Welcome to Small Animal Housecalls

Your Housecall Veterinarian Serving Chandler, Gilbert, Mesa, Ahwatukee, Tempe, San Tan Valley, Apache Junction and Queen Creek

Call us at 602-931-5869

If you live in the Gilbert, Chandler, Mesa or the surrounding area in AZ, then you have picked the perfect site to find a housecall veterinarian. Dr. Melanie Lowrance is a licensed veterinarian, treating all sized dogs and cats. Your pet's health and well being is very important to us and we will take every step to give your pet the best possible care.

Small Animal Housecalls offers a unique service to provide veterinary care in the comfort of your home.  Many of the services provided in a full service hospital can be accomplished in your home, such as annual exams, ill exams, blood tests, vaccinations, health certificates, hospice care and when needed compassionate in-home euthanasia and cremation.  Housecalls are convenient for the elderly and the disabled, but busy professionals and families also find that our services save them valuable time, especially when they have multiple pets.  Pets also appreciate the housecall veterinarian.  Cats that don't like car rides or get scared in a veterinary hospital and dogs that can't get into the car or get car sickness are all easier to treat in their own homes.   Dr. Melanie Lowrance is experienced in all types of conditions and treatments. Beyond first rate pet care, we make our care comfortable, compassionate, professional and in a very calm environment so your pet can relax in their favorite place, their home.  

We have a number of resources for you to learn about how to take better care of your pets. Browse around and look at our articles and pet videos. The best veterinary care for animals is ongoing nutrition and problem prevention. If you want to ask a question call 602-931-5869  or send us an email to request an appointment. You can also subscribe to our newsletter which is created especially for Arizona pet owners. In between your veterinary visits, your pet will benefit from you reading these free informative articles.

At Small Animal Housecalls, we treat your pets like the valued family members they are.

Dr. Melanie is awesome! She comes to see our dogs in our home which means we avoid the extra stress of a car packed with 6 pup dogs.
