Frequently Asked Questions
1. What is included in the $120 fee?
This includes travel fee as well as a full physical exam for one pet
2. What if I have additional pets?
We can see multiple pets as long as they have been scheduled as an appointment.
3. What is involved in the non anesthetic dental?
The dental is like a human dental cleaning. It involves a full physical and oral exam by Dr Park. The teeth are then cleaned with ultrasonic cleaner, or hand scaler, polished and rinsed with dental rinse. Recommendations are then given on how to keep teeth healthy.
4. Can my cat have a non anesthetic dental?
Most cats need some sedation to do a dental. It is optional, but we highly recommend doing bloodwork before any type of sedation to assess risks.
5. I just want medicine or simple advice, do I have to do the exam/consult?
Yes, all pets must be seen by the veterinarian dispensing the medications. The doctor cannot give out advice unless the pet has had a full physical examination by Dr Park.
6. I want to euthanize my pet. What is the process?
We know this is a difficult thing to do and we want to make it as easy as possible. When we arrive, we do a physical exam and take history to make sure euthanasia is the right path. Once we are all on board, your pet is heavily sedated so he/she doesn’t feel anything. We then make the final injection which takes about 1-2 minutes to give your pet peace. If you decide to cremate your pet, we offer cremation services as well as urns with home delivery.

However, all treatments and procedures will take place in the mobile unit. Due to space and liability reasons, clients are not allowed in the van.
