What do we offer from Vet@Home
Think of us as the primary care doctor for your pets. We can help when they’re healthy and when they’re not. Annual exams for healthy pets? Yes, we do that. Vaccinations? You bet. Your dog hasn’t been feeling well? Give us a call. Or, you may be at the point where it’s time to say goodbye to a beloved pet and you want to do it at home, in a way that respects the warm and wonderful life they’ve shared with you, and lets you give them a compassionate ending in the peace and comfort of their familiar surroundings. We can help.
In fact, we can provide most of the same services that you would find at a traditional veterinary clinic, including:
- Annual check-ups
- New pet exams
- Sick or injured pet visits
- Bloodwork and other diagnostic tests
- Prescription medication
- Management of chronic medical conditions
- Health certificates for travel
- Flea and tick prevention
- Humane, compassionate euthanasia
What we can’t offer
Of course, there are some things we can’t do at home. Procedures that require anesthesia (such as spaying and neutering, dental cleaning, and other larger surgeries) should only be done in a veterinary clinic with all the necessary equipment. We work together with a small animal veterinary clinic where we can do all kind of surgeries and other diagnostics like X-rays. But if you already have another veterinary clinic of your choice that’s not a problem either. We will do our best to work together with them in order to get the best treatment or your pet.
If you should ever need the services of a hospital, we’ll be happy to coordinate the referral and work with you and the hospital to make it as smooth a process as possible, and we can continue with house calls once the hospitalization is done.
Dr. Roncal is unable to be on call 24 hours a day. With just one doctor, it would be impossible to be on call all day and all night, 7 days a week. If something happens to your pet outside of our working hours it’s best to call an emergency veterinarian who can help you out of hours.
