mobile vet benefits.

Shiloh Veterinary Care is proud to be able to bring high-quality, full-service veterinary care right to the doorsteps of our pet patients. Mobile vet care benefits include convenience for the pet owner, but it also can help to reduce pet stress at the vet. Learn why we think that mobile vet care is an important model for veterinary medicine.

How Mobile Vet Care Works

For those unfamiliar with having a mobile veterinarian, it can seem a little unbelievable that your pet can get good care without going into a veterinary clinic or hospital. It’s true, though!

When you schedule an appointment with us, our mobile unit comes directly to you and your pet. We are stocked up with all the equipment, supplies, and wonderful staff that you are used to getting at a stationary clinic, just on wheels!

Our mobile veterinary unit allows us to be able to:

  • Perform thorough examinations of dogs, cats, and exotic pets
  • Obtain samples for diagnostic testing
  • Conduct traditional and dental radiographs (X-rays)
  • Obtain CT scans
  • Perform many surgeries
  • Do dental procedures
  • Recommend and prescribe medications
  • Provide end-of-life services

Of course, there are times when it is hard to know when to use a mobile vet versus a brick and mortar hospital. In many emergency-type situations, it may be best to contact a local emergency hospital to receive the most prompt care. 

Mobile Vet Care Benefits

There are so many benefits to mobile vet care! Consider that:

  • It is often more convenient to have us come to you versus trying to bring your pet in
  • Some pets, especially exotic species, do not do well in the car
  • It may be easier to have multiple pets cared for in a home-based setting
  • Home care may be a more comfortable option for you and your pet as they near end of life
  • Pet owners who do not have access to transportation have increased access to care
  • Animals have less exposure to other potentially ill animals
  • Pets are often less stressed at home

Mobile care can decrease stress at the vet in multiple ways. Most pets tend to feel more comfortable in a familiar environment. They also are dealing with less strange smells, noises, and people than they would in a veterinary clinic. There is also generally no to minimal wait time since we are there just for you. 

Mobile vet care has multiple benefits. We love that we can share these with you and your pets. Please let us know if you have questions about how our services can help your pets.
