For a pet emergency please call VETSS:

Veterinary Emergency Treatment Service & Specialty

24 hours/7 days/all year

Due to the traveling nature of house call scheduling, For Paws can not provide emergency medical care.  We are not equipped to handle critical care situations and we could be anywhere in the county when you have an emergency.  Luckily, we have an excellent emergency room for pets in Charlottesville!  VETSS is located near the CHO airport.  For more information visit their website:   VETSS

For Paws Housecalls is in business to bring compassionate, customized veterinary care to you and your pets in your own home.  We are a busy family business and we know there are many busy people who love their pets, but don't love the traffic and the trouble of getting the dog or cat in to see the veterinarian. 

With a house call for your routine veterinary care, you can decrease the stress on your pet and on you!!  Stay home and start dinner, or read your email or take care of your kids or write a letter to a friend while we drive right to you!  Or stay at work for that important meeting, and we can see your pet at your home (with prior arrangements) and call you with a medical report afterwards.

For Paws can offer physical exams, vaccinations, parasite testing and prevention, laboratory diagnostics, diagnosis and monitoring of chronic illness and, when the time comes, end of life care.  All in the comfort of your own home.

Ask your paws what they prefer and give us a call to schedule an appointment!
