Why Use a House Call Veterinarian?
Compared to an appointment at a traditional clinic, with a house call, you will receive more time to visit with Dr. Stacie about each pet’s history and any issues you may wish to address. Examinations and consultations are much more personal and can be tailored to each household’s specific needs.
Busy working professionals, parents, seniors, and households with multiple pets enjoy the convenience of having Dr. Stacie visit their home. Most pets are much more comfortable, calm, and relaxed in their own environment. Rather than taking them to a clinic where the smells, sounds, and sights can be unfamiliar and scary, many pets are much more tolerant of exams, vaccinations, and other routine treatments performed in their home.
Households with multiple pets may find it saves them the time and headache of making multiple trips to the clinic. Geriatric or large pets that have trouble getting into the car tend to be much more at ease at home. Cats generally do not enjoy car rides and those pets with motion sickness will be much happier having their exam and treatment performed at home.
Having Dr. Stacie come to your house is convenient for you and less stress for both you and your pet.
If conditions are diagnosed that require anesthesia or further, more advanced diagnostics, Dr. Stacie can refer you and your pet to one of the many local specialty hospitals.
Patients that would not be good candidates for a house call are those that are aggressive toward strangers in their home. Also, for the safety of patients that must be anesthetized in order to examine due to severe aggression, they should be taken to a traditional full service veterinary hospital that has the additional staff and equipment needed for safe sedation and handling.
