We are pleased to now be able to offer House Calls! Call 678-376-0503 to schedule your appointment.

Dr.Coval will be our primary veterinarian seeing House Calls, a veterinary assistant will be with her.

The doctors at Apalachee River Animal Hospital recognizes the need for in-home veterinary care and want to be able to better serve those with that need. Examples are:

  • Senior Citizens and others that may have difficulty driving, or managing pets in the car.
  • Pets that have car/carrier/veterinary hospital anxiety
  • Pets that have motion sickness
  • Arthritic or Giant Breed dogs that have difficulty getting in and out of vehicles
  • People with multiple pets that prefer to "get 'er done" all at once.
  • Busy people that simply need to save time

Here are answers to some FAQ's:

  • What areas will you service via house calls? Roughly a 12-15 mile radius, primarily Dacula, Buford, Braselton/Chateau Elan, Deaton Creek Community, and Grayson. Call if you are not sure.
  • How much will it cost? All fees are the same as if you were being seen at our hospital with an added trip fee of $40. 
  • Can I take advantage of the "Free First Visit" Offer? No, this is only available for in hospital visits. 
  • What pets do you see? Dogs and cats. (no pocket pets, reptiles, birds, large animals or exotics)
  • Do you offer in home euthanasia? Yes this is available with our house call service. There is a fee of $175 which includes everything (trip fee, exam, euthanasia, and transport back to our hospital) EXCEPT after care, which is an individual decision (communal or private cremation, burial, etc.) 
  • What if my pet is very aggressive? If your pet is friendly to others at home, and just gets aggressive at the vet a house call may be the perfect solution. If our veterinarian cannot safely handle your pet then they will recommend either a second housecall (with prior calming medication having been given) or an in-office exam with sedation.  
  • Will I still be charged if my pet will not safely allow an exam? Yes, you will be charged the trip fee and a consultation fee. Our veterinarian will spend time consulting with you regarding all concerns you have, review past experiences and history, and make recommendations and a treatment plan as to how to proceed.  We will always strive to be fair and provide you and your pet with the best possible experience and value.
