A Bit About Us

Established in 2016, our vision is to offer premium vet care in the home at an affordable price.
The VetCare@Home business is currently in partnership with Peak Pharmacy.
Peak Pharmacy and VetCare@Home are fully committed to providing an excellent quality healthcare service to all their customers and pets.

Pets play a key role in the home. They’re part of the family.

We’ve found lots of benefits of having your pet seen in the comfort of their own home, including:

  • It’s less stressful for your pet. No trembling dogs in the waiting room, cats being forced into baskets or rabbits terrified by the animals around them.
  • Convenient for yourself – you don’t have to go looking for a parking space.
  • Great if you have no access to transport, or if getting out and about isn’t too easy.
  • No long waits for you in the waiting room.

The team at VetCare@Home are fully committed to providing an excellent quality healthcare service to all our fluffy customers. Our pets play a key role in the home - being a valued member of the family, which is why we treat them as part of the family when we carry out our services.

Our team is made up of colourful, vibrant, compassionate, caring, friendly and personal people - meaning you’ll fit in straight away. We have excellent links with local practices for cases not suitable to be seen in a home environment.

This is a very exciting and unique job opportunity in a rapidly growing, innovative, family-friendly business. We look forward to hearing from you and welcoming our new member on board as part of our friendly team.

    John provided a service second to none, he did Poppy proud and made her passing so very easy. Having been let down at our own vet, John was able to get the home visit sorted, many, many thanks.

    First class service, visited within the hour and treated my new puppy. Only problem is now she is running around doing what puppies should do. I wished I had asked about the off switch is!

    We would highly recommend vet care at home. Due to covid 19 and the lockdown restrictions we weren’t able to use our regular vet for home visits. Communication was excellent and John was always very prompt in responding to calls and emails. I’m so glad they were recommended to us as they were amazing.

    Competent & friendly vet, professional, competitively priced & convenient for myself. I can highly recommend, especially if you don’t have transport or your pet doesn’t like the usual veterinary setting. 5 star! ⭐️

    A very professional and friendly service, putting myself and my multi-cat household at ease. Having a house visit for 5 cats is stress free, time and energy saving for the cats and me... I am so glad I found John Rosie!
