Housecalls

If you or your pet are unable due to travel to the hospital, Your Pet’s Wellness makes complete veterinary care available in the comfort of your own home!

For routine visits, our doctors are able to:

  • Perform Vaccinations
  • Obtain samples for Bloodwork, Urinalysis, & other tests
  • Provide senior care & arthritis counseling
  • Prescribe Heartworm and Flea/Tick Medications
  • Provide on-site care for sick patients using our portable iSTAT hand-held blood lab for a fast, 5-minute diagnosis right in your home
  • Identify & treat many medical issues that may occur in your pet–ranging from digestive disorders, cancer, thyroid disorders, & behavioral issues
  • Provide Behavioral Modification Counseling

We are also able to perform at-home end-of-life services, for optimal privacy & comfort. For more information about this kind of care, please visit this page. You may also call us at (773) 697-8176 to inquire about availability.

 

Areas We Visit

While we are able to service most clients in the highlighted neighborhoods on the guide, we are not currently able to see those living more than 6 miles from our Bucktown clinic. Availability is also subject to schedule openings. Travel fees apply for all house calls & vary based on distance from the Bucktown clinic. Call now for a free quote! (773) 697-8176

Housecall Tip

Remember!

Housecalls are available by appointment only during regular hospital business hours.

We strongly advise that pet owners call ahead to book an appointment in advance, because availability may be limited. However, same or next-day appointments can sometimes be accommodated for patients in need of urgent care.

Parking

Clients are responsible for applicable parking fees. When scheduling your appointment, please let our Patient Care Coordinators know what type of parking is available to our doctors (street, permit, lot, garage, etc.). If you have permits for our doctors to use,  please have these ready for them when they arrive. Any garage or meter fees will be added onto your invoice.

In the Home

For cats, we strongly recommend that you close off doors to all bedrooms, closets, or any other rooms that your cat likes to hide in. You may even want to consider placing your cat in a bathroom about 30 minutes before we arrive to ensure that we do not spend more valuable time searching for kitty when we could be examining him or her.

If we expect we’ll need a urine sample, please remove access to litterboxes for at least 3-4 hours before the appointment.

Payment

We accept Visa, Master Card, Discover, personal checks (checks subject to an additional $5 Check Processing Fee), and cash as payment for house calls. If you give us a call, one of our Patient Care Coordinators will be more than happy to generate an estimate of charges for you ahead of time!

Once your housecall has been scheduled, you can expect your veterinarian and a technician to arrive ready to perform a full physical exam and any other treatments that are needed. New patients will receive an Informational Folder packed with great information on care recommendations and other pet-related referrals. We also bring with us what we like to call “vet in a bag,” so we have all the supplies we need to obtain lab samples, dispense medications, clean ears, trim nails, and so much more!

While in your home, your YPW veterinarian will devote as much time as you need to discuss your pet’s health and any questions that you may have.
