Dr Allen started the House Call practice just over a year ago. The response has been favorable and people are truly grateful for the level of service Dr Allen is able to provide for their pets, in their own homes! Some folks are very happy to have Dr Allen continue to care for their pets, and new pets too! Others are making vet visits easier with their busy schedules or are new to the area and were pleased with House Call Vets previously. Some folks are referred for a House Call by other veterinarians. For too many people it can be a chore, a challenge, or simply not an option due to difficulties or disabilities to get their pets to a vet. Veterinary House Calls (formerly farm calls) are making a come back, a growing trend across the country. Those who have heard the good news and made the call have been pleased. Read her reviews in Petsimonials.
While some pets truly enjoy going to the vet, others would disagree. It's simple. Pets prefer a House Call Vet!! 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). Dr Allen is able to meet the needs of most healthy, sick and injured pets as well as those who's time has nearly come. Urgent needs can often be met same day. Dr Allen works closely with many local veterinary hospitals, referring young patients for spaying and neutering, and also accepts cases referred by them for House Calls. Though most pets do not require additional surgery later in life, there may be a time an advanced procedure, dentistry or critical care is needed. Dr Allen refers these patients to local or regional hospitals that best meet the needs of individuals and remains in close contact with pet owners and doctors.
