We come to you, at the time that best suits your schedule, providing an unprecedented in-home experience for you and your pet. Total visit time is approximately 45 minutes to 1 hour. The consultation can be geared towards behavior, nutrition, dental care, arthritis management, or a topic that best suits the needs of your pet.
This is an antigen test that requires one drop of blood, and yields a result in minutes. An annual exam and heartworm test are required to prescribe monthly heartworm prevention to your pet.
One drop of blood required with results available in minutes for these two very common feline viruses. We recommend testing your cat annually, and at the time of bringing any new cat into the household.
Routine testing helps us identify underlying disease in apparently “healthy” patients, before it’s too late! Samples are taken in the comfort of home with results available in 24-48 hours.
The CBC can help determine many things about your pet, including whether he or she is dehydrated, anemic (having inadequate numbers of red blood cells), or dealing with an infection. The CBC measures the quantity and quality of red blood cells, white blood cells, and platelets.
The chemistry profile measures a variety of chemicals and enzymes (proteins that are involved in the body’s chemical reactions) in the blood to provide very general information about the status of organ health and function, especially of the liver, kidneys, and pancreas. The chemistry profile also shows the patient’s blood sugar level and the quantities of important electrolytes (molecules like sodium, calcium, and potassium) in the blood.
Endocrine disease is caused by an imbalance in hormone levels due to the body producing too much or too little of a specific hormone in the body. Hormones are vital in orchestrating communication.The health effects are variable, with some endocrine diseases being fatal if left untreated – but others are more easily managed. Some common examples: thyroid disease (hyperhyroidism, hypothyroidism), Cushing’s disease (hyperadrenocorticism), Addison’s disease (hypoadrenocorticism), Diabetes mellitus.
The technique of FNA involves a small sterile needle being introduced into a “lump or bump” while the plunger of the attached syringe is pulled back to collect tissue cells or fluid from the site into the syringe. Cytology is the microscopic examination of cells that have been collected from body tissues. By examining the appearance of these cells and looking for inflammation, infection, or cancer, it is often possible to diagnose specific diseases or determine the nature of a pet's illness.
Antigen testing detects nearly 2x more infections than fecal flotation alone- don’t let the microscope miss a hookworm, roundworm, or whipworm infection in your pet! Antigen testing identifies infections prior to eggs being shed, helping keep your pet (as well as you and your family) safe.
Vaccine duration depends on several factors such as your pet’s age, previous vaccination history, and environment. Rabies tag included. Dogs and cats may receive their first Rabies vaccine at 12-16 weeks of age. This is a core vaccine.
This protects against a number of infectious diseases that affect the respiratory, gastrointestinal and neurological systems. If possible, this vaccine should be started at 6-8 weeks of age in dogs, receiving a booster every 2-4 weeks of age until he/she is at least 16 weeks old. This schedule helps keep puppies protected as their maternal antibody levels are tapering off. Vaccine duration depends on several factors. This is a core vaccine.
This is a vaccine given intranasally based on your dog’s lifestyle. We recommend vaccinating for this bacteria if your pet is taken to the groomer, a boarding facility, dog park, doggy daycare, dog park, training classes, public pet events or there is a high chance of exposure due to close proximity of other dogs (I.e. shared walking areas in a neighborhood or apartment complex).
Leptospirosis is carried by wildlife such as rats, raccoons, opossums, skunks, squirrels, and deer and is found in places where they may urinate, including lakes, streams, puddles, or soil in your backyard. Any dog that regularly goes outside is potentially at risk of contracting this disease. While the leptospirosis vaccine is not currently a required immunization for dogs, it is highly recommended for any dog that commonly goes outside, even just to go to the bathroom in the backyard.
This is a vaccine given based on your dog’s lifestyle.

Lyme disease is a bacterial infection transmitted by ticks to dogs, other animals and people. Most Lyme disease in the United States is spread by deer ticks and is found primarily in the Northeast, Southeast and upper Midwest. The western black-legged tick is the primary cause of Lyme disease transmission in the western states. Clinical signs of disease include arthritis, lameness, fever, anorexia, and fatigue.
This protects against a number of infectious diseases that cause upper respiratoryand ocular symptoms, as well as oral ulcers and severe gastrointestinal disease. If possible, this vaccine should be started at 6-8 weeks of age in cats, receiving a booster every 2-4 weeks of age until he/she is at least 16 weeks old. This schedule helps keep kittens protected as their maternal antibody levels are tapering off. Vaccine duration depends on several factors. This is a core vaccine.
If not protected by vaccination, this is an incurable virus causing cancer in cats such as lymphoma and leukemia. It may also cause anemia and immunodeficiencies resulting in the increased susceptibility to other infectious disease. The prognosis for cats in infected with FeLV is poor and the virus is spread in the saliva in which may contaminant a variety of different objects. We recommend vaccination for cats that go outdoors.
New and established patients can be treated for numerous conditions (acute and chronic) with medications kept on hand, or delivered directly to your door.
Medications to treat common conditions are carried, such as for skin allergies and skin infections, ear and eye infections, pain, diarrhea, vomiting, mild dehydration, minor wounds, and severe anxiety. Select heartworm/flea/tick/intestinal parasite treatment and prevention is also readily available (most commonly single doses for growing puppies/kittens receiving their puppy/kitten boosters).
We are partnered with VetSource to provide direct home delivery of your pet’s long-term medications, i.e. thyroid hormone supplements, heartworm/flea/tick/intestinal parasite prevention (any size or quantity) eye medications (to treat glaucoma or dry eye, for example), arthritis supplements, prescription foods, etc. Communication, prescription reminders, and doctor authorization are all conveniently handled through e-mail. Please visit the “online pharmacy“ section for more information.
Some medications are needed in much smaller or larger dosages, need to be flavored for your pet to be able to take their medication as prescribed, or your pet may prefer a liquid or “tiny-tab” over a large capsule. WellPack provides direct home delivery to your door for this exceptional local service as well.
Including but not limited to: skin allergies and skin infections, ear and eye infections, pain, arthritis management, diarrhea, vomiting, mild dehydration (due to chronic kidney disease, vomiting/diarrhea, etc) and minor wounds/soft tissue injuries.
We take our time with every pet to provide reward and praise, making this strange sensation a positive experience for them. In the event your pet is still very anxious and uncomfortable with this process, we do provide a “stress-less” option. This includes gentle sedation if your pet does not allow for routine nail trims.
Some pets need their anal glands routinely expressed. These glands are extensions of their skin, and can often suffer from allergic skin disease, creating secondary inflammation and infection. These problems can be addressed if present at the time of anal gland expression.
This service can be provided as a routine maintenance cleaning at the time of in-home consultation, or to give a clean slate prior to medicating infected ears.
The list goes on! Please contact us if you do not see your desired veterinary service listed here! We work closely with many local veterinary hospitals if we find your pet needs or would benefit from radiographs and/or any surgical procedures.
Every pet has different needs based on their age, lifestyle, and current health status. We create a specialized treatment plan for every pet during their in-home consultation.
