Annie Dion-Byrd, DVM

"I could not have picked a better way to let her go. She was too weak to walk and eat. I called Dr. Annie last minute, but she was able to come the same day. Grace passed away after the sedative, as if all she needed was permission to go, but we finished the process all the same. The procedure was calm and full of caution and I honestly felt that Dr. Annie understood how to handle every step with care and love. I would recommend the services to everyone. The paw print is another great addition to the keepsakes I have of her and i'm grateful for it."

Amanda Page, DVM

"Last Thursday's decision to let our sweet Harley go was one of the most difficult things I've ever done. Harley gave us 13 years of unconditional love. In the end, he was coughing and struggling to breathe. I asked him to give me a sign, to help me make the right decision, and that sweet little dog looked me right in the eye and began to cry. This is a stoic little dog who's only whimpered once in his entire life. And then he barked--another thing he never did. He was telling me that he was through suffering. I picked up the phone and called Lap of Love and Dr. Amanda was at my home within the hour. She was kind and gentle ..."

Amanda Page, DVM

"This past week, we had to make the heartbreaking decision to say goodbye to our beloved 5 1/2 year old Shar Pei, Grizzly, due to kidney failure. He was in very poor shape, and in his final days our last wish for him was a peaceful transition as he left this life. Shar Pei as a breed can be standoffish to strangers and don't like vet visits even at the best of times. We worried in his dire state, the presence of someone unknown would cause even more stress. And then Dr. Amanda arrived. After a courteous call alerting us to her arrival time, she came with a warm greeting and even warmer smile. To our incredible delight, when Grizzly ..."

Brad Bates, VMD

"Yesterday Dr. Brad came to our home to help us say good bye to our sweet dog Penny. She left this world peacefully, in the comfort of her home and in my arms.

Thank you Dr. Brad for everything you did for us. I will never forget the warmth and kindness you showed to all of us.

I miss my dog so much, I hurt everywhere; but the peaceful transition she had alleviates some of that pain. Thank you Dr. Brad and Lap of Love for making that possible."

Maura Jones
Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

Shannon Skevakis, DVM

"It's tough to say that such a painful time can be a good experience, but being able to say good bye in my home was so much easier for both me and my kitty George. Dr Shannon was calming and compassionate, explaining everything she was doing and letting me share some memories. Thank you so much for the work that you do."

Laura Carey
Flemington, New Jersey

Jordy Merrifield, DVM

"The loss of my beloved boy, Jake, while not totally unexpected, was terribly hard. He was my constant companion and his sweet being was my heart. Dr. Jordy's kindness and compassion for my pain made his passing peaceful and compassionate. He went quietly, stress free and surrounded with love, including his Papillion sister who sat by watching. Dr Jordy, I will always remember and be grateful for your caring concern as Jake crossed the Rainbow Bridge. Thank you."

“It has been 1 Year and 1 week since we had to lay Grace to rest. I haven't been able to write this for a long time, and even now it is hard. I had Grace for a best friend for a long time, most of my growing up in fact. We never knew her birthday or exactly how old she was, and we later found out she responded better to Spanish than english. Dad ...
