As a tech-enabled mobile veterinary provider, Bettervet is a full service practice that offers all of the expert veterinary care your pet needs in the comfort of your home. Your primary BetterVet doctor will be with you every step of the way.
We provide the following veterinary services in the comfort of your home
Our video consultations make accessing reliable veterinary care easier than ever. You’ll be face-to-face with one of our doctors, who can view your pet through the camera and discuss an action plan for his/her care. These consultations are laid-back and stress-free for your pet.
After a quick blood draw, we are able to test for heartworm disease and three tick-borne diseases in minutes! If your pet requires complete blood work, we’ll submit samples to our laboratory and report results within 2-3 days.
Vaccinations play a vital part in your pet’s preventative healthcare and long-term wellness. While every pet needs core vaccinations, additional vaccines may be dependent on your pet’s lifestyle. Your BetterVet veterinarian can explain the options and create a vaccine plan tailored to your pet.
Routine check-ups are key to your furry family member’s health and longevity: we always recommend an annual wellness exam. For puppies and kittens needing initial vaccines, visits may be more frequent. Every annual wellness visit will include a full physical examination, discussion of your pet’s lifestyle and in-home environment, required diagnostic testing, and appropriate vaccinations.
Our doctors take a holistic, integrated approach to your pet’s wellbeing. We offer individual consultations specific to your pet’s age, breed and needs to address separation anxiety, stress-induced behaviors, obesity, and weight loss.
If you plan on traveling with your pet, especially abroad, s/he will need a health certificate. Each country has different requirements; our USDA-certified doctors will work with you to make sure your pet has the appropriate documents to travel with you.
Just like humans, pets can develop allergies to food, environment, and other substances. Allergy testing is the only way to identify the source of your pet’s allergies. The results can then be used to develop tailored immunotherapy plans to treat the underlying cause of your pet’s allergies.
If your pet is ever suddenly feeling sick or unwell, we can give you immediate help s/he needs through telemedicine, and we can come to you with same-day and next-day home visit appointments.
Skin conditions such as ringworm or symptoms like rashes can cause stress and discomfort to your pet. Our doctors can provide a thorough dermatologic examination along with any necessary diagnostics and treatments for your pet.
If you see your pet exhibiting odd, abnormal behavior, we offer detailed examinations to help diagnose any underlying neurological conditions your pet may have. The right diagnosis can ensure the right treatment for your pet.
Knowing when to say goodbye to your furry family member is always a difficult and personal decision. Your BetterVet veterinarian will work closely with you to answer any questions about palliative care and quality of life. When the time comes, we’ll provide a peaceful, compassionate, and pain-free environment for you and your pet to say your final goodbyes.
Our four-legged family members can develop orthopedic issues at any point in their lifespans. Your BetterVet veterinarian can perform a detailed orthopedic examination, provide appropriate pain control, and let you know if imaging will be recommended for your pet.
If your pet suffers from chronic pain, our doctors can work with you and your pet to create a custom treatment plan suited to your pet’s needs.
As an important part of a cardiology work-up, an ECG assesses electrical signals transmitted through your pet’s heart. Unlike stationary practices, we are able to perform an ECG for your pet in the comfort of your home.
Microchips ensure that you will be able to find your pet if s/he ever becomes lost. We recommend that all pet parents microchip their pets. Our doctors can insert a microchip conveniently in your home.
Ultrasonography is a non-invasive, safe, advanced imaging technique that allows veterinarians to examine your pet’s internal anatomy. Our veterinarians have specialized training and are certified to provide ultrasonography services. What’s more, our state-of-the-art mobile ultrasound equipment means we can perform this exam in the comfort of your home.
These services are performed by our doctors at partner hospitals. We will pick up your pet and bring her or him back to you!
Our veterinarians are skilled in routine and elective surgeries such as spays, neuters, laceration repairs, mass removals, dental procedures, and minor ocular surgeries, among others.
Dental disease among pets is more common than you may think. In fact, poor dental hygiene is often linked to more serious health conditions. Regular, preventative dental cleaning is key to a better, healthier life.
Your pet’s spay or neuter may be the first time she or he needs to go under anesthesia. Not to worry- we will be with you and your pet every step of the way. From consultation to procedure to post-surgery recovery, your BetterVet doctor will take care of you and your pet.
X-Rays are an invaluable complement to your pet’s physical examination. Your BetterVet veterinarian will let you know when it is appropriate for your pet to be an outpatient at one of our partner hospitals for this procedure.
