House Call Appointments

All Pets Mobile Vets provide house calls from 9am to 6pm Monday to Friday and 9am to 1pm Saturdays most weeks of the year. I also make myself available for emergency or urgent home euthanasia on Saturday afternoons or Sundays whenever I can.

Routine and Preventative Care

Vaccinations – Annual vaccination boosters for dogs, cats and rabbits can easily be administered at home and the visit includes a full physical examination prior to administration of the vaccine. Other health issues can also be discussed at the time of the visit.

Heart worm Prevention – Preheat Annual Heartworm injection is recommended if your dog is not receiving monthly medication ( tablets or topical products) to prevent heart worm. This is generally timed to coincide with the annual vaccination booster so only one annual visit is required.

Intestinal Worming – This can be given with vaccination boosters and additional doses left with you so you can worm your pet at 3-6 monthly intervals until the next annual visit.

Infectious Disease Testing – Dogs can be tested for Heartworm and Parvovirus and cats can be tested for FeLV/FIV and both dogs and cats can have faecal examinations for intestinal parasites. Treatment for any infection discovered is not included in the examination/visit fee.

Genetic Disease Testing – samples can be taken and tested for various genetic disorders.

Blood Tests – Blood samples can be taken to monitor therapeutic drug levels for various medications and to screen senior pets for underlying health issues.

Additionally we can perform procedures such as Microchipping, Nail Clipping (with or without sedation as required), Sedation for grooming etc, Nutritional Counselling and Weight Management.

Beyond Preventative Care

Beyond the basics, there are many common problems in veterinary medicine that can be diagnosed and treated at home. Good examples of this include: itching and scratching; problems with the eyes, ears or skin; mild to moderate arthritis; minor wounds or lacerations.

During a house call, we can collect samples from your pet for outside laboratory testing. Common tests include Complete Blood Count & Blood Chemistry Panels, Heartworm Testing, Feline Viral Testing, Urinalysis, Fecal Examination, Bacterial and Fungal Cultures, and even Skin Biopsies.

If required, we can arrange personalised referrals to veterinary specialists in ophthalmology, dermatology, cardiology, radiology, orthopaedics, oncology, ultrasound, acupuncture, homeopathy and behavioural therapy to name just a few.

Our pharmacy is well-stocked, allowing us to fill most prescriptions on the spot. Some special medications and prescription diets will need to be ordered, often with same or next day delivery.
If we are advised before a home visit we can deliver premium quality foods of your choice from Eukanuba, Iams, Hills and Royal Canin etc on the day of your house call.

In some cases, we’ll need to refer your pet to a local veterinary hospital to get more intensive/specialised care.

Advanced Home Care

Sometimes our older and debilitated pets need frequent veterinary care: subcutaneous fluid administration, daily injections of insulin or other drugs, regular blood monitoring, etc.

Some pets may require palliative care/pain management for conditions such as Cancer and Advanced Osteoarthritis. In certain situations Quality of Life Determination and Recommendations may be required.

If you’d rather not transport your pet every time it needs treatment, home veterinary visits can be a very welcome relief! Let us know if we can help.

If your pet requires hospitalisation we can suggest a suitable full service Veterinary Practice in your area.
