Project Description

Consultation

Veterinary consults in your own home are a new concept to most who are used to the stress of going to the traditional vet. But as you can see from our services we can offer most of the same treatments as the clinic.

When pet’s get stressed at the vets it can mask some of their clinical signs which can mean some illness or injuries being missed. I’m sure you’ve heard of people saying their dog stopped limping the minute it walked into the vets! Regularly cat’s who are stressed will have falsely high heart rates and temperatures making it very difficult to diagnoses what is actually going on.

At home there is no stress from travel and being at home means most are more relaxed too. Dr Katie will take her time getting to know you and your pet and take a thorough history. There will be a thorough clinical exam but she always aims for pets not to notice that bit too much! Dr Katie will explain her findings and diagnosis and then discuss treatment options for your pet.

Medication can be purchase in the consult or via prescription and all cost will be discussed throughout the consult. Insurance companies cover for the cost of the consult the same as they would in practice as there is no surcharge for being seen at home. Consult costs will be applied to every visit but additional charges may be applied for medicines or some procedures. Depending where you live (zone one, zone two, or out of area) the consult is charged accordingly.

You will always see Dr Katie at home so over the time of seeing you and your pet she will get to know you both and all of your pet’s history.

Our consults are 30-40 minutes long so there is plenty of time for your pet to feel at ease. You can ask any questions you may have and don’t have to feel rushed. Traditional clinics often only schedule 10 minutes appointments which means vets are often rushed trying to get through a busy waiting room. Our approach is much more relaxed.

Dr Katie can help if your pet shows signs of a new or sudden onset condition such as an ear or eye infection, vomiting and diarrhoea or lameness. Or she can help to monitor and tailor treatment for ongoing health issues such as hyper or hypothyroidism, diabetes and arthritis.

You will be given a consult time and Dr Katie strives to be there at that time, but with traffic could arrive up to thirty minutes after this.

Call to Book

Emergency Call

“I’ve used Katie several times for my anxious rescue dog. Previous vet visits have always been really stressful for him this service makes things so much easier for him. He is very nervous around strangers but Katie knows how to put him at ease. The longer appointment times really help and mean any treatment can be done at his pace. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Positive Pet Mobile Vet to anyone.”

Frequently Asked Questions

Please see our frequently asked questions  below. If you have any other questions or queries please don’t hesitate to contact us.

Vet care in your own home takes away the stress of travel, an unfamiliar place and other animals for your pet. Many dogs, cats, rabbits and other animals are extremely stressed in the veterinary environment. This can make examination and treatment very difficult and cause further problems down the line with repeated negative experiences.

These visits are also often stressful for people, can be inconvenient times and difficult to get to if you don’t have access to transport. Instead at home you don’t have to worry about time wasted travelling or waiting in the waiting room. You can get on with your life at home and Dr Katie will arrive and start the consult straight away.

Our consults are usually 30-45 minutes long. This allows lots of time for getting to know you and your pet, a low stress exam and plenty of time for consults!

In the clinic you will often be allocated only a 10 minute appointment which is a rush to fit in history taking, clinical exam, treatment, questions and history writing! You don’t need to feel that rush with Positive Pet Mobile Vet and Dr Katie is always more than happy to answer any questions you may have.

Dr Katie is based in Whiston, Staffordshire Moorlands and works around a 25 minute radius from there.
Covering Cheadle, Leek, Ashbourne, Tean, Endon, Denstone and villages in between.

Zone One and Zone Two areas can be seen here.

Further visits can be arrange but an additional surcharge will be applied. Please contact us to discuss if you are out of area.

Home vet visits are no designed for emergency situations. In a true emergency it is likely your pet will require hospitalisation for further work up and stabilisation (e.g. blood tests, x-rays, IV fluids).
