Baystate Mobile Veterinary Services is not your traditional veterinary practice. We are both;  a mobile house-call veterinary practice and brick and mortem stationary hospital.  For mobile visits to your companion pets we operate in a large, RV-based mobile clinic. We may not be traditional, but we offer a full range of veterinary services, with the benefit that we can also come to you!

Advantages:

  • No stressful car rides
  • No exposure to other sick or reactive pets
  • No white coat anxiety
  • Individualized attention
  • Most pets don’t even realize they are being visited by a veterinarian—they just think we are “over-interested company”
  • Comprehensive appointments- we take the time that we need to make you and your pet feel at ease

Our team is a small group made up of our veterinarian and two team members who are dedicated to high quality, practical and compassionate veterinary care for your pet. We work hard to balance the best, yet most-effective care for your pets.

Baystate Mobile Veterinary Services is committed to providing excellent care in a stress-free environment for all of our patients. We’d love to tell you more about our services and the motivation behind our revolutionary mobile and stationary practice. We invite you to contact us to learn more about our practice and to schedule a visit from our team!

  • Natasha Day Christian
    Veterinary Technician

    Natasha has been a part of the Baystate Mobile Veterinary Services team since 2011. She graduated from Quinsigamond Community College, with an Associate's Degree in deaf studies. 

    One of the things she loves most about working with Baystate Mobile Vet is educating clients so they feel confident and comfortable with their pet’s treatment plans.  

    She has one daughter, three sisters, and a bunch of nieces and nephews. Her pets include an English Mastiff, a Border Collie Mix, and a Ragdoll. When she is not working, she enjoys hiking with her family and dogs, kayaking… really anything outside.

  • Rachael Dodson
    Veterinary Technican and Receptionist

    Rachael chose to pursue a second career in veterinary medicine after raising her two children, now ages 14 and 17.  She first joined Baystate Mobile Veterinary Services as an intern back in 2014, remained with us while completing her externship, and returned in 2020 as a veterinary technician after serving with another local animal hospital.  In addition to enjoying the positive, team-oriented culture at BMVS, Rachael has a true passion for the animals she works with, the people she serves, and is always looking to learn more.

    When not at work, Rachael enjoys the outdoors with her husband and children and her dog; her cat prefers to be left at home.  

  • Kelly Robinson
    Receptionist

    Kelly is the newest member of the Baystate Mobile Veterinary Team, joining in December 2020.  This is a new adventure for her after retiring from twenty-nine years as an Emergency Dispatcher.  She has a very special interest in Canine Epilepsy after having two Mastiffs who lived with Epilepsy.  She also has a love of working K9s after being a K9 mom for 17 years and is a volunteer/board member for Massachusetts Vest A Dog. 
    In her free time, she enjoys running, walking, biking, and photography.  She and her husband, Pat, are owned by a mixed breed, three Mastiffs, a German Shepherd, two cats, and an African Gray Parrot.    

    Kelly loves working at BMVS because of the team approach, constantly learning something new, and never having the same day twice.

  • Amanda Cooper
    Veterinary Technician

    Amanda is a new member of the team, joining us at the end of 2019. Shortly before the pandemic, we found ourselves in need of an extra set of hands and Amanda stepped in to help without a second thought to assist in appointments. Amanda recently began training as a veterinary assistant at Baystate Mobile Veterinary Services.  Amanda assists with everything from appointments to inventory and has quickly become a favorite with both patients and clients, alike. Amanda values family and friends, has a teenage daughter, a cat, and a beloved Labrador named Comet.

    I can not think of a more caring crew. I wouldn't use anyone different.

    Debra C.

    I don't know if I said Thank You when you came to my son's home. But Thank you now. Both the Vet and her aid where very kind and understanding. Not rushing him and his family. Letting us all say good bye in our own time. Very caring and understanding. I wish my vet had been the same. Though not easy they made it a little easier . Thank you

    Rosemar D.

    The whole team is fantastic! They are wonderful and accommodate to my special needs dog and the rest of the crew. We have used them for years, they have been with us through our babies passing and the welcoming of new babies! Couldn't ask for a better Vet team!

    Amanda J.

    The staff is always kind, compassionate, and thorough. They treat my pets like family!

    Nicole N.

    The best experience I have had with a vet. My cats are terrified of going and to have full service care in my home was wonderful. The van is AMAZING. There is nothing that cant be done in this van that you would have done in a Vet hospital. In fact they do even more. The most wonderful and caring people you will meet. Will never go back to a regular office vet.
