Loren Gassler, DVM

"Dr. Loren is amazimg. She made a very hard time a little easier with her compassion for both Skyler and I. She took her time and made sure he was as comfortable as possible. There was no fear or stress for Skyler what so ever and he went very gently and peacefully. She made the experience very personable and our family is forever grateful."

Brad Bates, VMD

"Dr Brad,

It was very difficult for my wife and I to make the decision to let our best friend leave us and go to rest. We really appreciated what you did for us yesterday and how kind, gentle, and professional you were. You and Lap of Love made a sad day bearable and actually peaceful. It was very comforting to be in our home and I'd recommend this compassionate service to everyone"

Springfield, Pennsylvania

Manetta LaVergne, DVM

"Dr. Manetta's gentle guidance and support so helped our dog Rosie's end-of-life process. Our most important concern was to make Rosie's transition as peaceful and comfortable a process as possible, and that was exactly the help that Dr. Manetta provided. We initially engaged Lap of Love for a geriatric patient consultation. We all benefited from Dr. Manetta's evaluation of our Rosie's functional issues and suggestions for improving the quality of her life. When changes in Rosie's physical condition and daily functioning indicated that life was becoming more challenging and increasingly uncomfortable for her, Dr. Manetta helped us ..."

Kristine Campanelli, DVM

"Dr. Kristine,

Thank you so much for your kindness and compassion you showed to my Family and Sage. It was one of the worst days of our lives having to say good bye to our Sage!. You made us feel at peace making our decision to say goodbye. What a wonderful person you are, "Our new found Angel".

Thank you with all our Hearts!

Patricia and Robert Eadon"

Brad Bates, VMD

"I'm thankful for so many things, but the three I was most thankful for on my Lexi's last day were:

1. The time I had with my sweet little bean.

2. The sunspot gifted by the universe to my little girl, keeping her warm and cozy.

and 3. Dr. Brad for being the most wonderful person to help my bean leave this world with all the dignity and grace that she carried all 14 years of her amazing life.

I can not say enough about this service and this man.

Thank you,

with all of my heart

Jennifer....and Lexi"

Tabernacle, New Jersey

Kristina Kalivoda, DVM

"I had to make the most difficult decision of my life for my sweet Max three days ago. I can't believe how wonderful and compassionate these people are and how calming Dr. Kristina was for me and my sweet Maxwell. Max was diagnosed with cancer a few weeks ago and had one chemo treatment, but it didn't seem to be working. He stopped eating and in my heart I knew another chemo treatment would be just too hard on him. He was 13.

Dr. Kristina confirmed I was making the right choice and explained in detail why when she examined him. The relief I felt knowing I was making the right decision for my boy calmed me down and I knew I ..."

“Today a piece of our hearts is missing as we have lost our sweet Skyler. All dogs are special but Skyler was different from most. Born on Valentine's Day, he was meant to be a lover and boy was he. Ever since the day sixteen years ago that he came into our lives, Skyler has been a joyful loving companion to our family. He was always the first ...

“Meko was a very loving Siamese kitty that is very much missed. She would greet me at the door when I got home, sit and talk to me for hours while I worked on the computer, or follow me around and talk about what we were doing. Meko was my favorite furry bowling ball of love who wanted nothing else but to cuddle and be with me where I was. She was ...

For those of you who have truly loved a dog, I’m sure that you can appreciate how hard it has been on Laura and me, and has been especially difficult on all of us over the last couple of weeks while she was so frail.

As painful ...
