Dr. Flo Mitchell, DVM, has served the greater Washington D.C., Northern Virginia, and Southern Maryland areas for more than 25 years. She is an active member of the American Association of Housecall Veterinarians.

Having Dr. Mitchell come to your home to treat your pets instead of taking your pets to the veterinarian's office is advantageous to both you and your pets.

  • Patient comfort
    Many pets experience a great deal of stress traveling to see the veterinarian. Pets may express their displeasure in many ways, including urinating in the car, vomiting, becoming anxious or aggressive, or hiding either prior to or after the trip. When the vet sees your pet in the familiar surroundings of its normal household environment, it is less stressful for everyone involved.

  • Patient health
    Viruses, bacteria, and parasites can sometimes survive in veterinary hospital waiting rooms. With a housecall veterinarian, you don't have to worry about your pet picking up something from the animal who was sitting in the waiting room just before you. Also, you don't have to worry about mediating a fight between your pet and other animals in the waiting room with you.

  • Convenience
    Since the veterinarian comes to you, you don't have to load your pets into your car and drive them to the clinic. You don't have to wait in an uncomfortable waiting room. You don't have to find creative ways to entertain your children in the doctor's office, or try to block out the screams of the children sitting next to you in the waiting room. You simply relax in your home and go about your normal routine until the vet arrives.
