Why Choose Lap of Love?

We are available for all end-of-life needs including teleadvice, palliative hospice care, in-home euthanasia, and aftercare assistance. All services are provided in your home, allowing a more comprehensive evaluation of your pet in their natural surroundings. Additionally, we offer pet loss support for individuals and small groups to help pet parents cope with their grief. As always, love and dignity are at the center of all that we do.

"Because their last moment should be at home with you."

How Will You Know It’s the Right Time?

You know your pet best; look for specific changes in your companion, such as:

  • Change in appetite or thirst
  • Not wanting to do the things they love
  • Decreased interest in playing
  • Unable to stand or ambulate on their own
  • Incontinence
  • Change in attitude (depression, aggression, confusion)

When is Teleadvice Care Appropriate?

If you feel like you need guidance, you’re not sure if you’re ready for euthanasia, or you simply need to talk to someone about it, we’re here for you. Our teleadvice* services provide general guidance for concerned pet parents.

In a teleadvice session, you will speak with a Lap of Love doctor over the phone or on Zoom for about 30 minutes. During your call, we’ll go over many different ways your pet’s quality of life can be addressed, ensuring you and your family feel confident about the next steps.

* Our teleadvice service cannot diagnose, treat, or prevent disease, illness, or pain without conducting an in-person physical examination.

time with your pet while keeping him or her comfortable.

  • In-home consultation
  • Pain recognition and management
  • Management of nutrition
  • Fluid therapy
  • Wound care
  • Information on what to expect for the end-of-life process

Why Choose In-Home Euthanasia?

The decision to euthanize a pet is one of the most difficult choices you will be faced with. In the home, families are allowed to express their feelings more freely and to make the experience the most comfortable on the pet and on themselves that it possibly can be.

In-Home Euthanasia Service Includes:

  • In-home consultation
  • Heavy sedation
  • Peaceful euthanasia
  • Memorial items (clay paw print and fur clipping)
  • Information on pet loss
  • Assistance with cremation, if elected
