Home Vet or Clinic?
When is each one better? In most cases it is up to you and it depends on what suits you best but in others there are reasons to choose one or the other:
The veterinary clinic or hospital is the only option in the following cases: Surgeries, X-rays, emergencies and hospitalizations. In general, these are all cases that require sterile rooms or large appliances. Contact us if you have any questions.
On the other hand, the home veterinarian is the best solution for:
- Cats: Transfers and unfamiliar places like clinics can put a lot of stress on them.
- Older or sore pets: Transfers cause them a lot of fatigue, discomfort and pain.
- Pet owners with mobility difficulties: Age, home location, temporary injuries, lack of time … There are many reasons why going to the clinic creates difficulties for some owners and home visits help so that the pet is not neglected
- Owners with more than one pet: Moving more than one pet at a time is difficult and awkward. The home vet solves this problem at a very competitive price by being able to take advantage of the trip to visit all the pets.
