About Dr. Derse
“We are the proud owners of a Red Lab, two mini Dachshunds, and a rabbit. We found ourselves going to and from the vet for different vaccinations and the occasional ” I think he ate something visit”. When started using Dr. Derse we almost completely eliminated our trips to the vet office. Dr. Derse comes to our house and in a short time takes care of all of your pets. So if she’s there to check up on one of the dogs, she can check on everyone without us having to drag everyone to the vet! Not to mention it is a much more relaxed environment for the animal No one likes going to the Vet! It is super convenient and the best part is that the pricing is competitive with the freestanding Vet office that we used to visit. Seriously the best thing that we ever found!”
“When my dog punctured his foot while running outside, I called Dr. Derse to come to our home and look at the wound. Dr. Derse arrived promptly, examined the foot, and told us exactly what we needed to do to heal the foot. She also prescribed antibiotics for our dog. Not only did she provide excellent care for our dog but the in-home service was invaluable to us. Our dog has a lot of anxiety going to a veterinarian’s office and needs to be muzzled when we go. However, our dog did not have anxiety and was very pleasant when Dr. Derse examined him. In addition, with a busy family schedule, it was so much more convenient to have Dr. Derse come to our house. She examined our dog while I was getting our son ready for soccer and dinner on the table. Finally, her rates were very reasonable and not any more expensive than the fees we experienced when taking our dog to the veterinarian’s office. We plan on using her in the future for emergencies as well as wellness exams and vaccinations for our dogs. I would not hesitate to use her as your veterinarian in the future!”
“How does one go from sadness to peaceful at the loss of a canine family member of 17 years? Taylor, our Maltese, grew up with me and my two brothers from grammar school to college. He was always there for us during the happy times and was there to listen and comfort us during the difficult times. When his age caught up with him, facing a difficult decision of putting him to rest was almost unbearable to think of. Even though I knew it was the right thing to do for Taylor, I was deeply saddened about saying goodbye.
Dr. Derse talked me through the process and helped put my mind at ease. I asked her, “How are you able to this as part of your everyday job?” She explained that knowing it is the right thing to do for the animal helps her get through it. Dr. Derse was extremely kind and compassionate and made the last few moments with Taylor extremely peaceful and I am grateful she was there with me.”
“With a squirmy 9 month old son at home and a 6 year old cat who doesn’t enjoy car trips, Veterinary Housecall Care is a lifesaver. Dr Derse was flexible and accommodating with scheduling the appointment and was great with our little (err…big…weighing 16 lbs) scaredy-cat. Our cat is on the mend and our family is very happy to avoid a frustrating trip to a vet. With so many hassles in life, it’s great to hit the “easy button” and call Dr. Derse!”
“It has been my pleasure to have Dr Derse as my dog’s veterinarian for about a year now. Due to one of my dogs no longer able to get in my car, I had to find a vet who could make home visits. Dr Derse came to our home and was incredibly professional, knowledgeable and proficient. She also has an immediate repoire with animals, which made me know I had made the right decision!
Unfortunately, one of my dogs recently needed to be humanely euthanized, which I had Dr Derse perform, She could not have been more loving and respectful both to my sweet girl and to me throughout the entire process. She became a trusted confidant who I could contact with questions and concerns and was always there for us. I am so grateful to Dr Derse for how she helped us through that difficult time.
I have since adopted another rescue and could not imagine working with another veterinarian! She has truly become a trusted advisor and Dr for my family pets!”
“Cats really do have 9 lives and Dr. Jami-Lyn Derse has saved my cat Sox 3 of her lives so far.
I am truly grateful for Dr. Jami-Lyn Derse and her staff at Veterinary Housecall Care LLC. Back a couple of years ago I was in the hospital for 5 days and a friend was taking care of my cat Sox. She sent me pictures of her and it prompted me to look at older pictures. Well I noticed then that Sox had lost a tremendous amount of weight. Sox also was throwing up a lot when I returned from the hospital. I reached out to a friend of mine from Church Tracey and she recommended Dr. Jami-Lyn Derse. I called and told her the situation and she and her assistant came out right away. They took blood work and the test results came back with bad numbers. Sox had to go to the Companion Animal Specialty & Emergency Hospital (this is where Dr. Jami-Lyn Derse too I also highly recommend this establishment too). She had to get fluids into her and stay the night. Life 1 saved.
Second episode sometime after was very similar Sox was throwing up a lot and losing weight. She needed an adjustment to her medications and more fluids. Life 2 saved.
Third episode Sox either had stroke or a seizure in the middle of the night which scared me to pieces. They came out again. Sox was doing ok, but we had to keep an eye on her (Thanksgiving will be a year since this episode). Life 3 saved.
I am hoping that Sox prior to me getting her didn’t have any other lost lives and that I still have 6 more lives with her left all due to Dr. Jami-Lyn Derse.
I have already recommended all of them to many people and will continue to do so. All her assistants are Rockstars too.”
“With two small children and two large older cats with diabetes, asthma and cranky attitudes, taking the felines to the vet can be a challenge! Dr. Jami-Lyn Derse is a godsend! It’s so wonderfully convenient to have her come to our house to clip the cats’ nails, discuss their medications and ensure we are giving them the best care. Her bedside manner is warm, patient and professional and she’s wonderful to work with!”
“Dr. Derse has been treating both our golden retriever puppy Pappy and 15-year-old cat, Fat Joe, for over a year. She was super helpful when I was 8 months pregnant with twins. I wasn’t able to lift Pappy in our car, so she came to our house and gave him his vaccines. She also diagnosed Fat Joe with a hyper-thyroid and has since been monitoring her through bloodwork tests. She is always on time and our pets love her! I can’t imagine what we would do without her at-home services. Thanks, Dr. Derse!”
