What are the benefits of in-home vet care?

Benefits for pets 
Pets often associate carriers, car rides, and vet offices with anxiety. By examining your pet at home, it not only eliminates stress and fear, but also allows our doctors to better assess your pet. Mobile vet care is also easier on senior and fearful pets. 

Like a brick-and-mortar clinic, BetterVet performs a wide range of services, but in the comfort of your home. This includes Wellness and Sick exams, vaccinations, virtual vet visits, and more.

Benefits for multi-pet families
If you have more than one pet, you can combine their examinations into one single home visit appointment, saving you time and hassle. Each pet will have a separate examination fee, but you will only be charged one travel fee for all the pets in the family.

Benefits for pet parents with busy lifestyles
In-home veterinary care is a more convenient choice for people with busy schedules, as well as those with work-from-home and hybrid work arrangements. Rather than having to take time out of the work day to drive a pet to and from an appointment and wait to be seen, we come to you. We even have same-day and next-day appointments in most locations.

Benefits for senior pet parents 
Mobile vet care is a stress-free option for senior pet parents as it eliminates the need to wrestle pets into carriers and into the car to transport them to a clinic appointment.

Benefits for pet parents with transportation or mobility concerns
In-home veterinary care is not just a great option for pets, but also for pet parents with transportation limitations or strength and mobility concerns.

How should I prepare for a home visit?

Please have a copy of your pet’s medical records, especially if this is your first appointment. To prepare your pet, try to remain relaxed and calm leading up to your appointment, as your pet will pick up on your anxiety level.

Indulge your dog with their favorite toy or treat when we arrive. This helps reinforce positive, happy thoughts with every vet care visit.

If your cat tends to be skittish when people visit your home, place them in a comfortable, enclosed space where they feel safe, like a bathroom or closet, to minimize stress.

Please remember that we have a no-smoking policy during in-home visits and refrain from smoking during your appointment. If you need to take a smoke break, please do so outside.

What kind of services does BetterVet offer?
What should I do in case of an emergency?
At this time, we do not provide emergency services. If your pet is experiencing a medical emergency, go immediately to one of the 24-hour emergency vet clinics nearest you. 
Should I book a home visit or a video call?
Virtual visits give you quick and easy access to an experienced veterinarian and can provide peace of mind. They are recommended for non-emergent medical conditions and are best for pet parents concerned about their pet but are not certain that the issue warrants an in-home visit.
