We’ve provided answers to a few of the most common ones below, but if you have any more, please don’t hesitate to write, call or tweet!
We provide a wide range of non-emergency services in your home. While the nature of a house-call practice does limit what we can do, we make every effort to provide our clients and patients with full service. With the help of a veterinary assistant, we are able to offer most feline health services in your home, including annual physical exams, vaccinations, fluid treatments, and blood tests. View the full list of Our Services for complete details.
If there is a need for it, we work cooperatively with a full-service Cat Hospital in Calgary and also with several area specialists such as: Internists, Cardiologists, Oncologists, Surgeons, Dentists, Ophthalmologists, and Emergency Hospitals to provide complete care for our patients.
We practice within the province of Alberta, and provide veterinary services within the Calgary area. We can travel to Okotoks , Airdrie, Dewinton, Bearspaw, Cochrane, Chestemere or even outside of this area, if there is a need for it. A special Traveling fee may apply to these distant localities.
There will be times when in-home care isn’t possible. For services like surgeries, dental work, x-rays, and some emergency situations, I partner with another local veterinary hospital , and have full privileges to their equipment and expert staff.
In the event of an emergency, we can refer you to one of the emergency hospitals in Calgary depending on which part of the city you live. If you require, we can follow up your cat’s medical condition and consult the emergency doctors while your pet is at the emergency hospital.
Of course. We are happy to refill prescriptions for our patients. There are a number of ways to deal with these requests, and can be discussed on a case-by-case basis. We also can discuss any questions you may have about why they are being prescribed for your pet.
Please see our Appointment Checklist to make the visit go as smooth as possible for you and your cat.

Our fees are comparable to other standard veterinary practices. The only difference is, we charge a House-Call fee: this is our travel fee to get to your home. With every visit, we charge an Examination fee: which applies to each cat seen, and to set up a record for each new patient. Please call for our complete fee schedule and estimates. We make every effort to make sure all fees are fair and reasonable, and you are encouraged to discuss charges before services are rendered.
Please note: CatVetathome charges a House Call and Consultation fee each time we travel to you.
These fees cover your doctor’s time spent reviewing and updating your pet’s medical records and history; documenting any current problems; consultation with other professionals or reviewing research and written information when appropriate; directing support staff in the care of your pet, as well as other administration expenses. Follow-up rechecks are usually not included in the originating office/exam/consultation fee.
It meant a lot that we were able to be at home with Squeek and that we didn’t have to put her through another traumatic clinic trip and cause her further distress. We’re also very grateful that we were able to go through the process with you as we value your opinion and we trust you.
This man is the CAT WHISPERER! If you can’t figure out what is wrong with your cat, and other vets have failed, Dr. P will figure it out.
