Out-Of-Hours general consultations in your own home: stress-free, easy and gentle for your ailing or sick pet with our visiting emergency vet. (Starting at £275 depending on time of call-out/distance travelled)
A home consultation - at night, at the weekend or over the Bank Holidays - with our fully qualified and caring duty vet always allows for a gentle but full clinical examination if need be. This assessment and decision process is conducted in the peace, quiet and comfort of your own home, without adding to your worries by having to move or transport your pet to a emergency clinic when he or she is in pain and distress - and you, perhaps, are unsure of what's the right thing to do for your pet.
What we offer is professional help so you can decide the best options for your pet that suddenly takes a turn for the worse outside normal working hours and when your usual vet is not available. It doesn't matter whether it's a known or unknown illness, a condition related to age, or just a sudden decline - our experienced and fully qualified duty mobile emergency vet will advise you and give you all the options based on the symptoms your pet is displaying, so you can decide the best way forward. This could mean treatment - or no treatment except pain-relief given at home to buy time - or perhaps afterwards helping you gently load your poorly pet into your car for you to take him or her to the nearest emergency clinic.
Our response time is usually ½ - 2 hours depending on your area, how busy we are and if our own VIP patients or subscribing vet practices need us too.
At the consultation we leave plenty of time for a complete history of your pet's problems and illnesses while we together decide between the range of treatment options available for the problem (either at home or at a clinic) as suggested by our experienced vet after the examination. Should you decide to start with home medical treatment, we always carry a wide range of injectable medicines. There is also the option of not having any treatment at all unless your pet is suffering and in pain. And if a peaceful home goodbye seems to be on the cards, we can offer the solution of gentle euthanasia too.
Whatever your decision, we will always respect your wishes and together we find the solution you feel the most comfortable with.
If you decide to have urgent emergency clinic treatment, further in-depth investigations or surgery, we will refer and assist you in getting your pet to the nearest emergency hospital.
should be noted that our home vet service is not suited to major surgical or
super-urgent emergencies as these need to be treated at a full-service hospital
immediately, unless the alternative of a gentle home euthanasia is being considered.
At Vets2Home, we believe in going that extra mile to find the very best solution to meet your special pet's needs - and yours - starting calmly at home.
Home is a place where Louie & Pete can truly relax, and the best place to examine them
