LAP OF LOVE
When I started Lap of Love in South Florida over a year ago, I never could have imagined what a needed service it was in the area. Then I soon realized... I needed help... South Florida is BIG - especially when you are talking Miami Dade to Palm Beach county - and fighting traffic on 95, the Turnpike and the Sawgrass Expressway!
Luckily I found Dr. Nicole Sabo and she has been with us for 6 months now - time has flown. Dr. Nicole is the 3rd veterinarian to be apart of Lap of Love - the first two are myself and Dr. Dani McVety. :)

Since she has been with us for the longest - I thought she deserved to be the first 'Veterinarian Spotlight'!
Dr. Nicole has lived all over! She was Born in Baton Rouge, LA then moved to Texas, then Holland, then Connecticut (spent most time there), then New York then Ohio, then New Jersey, then Philadelphia and now calls Ft. Lauderdale, Florida home! (Whew - I'm tired just reading that)
Like most people, the 'sunshine' brought Dr. Nicole to south Florida. :) She says that it seemed like people down here really had a large variety of fun stuff to do all the time, not just in the summer. And we do!
Dr. Nicole is also an Emergency Vet (mostly overnights) in Palm Beach Florida. She likes ER work because she never knows what's going to come in the door next - anything from a laceration to a puppy with worms to a vestibular cat. She likes diagnosing/working up diseases, and on ER she gets to be a mini-"House" (Great Show - they need one for vets!)
Dr. Nicole loves being apart of Lap of Love. She says that the owners are all so sweet and thankful, "It's nice to be around people who care so much about their animals." And she also says that she loves working with all the other Lap of Love veterinarians! (we are a cool group if I do say so myself)

Odd fact: If she could own any animal (besides the typical domesticated species) she would own a chimpanzee!
Dr. Nicole has only fond memories all her experiences working with us. The one that sticks out in her mind the most however is when she was leaving a family's home and their 8 month old boxer scooted out the open door, bolted over a fence and through a field at lightening pace - of which she found her self running after! It finally came home.

She also succumbed to a cute little kitty needing a new home at a client's house. The client had found an outdoor cat that recently gave birth and well... Dr. Nicole couldn't resist. She named her Athena. Little Athena has a foot fetish - she loves cuddling, batting at, attacking, licking - anything really, as long as it involves feet!!
She also has mini-wrestling battles with Dr. Nicole's little dog Chuchi where it's a pretty even match (so far.... we'll see what happens once she's full grown). She also loves climbing up and down the blinds :-( but Dr. Nicole says, "She's so cute, I forgive her!"
I've received so many lovely emails about Dr. Nicole - here is once that I just got this weekend, "Dr. Sabo and her assistant were professional and compassionate. Thank you for being there for us, so that we could punctuate a noble life the way we wanted to."
Thank you Dr. Nicole for helping so many families!
Dr. Sabo helps families in Broward and Miami Dade counties including North Miami, Aventura, Hollywood, Davie, Cooper City, Coral Springs, Weston, Davie, Ft. Lauderdale, Plantation, Pembroke Pines, Tamarac, Wilton Manors and Oakland Park.
