When you think of a vet visit, a vet clinic immediately comes to most minds. However, visiting a vet clinic in-person may not always be the best option for pet parents, be it due to emergencies, mobility issues, a high-strung pet, transportation woes, or more. In instances like these, it’s best to have professional vet care come to you instead, which is why mobile vet services like Happy Vet is a lifesaver.

A provider of teleconsultations (via phone or video call with telemedicine provided) and house call visits with a van that is well-equipped to transport emergency cases to the nearest facility for stepped-up care, here’s a deeper dive into why everyone with a fur-baby should know about Happy Vet and their services:

1. It reduces stress on your pet

It’s no secret that vet visits can be a stressful experience for many pets. For instance, cats’ and dogs’ common stress triggers include the removal from familiar surroundings, unfamiliar smells, sounds, sights, and car rides, which are all thrown at a pet on a trip to the vet.

By utilising Happy Vet’s mobile vet services, your pet gets to enjoy access to proper healthcare in the comfort of its own home, which makes the entire experience that much more bearable, and maybe even enjoyable! Nobody wants to see their pet distressed, so this relieves a lot of stress on the hoomans as well.

The same applies to home euthanasia, where furkids can depart as serenely as possible from the security and comfort of their home, and fur-parents can have the privacy, time, and space to say their final goodbyes.

One such fur parent, Jacintha Lim, said, “We wanted our furkid to go peacefully from the comforts of his home. During the euthanasia process, Dr Forest was very gentle with our dear Mino the entire time and explained each step very clearly to us. It definitely helped us understand better and assured us that he was in good hands undergoing minimal pain. She also gave us space to say our final goodbyes and was very considerate of our feelings!

2. It’s highly convenient & especially useful at times

Since Happy Vet comes to you, one of the most obvious benefits of this service is the convenience provided. Bringing your pet to the vet requires you to take time off your busy schedule, and you may experience hassles while getting your pet to the clinic. With teleconsultation and house call visits, however, pet owners can save on travel time and cost, and it is also particularly beneficial for pet owners who may have mobility issues.

In cases of accidents where it’s advisable not to move the injured pet, a mobile vet service that comes to where you’re at is also important because transporting it to a clinic without professional guidance may only serve to harm the animal even more. Of course, private teleconsultations are also increasing in demand and especially necessary today due to the pandemic as a way to safeguard your pet’s health while keeping you and your community safe.

Additionally, what’s useful about having a vet come to your home is that you get to have your pet’s living environment assessed professionally and receive suggestions on how you may improve it!

3. There is top-notch professionalism & quality healthcare

Founded by a pair of God-siblings, Forest and Genie, Happy Vet’s suite of services will provide for your pet’s every healthcare need. Happy Vet’s daily medical operations are led by Dr Forest, who holds an honours degree in veterinary medicine from the University of Melbourne and has rich clinical experience under her belt, which can assure pawrents of quality and comprehensive pet healthcare.
