  • What does it cost to have a veterinarian come to my home?

    There is a trip fee of $75 for clients within our service area, which includes much of Chester County and eastern Montgomery County. An additional fee applies for those outside our normal service area and this will be discussed when the appointment is requested.

    The pet examination fee is $40, with discounts given if the pet owner wants more than one pet to be seen on the same day.

    Prices for services such as vaccinations, laboratory testing, radiographs ("x-rays") and surgeries are comparable to stationary veterinary clinics. We will be happy to provide you a detailed estimate for all our services before coming to your home.

    Our pharmaceuticals, prescription diets and supplies are also competitively priced. What we do not have on board the truck can be ordered through our online store and delivered directly to your home, often with no charge for shipping and/or handling.
