What is your service area?

We offer in-home veterinary services all over Kalamazoo County. Our service area extends to Battle Creek, Plainwell/Otsego, Paw Paw, Schoolcraft, and everything in between. If you are outside our mobile vet service area, you can still contact us to see if we have availability.

How much are your services?

Pricing is based on a house call fee that varies upon location. Typically our minimum fee is $30, but can be up to $50 for appointments outside of our service area. Any animal who is receiving vaccinations will also receive an exam which can range from $25 to $30, depending on their age and health.

What animals can you provide services for?

Dogs, cats, rabbits, ferrets, and other mammals as well as fish. We do not service reptiles, amphibians, or birds.

Do you perform in home euthanasia in the home?

Yes. At home euthanasia is one of our most requested services.

Do you offer cremation services?

No, but we work with Life Tails, the pet division of Life Story Funeral Home in Kalamazoo. They will come to your home and pick up the pet and perform a communal cremation for $75 and individual cremation for an additional fee. If you do not wish to use Life Tails, you would be responsible for your pet’s remains.

Do you perform in-home surgeries?

No. This would be considered unethical and negligent due to safety concerns. 

Do you carry any flea/tick and heartworm medication with you?

Yes I do. However, I only carry Heartgard and Nexgad for dogs and Revolution for cats. Fortunately, I have a partnership with VetSource online store where many other medications can be purchased.

What is VetSource online store?

VetSource is an extremely trusted, reputable, and convenient online store who I have partnered with in order to provide my patients with guaranteed safe and high-quality medication – delivered to their door. Just like medication purchased at a veterinary hospital, manufacturer guarantees and warranties remain in place unlike other online vendors.
