Today’s Veterinary Business Staff
The in-home hospice and euthanasia practice Lap of Love is marking 10 years in business.
The company, started by University of Florida veterinary school classmates Dani McVety, DVM, and Mary Gardner, DVM, today operates in 33 states and employs a network of more than 125 veterinarians. Since its founding, Lap of Love has provided end-of-life care to more than 180,000 pets.
“Our mission is to create a peaceful and personal experience for pets and the people who love them,” Dr. Gardner said.
The co-founders have spoken at conferences and other events to teach practitioners and veterinary students about end-of-life care.
“We believe all pets and their family deserve the most compassionate and supportive end-of-life experience,” Dr. McVety said.
Headquartered in Tampa, Florida, End of Love employs a customer service team to coordinate care and put pet owners in touch with a nearby house-call veterinarian.
