I try to be a pretty thrifty person always looking for the best deal. Using an at-home vet for me was not necessarily a financially smart move, but it was a physical and emotional smart move for me.
I recently got a new dog who is 7 her name is Jasmin.
I have fibromyalgia, so everything hurts. I decided to use an at-home vet which allows me to avoid stressing my body. If I worked, I think I would use an at-home vet too. It is so much less stress for the animals and humans!
I ended up using Dr. Lisa Peterson because I didn’t like the previous at-home vet. Dr. Lisa talks to me her client to make sure the I understand, and I am making the best decision for my pets. She will educate me and give me her opinion. She is extremely compassionate and is great at talking or texting on the phone. I prefer texting, but sometimes I do need to talk to her.
All of my animals loved her because she brought them treats!
Her website is right below
She also works hours at Southwick VCA on Friday.
Putting Baxter was the first dog I ever had to let go. She talked to me for days because I would keep changing my mind. Then when I made it up, she scheduled it quick. I want to say the next day. She came to my home and put soothing music on. She talked me through the process telling me when she was going to put him down. She let me have as much time with them as possible. She took Baxter with her and brought me back his ashes with a paw imprint.
I will continue to use Dr. Lisa whether it be in my home or at Southwick VCA:)
