Vet Home Visit Service
We offer home visits in normal opening hours usually between the hours of 11am and 3pm but would require advanced notice to enable our team to leave the veterinary centre with cover, as our vet will usually bring one of our nurses to assist in examination and treatment of your pet.
It can be more advantageous and result in faster and more efficient treatment if the patient is brought into the veterinary centre where we have full surgical and examination facilities at hand. Some animals can also be more difficult for us to handle at home because they may be trying to protect you.
Some patients seen at home will require hospitalisation for further treatment and diagnostic testing, which we are unable to offer whilst on home visits. We advise that you have a suitable transport solution available at all times for your pet, as the responsibility for transporting an animal to the practice premises remains with the owner at all times.
We do understand however, that under certain circumstances home visits are appropriate and we will endeavour to provide this service when required, such as visits for end of life euthanasia of your pet in familiar surroundings, where they may be more relaxed and comfy.
A home visit will incur additional costs depending on distance from the veterinary centre and duration of the visit. An estimated cost is available on request once visit particulars are finalised.
