Tips For Preparing For A Veterinary House Call

June 15, 2023

Did you know that veterinary house calls are becoming more and more popular? It isn’t hard to see why: you really can’t beat the convenience of having your furry pal’s doctor come to you. This is also much easier on Fluffy and Fido, as their daily napping and playtime schedules will only be minimally disrupted. A local Plano, IL vet offers some advice on getting prepared for a house call in this article.


You’ll want to make sure that your pet is in a spot where you can easily get them when it’s time for their examination. Close doors to bedrooms or any other spots where Fluffy may want to go hide. You don’t want to spend precious time coaxing your four-legged pal out from beneath a bed or behind a couch!

Preparing A Spot

Veterinarians do need a good spot where we can examine our patients. Clear a space on a table or counter. You’ll want to pick a place with good lighting, or temporarily move a lamp to brighten the area up a bit. You may also want to put a cover down, such as a plastic tablecloth, in case of spills or accidents.


It’s a good idea to have your pet’s prior records on hand, especially if this is your first time with a new vet. Keep Fido and Fluffy’s paperwork (including new forms) in a dedicated folder, so they are always easy to find.

Pet Workout

If your furry pal is still young and active, tire them out with a walk and/or play session before the doctor arrives. Fido and Fluffy are much more amenable when they’re a bit tired!


Another thing that would be helpful is setting up wi-fi access. You don’t have to give up your password: just set up a guest account. You can always delete or disable it after the appointment.


One thing that is great about mobile vet appointments is that they’re easy to fit into your schedule. This is wonderful for stay-home parents, people who work from home, and anyone who is just very busy. (Tip: always add some cushion time around the appointment, in case there is a delay or the exam takes longer than expected.)
