How do you feel about going to the dentist? If you are like most people, you probably dread it. Heart racing, palms sweaty, body shaking with nerves. Well, that’s how most dogs and cats feel, amplified by at least ten, when they are taken to the veterinarian’s office. What makes it worse is that they don’t understand what’s going on. We can’t explain that it’s all for the good of their health. Some pets show stress more than others, but even pets that seem ok are probably experiencing some fear. They endure a car ride, a loud, noisy waiting room with strange sounds and smells, a cold table, pokes and prods. By the time they have their temperature taken or a vaccination given, their stress level is through the roof. Generally, healthy pets can tolerate this stress without much adverse effect. They recover within a few hours or days. On the other hand, the stress can really take a toll on a pet that is not feeling well to begin with.

So why not eliminate all this stress? In- home veterinary care is a very different experience. Its convenient, saves you time, but most importantlyis much more peaceful for your dog or cat. In addition, it allows for better assessment of their health because they are calm, not tense and on adrenaline overload. Evaluating pets in their environment can often lead to more accurate diagnosis of their ailments.

Sure, there are some things that cannot be done at home, such as surgeries, xrays and ultrasounds. These things are better suited to be done in the hospital. But using in-home veterinary care limits the number of times you may have to subject your pet that stressful situation.
