Here at Fairfax Mobile Veterinary Care, we provide mobile veterinary services for your convenience and for your pet's comfort. We understand the anxiety and fear that many house pets feel about being brought to the vet, and by providing at home pet care, we're able to provide many of the same services as a traditional veterinary office, but in the comfort of a space that's familiar to your pet. Below is a summary of the mobile services we offer in Northern Virginia.
Physical Examination / Consultation
Spay / Neuter Surgery (procedure for these services are done at affiliated hospital)
Minor / Major Surgical (procedure for these services are done at affiliated hospital)
X-rays (procedure for these services are done at affiliated hospital)
Parasite Control / Heartworm / Flea and Tick control medication
Pet prescription food
Physical Exams and Vaccinations
Regular wellness exams are a great way to stay up-to-date on your pet's health, as well as receive recommendations from your vet on steps you can take to help your pet lead a happier and healthier life. Physical exams are just one of the many services our Fairfax mobile vet is able to offer. For most pets, one wellness exam per year is ideal. However, for senior pet care, twice-annual visits may be recommended. If your pet is in need of vaccinations or immunizations, we can perform those in the comfort of your home as well.
Parasite Control, Heartworm, Etc.
Protecting your pets from parasites, heartworm, fleas, ticks, and other pests is a must. This is where we come in. Rather than you bringing your pet into our office for these medications, we'll come to your home and take care of it in a matter of minutes. If you're not sure what kind of prevention medications will be best for your pet, we would also be happy to make a recommendation for you.
Microchipping is a great technology that can help you retrieve your pet in the event that it escapes from your home or otherwise gets lost. A small microchip containing your personal contract information can be quickly and painlessly embedded into your pet's skin (usually around the scruff of the neck). From there, if your pet is found without any tags or ID, a chip scanner can be used to obtain your contact information and ultimately, to reunite you with your pet. This is yet another mobile service we offer for your convenience.
Making the decision to have your pet put to sleep is never easy, but when your pet's quality of life has deteriorated as a result of an injury or medical condition, this can sometimes be the best choice. Make the process easier on both you and your pet by having euthanasia performed in your home.
What if your pet has a medical emergency? Our team can refer you to a Fairfax emergency veterinarian. The same goes for more involved medical care, such as spay and neuter procedures and other surgeries.
When it comes to your pet's health, don't settle for anything less than the best. Contact Fairfax Mobile Veterinary Care today at 703-772-1263 to schedule your house call. We look forward to serving you and putting our expertise to work in improving your pet's health and happiness.
