Home Visits for Dogs

Pilgrims Veterinary Home Visit

Home visits ensure your dog always has access to expert veterinary treatment.

We believe that all pets should have access to expert and compassionate care from qualified veterinary surgeons and sometimes, a home visit may be better suited to your dog:

  • If your dog has been diagnosed with a chronic condition that affects their lifestyle, it’s often better to assess their quality of life and how they are managing in their home environment, eg arthritis, cognitive dysfunction or during palliative care.
  • If your dog needs an annual health check but gets very nervous at the vets.
  • If you have difficulty driving or lifting your dog into the car.
  • If the time has come to say goodbye, we would far rather you and your dog were comfortable in your home.

The ideal place to treat your pet will always be at one of our veterinary practices in the New Forest where we have state-of-the-art diagnostic aids and facilities, however, we understand that sometimes for the benefit of your dog’s wellbeing, a home visit may be more appropriate.

Vet home visits for your dog

We can offer vet home visits between 9am and 6pm Monday to Friday, costing £30 on top of the normal consultation and treatment fees.

Simply contact our team who will be happy to arrange a home visit for your pet. Please be aware that we may not be able to come out to you immediately, however, we will endeavour to provide you with a time later that day.

We prefer not to carry out home visits at night – in the emergency setting it is always preferable to come to the practice where we have the equipment & facilities we need to provide the best emergency pet care.
