Project Description

Procedures

We can perform a wide range of procedures normally offered in the vet clinic in the comfort of your own home. This means less stress for you and your pet but the same great service!

Claw Clipping

We can trim your dogs, cats or rabbits claws at home. During a consult for something else or Dr Katie can come out just to clip their claws, especially if there is an ingrowing claw which can be very painful.

Anal Glands

Some dog’s may suffer from impacted or infected anal glands which can be very sore. You will likely see your dog scooting their bum along the floor, messing with their back end or smelling “fishy”. If so it is best to get them checked and Dr Katie can empty them out making your pooch much more comfortable.

Ear Cleaning and Exam

If your pet has a sore or smelly ear, or more discharge than normal they may need it checking. Dr Katie can clean your pet’s ears out and examine them to see if they require any further treatment.

Eye Exams

A full eye exam can be undertaken at home, although a darkened room makes this much easier so we may have to shut the curtains. Dr Katie can examine your pet’s eyes including testing tear production and using dye to check for ulcers.

Wound Care & Bandage Changes

Minor wounds which don’t require stitches can be cared for in the home environment, whereas more serious ones would require going to the clinic for surgery. If your pet has a longer wound or injury which requires regular bandage changes Dr Katie can undertake these at home as and when necessary.

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).
So please ring Lime Trees Veterinary Clinic on 01782 385285.

Their hospital in Meir also host VetsNow for out of hours cover.

Dr Katie mainly sees dogs, cats and rabbits.

Guinea pigs, small ferries (e.g. hamster, rats, gerbils, mice) and tortoises can also be seen but for more complex cases Dr Katie would recommend seeing an exotic pet specialist vet.
