"Half the calls I've had have been for routine vaccines and exams. The other half have been for end of life care or euthanasia. It's a hard time, but I feel it's a part of my job and a service that I offer that makes it an easier experience for [both] the owner and the pet," she said.
Last week was Weston's first round of house calls.
"It's been good," Weston said. "Everyone has been so supportive, and every day there are new experiences to learn from."
Weston treats just cats and dogs. And she will not perform X-rays or surgery or administer anesthesia during a house call visit, although she can do so at the Hampden Veterinary Clinic.
"There are scenarios where house calls are not recommended," she said.
