More so, due to the recent events in 2020 – many pet owners are cautious of leaving their home to visit a veterinarian. We are here to solve this problem for you as our professional and friendly veterinary specialists come to your door to assist you and your pet!

Who Are We?
The House Call Vet is a comprehensive and modern veterinary practice in Brisbane that combines traditional veterinary clinics with an advanced house call service. With our fleet of house call vehicles and network of veterinary hospitals, we are able to care for pets across Brisbane.
Our custom-designed Mobile Veterinary Units (MVUs) act as our consult rooms, fanning out from our clinic bases each morning to see pets across Brisbane. Our MVUs are equipped with microscopes, scales, diagnostic equipment, and a fully-stocked pharmacy so that most pets can be treated at home. If in-clinic care is needed, we provide complimentary patient transport to and from our surgeries.
Our state of the art veterinary clinics act as our regional ‘hospitals’, providing comprehensive facilities where pets can be taken when they require in-clinic care such as surgeries, x-rays or dental procedures. Our clinics also perform in-clinic consultations every day for our patients who prefer to come to visit us at the clinic!
This model ensures that no matter what level of care your pets needs, and regardless of whether you prefer in-home or in-clinic appointments, we can be there for you and your pet.

If your pet is ill, unwell or injured and in pain, it is likely that it will not behave the way your are used to it behaving. Try to remain calm and provide comfort to your pet. Take note of the following:
- Pets can behave unpredictably when unwell, but especially when they are in pain. Be very cautious when handling your pet. Wrapping them in a blanket can help them feel more comfortable, warm and safe.
- In some cases, it is advisable not to feed your pet when you suspect they are unwell or injured. Contact one of our clinics if you are uncertain.
