There are patients who become excessively anxious with travel or at the sights and sounds of being around other animals. Some clients do not have the ability to get their pet into a vehicle for a veterinary visit. If this describes your pet, Dr. Nickel provides a mobile house call service for routine examinations and vaccines.
Dr. Nickel and his assistant will come to your home and perform:
- Anal gland expression
- Blood work, any that may be required
- Nutritional counseling
- Treat minor ailments such as skin issues, ear problems
Before Dr. Nickel arrives please have any previous vet care paperwork faxed to his hospital for review. Please place a collar and leash on your dog, and take fearful cats into containment, such as a bathroom or even into a carrier, in case they are reluctant to have a medical visit. House calls are a premium service and therefore cost more than a hospital visit.
