I booked Dr. Robin when my 8 year old PBGV, Duncan, started having really bad stomach trouble. He was pooping bloody jello several times a day. I had just moved to San Francisco, and I didn't have a vet. Desperate, I hit the Google search and found Dr. Robin through VetPronto, a service that sends vets to the home. Dr. Robin was absolutely great. After her initial exam, she prescribed him some meds and probiotics that quickly helped with the upset stomach. What I loved most about her was that she took the initiative to check in every couple of days to see how Duncan was progressing. She quickly answered any questions I had about his treatment and progress over email, and provided great tips that helped ease my worry about my dog. When Duncan got constipation, she responded immediately to my email about how I should handle that development. My dog is now on the road to recovery.

My older cat hates the car. And because of this, she makes car trips miserable for everyone involved, including herself. Taking her to the vet is such an unpleasant experience, so I decided to use one of the mobile vet services. Robin and her Vet Tech were right on time, which is a big plus for me. They were very sweet and gentle with my 18 year old cat, even able to get blood and urine samples. My cat can be a bit cranky with vets, but they took it in stride. Thankfully all of her labs came back with good news. Robin was kind enough to give me tips on elderly cats, including how to keep her comfortable, which is my main concern. Great service and I'll use it again.

Robin was fantastic with my sick cat. She was incredibly helpful on a Sunday when my normal vet was closed. She did a great job making us both feel comfortable and assessing his ailments. She showed me how to give him an IV to treat his dehydration and followed up with additional resources to guide me. My cat was back to normal in just a few days. It's pricey, but well worth the convenience, comfort, and attention.
