When You Need At-Home Pet Care
- The first year of life: Most pet healthcare is needed during the first few months of your pet’s life. House call vet care takes the inconvenience out of new pet ownership.
- When your pet is anxious: Anxious pets who are afraid of the loud noises or sudden movements are safest when cared for during a veterinary house call.
- When your pet is experiencing an illness or sudden medical issue: It may be uncomfortable for your pet to travel when they are feeling unwell. Examinations are much more comfortable for unwell pets in the home.
- Pet hospice care and end of life care: As your pet ages or suffers from a terminal disease, traveling to and from the vet becomes more frequent and more difficult for them, and you’ll likely want to find a house call vet near you.

What People Say About MVS Pet Care House Calls
Take a look at what our happy customers have to say about our mobile vet services.
“The Doctor was very helpful and patient because I normally physically don’t handle my pet. She initially hid from myself and the doctor. Dr.MacFadgen worked with me, didn’t give up and eventually my cat got the care she needed. I am grateful for the doctor’s patience in that regard, for I knew that was the most important of all the help me and my cat needed. And thanks.”
- Ms Farmer
“My call to MVS to schedule Bella’s appointment was seamless. Vincent was very nice, professional, and informative. The vet was very friendly, professional, and well informed. We sat on the couch while he asked and answered many questions. Bella came over to him and was examined without her even knowing it. She did not have to endure the stress of a cat carrier, drive to the vet or possible run in with other animals.”

That means exams in your living room, vaccines in your pet's favorite chair or dog bed, and any other primary care procedures needed anywhere inside your home. We also do "backyard" visits where we can sit on your front porch, in your yard, or in your garage to perform your pet's visit. We will arrive within a 4 hour block, and you will receive your "block" at the time of scheduling. We will also text or call you 1 hour before arriving in an effort to give you and your pet some time to prepare. Upon arrival, we will bring our gear, supplies, and medications into your home to begin your appointment. We will listen to your concerns, examine your pet, and then perform any services such as vaccines, ear cleanings, blood draws for labs, and more. We will also observe your pet's behavior and any symptoms. After that, we are able to prescribe meds and a care plan for your pet. We can also schedule follow up visits on the spot for you! We'll print a receipt and medical notes at the visit, and answer any final questions you might have.

Most animals cooperate well during the visit, but some do not. In a house call setting, without the resources of a fully staffed hospital, there may be some pets who cannot be handled safely for all procedures. The doctor may ask you to provide a towel he or she can use to help keep your pet still and calm during some procedures. The doctor may also ask you to help hold your pet still for some procedures, but you should tell the doctor if you have any reason to think your pet might try to scratch or bite in this situation. You are never required to hold your animal, and you should not do so if your animal poses a risk of injury.
We are a companion pet veterinary house call service. Cats and dogs are our specialty.
It is unethical, and in most states, unlawful, for a veterinarian to write a prescription or dispense a prescription drug outside a Veterinarian-Client-Patient Relationship (VCPR). For more information about the VCPR, including a technical definition, see the AVMA's Principles of Veterinary Medical Ethics. For an overview, check out these FAQs about the VCPR.
Prepare for your visit by:
- Providing us with previous veterinary records prior to your visit. Ask your previous vet to email the records to email@example.com or if you have them, please email them to us.
- Providing us with any information about your pet's medical history and behavior.
- Ensuring that you have provided our office staff with the correct address, gate code, and any other information that can help our team navigate to your home.
- Ensuring you understand our blocked scheduling process.
- Letting us know if you have any special requests or need any special accommodations (outdoor visit, skittish cat, etc.).
Veterinarians recommend regular wellness exams for the same reason your physician and dentist recommend them – if you can detect a problem in its early stages, it's more likely to be treated and resolved with less expense, less difficulty, and better success.
As the saying goes, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. Vaccinations, heartworm prevention, and routine deworming are important components of wellness care and can prevent diseases that are not only life-threatening, but very expensive to treat.
Your veterinarian can recommend a wellness program based on your pet's breed (some breeds are predisposed to certain health problems), age, lifestyle, and overall health.
