At Rio Rancho Mobile Vet, I offer a variety of services to care for your pet. I understand that it is not always possible to bring your pet to a clinic. That is why I offer house calls and see animals in your own home.
There are many challenges in caring for an animal that cannot be moved from their location for one reason or another. Please let us know of any specific requests or conditions that will require special attention. I promise to communicate with you throughout the process to make sure it goes smoothly for you and your animal. If you have any questions or would like more information on how I can care for your pet, please contact us today.
I have had to make the decision to end a pet’s life so I know and understand how hard it can be. Because of this, I will do everything I can to help you through the process. Many pets have trouble getting around in their old age, so it can be quite difficult to bring them into the hospital. You may want extra privacy during this horrible time and to allow your other pets to see their friends after he or she has passed away. This helps other pets with their grieving as well.
Many people are too upset to drive. Because of this, I am happy to come to you and your pets. I hope that you and your pets will be more relaxed in the privacy of your own home, allowing the whole process to go much more smoothly.
We use Albuquerque Pet Memorial Service so that you have the option of a communal or private cremation for your furry family member.
Exams and Consultations
I will get a chance to talk to you and see if you are having any trouble with your pet. I will also go over diet, preventative medicine, and exercise to ensure that your pet is as healthy as possible. Then, I will do a complete physical examination on your pet. It is always good to have a baseline in case your pet ever becomes ill. I also want to monitor your pet’s weight, ensuring that your pet stays a healthy weight. It is much easier to start a diet when a pet is a pound overweight instead of fifteen! I will also look for any potential problems. The goal is to catch any problems before they become major ones. The sooner that I am able to catch a problem, the easier it is to treat it and the more likely that your pet will make a full recovery!
Obesity is a common problem among pets, as it can be easy to over-feed a pet that knows how to beg. But being overweight is a serious problem for animals, and can cause real health problems as they get older. With proper diet and exercise, all pets should be able to meet their dietary needs and be within a healthy weight range. I can recommend specialized diets for pets with allergies and specific health conditions.
Pets’ nutritional needs change as they enter different stages of their lives. The best way to make sure your pet’s needs are being met is to consult with us about a diet made specifically for his or her lifestyle.
There are a variety of diseases which affect our pets and other animals. This makes proper vaccination vital in protecting them from the many types of illnesses they are susceptible to. It’s important to consult with us about the unique risks of living in our region. I am happy to discuss the benefits of protecting your pet with vaccinations, as well as, provide you with information on the required vaccinations for your pet.
Every year, thousands and thousands of pets go missing. Not knowing where your pet is or how to bring them back can be a helpless, hopeless feeling. It’s a tragedy that happens all too often. But there is a simple, safe, and effective way to ensure your pet’s safety and retrieval should they ever become lost. Microchipping is a standard procedure that implants a tiny chip underneath your pet’s fur. It is a painless and relatively fast procedure, and is completely safe. This microchip is registered with your pet’s vital information, and can be scanned by any veterinarian or animal shelter so that they can return your pet directly to you.
Regular checkups allow us to establish a baseline in your pet’s health and make us aware of any changes that may indicate future problems. I highly recommend regular exams for your pets. Often times health problems that go undetected can become more serious issues when left untreated, so checkups are important even when your pet appears healthy.
I am able to refer my clients as needed for radiographs, surgical procedures, hospitalization and specialist services. Schedule an appointment today for more information.
