Veterinary House Calls for Dogs and Cats, in the Phoenix Metropolitan area of Arizona.
There's no way around it: our pets need veterinary care now and then. And with few exceptions, they hate to go to the vet! Save yourself the time, trouble and anxiety of taking your pets to the vet, and let a mobile veterinarian come to you.
My services include physical examinations, routine and preventive healthcare, vaccinations, diagnostic laboratory testing, health certificates, micro chipping, as well as gentle and compassionate home euthanasia.
Beyond the basics, there are many common problems in veterinary medicine that can be diagnosed and treated at home. Good examples of this include: itching and scratching; problems with the eyes, ears or skin; mild to moderate arthritis; minor wounds or lacerations.
During a house call, I may need to collect samples from your pet for outside laboratory testing. Common tests include Complete Blood Count and Blood Chemistry Panels, Heartworm Testing, Feline Viral Testing, Urinalysis, Fecal Examination, Bacterial and Fungal Cultures.
No matter how much we'd like it, there are just some things that can't be done in the home. For situations that require anesthesia, dentistry, surgery, x-rays, ultrasonography, echocardiography or hospital care I will refer you to one of the many very qualified specialists in the Phoenix Metropolitan area.
If you are interested in a house call for your dog or cat, or if you have any questions, please call me at (623)979-8000 or send an email to me at: 605-978-1296

Anything that can be done in an exam room in a veterinary hospital can be done in the comfort of your home.
Advanced Home Care:
Sometimes, older and debilitated pets need frequent veterinary nursing care: subcutaneous fluid administration, daily injections of insulin or other drugs, regular blood monitoring, etc..
If you'd rather not transport your pet every time it needs treatment, home visits can be a welcome relief!
