FAQ

why choose a mobile vet?

A mobile vet is the perfect option for anyone wanting the convenience of having their dogs and cats examined and treated at home. Those who work from home, have busy family lives, have difficulty transporting their pet, who have multiple pets, or who want to avoid the traffic and waiting room, find mobile veterinarians a great fit for their family. Most people find housecall vet visits to be more personalized and less stressful than a traditional vet appointment.

how long will my appointment last?

The length of the appointment will depend on the nature of the visit. On average, you can expect your appointment to last approximately 45-60 minutes. During your appointment Dr Jenna will be able to obtain a detailed history, observe your pet in the home environment, complete a thorough physical exam, perform any necessary diagnostics and treatments, and address any concerns that you may have.

what is the cost of the visit?

A housecall fee will apply to each visit and will depend on travel distance. Otherwise, the costs for exams, diagnostics, and treatments are very similar to those at a brick-and-mortar veterinary practice. Please contact us with any questions regarding pricing.

will you travel to my home outside of Austin?

We are generally able to travel within a radius of 35 miles around our home base in north central Austin, but may be able to travel farther in certain situations. To discuss scheduling a visit, reach out!

what if my pet needs x-rays or surgery?

Our housecall services do not include x-rays or anesthetic procedures due to safety concerns for both people and pets. In the hopefully rare event that your pet requires these types of diagnostics or treatments, we maintain close relationships with local clinics who can provide these services. Our high standard for communication aims to ensure a seamless, stress-free transition. Any necessary follow-up care can often be done as housecall visits.
