A House Call Veterinarian can offer many conveniences that traditional animal hospitals cannot. Having us come to your home in Huntington eliminates transportation stress and waiting room anxiety experienced by many pets in a trip to a veterinarian’s office; they’ll be happier and more comfortable. A Mobile Veterinary House Call is also the ideal way to have multiple pets receive their veterinary care without having to make multiple trips to a clinic. Below is a list with information on the mobile services we offer:

Physical Examinations:

A physical examination is an evaluation of the body and its functions using inspection, palpation (feeling with the hands), percussion (tapping with the fingers), and auscultation (listening). A complete health assessment also includes gathering information about an animal’s medical history and lifestyle in order develop a diagnosis, prognosis and treatment plan.

Wellness Care:

The goal of a pet wellness program is to prevent or minimize disease or injury, improve your pet’s quality of life, and help your pet enjoy a healthy life for as long as possible.

Chronic and Minor Illness Management:

A chronic disease is a disease that is long-lasting or recurrent. A minor illness is any condition which is self-limiting and does not prevent the patient from carrying out their normal functions for more than a short period of time.

Comprehensive Diagnostics:

Allows for the recognition of a disease or condition by its outward signs and symptoms in combination with the analysis of the underlying physiological/biochemical changes.

Vaccinations:

Immunizations work by stimulating the immune system, the natural disease-fighting system of the body. We abide by the vaccine recommendations set forth by the American Veterinary Medical Association.

Parasite Control:

We develop programs for the specific needs of  your pet and your own particular environmental situation. We will review with you the best ways to control fleas, ticks, and other parasites in your house, in your yard and on your pet.

Nutritional Counseling:

We will provide guidance regarding your pet’s nutritional needs for each life stage, including dietary requirements for growth, weight maintenance and performance.

Geriatric Health Care Programs:

Helps families care for older pets, while encouraging as much independence as possible by identifying problems and offering solutions for each individual situation. For pets who have exhausted all medical alternatives, we offer in-home hospice care.

At-Home Euthanasia Services:

When the time comes, euthanasia of a beloved pet can be very traumatic for everyone involved and we recommend that it be performed in the comfort of the pet’s home.  Home euthanasia is usually a very humane and peaceful experience for the pet.  It also provides the pet owner with the opportunity to grieve for their pet in a private setting outside of a busy animal hospital.
