Helping Families Honor the Lives Of Those They Love
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Karen Meyers"Dr. Karen Meyers from Lap of Love made one of the hardest days of my life bearable. I had anticipated and dreaded saying goodbye to my sweet Stepper for months. But what I never anticipated was the incredible compassion shown by Dr. Meyers and how peaceful the whole process was. She took time to talk to me and made sure I was at peace with my decision. She did not rush me. She was so patient with me and answered all of my questions--multiple times. She spent almost two hours in my home helping me with my decision. The ability to say goodbye at home was a Godsend. Stepper was so anxious and stressed at the vet, especially as she aged. At home she was completely relaxed with absolutely no anxiety. She died peacefully in my arms with me telling her how much I loved her and what a good girl she was. Dr. Meyers has reached out to me several times this week just to check on me and make sure I am OK. I will never forget her kind care and compassion. It was an honor to have her present with me and Stepper. Thank you Dr. Karen."Lisa RickardSilver SpringAugust 8, 2020Stepper's Pet Memorial

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Jennifer Bell"Dr Bell and the whole team was great helping our Kitty Bud cross that rainbow bridge arranging on the phone with Annie the day of Annie was kind and compassionate and talked to my husband for about 45 min just listening
Dr Bell was very soothing during the procedure compassionate to Bud and to us even though I had to video in because I was stuck out of town
We got Bud's ashes the next day Dr gave us a paw print and a clip of hair too

Even though we are gutted by our kitty's death Lap of Love made it a little easier

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Sierra Hedrick"I am writing to pass on some info on this company. They were the kindest, most professional, respectful staff I could have had the pleasure of having by my side through such a hard time. My dearest best friend of 13 years, Mina, was finally ready to say goodbye and rest. I had Dr. Sierra Hendrick as our Vet. She met Mina, helped her, and was on call for when we thought she was ready and needed professional, trusted advice on what to do about my sweet girl. Mina was very comfortable with her, barely flinching when she'd come through the door. She seemed to trust her naturally and immediately. When Mina finally told us that she was ready, Dr. Sierra was available, prompt, gentle, respectful, kind, and guiding. She helped Mina to stay peaceful as we all said goodbye to her. I could not have asked for a more beautiful, peaceful, and profoundly special way for my best friend to leave this world. I am so thankful to the Lap pf Love company and their family for helping me and Mina so much. I am very thankful to Dr. Sierra for being the special person that she is.
Sincerely,
Karena Sfakianakis"

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Desiree Thomas"Today has been 1 week since we had Lap of Love come into our home and assist our youngest baby, Hobbs, cross over the rainbow bridge. Dr. Desiree was really great and sympathetic. I had only moved to FL a year ago from NH and have not found an extremely trust worthy vet I wanted to bring him to at this point in life. Especially with all this COVID-19 restricting access to being with pets in appointments, I wanted to ensure that Hobbs had his entire family around him for support. So I am so happy that Lap of Love is still offering euthanasia services. Hobbs has his dad (my husband) and I along with his brother Scowt (chihuahua sibling). This has been the worst week of my entire life without Hobbs, our little buddy. My grief has been so heavy it’s making it difficult. But the compassion that Dr. Desiree provides eased our pain in the process, as much as she could, so we stayed focused on Hobbs during the time he needed us all most. My only regret was not taking a locket of fur, not that it’s any fault of theirs, my advice is to get all the extras and do what you will with it later on, you can not go back in time and get those things done. I am trying to gather what I can from his bed and special places he hid during storms. This is a great service and I highly recommend it, the ease of the pet being in their own home is priceless."Em BlodgettCape CoralAugust 8, 2020
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Laura Porta"Dr. Laura was so incredibly wonderful. Even with the pandemic, she was willing to come out and help send our sweet Milo to heaven. She was calm and peaceful and Milo didn't even seem to be aware that there was a new person there. She made his paw print with his name on it and cut a lock of his hair. She sent a sweet card and email. She was not his regular vet, so her caring and sweetness meant a lot. I wish she would've been."West BloomfieldAugust 8, 2020Milo's Pet Memorial
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Shannon Cabell"So thankful a dear friend recommended Lap of Love. My sweet Sheltie, Kady, was a week shy of her 14th birthday and she let me know it was time. As trips to our vets office were always so traumatic for my girl having her last moments in our own backyard surrounded by her family was a blessing. Dr. Shannon was so kind and caring to both Kady and our family. I can not say enough good things about this wonderful company. They made a very difficult time in our lives more bearable and eased my sweet girl over the rainbow bridge with love."Dee LeitnerMonroe TownshipAugust 7, 2020
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Brad Bates"This is the second time Dr. Brad has helped one of our pets pass over. He has a difficult job, but there can be no doubt of his dedication, kindness, and care for pets and their people. Twice now he has spared us the "final ride" to the vet and the upsetting and nervous wait with a scared pet in an exam room. Thanks to Dr. Brad, our Emily was able to pass in the privacy and comfort of her own home, surrounded by those who love her. The service provided by Lap of Love is a blessing and comfort during an otherwise awful time. We cannot thank you enough, Dr. Brad, you are truly a very special person."Diane Senft-McCluskeySwarthmoreAugust 7, 2020Emily's Pet Memorial
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Sally Lynch"The phone reps were kind and patient during the scheduling process. It didn't feel like they were reading from scripts and pushing you through the call. They were really sweet during the difficult process of scheduling the appointment.
Dr. Sally came to our house and she was simply wonderful. She was calm, patient, reassuring, compassionate, and genuinely caring. I cannot express how much we appreciate that she was there during the worst day of my life. She handled Grace, and us, with respect and dignity for every second that she was in our home."

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Jeni Goedken"Dear Dr. Jeni,
Losing a pet is never easy, especially one as brave as our blind dog Britt, but then having to say goodbye so soon to our other dog Bella was definitely extra hard. We were so lucky to have called you to help make their last minutes as calm and pleasant as possible. You were definitely correct when you said that we will always remember our last few minutes with them and we were glad that we could have those minutes in our home. Thank you so much for your comforting words and genuine compassion. We really appreciate it.

Gratefully Yours,
Marcus and Lenora Louie"

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Heather Manfredi"My family would like to express our deepest gratitude for Lap of Love. From the first phone call speaking with Maria, who was soft spoken and empathetic. Dr. Heather, arrived within the hour to our home. Right when she walked in she had a compassionate presence. She was very kind and caring during this difficult time. She took the time out to talk to our family about memories we had with our dearest St. Bernard mix, Gigi. Dr. Heather made Gigi's journey home to the angels very peaceful. We will be forever grateful for Dr. Heather. Thank you Dr. Heather, you are an amazing beautiful person."Roxanne, Steven & Missy Roxanne, Steven & MissyWantaghAugust 6, 2020

Lap of Love Veterinarian: George Croskey"The only thing I can say is that Dr. George and Lap of Love reduced Claribell and my family's stress and anxiety levels by 95%. We all know how sad and heart wrenching it is to say goodbye to our pets. We got Claribell from the humane society 16 years ago as a 5th birthday present for my daughter. She ruled our house and hearts but diabetes won the fight and she was in pain most of the time. We were able to sit on our patio where Claribell loved to hang in the sun, drinks water from our pond, eat catnip, and purr with the fish. Because we used Lap of Love, I was able to hold her, pet her, and hear her fabulous purr while she enjoyed her favorite things and went to Kitty heaven. Dr. George was incredibly gentle, kind and patient. She gave our family all the time we needed with no pressure. I highly recommend her and this company!"Laura SheetsBeavercreekAugust 6, 2020

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Kim Slade"It seems that I cannot express how grateful I am that Lap of Love and Dr. Slade were at my side through one of the most heartbreaking experiences of my life. As I emphasize once again to Dr. Slade, "Thank you does not seem to be enough to convey the heartfelt emotion in how you carried me and my baby through this extremely difficult time. Lap of Love is now part of me and will forever hold a special place in my heart. Your gifted devotion to this calling is that of no other comparison. I do believe that people enter the lives of one another, their paths cross, at certain times for a reason.
I am so blessed and privileged of having you as one of those special people."

With all one's heart,
Linda"
