Many seniors take great comfort in their pets. They provide companionship and entertainment. In some cases, they also offer opportunities for exercise and socialization. But, sadly, some seniors feel they must give up their beloved pets because they cannot get them to the vet, groomer, or obtain the necessary supplies. Thankfully, there are mobile pet services and supplies to help! And they’re not just for seniors – busy homeowners with pet families can take advantage of them too!
A typical trip to the groomer involves convincing your pet to get in the car or carrier, driving to the groomer, and leaving your pet there to get shampooed and clipped. Some pet owners may try to do the grooming themselves. Depending on the pet’s temperament, this may be a sure route to a wet home and an angry pet. Instead, mobile groomers come to your home with the necessary supplies. They shampoo and clip your four-legged friend in the comfort of their own home, meaning there’s less stress for everyone involved. Looking for groomers who are NDGAA Registered and/or Certified– this site has them listed.
Mobile Vets and Pet Health
Back when communities were smaller and close-knit, doctors made house calls. Some vets still do if you request it and a lot are starting to offer this service to more areas. Larger communities also have mobile vets that come to your door. This not only saves you the hassle of getting your pet to the vet, but it’s also less stressful for them. Try this House Call Veterinary directory to see if there’s one near you. Mobile vet clinics are held several times a year to help owners keep their pet’s vaccinations up-to-date while also saving substantial money and while they don’t come to your home, they do make life for you and your pet a little easier.
