There are many different reasons for a pet to visit a veterinarian. Some of these require that a pet go to a clinic. X-rays, ultrasounds, surgery or hospitalization of a critical patient all require a clinic setting.
That said, there are many other types of veterinary visits that can be done at home.
Once a patient-veterinarian relationship
is established, there are some visits that
can be done virtually or by phone.
Ask about telemedicine if you have questions.
