Vet Makes House Calls

Posted: Updated:

Having a sick pet is a difficult situation for any family, but there's a way to get help that most of us wouldn't even think about.

There's a veterinarian who comes right to your front door.

Dr. Sarah Gordon runs the For The Animals Veterinary Clinic, out of Bartlesville.

But she covers most of Northeastern Oklahoma with her elaborate mobile facilities.

She says there are quite few vets in Bartlesville, so she wanted to offer a new service for pet owners.

Gordon will tell you, that traveling to homes can give her a better understanding of the relationship between owners and their animals.

Her van is set up with an exam room, sinks, medicines and equipment in the front.

While the back is used for the operating room.

The vehicle has everything but an x-ray machine and facilities to do blood work.

She says she can perform about 90% of veterinary procedures on four wheels, but she will go into the owner's home if that's better for the animal.

Dr. Gordon is a big supporter of animal rescue efforts, so she uses her truck to spay and neuter animals before they're adopted.

She's says it's a way to give back to the community and to keep her oath of helping animals in need.

She can be reached at 918-815-9122.
