What advantages does a mobile vet have?
When we examine your pet, we take note of a whole range of things that can be affected by anxiety. For example, even very basic parameters such
as heart rate and respiration rate can be altered by stress. Yet these things can tell us so much about how a pet is doing. Take the cat with hypertension (high-blood pressure), for example, one whose medications may be adjusted based upon the blood pressure reading we obtain. Cats in veterinary practice are commonly stressed and stress can increase blood pressure. So, you can see how an environment conducive to showing a pet in their truest state can help us to assess, diagnose and even treat problems more appropriately. And we feel that the home environment offers just this opportunity. As do facemask-free examinations, whereby the patient is allowed to see and read our calm facial expressions as vets and owners; just yet another simple and effective way of putting them at ease.
Other benefits to in-home veterinary care include the sense of teamwork that it can inspire. We see you in your home, we see the environment
your pet is living in, and we can help tailor a more holistic approach to their care and recovery. Veterinary care is at it’s best when you as the
pet’s owner are fully involved, and we strive for open, honest and proactive relationships with our clients.
So, what do we offer?
We offer many of the usual veterinary services: vaccinations, health examinations, parasite control, nail clipping, minor wound management, lump assessment, weight clinics, blood and urine diagnostics, ear examination and ultrasound scanning to name a few. If your pet is in need, please just ask
What don’t we offer?
We value our patients as sentient beings who deserve the right to a dignified end. Knowing that euthanasia is absolutely the right decision for a pet is integral to this. Therefore, we don’t view euthanasia necessarily as a first-line solution to a pet’s ills. Instead, we prefer to take some time and make some effort to understand the cause of a pet’s illness, employing ethical and appropriate diagnostic techniques in order to do so.
Only then, can we truly deliver compassionate euthanasia and whole heartedly feel that we have acted in the best interests of a pet.
