|Veterinary House Calls
Whether your pet dreads the trip to a clinic (or you dread taking them!) or it is simply more convenient for you, the cornerstone of ‘Home Health for Pets’ is Small Animal Veterinary House Calls. The only cost difference from taking your pet to a veterinarian is the ‘Call Fee’, which is based on location. Other services (exams, vaccines, labwork, etc) are similarly priced to the clinics in the area. Most aspects of veterinary care can be accomplished in your home. Surgery, x-rays and emergency/critical care are generally the only services inappropriate for a house call.
From administering subcutaneous fluids to your cat with kidney failure or insulin injections for your diabetic friend to routine dental care and beyond, many routine services are available in the comfort of your own home.
When we welcome a pet into our family, we are also committing to making decisions in his or her best interest for the rest of their lives. One of the most important of these is choosing euthanasia when the time comes. Although it is always difficult, it is the last kind choice you can make for them and many pet owners find it less stressful to know this can be accomplished at home where your pet is most comfortable.
There are cremation services in Jackson available if desired.

Whether your pet needs to be taken across town or across the country, we will arrange safe, comfortable transportation service.
When traveling by car within the ‘lower 48’, a health certificate may be indicated for your pet. If traveling by air it would be required. And travel outside of the US, as well as to Hawaii can be complicated.
If you are planning a trip to another country with your pet, please contact the Consulate for that country to obtain the paperwork describing their requirements. Keep in mind that it can take several months to complete the labwork, vaccines and other steps necessary. And in extreme cases if your pet arrives in a few countries without proper paperwork that country will seize your animal and in the most extreme cases will euthanize him or her.
In addition to staying in their own preferred environment, your pet avoids the stress of a kennel and the increased risk of exposure to contagious diseases when someone cares for them at their own home.
