Veterinary House Call Services
There’s no place like home. You, your home and the other members of your family are pretty much your pet’s entire universe. Your pets spend the majority of their lives in your home, so why not have our friendly staff come to you? Many pets can become overwhelmed and agitated in a traditional clinic setting. We have found that both dogs and cats are much more relaxed with our house call visits while surrounded by the comforts of home.
Please see below to learn about the services we provide on a house call basis, our approach to integrative veterinary medicine and meet our caring staff.
