Throughout this global pandemic, House Call Vet RVA has continued to provide an essential service for pets & pet parents requesting in-home veterinary care. In order to continue to do so, we have adopted the following policies and protocols.

  • As of 11/19/2020, ALL communication must be done through our WEBSITE. Please visit our commonly used forms page to fill out and submit the appropriate form.
  • If you are unsure of which form to choose, please visit our contact page to submit your request or question.
  • Appointment requests, questions, and all other communications will not be answered through email or phone calls.
  • However, requests submitted through the website will be answered in a timely manner. This is a CRITICAL and necessary change in order for us to continue to provide in-home veterinary care.

We understand this is a difficult time for everyone and appreciate your understanding,

Kaitlyn Hemsley, DVM
House Call Vet RVA, PLLC

House Call Vet RVA is an ambulatory facility and does not provide emergency veterinary care, nor is veterinary care offered outside of a scheduled appointment time.

In-Home End-of-Life Care for Your Pet

We serve the pets of Richmond, VA, and beyond.

Compassionate End-Of-Life Veterinary Care

Our pets love us unconditionally, bring laughter and joy into our lives, and become part of our families. Our final gift to them is to provide a stress-free, peaceful goodbye, all within the comfort of your own home. My purpose and sincerest intent are to provide in-home pet euthanasia service, support, and guidance for you, your family, and your pet.

– Kaitlyn Hemsley, DVM


We remove the stress from veterinary care by bringing it to the place your pet loves most—home.


Dr. Hemsley is here to build a long-lasting relationship with your family and your pet.

End-of-Life Care

When it’s time to say goodbye, we’ll be there to help you through this difficult time.

You have questions; we have answers.

Why choose in-home euthanasia?
  • Allows friends and family to be present
  • Eliminates the need to transport your pet, which can be difficult and/or distressful
  • Grieving in private
  • Enables you to set an atmosphere (candles, music, pictures, etc.) that is right for you and your family
  • Ability to choose location (favorite bed, outdoors, etc)
  • Home burial convenience
  • Privacy afterwards
  • Other pets can be present, if desired
What is your service area?

Service areas include Richmond & parts of Midlothian, Henrico, Hanover, Chesterfield, and Goochland. Please contact us if you would like an estimate for the House Call/Travel Fee.
