Veterinarian in an office or clinic: the equivalent of a general practitioner

A lots of veterinarians registered with the National Order of Veterinarians, more than half of them look after dogs and cats. The general veterinarian is a bit like the cat's doctor! Located near you, he practices in an office or clinic.

Veterinarian at home: the comfort formula for the cat and his master

A phone call and the vet comes home with all his medical equipment! Time saving solution for the master and ant stress for the cat who hates the movements and the presence of foreign animals.

Emergency Veterinarian

If an accident occurs at night or on Sunday, contact an emergency service.

Most. The speed of intervention and the possibility of choosing a solution on a case-by-case basis: veterinarian on call near home, at home or at the Veterinary Hospital Center.

The least. The price (to count a minimum of 80 euros the consultation without medical act).

Where to find it? Via your attending veterinarian (given the contact details of the day care service in his absence) and most home veterinarians. All veterinary hospitals also have a 24-hour emergency service.
