What To Expect
For many pet owners, the concept of a mobile veterinary clinic is somewhat foreign. It can be difficult to imagine how a mobile service would work. You may even wonder if it’s possible for your pet to receive the same level of care as in a traditional clinic. We’re here to set your mind at ease, once and for all, and to take some of the mystery out of mobile veterinary care.
Once scheduled, we will arrive at your home as close to the scheduled time as possible. At this time, you’ll simply bring your pet out to our RV – there’s no waiting room! We will arrive ready to assist you. Alternatively, you have the option to come and see us in our beautifully Fear-Free designed clinic at 7 Wenger Court in Carlisle, PA.
At Healing Paws we believe In building a strong client-practice relationship. We will sit down with you and your pet and discuss all of your concerns, questions, your pet’s past medical history, and current needs. We will ask that you also provide us with a copy of any past medical records you may have for your pet.
Fear-free is the way we like to be! When beginning our nose-to-tail physical exam on your pet we like to ease them into things slowly. Your pet may need a little time to get used to us or the mobile unit and that is ok. We come fully equipped with treats and fun distractions, and will allow your pet to explore our mobile unit as they wish to make them feel more comfortable.
Following a physical exam, we will administer vaccines if needed and give our recommendations for your pet’s health. We equip our unit with all things necessary to take samples for lab testing if needed, and carry many preventatives and medications within our unit.
After the visit is concluded, you can expect a follow up from either Dr. Sands, or another member of the team to check in with you, discuss the results of any tests that may have been sent to a laboratory, and provide any further guidance or advice that we feel may help with your particular situation. We want you to feel as though you are part of the team, because you are! Together we’ll work hard to help your furry friend enjoy a long, happy life.
