At Home Vet
Mobile Vet Hawkesbury District Sydney North West
At Home Veterinary Services your local mobile vet in the Hawkesbury district was established in April 2016 by Dr Michelle Harvey, a fully certified and registered vet with the Board of Veterinary Surgeons of NSW. She graduated from the University of Sydney with a first class honours degree in Veterinary Science in 2004, after initially completing a degree in Medical Science. After many years working in private practice and emergency referral clinics in Sydney, Dr Michelle saw a growing need for an "At Home" Veterinary Service. As a busy mum of 3 young boys, she understands how hard it can be to get out the door sometimes let alone with a couple of children and pets in tow!
At Home Veterinary Services was launched with the aim of bringing professional and comprehensive vet care to your pets at home. Dr Michelle has quickly built up a loyal client base throughout the Hills and Hawkesbury districts, and genuinely loves providing individual and personalised care for each and every pet. Dr Michelle has a very calm and gentle manner with animals, and has a way of making pets feel at ease during their treatment. As pet owner, owning a much loved Burmese cat called "Grace", a beautiful Irish Sport Horse mare and a couple of budgerigars im your local mobile vet hawkesbury council area.
When not at work Michelle enjoys a busy home life with her husband and three young sons. She also loves horse riding, in particular dressage, snow-skiing, reading and drinking good coffee!
We offer non-emergency consultations for dogs, cats and horses throughout the Hawkesbury district of north-western Sydney. Our mobile veterinary practice offers a range of in home services including:
Wellness Exams - We want to ensure your pet is happy and healthy, so it's important to get your beloved pet checked by a vet regularly. As with our own health, the key is early detection and prevention. At a minimum, an annual health check is strongly advised.
Heartworm Prevention - Heartworm can be a fatal disease that is transmitted by mosquitoes, therefore all pets are at risk. The yearly Proheart injection is a convenient and easy treatment - you'll never need to worry about missing a monthly heartworm treatment again.
Home Euthanasia - Just as we do, pets become more prone to arthritis as they age. If your pet is reluctant to exercise or play, has difficulty negotiating stairs, appears stiffer than usual, or is sore when touched they may be suffering from arthritis. Our vet can tailor an arthritis management program to help your pet live a more comfortable life.
Pathology - In most instances we can carry out clinical pathology on the spot at your home. This may include blood tests, urine tests, fine needle aspirates or swabs. Pathology can help identify a disease process or monitor the progression of an existing illness. All samples collected are sent to a dedicated veterinary pathology laboratory for analysis.
Vaccinations - Vaccinations prevent serious disease that in some instances are fatal or can cause ongoing complications for your pet. We will visit your home to administer all scheduled vaccinations. This also provides a great opportunity to check on the health of your pet.
Microchipping - Microchipping of cats and dogs is compulsory in NSW. It is a short procedure that involves implanting a microchip (about the size of a grain of rice) under the skin. Microchips are invaluable for helping to reunite lost pets and their owners.
Dental Checks - Dental disease is a growing concern in our pets and can often go unnoticed by owners. We can examine your pets teeth, and if necessary recommend a professional dental clean. We will also provide you with advice on how to best look after your pets teeth.
