Why choose a house call practice?
A house call veterinary service might be right for you if you are looking for more personalized veterinary care. Seeing pets in their own environment is beneficial because it allows the true spirit of the animal to shine in the context of his or her own space. At home we can do things like evaluate the food by going over ingredients listed on a bag or can, play with toys and treats, understand the pet’s routine and personality, observe interactions between pets, and meet all family members. Rather than getting simply a brief physical snapshot of the pet, we look at the whole picture together during longer appointment times without interruption.
Dr. Cass embraces a wellness philosophy that takes the whole animal and environment into account. This is different from a traditional Western medicine philosophy in which we wait for disease to happen, then treat it. Instead- she encourages clients to actively promote well-being using a thorough assessment of physical and environmental factors. This allows the clients to express their values and goals for their four-legged family members. These beliefs are unique to each family. An animal is so much more than just a heart, a liver, or a set of hips.
When Dr. Lisa visits, our dog Jude is delighted to see her friend Dr. Lisa she first met when she was a nine-week old pup weighing 12 pounds (Jude is now an adult who weighs 65.) Dr. Lisa speaks both English and Dog quite fluently, using vocal cords and loving hands, the latter of which occasionally dispense treats and vaccines simultaneously. Wyncia and I have become quite fond of Dr. Lisa primarily because she’s a wonderful human being. In addition to being a pal, we are delighted that she’s also an excellent vet who makes house calls and heals the sick. Jude shares our view without reservations!
