House Call Preparation & What To Expect

House Call Preparation

A few simple things are all that is needed to help make your house call appointment go smoothly.  It’s  a good idea to have your pets where they can be found easily.  Cats, especially, need to be located and we recommend placing them in a small room like a bathroom or walk-in closet, as long as there are no appliances or spots where they can hide.

If you are a new client, please fill out the New Client Information Form prior to the visit and please have your pets’ previous medical records available, if there are any.

Then simply relax until our arrival.

We will call to confirm your appointment and make sure that you are ready.

What To Expect During Our Visit

A house call appointment is more relaxed and less formal than a traditional office visit.  Appointments are longer, allowing you plenty of time to discuss your concerns. A first visit can last about 45 minutes to 1 hour for one pet and allow an additional 30 minutes for each additional pet.

Follow-up visits are usually 30 to 45 minutes depending on what is needed.

The examination itself can be anywhere in your home that you and your pets are comfortable as long as we have enough room to work.
