Mobile vet a convenient alternative

A trip to the vet was not always a big deal. First there was one cat. I threw a few treats in his carrier, he walked in and I plopped the whole thing in the car. No big deal. Fast forward fifteen years and there are three cats, two dogs and two small children. Getting to the vet is now a big deal, especially for my old and crotchety kitties.

The dogs and children are happy to hop in the car and go for a ride. But getting three cats in three carriers and managing small kids is just not happening. Which is why I decided to give the Mobile Veterinary Hospital of Tulsa a try.

And barring any major medical issue, I will probably never take my cats to the vet again. Dr. Kristie Plunkett and her assistant Holly Cearley were professional, quick and amazing with both my animals and kids.

Much like having other services done in the home, I was given a window of time for our appointment. I received a call about 30 minutes before their arrival and had time to do a headcount of my cats and get them in a secure room without much to hide under.

When they arrived, they brought in the necessary equipment and got to work examining my three cats and administering vaccines while my kids watched and asked a lot of questions. Two of my three cats were much more relaxed for the process, one is just skittish no matter what.

The process was simple and painless. The bill did not look much different than what I would normally pay for exams and shots. There is a trip charge, but only for the first animal, so make sure to have all of your pets seen at the same time.

For anyone who may have trouble getting their animals to the vet for any reason, moms with young children, people who have trouble getting around or those with pets who are averse to a trip to the vet, this is another option to make that necessary yearly visit a little easier.

Thank you so much for sharing pictures of your pets with me! I was completely blown away to receive almost 250 photos between email and Facebook!

When I asked people to send me photos of their beloved pets in honor of my little Boston, Yoda, who recently passed, I hoped to reach 100 pictures. The plan was to donate $1 to Tulsa Animal Welfare for each photo received and my goal was to send a $100 check. I will instead be sending TAW a $250 check. Thank you Tulsa pet lovers for helping me honor my little buddy and for helping other animals who haven’t found their forever home yet.

There were pictures of big dogs and little dogs, cats of every color, a couple of bunnies, some feathered friends and even a snake! Many were from Tulsa Animal Welfare or another local rescue shelter. Some have already passed on and some are still here with us. And all of them are very clearly loved! Be sure to check out all of the amazing pet photos in the gallery here.

IMG_8092This also seems like a great time to announce the newest addition to our family, Miss Penny Lane. Our family is still very much mourning the loss of Yoda, but with so many animals in shelters and rescues and with the available space in our home, we knew this was the right decision. And when Spock met Penny Lane, we knew it was meant to be. They have become fast friends who have so much in common: snuggling, playing ball, stealing snacks from the human kids and chasing cats.

We have affectionately nicknamed her Grumpy Girl, because, well she looks a little grumpy most of the time. But we have managed to catch a few smiles, like in this picture.

Thank you again for your support and give all of your furbabies a hug from me!
