Keeping on top of your pet’s health should be one of your main priorities as a pet parent no matter if you have one pet or seven. However, getting your pet to the veterinarian in the first place can be another story entirely. Some pets may have limited mobility while others associate car rides with dreaded trips to the clinic and make transportation…difficult, to say the least. If your dog or cat makes visits to the veterinarian a major chore, don’t fret as hope is not lost. At BetterVet, we specialize in mobile pet care which means we come to you, and your home becomes our clinic. Let’s take a look at three ways your pet can benefit from mobile pet care at home.
Home Visits Mean Less Stress for Your Pet
When your pet is given the chance to remain calm at home before, during, and after their medical visit, their veterinary appointments are much smoother. Their general relaxation allows your veterinarian to get a more complete understanding of their overall health. Instead of your dog or cat being skittish or fearful while waiting in a room devoid of anything they find familiar, it’s easier for them to remain composed while occupying a trusted space.
Your veterinarian’s ability to conduct a holistic examination for your pet’s condition can mean the difference between catching a problem early and letting an illness or injury go untreated. Helping your pet maintain optimal health is what our veterinarians strive for, and being able to examine a relaxed pet allows them to better perform their job and provide incredible care.
Not everyone works a typical 9-5 job or has a car, so finding a way to the veterinarian or finding one that is open 24/7 can be a huge hurdle for many pet owners. With home visits, the entire process is much more streamlined. If you have multiple pets, you can tackle all of their check-ups in one single appointment as opposed to scheduling multiple appointments that take up your entire day.
Additionally, you can rest assured knowing that our mobile vets will not be limited by your home environment. They will have access to digital stethoscopes, mobile ultrasounds, and blood and intraocular pressure monitoring equipment. At the end of the day, having your veterinarian come to you offers complete convenience for both you and your pet.
No More Difficult Car Rides
A big speed bump for a lot of pet parents is getting their pet in the car to go to the vet. Pets can become elusive and aggressive when they realize they are going to a veterinary visit. While some people have come up with clever tricks to get their pets in the car without major outbursts, most others are left scratching their heads in confusion. While your pet certainly doesn’t want to hurt you, their potential aggression is merely a result of stress and fear.
When you choose mobile pet care, you’re removing problematic car rides. No more wrangling your cat into their carrier or tempting your dog into the car with treats and failing. Instead, they can hang out at home and wait for the veterinarian to come to their turf. Not having to worry about or struggle through difficult car rides can make a world of difference when it comes to caring for your pet’s health, and we’re sure Fido/Fifi appreciate it too.
