Benefits of a House Call Practice
Benefits of a House Call Practice for Veterinarians
You became a veterinarian to help pets. Studies have shown that after the first year of ownership, over 50% of cats are never again taken to the vet for routine wellness exams or vaccinations. A leading cause of cats not being seen by a veterinarian is the difficulty many pet owners have in transporting their animal, especially their cat, to the vet's office. A house call practice eliminates this problem entirely by examining and treating the pet in their own home environment. This can be a very rewarding experience for the veterinarian, as they are often seeing pets that otherwise wouldn't be able to be seen in a traditional office setting due to problems with transporting the animal to a clinic, or difficulties examining a pet in a clinical setting.
In addition, working in a house call practice allows for an excellent quality of life for the veterinarian, as most cases our veterinarians see are for general wellness. After hours and emergency cases involving your patients can be referred to a local animal hospital for immediate treatment, with appropriate follow-up care provided by MVS Pet Care. Currently there are no “on call” hours for MVS Pet Care veterinarians, and few night and weekend hours.
Benefits of a House Call Practice for Pets
As stated above, some pets become very nervous when they have to go to a clinic, but they remain remarkably calm and relaxed when the vet comes to their home.
Additionally pets treated at home are not exposed to other pets in a waiting area at a clinic. This reduces the opportunity for exposure to other pet’s illnesses, as well as the likelihood of two pets having a dangerous interaction while waiting to be seen.
Even pets that are not anxious, or who love going to the clinic, can benefit from house calls. Because the doctor is at home with the pet, he or she can see and better understand the environment and will tailor their recommendations to each pet’s specific needs and circumstances. For example, a dog who lives next to a stream or pond may need a leptospirosis vaccination, but a dog in a high rise apartment building who never goes near a body of water may be able to skip this vaccine. Or the doctor may notice that an older, arthritic dog’s food bowls are on the floor and it might be easier for the pet to eat more comfortably if the bowls were raised up a bit.
When the veterinarian can see and relate to the pet’s experience in this way, they can often offer medical care and advice that combines both the clinical picture of the exam and diagnostic tests, with the bigger picture of the pet’s day-to-day life, resulting in the best possible care for the pet.
Benefits of a House Call Practice for Pet Parents
Beyond the obvious convenience of being at home instead of traveling to and waiting in a clinic, there are other intangible benefits for pet owners. The entire appointment is spent working one-on-one with a single doctor and possibly one technician or assistant. This prevents the pet parent from having to discuss their pet’s history and symptoms with a receptionist, then a technician, and finally the veterinarian. In addition, the pet owner gets the doctor’s full attention, and gets to be present for, the entire appointment. There is no back room to take your pet to for an injection or blood draw, which often causes undue stress for a pet. The veterinarian and pet parent spending the appointment working together to review the pet’s health and discuss the best plan for care.
In facing difficult end-of-life decisions for pets, pet parents can take comfort in knowing that they are in a private setting, and do not need to worry about working through an emotional process in a hospital setting near a waiting room full of other pets and their parents. It is a great comfort for both pet and parent to be in a warm and familiar environment during the pet’s final moments.
