Our Practice Philosophy
Veterinary House Calls will provide professional veterinary care to your dogs and cats, specifically geared towards their humane treatment. We practice common sense medicine with uncompromising honesty and will never recommend a test or treatment unless it is absolutely necessary. We will treat your home as if it is our own and will probably grow to love your family pet, even if it doesn’t love us back!
The focus of our practice is on prevention, so with every house call your pet will receive a comprehensive physical exam, vaccinations (if appropriate), and any medicine or pet care product that your pet may need from our fully stocked pharmacy.
Dogs and cats can’t tell you when they’re sick. Twenty-five years of clinical experience helps but if we need a closer look into what's ailing your pet, we are outfitted to perform the appropriate diagnostics. The samples for blood panels, fecal exams, urinalysis, biopsies, bacteriological cultures, etc. can be easily obtained in the stress-less environment of your home.
Dental prophylaxis, abscess treatments and laceration suturing are examples of simple surgical procedures that can be easily performed inside your home with injectable anesthetics. Postoperative pain medication is always available.
Just like people, your pets will endure a considerable amount of suffering between when they become terminally ill and when they die "naturally"... but they don't have to. Euthanasia is the last gift of love that you can give to your ailing pet who has given you a lifetime of friendship. Also, just like people, no one wants to die in a hospital. Home euthanasia is a gentle and compassionate way of saying goodbye to your furry family members.
