Comments : Dr. Bob is absolutely the best. When my cat had severe health issues, Bob came every day to hydrate her over a holiday weekend. He cares so much for the animals in his care. We wouldn't let any other vet take care of our beloved pets.

Comments : They're doing it again. Dr. Bob and Nicole are providing professional, highest quality, timely and loving care to our latest family (pack) addition, Ginger. Not satisfied that we weren't completely utilizing our capacity to care for and nurture another dog with orthopedic and/or metabolic issues, AK (see 7/13/2013 post here) in October 2015, started watching a 12 year old female tripaw golden retriever at the Alabama Golden - Birmingham Rescue web site. Cast into the system when her entire family died, she didn't seem like a good candidate for adoption. The fates aligned. The Alabama dog was named Ginger II. AK's recently deceased brother's dog was named Ginger. AK swore to take care of his dog at his death. His dog died within days of his death from what we believe to be a broken heart. Further, AK's 10 year old golden Brandy is an active, healthy, sweet disposition service and therapy dog who does agility and rally for fun. A living testimony to Dr. Bob's continuing care and treatment. Not what you would envision as a dog with the special needs we're equipped to handle. From two previously handicapped dogs, we have ramps, therapy pool, lifting harnesses, holistic and therapeutic training plus contact resources to provide all levels of care for an animal in need. Did I mention we're both retired with very flexible time demands. The final tipping point in triggering an application to adopt Ginger II came when AK and Brandy were involved in a photo shoot to be used with a promotion through Fox Valley Humane Association senior adoption program in Appleton, WI. Being an alumna of FVHA, Brandy was chosen as the Gray Muzzle program ambassador. The photographer had a tripaw dog. That was all it took for AK to realize that she could make a huge difference in the quality of life for Alabama Ginger II. The adoption process was initiated. The Birmingham facility seemed hesitant to proceed with the adoption process. Seems that there were medical issues with Ginger that were not completely and satisfactorily resolved. AK's daughter-in-law visited the Birmingham facility where Ginger was being housed on an arranged meet and greet. Enter Dr. Bob. Coming to the house, a facetime session was set up with Ginger, Dr. Bob and the Alabama veterinarian to discuss issues, prognoses, temperament and other medical stuff along with a visual estimate of the dog's physical condition. Dr. Bob said the dog looked good despite the four and a half months she was housed in the "pound". The adoption process progressed, transportation was arranged between Alabama, Kentucky and Wisconsin. Literally within minutes of Gingers arrival in Greendale, Dr. Bob was at the house for an initial evaluation, establish preliminary care needs and brief the new owners on unique care needed for a tripaw with mobility issues. Treatment for an on going UTI, continued medication dosing, wound care of some hygiene related injuries, dietary needs and mobility issues were addressed. A complete physical was scheduled immediately following a necessary delay for some treatments to resolve. When Ginger displayed some early anxiety issues with Brandy, Dr. Bob quickly referred us to a dog behaviorist who has scheduled counselling sessions to work through them. Immediately after a course of antibiotics was completed, Dr. Bob and Nicole arrived at the house, did a complete workup, lab work, physical exams, all within the confines of Ginger's mobility handicapped activity space. The test results were returned within hours. This extraordinarily swift care has resulted in the development and implementation of a plan for Ginger's future and quality of life needs. If you love your animals and care for their quality of life, put them in the hands of Dr. Bob. As we've come to anticipate with The Mobile Pet Doctor, only excellence in care is to be expected, and as usual, our expectations were greatly exceeded.

Comments : We had Dr. MCClanahan come to do a home visit on 1 of our 4 dogs, our 10 year old lab/Dane mix. They exceeded all my expectations. All my dogs will be seeing them for future visits.

Comments : Dr. Bob and his staff are the best ever! Our crazy lab, Lilly, who is 12, actually looks forward to their visits! Lilly would have seizures when going to the brick and mortar vet around age 9-10 and so thank goodness we found Dr. Bob and his trusty van. We couldn't be happier! Dr. Bob, you and your staff have made our lives easier and our dog's life better!

Comments : I love Rose's and Colleen's comments. Rose, one of my 3 cats, screams every time I take her to the vet which is only 3 minutes away. She turned 16 in February, 2014 and it seems ironic I am killing her sooner by taking her to the vet. A friend recommend Dr. Bob and I am so grateful. He is very caring and brings very, very competent assistants who can find a vein in a cat weighing only 8 pounds. I can't even give a cat a pill! Thank you Dr. Bob and all the people you work with. I am also with you for life... Because, there will always be cats in my life...

Comments : Mobile pet vet is awesome! I avoided taking my dog to vet clinics due to the stress it put on both me and my dog. With Dr. Bob, it makes life so much easier to make sure my dog is healthy and happy. Dr Bob is great to work with and he follows up with you to make sure your animal is doing ok after a visit. Dr Bob really cares about the animals he sees. I am very very glad i was referred to this service!!!

Comments : Dr Bob comes highly recommended from my Mom, Nancy Marjanov, who lost her best friend and only companion, Foxie, a few months ago. Mom rescued Foxie from a Maltese rescue home - Foxie had been neglected and abused, and Mom felt she could offer him a better life, and better she did! Foxie was 6 or 7 by the time he found a home with Mom, and she loved that little guy to death, bathed him, loved him, walked him, kept him so squeeky clean (and if you have ever had a maltese, you know that isn't always easy) - even brought him to my wedding day in a baby stroller, with a little bowtie that matched our wedding colors. Facing the end and saying goodbye is never an easy thing, and Mom struggled with that of course. Foxie was having trouble walking, and Mom had to carry him outside to "do his business" and of course could no longer walk him. Dr Bob made those last weeks so much easier. Mom said he was such a caring man with a heart of gold. And when you look back at your life, I guess that's really the only thing that matters. Even though my husband and I are younger and not homebound, I like the idea of "in home care" for our animals. I feel it is more comfortable for them, and causes less stress. As our dogs (Dijit and Dexter, a shepherd and pug) get older (they are both 9 1/2 now), I think it is even more important (especially to them) to be home. Based on the recommendation of my Mom alone, I plan to use Dr. Bob in the very near future, and hope he will have us!!

Comments : My husband and I had a Labrador who passed away last August one week shy of her 14th birthday. Our little girl was a true trooper all the way to the end. For ten years she lived with orthopedic issues from an accident. As she aged she developed metabolic issues. Prior to this event I stressed to my husband that there would be no more dogs in our family after our lab had passed. I have a severe allergy to latex I am unable to enter Veterinary Clinics or Hospitals. My belief is to give all to the animals that are in your home. It was very hard for me to stand outside the clinics and look though the windows while my husband and dog were inside. All of our previous care givers were wonderful. They were blessed with a special talent that not many poses. Each specialist involved in her care did come outside and keep me abreast of her treatments. We even did video via the cell phone so I could see what was happening in the treatment rooms. Both my husband and myself are retired Fire Fighters. I had always heard that things are different when the patient is your kid. As she aged, the trips to the vet became more frequent and not being able to be with â€œmy kidâ€ during a time of need was heartbreaking and a feeling that I never wanted to experience again. I decided that not having a pet was better than not being able to be with the pet when they became sick or injured. Like all husbands, mine heeded my wishes and two weeks after our Lab passed, he went to Ohio and returned with an eleven year old Golden Retriever with orthopedic issues from a motor vehicle accident and a Thyroid issue. He felt our home was empty and our lab would want us to pass on the knowledge we had gained in caring for her. We contacted Dr. Bob and explained my allergy. He has done everything he can to accommodate our life style. This past week he has been to our house three times to check on our Golden Princess. Last fall during a Sunday Packer Game he came to the house to drop off some thyroid meds because we ran out. He truly cares about his clients and the critters that he tends too. He does not talk down you you and explains everything that is happening. Sometimes I need the Dr. Suess version of what the medical jargon is and he is calming and reassuring that things will be better in a few days. Dr. Bob's â€œassistantsâ€ are actually Veterinary Technicians. We have met Pam and Nicole. Both are wonderful. In our first meeting with Dr. Bob, Nicole was the Technician on board. In talking to her we discovered that she was the tech on duty when our Lab had an overnight stay at the Critical Care Hospital in Oak Creek. I wondered what happened to my dog as she stayed overnight in her suite. Nicole told me that she slept with my dog. My heart melted. I could not have asked for anything more. When health issues pop up, we either e-mail Dr. Bob or call. Our concerns are addressed almost immediately and a treatment plan is set into action. Dr. Bob and The Technicians have a synergistic effect. Two great things are combined together to make the best Mobile Vet Clinic. Dr. Bob and the Technicians can also be credited with saving our marriage. My husband and â€œhis dogâ€ would have been looking for a place to stay if I had to endure the anxiety of standing outside during one more vet clinic exam and treatment.

Comments : We have a 14 year old dog Missy who is having some health problems due to her age. Taking her to the vet is very stressful and hard on us all. A friend of ours highly recommended Dr. Bob, So we had him come to the house. While we waited for his arrival we sat out on the lawn and enjoyed the beautiful weather. When he arrived, him and his assistant came and sat on the grass with us and gave Missy lots of love while we discussed what was going on with her. They both were so caring and compassionate. I have nothing but great things to say. I have two other dogs and will be having Dr. Bob take care of them also. I am so thankful for him.

Comments : The stress and heartache over putting a pet down is terrible. Dr Bob made that trauma bearable today when he helped me say good-bye to my sweet cat Betsy. He and his assistant were kind and compassionate. They allowed me all the time I needed, explained everything they were gong to do and what to expect.I will be forever grateful for his care and help . He is a wonderful vet. I will recommend him to everyone.

Comments : Our 9yr. old lab mix is not crazy about goin' to the vet! Solution...bring the vet to him! Dr. Bob and his assistant Pam, came into the house to meet our dog first; let him get to know them and get background info by chatting with us. All along making Rory at ease the whole time. When it came time to take him into the mobile unit, he wanted nothing to do with it!! So instead; Dr. Bob and Pam came into the house and gave Rory his exam where he felt the most comfortable.....in his own house. Now that's a real "house call". Very professional and very informative. Every thing they need for a routine exam and shots is always on hand. The entire time with him they kept talking to the dog making him more at ease. Their rates are very reasonable and come highly recommended. So glad we called them and gave them a chance.....We will use them again too!!!

Comments : I have tried many vets in the in the milwaukee county area and have not been very pleased with the care. I found Dr. Mc Clanahan and he is wonderful, He was calm, reassuring and respected me and my dog. The home visit was stressfree, the fees were very affordable and the service was outstanding. I will continue to see Dr. Mc Clanahan for all our future vet needs.

Comments : Dr. McClanahan treated my rescued Spaniel Angel for the first time on Wed. I am so pleased with the service we received! I have nothing but praise for the Doctor and staff. The personal care that Angel received is beyond compare. It was totally stress free for Angel which is very important since he is a rescue with issues. We will be with Dr. McClanahan for life.

Comments : I have 4 pets and have avoided vet office visits due to the stress it caused for my pets and me. As a result, my pets were behind on routine vaccinations and heartworm testing. I had the Mobile Pet Doctor out yesterday and it was the most wonderful, stress free vet experience we have ever had. I expected it to be costly and was pleastantly surprised at how reasonable and affordable this service was. Dr. McClanahan took the time to thoroughly examine my pets with such care and compassion that he has won us over for as long as he can offer this service. It is truly a luxury to have a caring, competent and affordable vet who also makes housecalls!

Comments : We have 2 pets, both of them hate the car so vet visits were very stressful for me and them. Dr. McClanahan's visit was the easiest, most pleasant, most convenient vet visit I've ever had! Both of our pets did well and loved the visit. They got the special attention they need and didn't have the trauma usually associted with it. Mobile Pet Doctor is definatelly the way to go!! We're with him for life!
