House Call Safety

For animals, house calls make the experience of receiving medical care much less stressful. They are able to remain in the comfort and safety of their own home.

For pet owners, house call services provide convenience and time savings.

There are a few things to keep in mind for the safety of the animals, owners, and your mobile veterinarian.

Covid-19 Safety Protocols

Dr. Marcy strictly adheres to the guidelines set by Michigan Health and Human Services. Dr. Marcy will be wearing a mask and she expects that any person over the age of 6 wears a mask during the visit.

Muzzles May Be Required

Please don’t be offended if Dr. Marcy requests that your pet wears a muzzle. It is truly for everyone’s safety. Dr. Marcy understands that some dogs or cats are fearful and the only way they can communicate said fear is through a warning bite.

After all, Dr. Marcy would be considered a stranger at first, but we cannot wait until she becomes a part of the family.

Aggressive Pets

Firstly, there’s no such thing as a bad dog or cat. However, if your pet is too fearful for the visit, there may be some signs of aggression. If this happens, we can try rescheduling your pet with the addition of some antianxiety medications on-board to make the visit more enjoyable for everyone.

If your pet, is too aggressive for an in-home visit, Dr. Marcy would then recommend going to a brick & mortar practice for further care.
