In-Home Senior/Geriatric Pet Exam--$105
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.
In-Home Hospice and Palliative Care Consultation--$105
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--$105
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.

What to expect:
Dr. Rand understands how difficult it can be to say goodbye to a beloved family member. Every step of the visit is planned to make your family and your pet as comfortable as possible.
Your family gathers around your pet wherever he or she is most comfortable. A sedative/pain medication is given to make your pet comfortable. Your pet is never separated from you during the process. The visit includes a clay paw impression and a fur clipping as desired. Dr. Rand can give advice regarding aftercare. Dignified cremation is performed through Pet Legacies in Bryan (see below).
Urgent or emergency after hours appointments are based on availability for an additional $100.
Visits to families located outside of the Bryan/College Station area are assessed on a case-by-case basis. Please call for more information.
For families who do not wish to receive their pet's ashes, communal cremation is offered for a fee of $50. Your pet's ashes will be buried on private property.
Respectful, individual cremation and pet memorialization are provided by Live Oak Pet Services. Please visit their website HERE.
