What sort of treatments can be done at home?

With the exception of intensive care, hospitalization and X-rays, virtually every procedure that is done in the hospital can be done at home either by a veterinarian, a technician, an experienced animal caregiver, or even yourself.

A broad list includes basic care such as medicating orally or by injection, fluid therapy, enteral feeding, chest or abdominal fluid drainage, wound care, medical grooming, anal gland expression, nail trims, hospice care, chemotherapy, acupuncture, physical and hydrotherapy, and the list goes on.

All treatment protocols must either be prescribed by a veterinarian.
