Frequently Asked Questions

Why use a housecall veterinarian?

     Some pets become extremely distressed from a car ride or spending time in the waiting room of a busy veterinary hospital. Some pets are difficult to move due to size or illness, and for some owners, busy schedules make office visits a challenge. Senior citizens and multi-pet owners can also benefit from a house-call service.

What should I expect during my veterinary housecall?

     Our team will meet with you and your pet at your home to perform a comprehensive wellness exam and any necessary diagnostic tests.    After reviewing information about your petʼs lifestyle and any of your concerns, we will perform the exam and then discuss the findings and our recommendations. 


     We are happy to discuss or forward any medical information to other veterinarians, including specialists if necessary.

How should I prepare for my housecall appointment?

  1.   Gather any veterinary records for you pet, including vaccination dates and prescription medication info. 

  2.   Keep your pet's schedule as routine as possible prior to our visit. 

  3.   Have your pet's collar and leash available.   

  4.   Contact your community's guard gate to allow our team to access to your community, if gated. 

  5.   Please notify us in advance of any special circumstances, ie., shy/aggressive pet, gate access codes, etc.
