House Calls for Pets is a veterinary practice dedicated to enriching end of life care for pets.
My house call practice is closed until Spring.
During the pandemic I have been offering at-home outdoor appointments for veterinary aid-in-dying. This worked well for many pets over the summer, but now that the winter weather is here, even that is no longer possible.
House Calls for Pets will be in hibernation until the Spring.

Our new reality makes these trying times for everyone, and it can add an extra layer of worry for anyone who is contemplating the impending loss of a beloved friend and family member. My goal has always been to provide the most gentle, loving, supported death possible, and to allow pets to remain in their safe space while also preserving their connection to the people they trust most in the world. In these new times we will need to employ some creative new measures to stay true to that goal. It may still be possible to maintain connection with your pet, and preserve that sense of being fully-present for them, even as we respect physical-distancing from each other and do our part to limit the spread of the novel coronavirus.
This does mean that for the for-seeable future all appointments will need to be outside (possibly in your backyard, on a porch, or in an uncluttered garage) and I will need you to partner with me to maintain a 6 to 10 foot distance between us at all times. But if this scenario would be an acceptable one for your pet, please contact me and together we can discuss a plan to make this happen.
