Lap of Love Veterinarian: Roger Chase"to DrRoger






I will never be able to find the words to thank you enough for what you did yesterday to help our Cody move on to his next adventure in such a pain free loving way. You are a wonderful, compassionate, knowledgeable and all around good guy. This was such a better way to have the end of life celebrated instead of a rushed, loud and painful death. We are all doing so much better today because we know we took care of our wonderful Cody right to the end the best way possible. We will always miss our constant companion and will be looking forward to being with him on the other side. Thank you! You were our hero yesterday."

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Caroline Kiert"Highly recommend her to anyone who has to experience loss. She’s soft spoken, compassionate, and gives you the time you need. She’s helped me cross both my fur babies over the rainbow bridge this year. I don’t know how she handles the job she does but she does it well!"Annie HenryRocklinNovember 12, 2019Olive's Pet Memorial
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Kara Fuchs"Dr Kara was kind, compassionate, soft-spoke, and performed the necessary job to perfection. We've already recommended her, and Lap of Love, to another dog owner who is in the same situation with her pet. As difficult as the process was emotionally, she made it a very relaxing and comfortable experience, for us and for our dog."Joe CollinsBlaineNovember 12, 2019

She showed her so much respect and dignity. She was so patient with our other dog Ruby during the process. She was so compassionate with me and my husband.

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Allie Prokop"Losing a loved one is never easy. We decided to use Lap of Love so Duchess would be comfortable and not have the stress of going to vet. Dr. Allie was amazing and compassionate. She took her time and made sure Duchess was comfortable and that I was doing ok as well. I cant thank you enough Dr. Allie. You made an extremely difficult situation a little easier to handle with your care and compassion.

Thank you,
Duchess and Jen"

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Roger Chase"How kind of you Doctor Rodger! My boys and I greatly appreciated how kindly and patiently you helped Toto pass on. That meant the world to me, I'd been agonizing over how it could be possible to help him leave here without a lot of fear and pain. He was such a sweet little dog. I am definitely feeling the emptiness you referred to. My cat also misses him, she keeps going to where his bed was, sniffing around and then meowing. So tomorrow I'm going to find us another cat. I will be sure to refer anyone who needs their pet to be sent on to heaven to you. Thanks again, Michelle"HolladayNovember 12, 2019
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Amanda Grant"Dr. Amanda Grant was amazing with our sweet 13 year old goldendoodle, Coby. It was time to say goodbye to him, and we had just relocated from out of state and had a difficult time finding veterinary care. Scheduling was easy, Dr Amanda was prompt, caring and kind. Coby left our us peacefully and lovingly in our own home. Dr Amanda even made a keepsake clay pawprint for us to remember him by. We would wholeheartedly recommend Lap of Love and Dr Amanda for your pet's end of life care."Thomas RamseyPompano BeachNovember 12, 2019Coby Ramsey's Pet Memorial
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Kimberly Carper"Kimberly is an amazing Vet. Start to finish she gently guided us through the entire process. From the moment she arrived we could feel her compassion. Her kind words reassured us that we were making the right decision. She took her time and answered all of our questions. Brinks deserved the best possible release available. I have so much gratitude for Kimberly and the service that she offered. Brinks died well in the comfort of his own home in his favorite spot. Kimberly walked us through a tremendously gut wrenching situation, and helped to alleviate some of the pain. It made the process bearable. We felt comfort knowing that Brinks was going home with her to do the hand off to the team that will prepare his remains. Her caring bedside manner is unmatched in my humble opinion. Thank you so much Kimberly I can not emphasize enough our gratitude."Jesse and Wendy WarnerCedar ParkNovember 12, 2019Brinks Broken Oaks Joseph's Pet Memorial
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Christina Scudder"To know Mikey was to love him. Through fourteen years, he was my best friend and my constant companion. He was the favorite of the house and everyone knew it. After a lump was found back in February, a vet visit confirmed Mikey was not a good candidate for surgery - between being diabetic, a bad kidney, and a heart murmur, and that nothing could be done. To say we were heartbroken was an understatement. The vet gave us strict orders to spoil him rotten, and that's exactly what we did for eight and a half months. Eventually, his tumor got the best of him. Breathing became hard and food became uninteresting. The time came to contact Lap of Love. At my request, we communicated through email. They responded quickly with care and full of helpful information and were easy to schedule with. Even still, it was the hardest decision I have ever had to make in my life.

Dr. Scudder came as scheduled and was incredibly kind and thoughtful. She took the time to get to know Mikey, answer all of our questions and let us take as much time as we needed with our sweet kitty. She helped us make paw prints, in both clay and ink. Dr. Scudder was happy to work in our space, so that Mikey was comfortable and loved through the whole process. It was a blessing to have the ability to have Dr. Scudder come to us, instead of having the stress of going to the vet. I will forever be grateful for the care, love, and respect of Dr. Scudder and the services of Lap of Love."

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Loren Gassler"Madison was the first pet I have ever had to go down this path with. I was so worried that when the time I would be able to be there for her. I received information about Laps of Love from a friend that had to recently say goodbye to her dog. After talking with her I knew that when the time came they are who I would call. Little did I know I would be making the call the next week. Dr. Gassier came in and sat down on the floor and got to know all the pets. She let me tell her the story how Maddy came into my life and just took time to listen. She explained everything to me and was so loving and gentle with Maddy it was such a relief. No stressful ride in the car for Maddy, not vets office. She was able to go on her next journey in the safety of her dog bed with me Molly and Tigger by her side. I would not have changed anything other than having her for a longer any my life. Thank Loren for everything. Your wonderful email later that day. The loving way you took care of Maddy and me. You are a god send."Candace CobbTarpon SpringsNovember 12, 2019Madison's Pet Memorial
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Kim Bruce"Dr. Kim was outstanding and very professional and helped us greatly in this experience. She also educated us about our dog's disease and we felt more comfortable with our decision. Our dog passed with the respect and dignity he deserved. So much better and less traumatic than doing this in a vet office. Our dog was calm, relaxed and felt no fear - just compassion. The experience at home was not only more peaceful, but helped us with our guilt, closure and grieving as well. The phone staff was outstanding as well and gave us all the information we needed prior. Highly recommend Dr. Kim and Lap of Love in this painful time."Jenny KachnicDenverNovember 11, 2019
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Loren Gassler"During this extremely emotional and difficult time, Dr. Loren was incredible. They explained everything, she hugged us and assured us we were making the right decision. I cannot thank her enough or the nice gentleman from Pet Angels. The sincere compassion, dignity, respect and understanding they both demonstrated was amazing. I would never consider anyone but Lap of Love during these terrible times. They love people and animals equally. They are angels on earth."Cindy DavisTampaNovember 11, 2019Sammy G. Davis, Jr.'s Pet Memorial

With sincere appreciation,

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Jenn Roedig"Dr. Jenn has been with us twice this year. I can't thank her enough for her kindness and compassion in assisting us to say goodbye to our sweet Jolie. I would recommend this service to anyone who has a pet who is ready to pass on. It is a wonderful service and the best possible environment to say goodbye is in your home with your pet in your arms."Debbie Dutton-LambertMt. Healthy, OhioNovember 11, 2019Jolie's Pet Memorial

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Elyse Persico"Our baby passed before Dr. Elyse could get to us. When she arrived she was so kind and compassionate. She was respectful and handle our baby like she was her own. I was very impressed and would highly recommend Lap of Love to anyone who needs this type of service."Lisa WeddleHamptonNovember 11, 2019
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Kali Jimenez"Lap of Love couldn't have been more caring and wonderful during this difficult time. Everyone we spoke to on the phone and especially Dr. Kali was extremely compassionate and kind. It's such a heartbreaking time but being able to say goodbye at home was so much better for us and especially for our sweet dog. It was as peaceful of an ending as I could have hoped for and I am so very grateful for that. I would absolutely recommend Dr. Kali for anyone facing the decision of saying goodbye to a fur baby."St AugustineNovember 11, 2019
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Stephanie Henderson"Dr. Henderson was very gentle and sweet plus she knew Moe from her days with Caring Hands in Bristow. We can't thank her enough for her kindness and gentleness with this. Plus, knowing that she was familiar with Moe helped in taking some of the pair of losing him away."Lisa & Jay McDonnellHaymarketNovember 11, 2019Moe's Pet Memorial
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Kendra Healy"I suppose most cat owners think that their cat is the most best, smartest, and most beautiful cat in the world -- and we are no exception. Dr. Healy was truly a God-send to us. She took our phone calls in the evenings and came to our home when we needed her on a Saturday morning. She was extraordinarily compassionate and extremely competent in everything she did. We cannot express how thankful we are for her."Devin BrownLexingtonNovember 11, 2019
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Jennifer Walters"I don't know how you could ever be ready to say goodbye. Sparky was much more than a pet to me, he was my child. He left 16 years of paw prints on my heart, something I will never forget. As hard as letting go was, I will always appreciate Dr. Jenn. She was so gentle and loving during the entire process. I cannot imagine doing her job having to deal with the anguish of families losing something so precious. I will forever be grateful that I chose Lap of Love and Dr. Jenn, this allowed our Sparky to be comfortable and loved by all of our family in his last moments."Sheri HitchcockPinevilleNovember 11, 2019
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Jennifer Walters"I cannot express to you how perfect our experience with you. I’ve been telling everyone! I had no idea something so gut wrenching could also feel peaceful, calm, and beautiful! I’m rethinking my entire perspective on death itself having watched Chloe go through the process with you. Really. And how lucky our kids are to have such a healthy and honest understanding about it all too. My heart feels so full about how it all went, and it was ALL because of you. A million thank yous."Laura HughesCharlotteNovember 11, 2019
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Jessica Spitzer"Emily was a RESCUE cat in a no-kill shelter! In her memory, please consider RESCUING an animal instead of DESIGNING one!

She lived to be 20+ years old, long past what her nine lives would normally bring her!

We had @lapoflove come to OUR HOUSE to help with the euthanasia! Dr. Jessica Spitzer...what a blessing!

Today we all cuddled and watched old videos and pictures. We share a few with you."
