Lap of Love

Who We Are


Lap of Love is a network of veterinarians around the country (locations) whose goal is to empower every owner to care for their geriatric pets.  Our philosophy centers around the human-animal bond and the need for that bond to be as undisturbed as possible during this most difficult time.  The desire to bring this important service to families across the United States is slowly being realized as additional veterinarians begin working under the same philosophy.

Lap of Love is honored to have some of the most compassionate and empathetic vets working with us. 

Dani McVety, DVM and Mary Gardner, DVM are the founders 

of Lap of Love Veterinary Hospice, the largest network of veterinarians dedicated solely to end-of-life veterinary care.  As one of the first services of its kind, Lap of Love has quickly grown from one veterinarian in Tampa, Florida to over 50 vets around the United States in just 3 short years.  

Drs. McVety and Gardner frequently write and speak for professional and lay audiences on end-of-life veterinary topics in hopes of empowering both parties to seek the highest standards of care.  They have been featured on numerous local, national, and professional media outlets including ABC, Fox 13, University of Florida Alumni Magazine, Entrepreneur Magazine, DVM Newsmagazine, and many more. Both Drs. McVety and Gardner proudly graduated from the University of Florida College of Veterinary Medicine.
