House-call vet service
I searched for the topic, but didn't find anything.. perhaps the wrong keywords, so by all means, feel free to point me to an existing thread if you know of one.
I need to get a checkup for all 4 of my cats, and I really don't want to take them in. My vet has a house call service, and it's not really more expensive than taking them in. Probably less because I'd have to take them for 2 appointments, since my partner wouldn't be around to help (work), and 4 cats in boxes are just too much for me, even for the 4 blocks to the vet. I also have a very difficult time with handling some of them when it comes time to put them in a carrier, so I set up an appointment for the 2nd.
My hope is that this will make vet visits significantly less traumatizing, and maybe even help them establish something of a positive association with the vet. Attention, treats, and rubbings from semi-strangers, after all.
I was wondering if anyone here has any experience with house call vets. How was it? Was there anything about the process you didn't like? Anything you really liked? Was it difficult to get your cats to participate?
