Pets that are fearful out of their own environment, too sick to be moved, suffer from motion sickness or hate crates and car rides will greatly prefer being seen by their veterinarian in their own home, maybe on their bed, maybe on their couch.
Families with children, busy professionals, seniors and multi-pet households will love the convenience and ease of a house call.
For the veterinarian, being able to see the pet in their own environment, having more time to listen to the client and examine the pet makes house call work a great way to practice high quality veterinary medicine.
Exceptions to this are animals that are aggressive to strangers in their home. In this case it is safer for everyone for the pet to go an animal hospital where there are trained support staff to help take care of your pet.
Veterinary House Calls for Addison and Southern Chittenden Counties Vermont
To prepare for a house call please have any pertinent medical records available. If they are lengthy or involved please email them prior to the appointment so we can be better prepared. Make sure kitties are inside, and if fearful, contained to a small room so they don’t mysteriously disappear when we arrive.
