Pets and people are more relaxed at home without the crates or leashes, rides in the car, waiting room experiences or time spent watching the time go by. There are instead, opportunities gained, including learning greater detail about your pet's lifestyle, interactions with other pets & people, activity level or limitations, diet, and the list goes on...
House Calls are much more than convenient. 100% of your time is spent with the vet, who devotes more time to you and your pet(s).
