Veterinary Hospice: Lap of Love, Dr. Mary Gardner


Lap of Love is a network of veterinarians around the country whose goal is to empower every owner to care for their geriatric pets toward the end of life.

Co-Founder Dr. Mary Gardner explains how their philosophy centers around the human-animal bond and the need for that bond to be as undisturbed as possible during this most difficult time. Dr. Gardner says veterinary hospice is about peaceful endings, and preparing family members (including the pet) for the inevitable.

Actually, Lap of Love is about celebrating life – though it is also about offering a timely and peaceful ending – when the time is right.
