Trumann Animal Clinic goes mobile

TRUMANN, AR (KAIT) -

The Trumann Animal Clinic now makes house calls with the Best Friends Vet Mobile.

The clinic has had the vehicle for a little over a year now and it has become very popular among patients.

“It is very uncommon, we bought the practice about a year or year and half ago and since then it has just really taken off,” said Jessica Hagar, veterinarian assistant.

The vet mobile allows veterinary care to take place in your home rather than bringing your pet in each time.

Veterinarians that visit homes will do any normal office services except x-rays or surgeries.

Hagar said the service is good for dogs, cats or any animal that may not like the vet or does not behave well while in the clinic.

"Sometimes they act a lot better at home, also sometimes people cannot get their large animal in a vehicle, it is very difficult for them so they call and make an appointment with us." Hagar said. "They are so excited to see we can come to their homes and do those things."

The cost is the same as a normal vet visit plus a convenience fee.

People can call into the clinic to schedule an appointment.

The clinic does house calls 2 or 3 days during the week.
