Image00036Here at Takoma Park Animal Clinic, we are proud to offer house calls for our patients and their owners.

Our entire staff knows and understands why some people don’t want to bring their pets to our office. A car ride with an anxious pet can be awful. Many people also hate the stress of waiting with pets who are already wound up by the car ride. Many don’t like to bring all of their pets in at once but also don’t like to make multiple trips to our office.

Animals can get really wound up at an office. There are a lot of new smells. There are other pets to try to get close to. Their adrenaline is usually high so they don’t act like their normal and happy selves. Some get very aggressive during their examinations. Many don’t act sick (or act worse) due to the adrenaline.

For this reason, we are very happy to be able to schedule house calls. Many owners take advantage of our house calls and get all of their pets examined and vaccinated at once. Aggressive animals may be more comfortable at home. If you can’t get your pets in the car, no problem. If you think your pets will act better at home, we will come to you!

If you have any questions about house calls or you would like to schedule one, feel free to contact us today at (301) 270-4700.
