Lap Of Love

Lap of Love was born after witnessing a euthanasia in which the owner held tightly to her beloved dog, curled lovingly in her lap. It was such a beautiful sight, a woman and her companion sharing those last moments wrapped in each other. I knew I had to try to provide that opportunity to more people; it is what all owners and their pets deserve.

Veterinary Hospice is a specific approach to patient care that promotes quality of life and respect for the human-animal bond for a terminally ill pet. It is based on the principle that death can be experienced with dignity and as little pain as possible, all in the comfort of home surrounded by family.

Since Veterinary Hospice is focused on giving animals a safe and comfortable end-of-life experience, it is not geared toward curing a patient’s disease, but rather toward keeping the disease or any other physical disabilities from causing the patient discomfort.

In veterinary medicine, we have the option to choose euthanasia, which literally means “good death.” The decision is never made without a heavy heart, and Lap of Love assists families in all aspects of this end-of-life choice. Families are given the opportunity to make the experience as calm and comfortable on their pet and themselves as possible. This in-home experience is unlike any other and will surely make the most difficult time of a pet owner’s life just a little less stressful.
