House Call Service
House Call Services Offered by our Veterinarians in Streamwood
For some animals and their owners, a trip to the veterinarian can be a difficult or stressful experience. For some it may pose a significant inconvenience. Because of this, Sutton Road Animal Hospital in Streamwood, IL, offers veterinary house calls for your convenience and the comfort of your pet.
Why Choose a Veterinarian That Does House Calls?
There are many ways that our patients benefit from a vet house call. Some pets have conditions that cause them pain, and moving from their home to the veterinarian's office can be difficult. Older pets can become less mobile as well. Some pets may have significant anxiety about being in the veterinarian’s office. This can make it difficult to handle the pet in the office, and they may exhibit changes in vital signs that can make diagnosing and treating illness more difficult. And in some cases the pet owner themselves may have a health condition or limited mobility that prevents them from being able to bring their pets to the veterinary hospital.
In-home veterinary services are ideal for wellness care, some diagnostic services and medical cases, people with multiple pets, and for end-of-life care. When end-of life decisions are made, in-home euthanasia allows you and your faithful companion to be together in the comfort and privacy of your own home.
Planning a Visit with a House Call Vet
If you would like to take advantage of Sutton Road Animal Hospital’s house call services, please remember that appointment times are limited. This means you should call us to schedule an appointment as soon as you know that you would like in-home veterinary care.
Also, please understand that we cannot provide veterinary house call services for medical emergencies. Emergency services are best handled in the hospital where support staff and equipment are readily available.
Building a Relationship with Your Vet
If your pet is nervous about going to the vet, in many cases it can be helpful to have a well-pet visit at home in order to give your pet a chance to get to know the veterinarian. In the event your pet needs to come into the animal hospital, they will already know the veterinarian and it may make the experience less stressful.
