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.

      My super senior (14 yo) Weimaraner was seen by Dr. Schmitt as a second opinion for neck and face swelling that was not resolving. The original vet we had seen said there was not much to do for her and that she was at her end. Dr. Schmitt took time to check her and explained the options. My Weimaraner continued to get worse and Dr. Schmitt did not give up. Finally, by working together, we got the swelling down. Thank you to the caring staff and Dr. Schmitt for giving me more time with my sweet girl.

      Phenomenal, compassionate, goes the extra mile and truly gets our love for our animal family members. Her assistance with the difficult decision to end our 7 month old kitten Moon's terminal pain February 9th, 2017 will forever be remembered. Dignity, love and respect by not only Dr. Tammy, but her staff as well, is unmeasurable. They are the epitome of what all animal medical care givers should aspire to be. Again, thank you truly. <3 Sincerely, Lorrie Harris, Aden and Carolyn Giannopoulos, her many canine siblings and cousins, otherwise known as Moon's family. *Side note, Dr. Tammy, we are saddened to learn last night when we returned home from Moon's passing, that you yourself lost your personal cat yesterday. He and Moon are playing, I'm sure of it.
