Dr. Rand makes house calls in Bryan and College Station. Visits to families located outside of the Bryan/College Station area can be assessed on a case-by-case basis. Please call for more information.
All services are provided in the comfort of your home and will include a house call.
In-Home Senior/Geriatric Pet Exam--$50
Your senior pet is examined from nose to tail in the comfort of home. Special attention is paid to common challenges of older cats and dogs, such as pain and anxiety. An in-home consultation is less stressful for our elderly companions, and it gives Dr. Rand the opportunity to observe them in their home environment.
Quality of Life Evaluation--$75
If your pet has reached old age or been diagnosed with a terminal disease, it can be difficult to know if and when you should consider euthanasia. Every pet is different. Dr. Rand can evaluate your pet, answer any questions you may have about his or her condition to help guide you.
Hospice and Palliative Care Consultation--$95
A 1.5 to 2-hour consultation directed at meeting the needs of pets with chronic or life-limiting illnesses. Medical focus is directed towards maximizing comfort and maintaining quality of life rather than curing illness.
Low-Stress, In-Home Wellness Exam--$55
Dr. Rand uses Fear Free techniques to make you and your pet as comfortable as possible during the visit. An in-home visit is great for pets who are nervous about traveling or feel anxious at the vet clinic. It is also a great idea for new puppies and kittens.
