Dr. Lynn Schabacker
Total Pet Wellness is a veterinary housecall service dedicated to the health and wellbeing of our animal companions. Dr. Lynn believes that patients can benefit from an integrated approach of conventional medical procedures such as vaccinations, bloodwork, and treatment of minor illness, combined with alternative therapies such as acupuncture, frequency specific laser (LLLT), and herbal medication.
Not all patients need conventional therapies, and not all patients need acupuncture. We can discuss the needs of your pet at the time we set up your appointment to determine what approach is needed for the optimum health of your pet.
Many animals benefit from house call veterinary appointments by reduced stress, decreased likelihood of exposure to other sick pets. Being able to observe them in their own environment is an important part of a more holistic approach which is a philosophy of treating the "whole" patient.
There are situations in which having a veterinarian come to your house to treat your pet has major advantages.
- Difficulty transporting or scheduling
- Geriatric patients
- Young puppies
In some cases a housecall may not be the best option. Patients that have marked territorial aggression or need a more extensive workup than can be provided by a home visit.
Also providing "Life Quality" counselling and In-Home sedation Euthanasia for small animal patients.
