What CANNOT be done in your home

Let’s face it – we have limitations! We do not have (or want!) a specialized RV, but a Prius hybrid station wagon.

That’s because we want your pet to stay in your home! (And you wouldn’t want your pet to have surgery in the back of a van, would you!?!)

We cannot perform the following services in your home, but have great relationships with six local veterinary clinics: Northgate Small Animal Hospital in Collinsville, Best Friends Animal Hospital in Swansea, Davis Pet Hospital in Collinsville, Freeburg Animal Hospital, Animal Emergency Center, and Four Paws Animal Hospital in O’Fallon. They can provide the following services at the clinic as the need arises:

  • Dentals (cleaning and extractions under general anesthesia)
  • X-rays
  • Spay and neuter surgeries
  • Ultrasound
  • Tumor removal and other soft tissue surgeries
  • Cruciate ligament repair and other orthopedic procedures
  • Hospitalizations of critically ill animals
  • Sedation for any procedure

Finally, we cannot treat animals that are extremely aggressive. Many animals may be scared in a vet clinic, but do quite well with a doctor at home. Often, simply taking time to let the pet warm up to the “stranger” is all we need! We have found a lot of animals who act aggressively in a vet clinic do well at home.

That being said: Some pets require sedation (or other more extreme means of restraint) at a veterinary clinic due to aggression. If that is warranted at home, we cannot perform that type of restraint in a home setting.
