House Calls

 

Can’t make it to the clinic with your sick or nervous pet? Our house call service may be just the solution you need!

There are many situations in which bringing your animal companion to the vet simply isn’t possible. Perhaps your pet is too sick to make the trip. Or, maybe your companion experiences such intense vet-visit anxiety that bringing him or her in is just too stressful for you both. Perhaps you have so many pets that scheduling and managing multiple appointments is too much to handle. Or, maybe it’s just that you’re simply too busy to find the time.

Whatever the reason, at Animal Hospital of McHenry, we believe your companion deserves the same quality care as all of our other patients. That’s why we offer house calls as part of our comprehensive animal health care services.

Our clients and their four-legged family members benefit from house call services in a variety of ways. Pet owners can enjoy the convenience and time savings of not having to transport their companions from their homes to the veterinary clinic. Pets enjoy the benefit of receiving high quality, one on one veterinary care in a setting where they feel most at ease. Multi-pet homes also benefit because it eliminates the need to transport several animals, either separately or at the same time. With a house call, all of the animals within the home can be seen in one convenient appointment.

House calls are available for annual visits, including physical exams and vaccinations, as well as sick calls and more. Additionally, diagnostic testing, such as blood work or urinalysis, can be gathered during the appointment and brought back to our in-house laboratory for further analysis.

At Animal Hospital of McHenry, we believe you shouldn’t have to sacrifice quality veterinary care when a trip to the clinic isn’t possible. Let us bring our services to you and help keep all your furry friends happy and healthy. Call us today to discuss whether house calls would be a good option for you.

      We LOVE this place! And are so glad we decided to switch and come here ! My puppy, Ted, can be a handful! Dr. Schmitt and the staff are so patient with him. From the minute we walk in he is greeted with smile and a treat! Even when he is being a little anxious and barking away! We had a couple issues with our Ted and Dr. Schmitt has been great with any questions or concerns we have. We would not take him anywhere else!

      Thank you for not declawing cats! Any veterinarian who does not perform barbaric outdated unnecessary p3 toe amputations on cats is tops in my book. I take my cats and dogs to a veterinarian who does not declaw cats, even if I have to travel an extra 20 minutes, it is worth it, they don't cry and whine in the car anymore like they used to when we used our ex-vet. Animals are sentient beings, not property for humans to mutilate. No wonder they used to cry on the way to our ex-vet, they were wondering if any of their body parts were going to get amputated.
