I want to thank you all for your kindness.  Dr. Lappin, I felt so at peace with my decision after your talking with me.  I was really not sure what to do, I want to do the right thing, of course, and you put my mind at ease.  I miss my Rusty so much, sometimes I feel lost but I do know it was the right decision.  Thank you all once again for your kindness, your are the BEST!!!

Love, The H. family


Animal House Staff,

We would like to take a minute to thank you all for the wonderful care, love and support you brought to our family and most importantly the lab "Sammy".  You have all made one of the hardest times in a family's life a little bit easier and with each smile and generous service, you have helped my family begin the healing process.  Thank you for the wonderful card, poem and your continuous dedication to amimals.  Lots of love and happiness to each and every one of you.

Love always, Jessica & Jeffrey.


Dear Dr. Lapping & Staff,

Many, many thanks for taking such excellent care of my princesses, Lexi and Tori.  They have been running, jumping and wrestling again.  They are back training.  In fact, Lexi completed her BN title with a 193 (2nd place) and RN with a 100 for 2nd place!

Thanks once again, I am very grateful! Sincerely, Kathy W.


Pam and I wanted to thank you for the compassion you showed us and our cat Kismit this past week as we made difficult decisions around how best to handle her disease.  Never easy but each of you showed great understanding and we appreciated it and are truly grateful for you all being our vet.

Sincerely, Jeff L.


Dear wonderful Dr. Lappin & sweet Animal House Staff,

There are no words to express our appreciation for the exceptional care you gave our sweet, loving Honey!  She was our dove, our baby girl and will always be a part of us!  Thank you for helping us realize it was time to say goodbye and ending Honey's beautiful life so humanely-she will be greatly missed.

With heartfelt gratitude! John & Christine R.


Dear Dr. Lappin & Staff,

Ed & I wanted you to know how much we appreciated your help with Bernie.  Both of us were struck with your sensitivity to our loss.  The sympathetic card was most appreciated.  We will cherish Bernie's paw print.

Dear Dr.Lappin.

There really are no words to express the thanks and gratitude that we have for all you've done for Gracie.  You never know when something is going to turn your life upside down and it's the people that are there for you when that happens that make the difference.  You were there for Gracie and our family.  Thank you for ALL you have done for her. 

Many thanks, the C. family.


Dear Doc!

Thank you so much for meeting with us yesterday to go over Kassie's diagnosis and meds. You are a natural teacher and we always appreciate that, as professors.  We appreciate everyone in your office, as well.  We trust all of you with the lives of our kids.

With deep appreciation, Kim & Mat


To the Animal House Staff,

Thank you for the dignified way you handled Lakota's passing.  For 15 years, she filled in a whole lot of love for us after we lost our son.  Keep up the good work & thanks.

Dear Dr.Lappin and Staff,

We received the condolence card and the cast of Fracks' paw print.  To be honest with you, we both still tear up when we look at the paw cast.  Your care of our animals has been nothing short of outstanding.  We originally came to you because of your pricing, we stayed because of your love for animals and your understanding of the relationship between a pet and its' caretaker.  When Frack, our little orange cat, was sick you gave him an extra year of life and let us know when it was time to let him go before he got so bad that he would suffer.  Although the pain of losing Frack is still fresh, so is our appreciation of what you did for him and therefore for us.  It's been my experience that few people truly find their purpose in life.  You have surely found yours.  Thank you again for your love and concern for our animals.

Sincerely, Skip B. and Cheryl J.
