It's official!!  Owensboro is now home to a mobile veterinarian service.  As of this morning, Animal House is now serving customers in Owensboro/Daviess County.


Though Dr. Laura Richey has been serving clients and pets in southern Indiana for the last two years. today marks her first official day of operation on this side of the river.  As a matter of fact, she plans on being in Owensboro every Tuesday and Thursday from here on.   Here's her full, intended schedule of service:

On Mondays, Dr. Richey will have Animal House in the Spencer County area. Tuesdays and Thursdays, Animal House will be scheduling appointments in Owensboro.  Wednesdays you'll find Animal House serving pets in the Evansville area.  On Fridays, Dr. Richey will be back in Spencer County.

If you'd like to to make your furry friends an appointment, there are several ways to do it.  You can call 812-499-5800.  Or you can contact Dr. Richey via Facebook or through the Animal House website.


Animal House offers a wide variety of veterinary services: wellness care (vaccines, heartworm testing, etc ), x-rays, blood work, dental cleanings, and basic surgeries like spays and neuters.  They also offer on-site euthanasia, which provides a great deal of comfort for pet owners and distressed pets.

As for the minor surgeries Animal House performs, just a couple of weeks ago, I had Dolly at Animal House for a minor procedure and some lab work (she's doing very well and is cancer-free, by the way).  Dr. Richey and her vet tech Dana Brown are amazing and their service is thoroughly convenient.

I have been taking my pets to see Dr. Richey for years and the convenience of her Animal House mobile service has been a game changer.   And, now, pet owners in Owensboro get to enjoy that convenience as well.
