Your Home Is the Best Environment for Pet Care

1662_topeka_pet_dentistry.jpgAt Home Pet Care, our top priority is giving you easy and comfortable access to veterinary medical services right in the comfort of your own home. We keep your pet healthy without stress or fear or the chore of a car ride. We also promote in home boarding and have recommendations for those needs.

Accurate and Thorough Pet Records

Taking advantage of the benefits of modern technology, Dr. Schmar employs a special veterinary computer program to keep track of your pet’s personal records. The program keeps record of all services, vaccinations and even a picture of your pet. In this way, we’ll have all the vital information necessary to maintain your pet’s health at our fingertips.

These records will travel with you if you require referral for more extensive veterinary care or just need them to show that your pet is "up to date" on their vaccinations thus avoiding extra charges if boarding is needed. The stress relief you feel from not having to remember anything off the top of your head, especially in the stressful situation of needing extensive medical help, will be significant :)

We always send out reminders to our patients and their parents when their next service is due. Plus, we keep your pet’s pictures on invoices and rabies certificates to ensure proper certification every time. No more confusion as to which Rabies tag belongs to which pet :)
