Sick Animal Visits
In home care for sick patients includes full physical exams, diagnostics, laboratory
services, treatments such as medication and fluid administration, pain control, and dispensing of medication. Hospice care is also available, including quality of life evaluations, pain management and end-of-life care.
If your pet is sick, Dr. Mills will first discuss with you if your pet would be better treated at a veterinary hospital rather than a house call. Circumstances would include cases requiring immediate hospitalization, radiographs, advanced diagnostics or surgery. We can provide transportation to our partner clinics and to the emergency clinic for critical cases. Dr. Mills will oversee and maintain the care of his patients transferred to other clinics and assist clients with decision making in these cases.
At home, watch for subtle changes in your pet’s body weight, water intake, appetite,
urination and bowel habits, lumps and bumps, general activity level and attitude. These changes may be signs of medical problems and Mills Mobile Vet should be alerted immediately.
