Why schedule a house-call?
 House-calls are an intelligent alternative offering:
  • personalized service & convenience
  • veterinary care that is LESS STRESSFUL for most cats. 
 Every effort is made to ensure a low-stress, comfortable & safe experience. Home visits allow evaluation not only of the cat, but their relationship with other family members (pets & people) along with their surrounding environment. Home visits offer valuable clues to behavioural and medical problems.

 Providing a house-call practice limits what can legally be done IN-HOME. Every effort is made to provide clients and patients with FULL SERVICE. We work cooperatively with area specialists such as: internists, cardiologists, oncologists, surgeons, dentists, ophthalmologists, & emergency hospitals to provide COMPLETE care for our patients.

 Every effort is made to accommodate patients into our schedule promptly, but unfortunately at times we have a wait list. We enforce our cancellation policy* and require >24 hours notice of cancellation to avoid cancellation fees.

 We have been providing house-calls to cats and their people in Northern Virginia since 1995.
