Is PriVET Pet Care a 911 VETS® Company just like 911 for people?
Yes and no. 911 for human beings is a dedicated, national emergency system funded by your phone tax and other government sources. Our Provider veterinarians and veterinary technicians respond to medical emergencies for animals. The similarities and differences are outlined below.

I live in the Greater LA Area. How soon can you be here in an emergency?
While we hope to quickly respond to daytime pet emergencies — upon availability — it is not yet at full operational coverage at this time. Expanding our team of veterinary care providers and expanding hours coverage area is an ongoing mission. Please remember if you are able to carefully transport the pet yourself to the nearest open veterinary facility it will increase the chance of life-saving care. If you are not able to safely transport the pet for any reason we will do our best to help you. Our response time when an emergency service call is initiated has shown to be somewhere between 2 and 40 minutes depending where we are and you are located.
Does PriVET Pet Care a 911 VETS® Company only handle emergencies?
No. Emergency calls are only about 5-10 percent of our business. That is why the full name PriVET Pet Care 911 VETS is more accurate. We offer routine home veterinary care especially for those who do not have access any other way. Certain pets and pet situations can ONLY be managed on-site, for example, a trapped pet requiring sedation, or pets who cause damage to themselves or people when attempting transport.
I thought all house call vets could do is home euthanasia. Is that what you do?
Unlike many house call services whose bulk of their service is home euthanasia due to the small time and equipment requirement, PriVET Pet Care 911 VETS is concerned with medical and surgical care to increase health and longevity. We understand the inevitability of death and desire to end the suffering when there is no other reasonable option. While we do offer gentle, respectful, and painless euthanasia, this is only one important part of what we offer. The vast majority of what we provide is the preventative, medical, and surgical care of our Guardians’ pets.
Who are the Providers?
PriVET Pet Care 911 VETS uses consistent terminology to identify people involved in pet care. Dispatch refers to personnel who receive calls then locate and make service call appointments for our Providers. The Providers are either veterinarians or veterinary technicians who are pre-screened, interviewed, licensed, insured, and well-trained for the home pet medical or transport services they provide. These people are our dedicated employees or part-time contractors. They must all consistently maintain our highest standards.
Where is your hospital?
We have no physical clinic or hospital. We can handle 90% of what ails your pet right in the comfort of home. However, when needed, we have a cooperative arrangement with trusted, local hospitals to handle surgery, dentistry and radiographs. We offer Pet Concierge service where your pet is safely and comfortably transported to and from the clinic. Thus we have the ability to evaluate and treat your pet in your home and, if necessary, transport to either our partner clinic or to any emergency facility to handle critical cases as well.
What can your techs do?
Our technicians can medicate and treat your pet the way the veterinarian intended. Often a busy practice omits the actual demonstration of administering medication. You receive the medication and the staff assumes you can give it. Our skilled technicians can actually show you how to effectively give the medication or perform the duty efficiently on the schedule prescribed by your vet. Our technicians can collect and process diagnostic samples as prescribed by either your clinic veterinarian or by our veterinarians. Common sample collections are performed safely and with kindness. These include blood glucose monitoring for up to 6 hours for diabetic evaluation. Techs can draw timed samples or as ordered with a minimum of stress. Our technician Provider aids the mobile veterinarian Provider with medical assistance, sample collection, surgical assistance, and transport services. Our technicians can safely transport your pet to and from almost anywhere. We typically transport pets between home and hospital, between hospitals and to airports, groomers, or anywhere else. The tech can manage critical cases requiring oxygen or any other supportive care.
What form of payments do you accept?
Most any form of credit card or debit card is the preferred payment. In certain circumstances, personal check or cash payment may be accepted but requires prior arrangement. We have easy, no-interest financing through Care Credit if you qualify. All Service Calls must be pre-paid for at least the fee for the house call visit. All the remainder of services and items supplied must be paid for upon completion of the Service Call.
Do you take pet insurance?
The way pet insurance currently works is that services are payable at the time they are rendered. Pet insurance claim forms must be provided to the doctor to fill out, or in some cases obtained online by PriVET Dispatch. The forms will be processed including review by Admin and the Veterinarian Provider as well as any required signature. The forms will be returned to you in a timely manner and may be delayed depending on the circumstances. There are many different pet insurance companies with differing claims processes that require administrative clarification. Be assured we are working as quickly as possible to process your claim. We will be tabulating data and will publicly post the ease and speed of particular insurance companies.
