridge. She was a fat cat
( over 23lbs) and was a nervous cat with new people or new situations. I knew I could not put her in a car to bring to a vet because her anxiety level would hit the roof. I was lucky enough to find a Vet Angel who goes by the name Liz Hilton come to my home and I witnessed a miracle. The miracle did not lie within her expertise as a doctor, but it was her compassion and true love for animals that was felt by me, Milk and her pet mates. There was not 1 second that Milk felt any anxiousness, pain, nervousness or fear. It was such a peaceful transition. Even after Milk's passing, Dr. Hilton carried her outside in a beautiful basket with a pillow and blanket to complete the act of love and respect. I am sure that Milk's arrival into this world was more stressful than the ending of her beautiful life. Milk was such a loving cat that I am happy that her ending was deservedly surrounded by love and peace. Thank you from my heart and my soul for sending my Milk off to her just reward. You have my unending appreciation and respect."

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Kristine Campanelli"Putting down our beloved Rocky was the hardest thing we have done as a family thus far. When Dr. Kristine walked up to our porch where Rocky was laying he greeted her with a wag of his tail. I believe Rocky knew she was kind and compassionate. Dr. Kristine was loving and took her time and told us step-by-step what she was going to do which allowed us to each place our hands on Rocky and comfort him as he went to sleep. It was actually beautiful.. There is no question that I would recommend doing this type of service in your pets home. This couldn’t be any more personal and appropriate for our beloved family member.Rocky. Thank you Dr. Kristine..."Cindy HarrisMount SinaiAugust 18, 2019

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Dana Lewis"When Charlie crossed the rainbow bridge we were fortunate to have Dr. Dana to navigate the path. She was compassionate and kind to both my Mom and I and to Charlie. Charlie was diagnosed with lymphoma in April and crossed the bridge July. He went down hill very fast after having a seizure. I am so grateful that we learned about Lap of Love and had an appointment scheduled when we did. Charlie was able to remain at home until the end with the people he so loved and who loved him."Ann HuntCaryAugust 18, 2019
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Amy Parrish"Dr Amy was amazing. I was lucky enough to have known her from high school. It was so comforting to have someone familiar with us during such a difficult process. She walked us thru the entire process and made us feel so comfortable. No part of the process was rushed. She even made sure to allow us to have our other animals spend time with their sister before she took her away. She definitely helped us feel much better with our difficult decision."Megan BisherEastonAugust 18, 2019Star's Pet Memorial
