Benefits of In-Home Pet Pain Management
City Pets’ veterinary houses call offer various benefits for both you and your pet in these circumstances. When a pet is in pain, it's most likely that it cannot walk well on its own and so transporting them to a veterinary hospital will be very unpleasant for them, beyond the unpleasantness of traveling in a carrier. Once at a hospital of course, additional movement is required, particularly if other animals are around, and being in pain in such situations – one can imagine – is just no fun for your dog or cat. House call eliminates the need for all that work and discomfort, allowing pets to get the treatment they need in the comfort of their own home.
More importantly, however, a City Pets veterinarian will be able to see your pet where they live, which includes understanding their bedding, movement areas, environmental challenges and the like. This kind of first-hand knowledge of your pet’s home is one of the attributes that makes City Pets ‘your pet’s personal doctor’.
