What Our Clients Say

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 Vancouver
BetterVet did a great job at seeing my puppy , Riddle, and giving him new medication/vaccines he needed. It was very nice to not have to leave the house as he was a new puppy and it was also very convenient to be able to schedule appointments so quickly.
Ruth Paine
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.
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. Dr. Johnson 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 Austin
Dr. Fraser and her team took excellent care of my dog Gigi. The at-home visit kept my dog calm and anxiety-free. Making an appointment was easy, the help chat answered all my questions about procedures and costs before the booking, and the providers arrived on time and prepared. They put my dog at ease, administered her vaccines like pros, and took a blood sample from my dog's neck so quickly that my dog didn't even flinch! I will be seeing these fine folks again.

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.
Dave & Dorothy Graham
BetterVet Miami
Best possible experience! Our older cat, Joel, doesn't travel well and hadn't seen a vet in a long time. We felt that the best way to get his vaccinations up to date would be using a mobile vet service. Joel was terrified but everything happened so quickly and professionally that he barely noticed. A quick pre-treatment of Benedryl to relax him, the rest of exam went very smoothly. We will definitely use this service again and recommend it to our friends!
BetterVet South Jersey
They took care of Storm great, made him feel safe and comfortable while getting vaccinations!!! Will use them again.
BetterVet Chicago
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!
Holly Oelkers
BetterVet South Jersey
Fabulous service. Great with “tricky” animals. So caring and compassionate. We absolutely love Dr. Cimino. 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.
Sarina Healey
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. Dr. Jamie and her assistant Nicole 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.
