The Visiting Veterinarian

Dr. Celeste Conn is a 1984 graduate of the University of Pennsylvania School of Veterinary Medicine. She follows in her father's footsteps by doing both house calls for dogs and cats, and shelter work. House calls allow her to spend the time to know each pet and their owners without the pets being stressed by the other animals, sounds, and smells in veterinary hospitals.

From Our Website

Most of the routine veterinary services your pet needs can be done with a house call visit. Emergency care for serious injuries, or procedures that require anesthesia (such as surgery, dental work, or x-rays) require a trip to a veterinary hospital. No more pests! We develop programs for the specific needs of your pet and your environmental situation. I will review with you the best ways to control external parasites in your house, in your yard and on your pet.

I've been fielding lots of questions lately regarding senior pet care. Clients have concerns that their elder pets are comfortable, that their pet's health is as optimal as possible given his or her life stage and that as owners, they are doing all they can to maximize a cat or dog's longevity. So I thought I'd share some insights about a subject dear to my heart. My dad used to say, "It takes a lean horse for a long race." Don't know if he made that up, but I do know what he meant. To live a long life, shed those extra pounds!

Due to the nature of a house call practice (previously scheduled appointments, traffic, weather, etc.) it can be difficult for us to provide emergency services. Whenever possible, we try to counsel owners on how best to handle a crisis. For immediate emergencies (including trauma, uncontrolled bleeding, or breathing difficulties), we recommend that you contact one of the local 24-hour animal emergency hospitals listed here.
