House Call Vet Appointment Overview

House Call Vet Appointment Overview

Kick up your paws and relax as Dr. Karie and her assistant travel to your home (serving Homer Glen and other neighboring southwest Chicago suburbs). You and your pet can skip the frustrating waiting room and stay calm in the comforts of your home with no travel anxiety. The entire appointment is typically 1 hour long, which gives Dr. Karie the opportunity to provide personalized treatment and care options, while observing your pet’s actual environment and normal behavior.

Upon arrival, the first thing we do is shower your dog/cat with love and treats. After becoming their new best friend, we can work with them in a relaxed setting where they remain calm and behave normally.

To provide your pet with the best care possible, we thoroughly review their medical history with you, gain a complete understanding of their previous health or any prior issues, and actively listen to any of your concerns. We also take the time to answer any and all of your initial questions.

Since an animal’s diet, weight and nutritional intake are the most controllable areas of their long term health, you will receive a complimentary nutrition consultation. Dr. Karie will also create an individualized diet plan for your pet by calculating proper portion sizing for food/treats and recommending food types after factoring in their age, lifestyle & health.

You will receive a complimentary behavior consultation as well. With your pet being stress free and in their normal habitat, Dr. Karie can observe their ordinary behavior and evaluate any environmental factors. She will then provide insight into their behavior, answer any questions and offer recommendations to improve their overall behavior & care.

By the time Dr. Karie starts the examination, your pet should be relaxed and comfortable without feeling added pressure or stress. We will have all of the necessary diagnostic equipment to perform a full exam, vaccinations & any additional services (if needed) wherever your pet is the most comfortable, whether in their bed, on the couch or on the living room floor.

Our mobile veterinary services in Homer Glen include everything from basic tests, like fecal & heartworm screening, to advanced diagnostic testing such as blood panels, urinalysis, ultrasound, among others for dogs, cats and other pocket pets.

After Dr. Karie completes her work, she also takes as much time as you need to answer all of your questions. We want every pet parent to be as aware, involved & educated as possible.

Before leaving, she will provide you with any necessary treatment and care recommendations for your dog or cat moving forward. You will also receive a VIP Pet Report giving a detailed health overview, along with educational materials regarding any issues that were uncovered – within 2 days.

After your VIP Vet Visit, we understand some pet parents might think of additional questions or concerns regarding their pet’s health or treatment plan, which is why you get access to communicate directly with Dr. Karie via phone call or text message. To experience our VIP difference, you can schedule a 1st Visit Special through our online booking platform in under 3 minutes!
