Veterinary Care in the comfort of home
Dr. Steve Smith travels all over Los Angeles County to deliver veterinary care to dogs and cats. He gets calls every day from people that can't easily go to a veterinary hospital, because their pets are too big, too painful, too scared, too numerous, or otherwise just too difficult to manage.
Dr. Steve provides as many veterinary services as he can pack into your living room, kitchen, bathroom, patio, balcony or driveway. If there's something that you don't see here, please ask if it can be done at home!
A Better Way
During a house call, your pet will be probably be more calm and relaxed than when they go to a hospital, allowing for a more thorough and thoughtful physical examination.
Dr. Steve can observe how your pet behaves at home, as well as how the home environment influences their quality of life.
You'll get to see everything that happens, to be sure that your pet is being handled with appropriate care every step of the way. If there's something that you don't want to watch, let Dr. Steve know and he'll find a private place.
There's always plenty of time! House calls might last 20 minutes or they might last an hour, but there's always enough time to get everything done, and to answer all of your questions.
When the time comes to say goodbye to a family pet due to injury, illness or other unfortunate events, Dr. Steve can come to the home to provide gentle, peaceful and compassionate euthanasia. For additional information about this service, click here.
