In addition to her important role as a hospice veterinarian, Dani McVety, DVM is a speaker, consultant, author, and host for PetCareTV. With a deep love for the human-animal bond, Dr. McVety enjoys just about anything that has to do with pets! Growing up with horses taught her a great deal about the need for respect of these animals we share this earth with. Although she originally wanted to practice equine medicine, volunteer time with human hospice steered her on a different path. After graduation, she practiced emergency medicine and gained a greater understanding of how to help families at a time in which they felt the most helpless. This has become her greatest fulfillment in veterinary medicine; helping to ease the stress and fear of the people that love their animals. Already an accomplished entrepreneur before vet school graduation, Dr. McVety partnered with Dr. Mary Gardner shortly after founding Lap of Love. She will tell you that was the best business decision she ever made!
Dr. McVety frequently writes and speaks for professional and lay audiences on end-of-life veterinary topics in hopes of empowering both parties to seek the highest standards of care. Dr. McVety and Lap of Love have been featured on numerous local, national, and professional media outlets including CNN, The New York Times, ABC, Fox 13, University of Florida Alumni Magazine, and many more. She proudly graduated from the University of Florida College of Veterinary Medicine and is the youngest recipient of the college’s Distinguished Young Alumni Award (2013) in addition to the the Florida Veterinary Medical Association’s President’s Award (2014).
