Some vets now offering house calls

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WIAT) – It can be difficult to coax animals out of the house to get into the car and take a trip to the vet’s office.

As such, some pet owners are now opting for veterinarian house calls.

Vets say the most common house calls are for regular check-ups and routine vaccinations.

They can provide just about any service except surgery and a few other services.

Because the vet comes to the home to administer treatment, it allows the pets to be more at ease, because it is used to its surroundings.

A house call costs pet owners an extra $100 more than a regular office visit.
