Relax. Here Are Answers To Your Questions

Complete veterinary care at your home. Check-ups and preventive care, medicine, surgery, dentistry and even alternative therapies. It's not a concept all people know about. So, Mid-State Mobile Veterinary Clinic has compiled a list of the questions new clients ask us a lot—so that they're handy and available without you having to phone us or email.

However—if you have an urgent issue, please call us at (978) 660-2407—don't email. We do our best to respond to electronic communications daily, but this is not guaranteed. If you have an emergency or something urgent to discuss, please call or leave a voicemail and we will get back to you much more quickly at (978) 660-2407!

We currently cover 10 cities and towns: Ashburnham, Fitchburg, Gardner, Lancaster, Leominster, Lunenburg, Princeton, Sterling, Templeton & Westminster. If your town is not listed, it's because it is outside of our service area.

In order to provide the highest quality of service in the most timely manner, we must strictly adhere to our list of service towns and cities. Even if your home is just over the border of a town we service, we are unable to take you on as a new client. Please Google "mobile veterinarian near me" to find someone who can help you in your city or town.

Absolutely! We'll need to do this over the phone since there are questions we'll need to ask you in order to provide an accurate quote. Prices vary depending upon your location, breed and age of your cat/dog and lifestyle. (Lifestyle can affect which vaccines, heartworm prevention, etc... that we would recommend.) Please call us at (978) 660-2407 and we will be happy to discuss our prices and policies.

We do not currently receive any grants that would allow us to provide free services to qualified low income families, so we apologize, but we are not able to provide low-cost spay & neutering services at this time.

As a mobile veterinary hospital it's necessary for us to reserve appointment slots for medical care only. Unless your pet requires anesthesia for grooming procedures, we suggest that you contact a mobile groomer by Googling "mobile pet groomer near me".

It depends. We find that many animals (especially cats) do feel more comfortable and safe in their own surroundings. However, in some cases, cats and dogs feel more threatened when approached in their home environment and actually prefer to come outside into our mobile clinic. We can talk with you when we arrive and decide together what seems best in each situation.

We also have many techniques to reduce the stress your pet may feel with veterinary handling – our practice is enrolled in Fear Free Certification for this very reason! Learn more about this compassionate and unique program in which we participate.
