Quality of Life Consultation______$150

 

The Quality of Life exam includes: Approx. 2 hours at your home:  Detailed exam/consult, an extensive review of previous history, updating medical records, and a caring & objective, interactive discussion of your pet's health & needs. As well, we will  consider your physical, financial, emotional, and family considerations, as well as consider your pet's ability to cope with current conditions or additional care options). Please use the "General Enquiry" Contact Form for either of these exam types, and list your pets specific conditions and your concerns. 

 

  • Initial phone enquiries and indepth review of your pet's condition.

  • Travel time to and from your home, including preparation time

  • Convenience of evening and weekend availability when scheduled in advance.

  • Flexible scheduling to consider your needs whenever possible

  • Commitment to keeping your appointment - we are a 100% housecall service, and do not have the considerations of a clinic.

  • The cost allows for travel, equipment, preparation, licensing, and insurance, required for a veterinarian to come to your home and help your pet within your pet's environment. 

3) Treatment, Tests & Medication Costs

 

House Call Rates Include the following services:

 

College of Veterinarians of British Columbia Guidelines:

 

 Additional care, treatments, and tests can also be coordinated with local veterinary clinics or with specialists - whatever is best for your pet and your abilities as your pet's family and guardian.

 

Costs for additional treatments, tests and medications will vary depending on your pet's needs. We will provide an estimate of tests and treatment costs by phone, email or in person, once we have your information and can advise you of the range of treatment and test options for your pets conditions and your considerations in caring for your pet. 

Rates for veterinary services (i.e. the exam, plus any vaccines, tests, acupuncture, or home euthanasias, etc) follow the fee guidelines set by the College of Veterinarians of B.C.(CVBC). An  tailored estimate will be provided by phone or email, or during our home visit, regarding specific possible tests and treatments for your pet, once we have recieved your contact email or seen your pet at home. The costs for tests or treatments  are in addition to the housecall rate and exam/consult  rate outlined above. 

4) *A veterinary assistant may be required in situations where the veterinarian feels that it is warranted ( highly anxious or restless pets, insufficient owner verification, owners with physical concerns and for most 1st time cat exams).  The cost is approximately $35.00 for the 1st hour, depending on time and area.  A vet assistant is not routinely needed for Peaceful Home Euthanasia.

A) Home health exam/consult:

 

For your first visit, please allow for an average of 1.5 - 2 hours for your  veterinary consultation at your pet's home (120.00 - 155.00),  plus the housecall rate and treatments or tests.

 

This time is especially warranted for senior or nervous pets, pets with  multiple or chronic conditions, and allows for an indepth discussions on the health and happiness of your pet. We will formulate an updated health and comfort plan according to  your physical, financial, emotional, and family considerations. As well, we will consider your pet's ability to cope with current conditions or additional care options).
