Pet Wellness Exams are a key component of your pet’s preventative care and long-term health. During an at-home wellness exam, your veterinarian will complete a head-to-tail exam and discuss your pet’s lifestyle, nutrition, and behavior.
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.
Dr. Allie and Vet-tech Brianna, provided an amazing service for my senior fur baby. I am very appreciative of their professionalism, care, convenience, and knowledge. The information regarding the overall wellness/ care and the appropriate steps to take moving forward to ensure the comfortability for my senior little one was detailed and very reassuring. Very grateful for their support and service. Should you need the convenience of at home veterinary care, please, do not hesitate to contact, Better Vet. Thank you.
Excellent service, extremely nice and helpful.
Dr. Coughlin has a gift for working with animals. Our cat, Tiny, has some fear aggression, and Dr. Coughlin was able to give Tiny shots and even weigh her in a calm and caring manner. She also gave excellent care and advice for our older cat, Mr. Whiskers, who had an abscess in his ear. I feel that both of our cats response to being treated in our home exceeded my expectations. I’m so grateful that we found BetterVet.
Wonderful team! Dr. Tisha Posey and team were great. I have a senior cat and they were comforting and it made everything go smoothly for his wellness checkup and vaccines. Really glad to have found BetterVet!
Needed a vet to come to my home. Cat detests car rides. Dr. and tech were great! Drew blood for bloodwork and administered vaccines, weighed the cat, and started us on a diet. Couldn't be happier.
Thank you so much for the consultation. I look forward to our in person appointment to figure out what is wrong with my pup.
Another wonderful experience! I wouldn't trust my Sasha's health care to anyone else. Thanks for taking such good care of her.

Team who came to my house was fabulous, and my cat didn’t have to go through a traumatizing car ride. Process was so simple- we got a checkup and some vaccinations. They also do lab work (stool, blood) if you need it. Would recommend.
Expensive but worth the convenience and the comfort for my cats to get care jn their safe space. The docs and nurses are always so nice and thorough and don't rush, spending as much time as is needed.
I have two large shepherds that are difficult to manage. Bettervet's home visits are so convenient. Dr. Julia and Katie are caring, professional and courteous. I highly recommend them. My pets (dogs and cats) and I are so grateful and we love them!
