Appointments for mobile visits in the greater Providence area, the East Bay of Rhode Island and nearby Massachusetts can be made by calling our hospital at:
401. 310. 0346
We are available to our patients both in the hospital and their own homes. Sterile surgical procedures must be performed in our hospital surgical suite, but almost all other patient care can be done in the mobile environment. We travel with state-of-the-art digital imaging equipment, mobile laboratory equipment and a complete pharmacy which enables us to provide comprehensive care to our patients whether we are in our hospital or in their homes.
There are many advantages to caring for pets in their own homes. For the pet, it is less stressful mentally and physically. There is no need to get into a pet carrier or take a scary ride in the car. There are no intimidating smells or sounds from unfamiliar pets in a waiting area. At home, pets behave more naturally which allows us to make a more accurate assessment of their wellness or illness. We can see their environment and know how it impacts their well-being. And we can make practical decisions about therapy as a team with their family members.
House calls are an excellent alternative when travel will be especially stressful for birds, pocket pets, puppies and kittens. House calls also make it simple to care for multiple pets without bringing everyone to the vet hospital as a group, and multiple pet discounts are available for these families.
"Dr. Jen and her entire staff are true traveling angels. When my old rescue dog had a bone infection, Dr. Jen fit us into her already packed day and came to our home, set up a triage right on the grass in the back yard. IV fluids and all...Amazing!"
