Why Xenia chose First Paw
over her regular vet?

“Wasn’t sure what to expect with the mobile vet – but I thought it was worth a
shot. Going to the vet used to be such an ordeal with 2 x adult rottweiler. Dr
Laurence was very thorough with their examinations. He noticed issues my
previous vet hadn’t and was also was able to take some samples of some
suspicious-looking lumps. He followed up to see how the dogs were going,
and called to explain the results a few days later.”

– Xenia Alexander

How it works

Book a Vet Appointment Online

Choose an appointment option from our available services. Don’t forget to select some parasite cover for convenient delivery (found during booking process). There is no Pre-Payment required. Feel free to email us your pet’s previous history if you wish (Preferred regarding any current pet conditions/medications)

Prepare for Your Vet's Visit

A quiet room or confined area outdoors is ideal for examination, for small dogs a table or bench is very helpful. For anxious cats, please confine them to a carrier cage, the bathroom or an enclosed room where they can’t run and hide. Please allow a half hour window for us to arrive in case of potential traffic/parking delays. Oh and don’t forget to let us know if your pet has any behaviour quirks we should know about, for safety sake 🙂

Your First Paw Mobile Vet Visit

The Vet will always call your given contact number upon arrival to have a friendly chat and take your pet’s history. We will then conduct our house-call vet examination from the comfort of your home or workplace and give our expert treatment & advice. Payment is required at the time of the visit and can be made preferably by debit/credit card or phone tapping.

After Our Visit

Receive your receipt and pet’s vaccination certificate by email, any veterinary referrals or pet medication scripts can be organised. Follow ups will be carried out in the subsequent days as indicated, with your pet’s visit history being sent to any regular or referral veterinary clinic if required.
