Getting around Los Angeles isn’t always easy, it’s rarely quick, and combined with our often hectic lifestyles, it’s almost never convenient. Think you hate Los Angeles traffic? Your aversion is quite likely nothing compared to how much your pet hates it. While some of our animal friends travel well, many don’t. And, those that do travel well rarely skip out on the anxiety that comes with arriving at the vet. If only there was a way to skip the hassle of Los Angeles traffic and keep your pet in the peace and comfort of their own home, all the while still delivering them the quality health services they need… Oh wait, there is!
Mobile veterinary services in Los Angeles may seem like something reserved for celebrities, but it’s something available to all pet owners. There are a variety of mobile veterinary services out there, the key is in choosing the best mobile veterinarian for your needs.
So, you’ve decided the added convenience of a mobile veterinarian is best for you. What now? How do you even go about finding the right fit for you? What should you look for?
One of the most important things? Hours. What hours does your potential mobile veterinarian operate? And, do their hours match your hours of availability? Do they offer evening and weekend hours? Are emergency services available after hours? And if not, are emergency contacts that work with your veterinarian available? Remember, your mobile veterinarian should work for you. Convenience is a major perk when choosing a mobile veterinarian in Los Angeles.
Next, be sure that when choosing a mobile veterinarian in Los Angeles, they have the resources you need. So, they tick all the availability and services boxes, but do they have access to the medications and equipment they’ll need to be your pet’s primary care provider? For example, if your dog has a heart condition, does your veterinarian of choice have the ability to run the tests needed to monitor the condition? Can they provide access to the necessary medications to manage the condition? Be sure that any necessary resources like vaccinations, medications, lab work, and imaging are readily available. The more resources they have available, the less you and your pet will need to leave your home to take care of pet-related health care tasks. The convenience of a mobile vet is lost when you’re forced to frequently schedule out-of-the-home appointments.
