Employing the services of a mobile veterinarian can be the easiest way for owners to provide health care to cats. "The owner can be at home doing other things, rather than waiting in an office," said Jessica A. Rankin, DVM, of the Caring For Cats Housecall Service in Los Angeles. The owner doesn't have to struggle to put the cat in a box, listen to it cry all the way to the hospital or expose the cat to upper respiratory viruses and other contagious diseases. "The veterinarian can also spend more time with the owner and the pet," Rankin said. "It is a much more personalized service."

Thanks for the great article about the fascinating idea that helps a lot of cats!
I only wish there was information about how to find local mobile vets- is there or will there be a follow up article with useful websites?

My cat HATES car rides-- cries, panics, etc. He's fine once we get in the examination room, but the trip is always a trial for all of us. I definitely think I need to look into this!

A mobile vet is a great idea, but does it cost a lot more?
