Are you super busy with absolutely no opportunity to wrestle your pet in their leash? All just to go to the Vet for a yearly checkup? Or is your furry friend ill, but you can’t get another day off work to take them? You may have another option.
With an In-Home or Visiting Veterinarian is increasingly common in today’s busy day in age, where convenience is key. But while it seems like a perfect combination, there are a couple of things to take into account before inviting an on the move vet care for your cherished pet.
HOW IS AN IN-HOME VET DIFFERENT THAN A TRADITIONAL VET?
An in the house or home call vet differs from a traditional veterinarian in that the vet comes to your home to care for your pets rather than you and your pets traveling to see the vet.
There are two types of travel vets’ to choose from:
One is a veterinarian that is associated with or functions exclusively for a clinic or hospital, and that clinic provides in-home treatments such as routine checks, heart-worm treatments, flea and tick repellent, vaccinations and a few also provide holistic and alternative treatments as well. In this case, you may have different vets come to treat your pets in your home since the in-home service is provided by the clinic or hospital instead of by a particular vet.
The other kind is alone mobile vet that has a whole clinic set up in a van that is specialized. This sort of vet is oftentimes not part of a local office, but often times recommended by your trusted vet if conventional vet services are no more cohesive with your lifestyle and the wellbeing of your pet. A traveling vet can often provide the majority of services delivered by visiting a traditional clinic or hospital such as x-rays, etc. and normally includes a clinic or hospital he or she works together when there are services required that are best administered in the hospital.
HERE ARE SOME COMMON REASONS TO CHOOSE A HOUSE CALL VETERINARIAN OVERTAKING YOUR PETS IN:
- You have multiple pets and the hassle of getting them to the vet is very Hard.
- Your cat or dog becomes very stressed and/or sick when riding in the car.
- Your pet does not do well around other animals, either because of fright or aggression.
- Your pet is just too ill or unable to move or travel easily.
BENEFITS TO THE CAREGIVER OF THE PET:
You no longer drive and don’t have any way to receive your pet to the vet. Since the veterinarian comes to you, you do not have to load your dog or cat into your car and drive, you do not have to wait in an uncomfortable waiting room along with other pets, you do not have to keep an eye on your children, your pets and the other pets in the room.
HOW MUCH WILL THIS CONVENIENCE COST ME?
Depending on the veterinarian and the type of service needed, there may be an extra charge for house calls. However, this isn’t always correct. Despite the very personalized service, house-call veterinarians aren’t necessarily more expensive than the traditional vet.
In conclusion, having a house call vet offers a wonderful deal of advantages to ease the stress and hassle of a traditional clinic or hospital. The cost of this service may be a bit higher than a normal clinic or hospital, but the convenience may really outweigh the costs. Be certain you verify that they can take care of any of your needs and that they are a trustworthy service locally.
