Outpatient x-rays

Although we do not yet have an xray unit in our new facility, we are fortunate enough to have a built a partnership with both Westbury Animal Hospital and Sunset Boulevard Animal Hospital  in order to facilitate outpatient xrays  (for stable pets and with prior approval). Xrays are interpreted by Dr. Baxter and can be sent to a veterinary radiologist for a formal report. Xrays are typically indicated for evaluation of the lungs and bony structures.

​Medication

Hampshire Mobile Vet maintains a complete pharmacy for your pet’s needs both in our mobile van and at the clinic. We price competitively with online pharmacies and local vets.  For refill orders, medications can be picked up at our office, mailed to you, or delivered right to your doorstep via courier.

  • Preventative medications (heartworm, flea, intestinal parasites)
  • Pharmaceuticals
  • Prescription diets
  • Natural medicine/holistic remedies: Dr. Baxter is able to offer research-grade nutraceuticals not available to the general public.

​Emergencies

Many minor emergencies can be handled in-home. In the event of an emergency, please contact us immediately by phone so that we may suggest the appropriate course.
