Personalized Care

Our veterinarians provide the best personalized care, so each individual pet receives specialized attention that they deserve.

When to Schedule Your Pet's Vaccine Shots

Our veterinary team will work with you to come up with a vaccine schedule for your pet, which is customized based on their age, lifestyle, and geographical location. Typically, vaccines and boosters are bundled with our Wellness Exams. 

Puppies & Kittens

New puppies and kittens are more susceptible to diseases, so we recommend they receive their initial vaccines before socializing with other pets. During a Puppy and Kitten Wellness Exam, our veterinarians will make sure your pet is developing properly and is on track with all necessary vaccines.

Annual Boosters

Annual boosters are an essential component of your pet’s wellness, maintaining their immunity against diseases. Our mobile pet vaccinations will keep your pets up-to-date without the hassle and anxiety associated with traveling to a clinic.

Before Boarding or Travel

If you’re planning a trip with your pet, either domestic or international, specific vaccines may be required. Check travel guidelines beforehand and schedule any necessary vaccinations with us to ensure a smooth and safe travel experience.

After Pet Adoption

New pet parents should ensure that their furry friends are up-to-date with core and non-core vaccines. In-home veterinary care is a wonderful option for new and adopted pets, as it minimizes both stress and disruption for you and them.

What Our Clients Say

Review
Heather Gingerich
BetterVet Seattle

Dr. Shana Kitchen was great. Our nervous dog Lilah had two failed trips to our regular vet where she wouldn’t let them examine her or give her the vaccine she needed. Dr. Kitchen was skilled at getting Lilah to warm up to her and able to giver her the vaccine. What a relief. Highly recommend.

We had our first appointment with "BetterVet" and it was a great experience. We first discussed our cats and their history and after getting comfortable with the cats each was taken from our house to the mobile van for treatment. Both cats seemed to enjoy the team and got their vaccinations and health check up. We then spoke about their diet and maintenance care after the visit. I highly recommended "the BetterVet team" if you have cats. They are much more comfortable if they can avoid a car ride and be seen at home.

They were amazing! Set up to get my pup her first visit and rabies shot bc she gets bad anxiety in the car, they came and treated her so well and patient! She didn’t seem bothered at all, and was even walking to them at the end of the visit! Also gave me so much information on the next year of my pups life, so well worth it!

BetterVet Chicago
Thank goodness for this wonderful at home service. I have a young dog who was mistreated at a nail trim and now is very fearful of any vet or grooming services. Our regular vet suggested trying a mobile service as our last hope for care. "The BetterVet veterinarian" is so kind and patient and helped formulate a plan that worked - even after a round of vaccines where my drama queen puppy sounded like he was being murdered, she said “that went great!” She and her team are miracle workers. Yes, you will pay a bit more than in-office vet services but you are getting a lot more. I would give 10 stars if I could.

BetterVet made it so easy for me to get my fur baby his vaccines. He is a big boy and hates to go to the veterinarian, so that for me is a struggle. "The BetterVet veterinarian" is great. Thanks to BetterVet, they made it super easy for me. I would for sure recommend BetterVet.

BetterVet Portland
This was amazing! What a better option for animals than the trauma of a car ride and strange,cold place w/ strangers. They were so attentive, answered all my questions, gentle with the vaccines and didn't try and sell me a bunch of unnecessary pet supplies I don't need. Having the Dr. in your home was the best experience with a vet I've ever had. I cannot recommend them enough! I will make sure to tell everyone that this is an option for your family as many people have no idea this has even become a possibility at a decent price. Worth. Every. Penny.

"Our BetterVet veterinarian" is an amazing vet. We were in a jam and she came to the rescue in helping us make sure our dogs were vaccinated before getting boarded. She went way above and beyond. BetterVet has been a great experience for us so far.

This is our first time using BetterVet and we are pleased with the visit! This has been the best visit our pup has had. Dr. is professional, knowledgeable and very informative. She helped our big boy feel comfortable and gave him his shots with no issues.

I have known and used "a BetterVet veterinarian" as my veterinarian for more than 20 years. From first shots, to the final moments, "our BetterVet veterinarian" is there. Oh yeah! House calls rock!!

Included in Our Mobile Pet Vaccines Service

BetterVet offers mobile vaccinations for pets, including core and non-core vaccines. Together, you’ll make a vaccination schedule that works for you and keeps your pet healthy, up-to-date, and protected from transmissible disease.

Core Vaccines

Your BetterVet veterinarian will recommend when and what core vaccines are necessary for your pet.  Core vaccines for dogs include rabies and DHPP (distemper, adenovirus, parainfluenza, parvovirus). Core vaccines for cats are typically rabies and FVRCP  (rhinotracheitis, calicivirus, panleukopenia).

Non-Core and Lifestyle Vaccines

Depending on your pet’s lifestyle and where you live, your veterinarian may also recommend non-core vaccines tailored to your pet’s specific needs. Our veterinarians will advise you on the best options for your pet, but non-core vaccines can often include: feline leukemia for cats, canine leptospirosis, bordetella (kennel cough), Lyme, and influenza vaccines, or even vaccines for specific toxins like Western diamondback rattlesnake.

Ongoing Support

Our veterinarians remain a resource for you even after your appointment. Whether you have concerns about post-vaccine care or general questions about your pet’s vaccination needs, we’re here to provide guidance and support. A virtual vet visit is a great option when you have pet health questions but aren’t sure if they need to be seen for an in-home visit. 

Should My Pet Be Seen By a Veterinarian?

This is one of the most common questions from pet parents, and with good reason, as it’s natural to worry about your pet’s health and well-being. Our quiz is meant to help you decide whether your pet should be seen for a video consultation, sick exam, or emergency vet clinic visit.

Frequently Asked Questions

How long does a mobile pet vaccination visit last?

We typically bundle your pet’s vaccines with a Pet Wellness Visit, which usually lasts between 30-45 minutes.

Are your vaccines as high-quality as clinic ones?

Yes, we source all of our vaccines from highly reputable sources only, the same as if we were a brick and mortar veterinary clinic.

How do I know which vaccines my pet needs?

Your veterinarian will work with you to determine what core and non-core vaccines are necessary for your pet, and when they should be administered.

What if my pet reacts badly to a vaccine?

If you are concerned about your pet’s reaction to a vaccine, or they have had a bad reaction in the past, make sure to let your veterinarian know before your appointment. If your pet is showing side effects after receiving a vaccine, it’s always a good idea to check in with us.

What's your rescheduling policy?

We understand that scheduling conflicts arise, and if you are able to let us know more than 48 hours before a scheduled appointment, we can help you cancel or reschedule at no charge. If you need to reschedule or cancel your visit less than 48 before an appointment time, there will be a $75 fee added to your account.

Are vaccines given right after the wellness exam?

We typically administer any vaccinations that your pet needs during their annual or biannual Wellness Exam.

Is the pet vaccination an additional cost to the wellness exam?

Yes, the cost of your pet’s vaccinations is not included in your Wellness Exam fee. We typically bundle your pet’s vaccinations with their scheduled checkup, so that you only need to pay one travel fee.

Does pet insurance cover vaccination for pets?

While pet insurance does not generally cover preventative care like Wellness Exams and vaccinations, many Pet Wellness Plans do.

How often should my pet be revaccinated?

A typical vaccination schedule for puppies and kittens starts between 6 to 8 weeks of age and continues until they are approximately 16 weeks old. After reaching maturity, vaccines are boosted after 1 year, then booster vaccines can range from every 1-3 years depending on lifestyle.
