We understand that it can be stressful for both pets and human family members to travel to the veterinary clinic. We understand that providing care in the comfort of a family home is often preferred. Many families may benefit from house call appointments, especially those with cats who become anxious in cars/carriers and those with multiple pets or large dogs who are difficult to transport.
Most wellness care and many diagnostics can be performed during house calls. We are also able to provide hospice and end of life care in the comfort of your home. If advanced diagnostics such as x-rays or ultrasound are warranted, a trip to the clinic may still be necessary. In those cases, we are happy to assist with transport or make recommendations to reduce stress to the patient.
The fee for traveling to your home covers car and fuel costs, as well as our time away from the clinic. The distance from your home to the clinic will therefore determine the exact cost. Please contact us if you have any additional questions.
