- What if my pet is very aggressive? If your pet is friendly to others at home, and just gets aggressive at the vet, a house call may be the perfect solution. If our veterinarian cannot safely handle your pet, they will recommend either a second housecall (with prior calming medication having been given) or an in-office exam with sedation.
- Will I still be charged if my pet will not safely allow an exam? Yes, you will be charged the trip fee and a consultation fee. Our veterinarian will spend time consulting with you regarding all concerns you have, review past experiences and history, and make recommendations and a treatment plan as to how to proceed. We will always strive to be fair and provide you and your pet with the best possible experience and value. Any information you can provide us ahead of time in regards to your pets temperament and past experiences is helpful.
