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.

Our Mobile Pet Vaccination Process

BetterVet’s stress-free mobile vaccines for dogs and cats help to ensure your pet’s health and safety.

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.

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.

The vet and technician showed up on time and prepared. They were efficient in carrying out the examination and vaccination. In summary they were professional and time efficient. They cared for my cat well.

BetterVet New Jersey
Fabulous service. Great with “tricky” animals. So caring and compassionate. We absolutely love "our BetterVet veterinarian". She feels like family! I still can’t get over how she and her assistant came over and managed to do full work ups and vaccines on my two very old dogs (one is SO scared of the vet typically) and two very spoiled cats without missing a beat. So kind and caring and compassionate. I wish I could give more stars. I can’t recommend her enough.

I can’t say enough about BetterVets and the awesome mobile veterinary services that they provide! From their easy online booking to the care they provide when tending to our fur babies to general pet healthcare tips, I highly recommend BetterVets and will be using them again when it comes time for my cat’s annual vaccinations this fall. Thanks again from “Archie” and I and we’ll see you soon!

"The BetterVet team" were absolutely amazing!!! Extremely compassionate and comforting for my skittish cat and dog (wellness check and all needed boarding vaccinations) while giving excellent advice and recommendations! Truly a wonderful experience and most highly recommended! :)

What more is there to say? They come to your house for the same price as a regular office visit (without scaring the hell out of your pet by bringing it to a place filled with sick and injured animals), they're very professional and friendly, and got my kitty fixed up and vaxxed up. Ten star review!

BetterVet Portland
We had a very positive experience with "the BetterVet team". This was a first visit, annual exam and a couple of vaccinations. They were on time, handled Hannah very kindly and it was a 5 star experience. We'll continue to use BetterVet.

BetterVet San Francisco
BetterVet was a lifesaver! I usually take my 3 cats into a clinic but decided to give this a try to save my anxious cats from the car ride over. "The BetterVet team" were friendly, hospitable, and administered their vaccines quick and easy. The best part is that my cats felt comfortable and went back into their hiding spots right after. I'd highly recommend using their service and will continue to do so in the future.

I used BetterVet for the first time due to the fact I was leaving town in 3 weeks and my pup needed vaccinations and my regular vet was available on the day I am suppose to leave (3 week wait)! I booked my in home appointment on a Monday and they were able to see me that following Wednesday. They weighed my pup and proved the vaccinations but was also very informative on maintain the health of my furry baby! Gave me lots of healthy recommendations for food and treats. I'm definitely using them again for our next wellness exam!

BetterVet Baltimore
Staff was very professional and caring. They promptly did a thorough exam and administered the required vaccinations. Very pleased with their services and will reach out to them if a need arises.

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.
