There’s nothing worse than getting sick when you’re traveling, except maybe when your dog gets sick while you’re traveling. When you’re out of town, it can be incredibly overwhelming to have a sick pet.
What should you do when your dog becomes ill during travel? First, don’t panic. Second, call Vetted.
What is Vetted PetCare?
Vetted PetCare is a completely mobile veterinary service based out of Los Angeles, CA. Our vets are fully licensed and most have years and years of office-based vet experience. They decided to work with Vetted so they could see their patients (dogs and cats) in their home environments where they’re most comfortable.
What Should I Do When My Dog is Sick During Travel?
As we mentioned above, it’s important not to panic if your dog falls ill. If the illness is serious – inability to breathe, seizing, uncontrollable vomiting, etc. – take your dog to the closest emergency vet you can find. If you’re at a hotel, the front desk should be able to point you in the right direction.
If your dog has a lesser illness but still needs to be seen by a vet – an exhausting cold, a sudden limp, a bout of diarrhea – call Vetted PetCare right away. You can schedule an appointment with one of our local vets right as soon as possible, and you don’t even have to worry about moving your dog.
Will a Mobile Vet Come to My Hotel?
Yes! Vetted vets have attended to pets just about everywhere. We’ve been called to hotels, motels, Airbnbs, grandma’s house, the backseat of a car, the office…you name it. Wherever your pet is, we’ll come to you. This is particularly useful when you’re traveling because you don’t have to worry about getting to our office (especially if you don’t have a vehicle) and you dvon’t have to navigate your way through an unfamiliar city.
Isn’t Mobile Vet Care Expensive?
Not at all! When you factor in the hassle of getting you and your pet to the vet’s office, mobile vet assistance is probably even less expensive than a trip to the traditional vet. At Vetted, we offer both one-time pricing and annual pricing to serve all kinds of clients. Traveling pet owners are simply charged a one-time fee for their dog’s examination, then they’re responsible for picking up and paying for any prescriptions their vet might prescribe. That’s it! The fee isn’t charged until the vet has seen your pet, and it even includes unlimited app-based Q&A and a one-time video or phone call follow up with the vet who saw your pet just to make sure things are going well.
When you travel with Vetted PetCare’s number in your phone, you’re traveling with a vet on-call. We’re your dog’s friend on the road…we know pets don’t just get sick when it’s convenient!
