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,

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.

APPOINTMENT

Low-Stress, In-Home, Integrative Care

A visit from a veterinarian should be a treat for your pet, not a chore. Dr. Hemsley’s compassion for animals and dedication to improving her patient’s overall well-being provided the foundation for starting her house call practice. A trip to the vet clinic can be very stressful for both you and your pet! In our younger & older patients (or immunocompromised), there is a higher risk for disease transmission at a vet clinic. Additionally, having a veterinarian come to your house can provide valuable information about your pet’s condition based on their environment and/or natural behaviors.
