Welcome to our home visit service which allows owners to have their pets seen in the comfort of their own home whether they are cats, dogs or rabbits. House calls can help to reduce the stress for pets who hate the car or the dreaded cat carrier and are sometimes more convenient for pet owners too.
It is often the case that a visit to the clinic is more appropriate where we have for example much more equipment and facilities than can be brought to the house. However there are many circumstances in which we find a house call to be appropriate such as:
- Vaccinations and boosters
- Some pets with reduced mobility
- Clients who find it difficult to visit a veterinary clinic for health or transportation reasons
- Euthanasia of pets
- Non urgent illnesses
We request advance booking for home visits as house calls are not always available – we must prioritise the care and safety of our inpatients and therefore we cannot guarantee an urgent or same day service (we will try where we can however to accomodate). Our out of hours emergency service is run by Vets ER who for logistical reasons are unlikely to be in a position to leave their premises for home visits.
It costs us more to provide services outwith the practice so we must charge more for this however we try to keep prices very competitive and most of our clients to date have been surprised that we don’t charge more. We will only charge one house call no matter how many animals we see at the address that visit! We currently charge £30+VAT per house call (in addition to our normal ‘in clinic’ fees).
