Does your canine buddy run when he hears the word ‘Vet?’ Does your kitty hightail it for her favorite hiding spot when she sees her carrier? Coming to see us is definitely in Fido and Fluffy’s best interests, but we do understand that most of our patients would rather stay home and take another nap. As it turns out … that’s actually an option now. Veterinary house calls are becoming more popular, and have some wonderful benefits. In this article, a local Denver, CO vet lists some reasons to consider having your pet’s doctor come to you.
We love dogs of all sizes, but we can understand how transporting a big dog can be difficult … especially if said pooch has health issues. For instance, dogs with arthritis often have a hard time jumping and climbing, which may make it hard for them to get in and out of the car.
Do you have more than one pet? If so, then you may find housecalls are a wonderful time saver. Rather than booking different appointments, in which case you’ll be spending more time traveling to the office and waiting, you can schedule all of your furry pal’s exams at one time.
If you don’t have a car, you may have trouble getting your four-legged friend to the vet, unless you live within walking distance. Even if you do drive, you may be more than happy to skip the trip!
Working From Home
One thing the coronavirus pandemic made to stay: the percentage of people who work from home at least part of the time has risen steadily over the past few years. If you’re among the people that telecommute, you may also find it beneficial to have housecalls.
Older pets can get very stiff and sore, which can make it uncomfortable for them to be held and transported. Housecalls allow your furry buddy to stick to their regularly-scheduled naps, which can go a long way towards keeping them comfortable.
When it’s time to say goodbye, house calls offer a dignified, comfortable option to do so. You’ll be able to ensure that your furry friend’s last moments are peaceful and relaxed, so they feel loved and safe until the end.
