Our mobile veterinarians examine pets in their favorite spot - a comfy couch, a cozy pet bed, or even your lap! See how we work to keep pets relaxed and happy at home.
As part of our commitment to treating your whole pet, your veterinarian will observe your cat or dog, thoroughly examine their musculoskeletal system, and make recommendations when necessary.
Evaluation of your pet’s orthopedic health will begin with a review of your pet’s history and a thorough checkup of all the systems of the body.
A general orthopedic assessment includes specific tests that can be carried out during a home visit. These include an evaluation of your pet’s muscles, joints, ligaments, and bones. We may recommend additional tests, x-rays, or a referral to a veterinary orthopedic specialist (for an additional cost).
Based on your pet’s examination, our veterinarians will work with you to make the best plan for your pet, which may include medication, pain management, and other recommendations to support your pet’s quality of life.
Before the end of your in-home visit, your veterinary team will provide any necessary prescriptions and referrals, and schedule follow-up appointments.
Dr. Kiefer and Erin were a great team. Arrived exactly on time per notification - no time wasted in a waiting room. Rolo the dog had his vaccines and a thorough exam of his limp and other hip arthritis, leading to an x-ray and some great recommendations of medications and other therapies. Minot the cat had a biopsy on a lump - he’s a fighter and it wouldn’t have gone well at an animal hospital, but at home he was matter-of-fact about it. Great experience!
