In general, it is best to bring your pet to hospital for most medical services. House calls are sometimes requested when the owner is unable to come to the hospital or when the pet can not be moved. Owners who are considering euthanasia for their terminally ill pets occasionally will request that this be done as a house call so that the pet is spared the last trip to the hospital. We are pleased to offer house calls as a service to our clients. House calls need to be scheduled in advance. Emergency house calls are difficult to arrange during office hours because it is difficult to rearrange the doctor's appointment schedule on short notice. The cost of a house call depends on the mileage from the hospital to your home and the length of time the doctor spends in your home.
