3 Reasons To Offer Mobile Veterinary Services

Health & Medical Blog

As a veterinarian, you might currently require pet owners to bring patients to your office for their medical care. However, offering a mobile veterinary service and going to your clients' homes can actually be a better choice. These are a few reasons to consider starting up a mobile veterinary clinic:

1. Provide Services for Those Without Transportation

Some people just don't have their own transportation, for one reason or another. For these people, taking a pet to the vet can be difficult or almost impossible. Taking public transportation can be difficult enough as it is, and many public transportation options do not allow people to bring their pets on board. For these pet owners, a mobile veterinary service can be a lifesaver since they can still ensure that their pets get the care that they need, even though they do not have a car.

2. Help Prevent Pets from Becoming More Stressed

Some pets become incredibly stressed out in the car, and many do not like being surrounded by other animals in an unfamiliar veterinary clinic. This can be tough for many pets and can be even worse for those that are sick. With a mobile service, you can take your services to the pet's home, where it will be in familiar and comfortable surroundings. This can help prevent sick pets from becoming even more upset and stressed out

3. Minimize Your Overhead

If you do not currently have a veterinary office but are thinking about opening one, you have to think about all of the costs of opening and running it. If you do currently have a traditional veterinary practice and are having trouble making ends meet, you could be wondering if there are ways that you can reduce overhead. Even though there is obviously an expense related to running a mobile clinic, and even though you may have to invest in things like a portable ultrasound machine that you can take around with you, you might find that your overhead is a lot cheaper with a mobile clinic versus a more traditional clinic in an office. This can help you run a more profitable business.

As you can see, if you are a veterinarian, starting up a mobile veterinary service could be a wonderful idea for both you and your clients. Therefore, this might be something that you will want to think about doing if you have not already.

Help Others Make Health Decisions when They Cannot

One day I was playing a game of basketball with a friend, and the friend I was playing ball with tripped and took a hard fall to the ground. He hit his head hard, but he insisted he was okay and just wanted to go home and take a nap. I knew in my heart that he was not thinking clearly, and I didn't feel right letting him go home. I talked him into letting me take him to the hospital, and after some tests, it was determined he had a bad concussion. The doctors told me that if I had let him go home and sleep, things could have taken a turn for the worse. I created this blog to remind everyone to look out for each other after injuries. Not everyone thinks clearly after a head injury, and just being a good friend could save a life.
