Annie Dion-Byrd, DVM

"It was so difficult to know that I had to say good-bye to my 6 year old cat, Rocky. He was diagnosed with a very rare cancer. From the moment I called Lap of Love, I felt the love, compassion, and care. Dr. Annie came to my home on a Sunday and she was a blessing in our time of need. She spent time with me and Rocky. We talked about all different options. She was just amazing.. Rocky passed in his own home with me right by his side. He was under no stress and to know he would not suffer was a relief. It is always hard to say good bye to our loving animals, but i can't say enough about Lap of Love and Dr. Annie. They also ..."

Sandra Simko, DVM

"Tuesday was one of the hardest days I had in a long time. I have had many in the past 2 years but this day was the worst.

I stayed awake all night struggling with letting my Sophie go. I was physically sick. When I knew in my heart it was right, I called Lap of Love. I spoke to Donna, who was wonderful. Kind, understanding and compassionate. We scheduled Dr. Simko to come at 3P.M. and the day seemed endless. My stomach was sick all day, and I couldn't stop crying. I have 2 other dogs, Francis and Pearle and we were a team. They went everywhere with me. Such a void now.

Dr. Simko is an angel herself. Wished she was in private ..."

William Tancredi, DVM

"Dr B,

Was so very kind, gentle and caring during our time of grief. He took the time to explain the procedure in a caring and respectful manner. We are so grateful to Dr. B and Lap of Love for allowing our family to honor Ozzie gracefully and with dignity during his time of passing.

Mary Gardner, DVM

"I had to say goodbye to my old girl Bebe in November of last year. Like all animal lovers, we want to extend their time here with us as long as possible with proper medications and an abundance of love and attention.... and in some cases that works for awhile.

For me the hardest part of letting go is knowing when it's the right time. With Dr. Mary's guidance I was able to let go before crisis mode set in, which would have been the worst possible scenario.

My girl had a beautiful, stress free send off in her own home and on her own bed. She was at peace, which in turn brought peace to my heart. Lap of Love was the best gift I ..."

Toby Goldman, DVM

"I would like to thank Dr. Toby for helping me through this difficult time. I was uncertain what to expect, and didn't want my sweet girl Ruby to be in any discomfort. He made me feel at ease, and Ruby was treated with the up most respect and caring. His thoughtfulness will never be forgotten."

Leslie Peltier, DVM

"Dr. Leslie, I am very thankful to have found you in Blossom's time of need. Your skill made this a peaceful experience for her. And the compassion and dignity that you brought to the situation made this a far more tolerable experience for me, too. I couldn't have asked for a better doctor."

Thank you for defying all medical odds for 7 years in the fight against kidney disease and making it to an amazing 19.5 years old. Thank you for all the nuzzles, head bumps, snuggles, cuddles and somehow knowing how to ...

“In Memory of Buttercup

Words can't adequately express the heartbreak of letting her go. Through the years, we get a feeling that they will always be with us, and it's gut wrenching when we realize it isn't the case. She represented comfort, and home. Even if she and I(we,) didn't interact through the day, since we all know cats sleep a good ...
