Bringing Compassionate Care

House Calls Veterinary Service is a full service veterinary practice that brings the quality, experienced, compassionate veterinary care medical team to your home. House Calls has been in business since June 1, 1995 to offer a low stress alternative to clinic visits for dogs, cats, and their people. In 2020, after 25 years with Dr. Riedl, the business transferred to Dr. Sanjay Jain. Dr. Jain, Dr. Gasper, Todd and Katie (Vet Assistants) are continuing on for each visit.

Most procedures that are typically done as an out-patient office visit in a clinic can be done during a house call. House Calls also uses Apple Valley Veterinary Clinic for surgery and dentistry so we can offer the full spectrum of services that a traditional clinic offers. In 2020, Dr. Jain added mobile radiography to decrease the need to schedule this important diagnostic tool at a separate time and with our partnership with Apple Valley Veterinary Clinic’s facility, we can now perform most laboratory services with same day response time.

Todd

Veterinary Assistant

Todd became interested in the field of Veterinary Technology due to his many years rescuing retired racing greyhounds. Todd has been active in greyhound rescue for the past 12 years and has fostered 54 greyhounds through his home.

He lives with his girlfriend, Asha, and his retired greyhound, Allin. When he is not at work or studying, he can be found on a river fly fishing. Todd is also an avid reader.

Katie

Katie

Veterinary Assistant

Katie was born in Neenah, Wi and after High School graduation, she decided to attend the local college. After a year, college was not the right fit for Katie but she knew she loved people so she went into the medical field taking care of mentally disabled adults. She decided to moved closer to her work in Kaukauna, and started a part time job at a bar. Again, people always being the focus of what she loved at work, she began full time bar tending but the night life was getting old, and she was looking for something more stable. She decided to give it a try at Apple Valley Veterinary Clinic and has not looked back! She has always loved animals but appreciates the relationships between people and their furry family members. Katie enjoys being able to assist people on the phone, and in-person, to be able to help them best take care of their animal. It is exceptional to be appreciated and enjoy coming to work every day.

Outside of work Katie enjoys camping, cheering on any local sports team, and spending time with her family that lives near by. She loves being with friends and also binge watching The Office. Katie is a lover of all animals but currently has two cats, Charlie and Albert, as well as a betta fish named Chuck. She can’t wait to see where life will take her while working at Apple Valley Vet!

Slide Advantages House calls are less stressful for your pet. Your pet will be more relaxed at home in its familiar environment. A house call avoids the stress of a car ride; this is especially important for many cats. A house call also eliminates the stress associated with sitting in a clinic waiting room with other dogs and cats. Seeing your pet in his/her home environment can sometimes aid in making a diagnosis. This is especially true for behavior related problems. Dr. Jain will get to know your pets better seeing them at home.

House calls save time by eliminating the travel and waiting room time. We have found house calls to be especially convenient for multiple pet households and owners with small children may find it easier to schedule a veterinary visit at home. Situations may arise when it is difficult or impossible to get your pet to a veterinary clinic.

FAQs

It should be noted that the convenience of House Call visits will increase costs above a traditional clinic’s charges due to the limited number of appointments that can be seen during the day. Therefore, this type of service is not for everyone and since we are a full service clinic, we must give priority to non-euthanasia patients which we have seen before.
