Welcome to our FAQ Section

What areas do you service?
We are based in Kingston, NH. We service a 30 minute radius from Kingston. We can also travel to Massachusetts. Dr. Curry is not licensed in Maine. Not sure if you are located within our service area? Just call!
What are your hours?
We are open 8-6 Monday- Friday, weekends by appointment. We are flexible and can work around your schedule as needed.
How does a house call appointment work?
Your appointment with All Creatures Mobile Veterinary Service will be tailor-made to your needs from the very first phone call, when we will discuss your pet’s vaccine options, medical issues or specific needs. For routine veterinary care, we have the ease of Dr. Curry’s mini-van, fully equipped with basic medical and vaccine supplies. For sick animal appointments, injured animals or surgery, Dr. Curry will bring the 30 foot mobile surgical unit affectionately name “The Beast”. With the mobile unit, Dr. Curry is able to provide X-ray services, laboratory services, cages for hospitalization and a surgery suite.
Can you help my animal when it is sick?
Yes, many diseases can be treated at home, at least initially. We will examine your pet, discuss what can be done at home and if there are any recommendations for testing or treatment that should be done at a hospital. We have an agreement with a local hospital for X-rays, surgery, dental cleanings and tooth extractions. In the event you cannot transport your pet we may be able to arrange transportation for you. If your animal is too sick to be treated at home we will arrange for inpatient care at a 24 hour facility.
Can you do anything other than vaccines?
Yes! Dr. Curry has a strong background in emergency and critical care medicine and can perform the testing and treatment, including surgery, as needed on a mobile basis. There are cages for hospitalization if needed. We also can do surgery, dental cleanings and X-ray. We work with a number of rescues and provide veterinary care, health certificates and spay/neuter services at low cost to rescues and through Cocheco Valley Humane Society (link)
What are the benefits of a mobile veterinary service?
The number one benefit is less stress on your animal! By keeping your pets in their own, familiar environment, we reduce the stress before we even begin to examine them or treat them. Some clients have transportation issues making visits to the veterinarian an ordeal. Moms managing small children may find a trip to the veterinarian quite an adventure! Many animals, especially cats and elderly dogs, do not travel well and are much more comfortable—and better behaved– in their own home. If a house call is not appropriate, for example if you’re animal will need 24 hour monitoring, Dr. Curry will refer you to your local emergency facility.
Can you do everything at my house?
Dr. Curry will examine your animal, discuss recommended tests and treatment. Surgery, dentals, Xray and all laboratory testing can be done right at your house. If an animal needs 24 hour care, you will be transferred to a local emergency hospital.
