Dr. Amy Adoryan grew up in Cleveland, Ohio, and although I am a city girl, I loved growing up near a Great Lake and enjoy driving out to the country to experience nature and the outdoors. Fortunately, Ohio offers both! 

I was always in tune with my childhood pets and was the first to notice if they needed medical attention. However, I did not decide to become a veterinarian until I attended college at Cleveland State University. After obtaining my veterinary degree from Ohio State University, I joined a small animal general medicine practice in Cleveland. I am passionate about wellness and preventive care, and high-quality, high-volume spay and neuter (HQHVSN) services. I have realized, however, that one of my favorite parts of veterinary medicine is the ability to give pets a peaceful passing. This is the aspect clients most appreciate, and I find most rewarding.

Dr. Nicole Santabarbara received her veterinary degree from the Ohio State University College of Veterinary Medicine. She started her career in general practice but soon found her calling in veterinary hospice and end-of-life care. She was the first veterinarian to establish the Cleveland market for Lap of Love and has been passionately providing these services to her community for the last 3 years. She is currently working towards the Veterinary Hospice and Euthanasia Practitioner certification through Lap of Love and the Peaceful Euthanasia Certification through CAETA (Companion Animal Euthanasia Training Academy). She finds great fulfillment in helping pets stay comfortable in the last stage of life, as well as helping families give their fur babies the peaceful send-off they deserve.`` When she isn’t working, she enjoys biking in the Metroparks with her boyfriend, trying new restaurants, and snuggling with her dog, Reggie, and cat, Olive.
