Serving Southern Oregon, Home Pet Vet provides professional and compassionate veterinary care for your dog, cat, or “pocket pet” in the comfort and convenience of your home. Our on-site services by Dr. Julie Tavares and her vet assistant include professional veterinary care in a state-of-the-art mobile veterinary exam room that is custom-built to expertly handle an extensive set of pet needs in a stress-free environment.
By choosing Home Pet Vet to come to your home, you can avoid the trauma and potential harmful environment of a traditional veterinary clinic. A pet house call also provides convenience when you have multiple pets, are busy, or have mobility issues, allowing you to avoid the time involved with travel and busy waiting rooms with other varieties of animals. Your pet house call is a personalized experience with Dr. Tavares’ full attention.
We come to your home or location throughout Southern Oregon and the Rogue Valley (including work locations) and provide complete pet diagnostics and treatment, as well as provide any pet products, vaccinations, and additional veterinary services you may need. We treat all breeds and types of dogs and cats, as well as birds, hamsters, gerbils, mice, rats, guinea pigs, rabbits, and other small household pets.
Home Pet Vet Advantages
Familiarity. Pets often experience fear and trauma when taken from the security of their home to a veterinary hospital. In addition, pets are typically “not themselves” in an unfamiliar or uncomfortable setting, making it difficult for veterinarians to evaluate pet behavior during examinations for lameness and behavioral counseling. Home Pet Vet makes it possible for your dog, cat, or small animal to be in their own environment where they are more comfortable and relaxed.
- Less stress on your pet(s)
- Your pet is examined and treated in familiar surroundings
- We can examine and treat your pet in your home, or in our mobile veterinary exam room
- Ideal for pets who dislike traditional hospital visits
Safety. By keeping your pet at home, your pet can avoid being exposed to stresses that may be present in a veterinary waiting room. Young and old pets are especially susceptible with weakened immune systems. You can also avoid encountering larger or more aggressive animals.
- Reduces exposure to other pets and illnesses
- Safe, secure setting with complete veterinary control
- Clean and sanitary mobile exam room
Convenience. We come to you on your schedule. There are no waiting rooms, driving time or travel stress for anxious pets to endure.
