WHAT TO EXPECT
What to expect with our housecall veterinary services.
Allow yourself enough time for your appointment; be sure to have your pets in a place where they will be easy to get to and examine. A small room/bathroom may work well for nervous or hard-to-catch cats. Be sure your pet is at home and cannot hide under a bed or porch.
Most routine appointments take between 30 minutes to 1 hour. Seeing multiple pets during the same visit may, of course, take longer, as will visits for sick pets, behavioral consults, etc. You will have my undivided attention, and we will have time to address any questions or concerns.
We will bring everything necessary for your pet’s appointment into your home, including a digital scale to accurately record your pet’s weight.
We also love having pets come onto our full-service mobile clinic! This is necessary for X-rays and procedures requiring general anesthesia (see “Services” page for details), but we can also perform all routine exams, vaccinations, diagnostic tests, etc in the truck.
Please let me know as soon as possible if you need to cancel or reschedule your appointment. You will be responsible for the housecall fee if you cancel your scheduled appointment after I have already arrived at your home, or if you are not at home for your scheduled appointment (this does not apply to euthanasia appointments).
Updated Protocols During Covid-19 Pandemic
We are still providing housecall services during this unprecedented time of Covid-19. However, all pets will need to be brought out to our mobile clinic (dogs on a leash, cats in a secure carrier) as we are no longer entering clients’ homes (some exceptions made for home euthanasias). We will wear masks, and clients who need to stay with their pets will be required to wear a mask. We also encourage social distancing to be maintained as much as possible according to CDC guidelines. We are disinfecting all common surfaces, door handles, rails, etc as usual before and after each appointment. Thank you for your understanding and patience!
