In-home vet care isn’t for everyone.
Some people just love the smell of a waiting room!
So, who uses in-home vet care, anyway? Is it just for the super rich or for people living on horse farms? Not exactly.
The biggest contingent of pet owners investing in the ease of in-home veterinary visits is busy professionals. The average American with a full-time job works over 47 hours a week; that leaves little time for other things like hanging out with family, cooking meals, and yes, taking pets to the vet. People with demanding jobs are just looking for an easier way to ensure their dogs and cats get top-notch medical attention without having to take a half-day to do it. In fact, busy professionals are the specific reason why Vetted PetCare offers visits from 8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. seven days a week.
Senior Pet Owners
Around 40% of Americans over 70 years old own a pet. That’s astounding! Seniors and pets go together like peanut butter and jelly. Research says owning a pet later in life can actually extend humans’ lifespans and keep the active and healthy. One of the biggest hurdles for many senior pet owners can be getting to the vet. Particularly for seniors who no longer drive, obtaining quality vet care for a loving companion can be nearly impossible since most rideshares and taxi services don’t allow pets. Scheduling in-home vet visits is a great way for seniors to ensure their pets’ needs are being met without putting themselves at risk by trekking to the vet’s office.
New Pet Owners
New pet owners inevitably underestimate the amount of times they’ll be visiting the vet. Between routine examinations, flea and heartworm prevention, and scheduled vaccinations, new pet owners can expect to be at the vet a minimum of six times that first year alone. And that’s only if the pet doesn’t come down with an ear infection or a bout of diarrhea! Investing in an annual care plan like the one from Vetted PetCare covers all the costs associated with first-time pet ownership and then some, plus it removes the inevitable hassles that come with traipsing to the vet’s office month after month.
Pet Owners with “Difficult” Pets
Sometimes it’s not the pet owner, but the pet, that makes trips to the vet’s office so unpleasant. For pets who suffer from anxiety surrounding travel or other animals, in-home vet appointments can be a Godsend. The ability to have their pet seen when they’re comfortable and calm as opposed to squirmy and agitated is more than enough reason for many pet owners to go in-home. Medical outcomes are always better for animals when they’re able to be evaluated in a controlled environment.
…and that’s just the tip of the iceberg! There’s no limit to who can benefit from in-home vet care. From families with children to car-less pet owners, the clientele of mobile veterinarian services is broad.
