Veterinary Care House Calls with Your Nashville, TN Veterinarian
Nashville Cat Clinic is offering a new service to our clients and their cats. “Well Pet” house calls are now available on Monday only. Appointments can be scheduled by contacting our office.
Why House Calls?
If transportation is a problem, a well pet house call is the perfect solution, but it’s not the only reason to consider the occasional house call. Cats are most comfortable in the familiar environment of their home. Veterinary care is an important part of keeping your pet healthy, but a trip to the veterinarian seldom makes your pet happy. Some cats go into hiding when the cat carrier is brought out, and are very good at not being found. Others spend the drive to and from the cat clinic crying, and are unhappy throughout the visit. When your cat simply needs a well cat exam, a house call can make life easier for both you and your cat.
House Call Services
Our house calls are limited to well pet visits. When your cat is ill or injured, we can’t anticipate what will be needed to diagnose and treat the problem, so a visit to Nashville Cat Clinic is necessary. For the well cat, we will be prepared with to do a general physical exam, give needed vaccines and other similar preventive measures, and take samples for laboratory testing, including a fecal sample for intestinal parasites, and a blood sample. Services can include trimming nails, listening to the heart and lungs, checking ears and eyes, and discussing any behavioral issues.
Preparing for Your House Call
Cats seem to know instinctively when something is up, so unless your cat welcomes visitors, keeping your pre-house call activity as normal as possible is important. If your cat is not curious and visitor friendly, we suggest you make sure you know where your pet is, then randomly close doors to other areas to prevent your cat from hiding. If you have any specific questions or concerns, or things you want done such as a nail trim, make a note of them before the visit so nothing is missed. When you make your house call appointment, don’t forget to inform the office if you need any items you regularly pick up at the cat clinic, such as prescription diet or vitamins, we can bring them to your scheduled house call.
