Benefits Of House Calls

Less stress for pets

Even happy, confident dogs shiver and refuse treats when taken to treatment rooms for lab tests or vaccines. All pets are happier at home but house calls are particularly helpful for:

  1. Pets or owners who have difficulty walking or getting in and out of cars
  2. Families with young children – no more juggling kids and pets
  3. Anxious, fearful or aggressive pets
  4. Immune compromised pets – Very young or old or pets on immunosuppressive medications
  5. Multiple pets can be examined in one visit

More convenience and less stress for you

More personal attention, longer appointments, no hospital waiting rooms.

Diagnostic testing in the comfort of your pet’s home

Private personalized care and accessibility

Better communication leads to optimal care for your pet.

Hospice and End of Life Care

Hospice support as your pet nears the end of its life and ultimately, euthanasia in the comfort of your home environment.

Observation of pets in their own environment

Clinical signs of confusing medical or behavioral problems are not masked by fear of visiting a veterinary hospital.

Collaboration with critical care hospitals and specialists to ensure seamless care of my patients

If specialty or emergency care is required, I will help to ensure that your pet is in good hands.

General surgical and dental care by an experienced doctor that you trust

I will handle my patients’ general surgery and dental needs at a local hospital.

Costs of examinations, medical care, diagnostic tests, vaccines and medications provided at the time of the exam are comparable to most local hospitals, however, most medications and food can be purchased at lower costs through my online pharmacy. There is an additional house call fee, which can be divided between pets in the same household or shared between neighboring households. Most people will consider the value of undivided and personal attention by an experienced, compassionate veterinarian and her assistant well worth the cost.
