What Our Clients Say

Genevieve Davis
BetterVet Austin

Amazing experience with Dr. Kingsley and her assistant. She did surgery on one of my cats and it was so convenient to be able to stay home. The prices are similar to using a vet clinic. I will definitely be using her again. With multiple pets it is so much easier to have someone come to me.

DR. Palmeri came was great with the dog and removed the Tumor off of tillys back without a hitch. Tilly was calm and less stressed as she would be if she was dropped off at a vet office. We plan on using the service more and will refer them.
Caryn Wegerbauer
BetterVet Eugene
There is a mobile service fee added to the regular visit fee. It’s worth the convenience. They gave treats to ensure my dog was comfortable and it was nice having the appointment right here in our living room. This was just a checkup and shots. My mom had the same company visit her house for a surgery for her cat, and they showed up in a van, conducting the surgery right there in the van. Very convenient.

Dr. Kingsley and her team have been taking care of my pets for many years. She is incredible! She's an amazing diagnostician and you can tell she cares so deeply about the pets. Her follow-up is very thorough in giving test results and any other follow-up information. The ability to do surgeries right from the mobile van is so convenient for families and their pets! Dr. Kingsley is the absolute best!!!!
