Benefits Of Veterinary House Calls
September 1, 2021

House calls are becoming quite popular for pets, and with good reason. There are some wonderful benefits to having your vet come to you! A Kerrville, TX vet lists some of the key ones below.

Keep Senior Pets Comfy

As your pet grows older, they will benefit from more frequent doctor’s appointments. However, older pets often get quite stiff and sore. This can make it difficult to transport them comfortably. House calls eliminate this issue. Fido and Fluffy can just relax in their beds, with only minimal interruption of their napping schedule.

Big Dogs

We love big mutts and we cannot lie! However, getting them from Point A to Point B can be challenging … especially if they aren’t feeling well. There’s a reason house calls are so popular among people with large breeds!

Transportation/Mobility Issues

Going to the vet is usually pretty easy if you have your own vehicle. However, not everyone has transportation. If you do not have a car and/or cannot drive, housecalls can be a great option for you.

Multiple Pets

If you have more than one pet, house calls may be a no-brainer. You’ll be able to schedule all of your furry pals’ appointments at once. That way, you won’t have to make separate appointments or deal with having to get all of your animal companions in the car at once. What’s not to love?


Do you work from home? Are you juggling a hectic schedule? House calls are often quite easy on your appointment calendar. You won’t have to spend time driving to the clinic and back, and you won’t have to wait. This helps you make the most of your time.


Another reason house calls are great? They allow vets to see their patients in their own domains. This can be great for gathering insight. It may also allow your vet to observe or notice things they wouldn’t see at the clinic.


Sooner or later, we all have to say goodbye to our furry companions. House calls can help keep your furry friend calm and comfortable in their own homes. When the time comes, you may find that letting your pet stay home allows them to make this transition in peace and dignity.
