We Make Veterinary House Calls
One of the dilemmas of being a caring pet owner has always been the stress and potential trauma of getting your beloved pet to see the veterinarian. It’s sometimes hard to know if the process was harder on the pet or the pet owner.
That’s why the veterinarians at True Companions VetVan of Minneapolis, St. Paul, and Cottage Grove, are happy to come to you. Your family and pet remain secure in familiar surroundings as we provide annual wellness exams, administer vaccinations, address illness or injury, run any necessary tests, and bring quality veterinary care to your pet.
Putting the “Call” In “House Calls”
Thanks to modern audio-visual technology and some of the logistical challenges of our times, we’re now offering veterinary telemedicine as a compassionate but effective option in many circumstances. Once we have an established relationship with you and your pet, many needs that would otherwise require face-to-face time with a veterinarian can be handled using your cell phone, tablet, or another connected device.
Dr. Raeyna Modrow-Longtin and her staff have always prioritized communication with owners and families as an essential part of any examination or treatment, and now we can talk you through an effective visual exam as well. If a face-to-face visit or more involved pet medical services are determined to be necessary, we'll help you arrange it during our telemedicine conferencing. Much of the time, however, normal “visits” and discussions can be handled effectively without ever leaving your home or, in this case, opening your front door.
Please note that while telemedicine may in some emergency situations be used to advise pet owners without a pre-existing relationship, it is best used as a tool serving the larger, ongoing collaboration between your family and your veterinarian. True Companions VetVan isn’t looking to treat your animals for you, but to care for them with you. Effective telemedicine is part of that relationship, not a replacement for it.
Personalized Veterinary Care In Any Format
We live in challenging times, and while your pets may not experience or express stress in the same way as humans, they are perceptive and caring creatures. Let’s work together to keep them healthy and happy so that they can love and care for you in return.
