What To Expect
Appointments are conducted at the patient’s home on our mobile clinic. We look forward to visiting your home to meet you and your pet(s), and in doing so, providing a convenient way for your pet(s) to receive veterinary care while decreasing the time commitment and stress level often associated with traveling to a veterinary clinic.
We are happy to address any questions you may have about your first house call before the actual appointment.
Here are some general ways in which you can prepare for, and what you can expect at your first visit:
When scheduling appointments, we provide a 30 minute buffer to allow for traffic and other possible delays. If we are running late, we will contact you as soon as possible to update you as to the estimated time of arrival.
The first wellness visit for one pet typically lasts about 30 minutes. This provides sufficient time to obtain a thorough history, perform a comprehensive examination, present findings and recommendations, administer vaccines and/or treatments, and respond to questions or concerns. With multi-pet households, an additional 15 minutes is typically needed per pet as there tends to be some overlap in history and lifestyle and often pets are on similar vaccination schedules.
One of the most difficult, and stressful, aspects of taking your cat to a veterinary clinic is having to capture him/her and drive to the clinic. Because we treat your cat(s) in our mobile clinic, right outside your home, we eliminate the need for the stressful care ride.
If you know your cat is typically challenging to catch, likes to hide, and/or can be aggressive, we kindly recommend confining the cat to a small room, such as a bathroom, to minimize stress. We can than place your cat inside your carrier (or our own) and walk him/her out to our equipped mobile clinic.
We will make appropriate recommendations based on your pet’s temperament so as to make the visit as relaxed as possible. We are very well versed in handling pets of many different personalities, including very scared and very assertive ones, and we approach each pet as an individual and tailor the visit accordingly.
