Because of the shorter lifespan of our pets, we stress the importance of an annual physical examination. Thorough check-ups and preventive care can help alleviate serious health problems. Physical Examination:
House call veterinarians offer many conveniences that traditional animal hospitals cannot. One of the biggest of those is overcoming the fear and trauma that many animals experience when taken from their home to a veterinary hospital. Many animals release pheromones (chemical scent signals) under traumatic conditions that linger in the air and may cause fear reactions in animals that detect them.
In addition to the benefits for your pet, a house call may make more sense for many owners. Since you won't have to gather up your pets, drive to the clinic, wait to see the veterinarian and drive back home, there is less time wasted for you. Frequently, house call veterinarians offer greater freedom in scheduling appointments. You will also receive more personalized attention and, generally, an extended period of time spent with the veterinarian. Many house call veterinarians also provide emergency care for their clients.
By examining your pet in its own environment where it is more secure, your house call veterinarian can better evaluate behavior and conditions which may be caused or aggravated by their environment. In addition, there is a lower risk of being exposed to diseases that may be floating around in a hospital waiting room. This is especially important for very young or very old pets that do not have good immunity and for pets with weakened immune systems.
Routine physical exams are done on an annual bases. If at any other time your pet's health is in question, scheduling an appointment for a complete physical exam can be arranged.
If you ever feel that your pet needs emergency treatment do not hesitate to call. We will work to see you ASAP or try to schedule you for a priority visit.
Generally, our practice is limited to Dogs, Cats and Horses, but from time to time we have been available to see other animals on and off the farm including; Goats, Sheep and Llamas.
