WELCOME TO BLAKE HOME VET
Providing Excellent Service & Exceptional Care
At Blake Home Vet, we love animals, and we want to make sure every pet feels at ease. To do this, before a check up begins we spend time getting your pet comfortable so that they can feel relaxed enough for an exam. With more relaxation your pet is less stressed while we complete their examination…
all in the comfort of your own home!
We recommend annual wellness exams for adult dogs and cats between one and seven years old. Puppies, kittens, and senior pets should have more frequent examinations. At each check-up, we record your pet’s weight and temperature, ask about eating habits and exercise, and discuss parasite control. Our veterinarians also check for specific health issues, such as diabetes and signs of cancer. You also have the chance to get help with any behavioral concerns.
Some of the most common surgeries we perform include tooth extraction, removal of skin masses, bladder stones, and surgery for various types of cancer. Regardless of the type of surgery your pet needs, his or her veterinarian will let you know exactly what you can expect. This includes the surgical procedure itself as well as the recovery at home.
Although the age at which dogs and cats are considered a senior can vary by breed, we like to start seeing pets for bi-annual exams around age seven. Like people, older pets have an increased risk of kidney disease, heart disease, cancer, diabetes, liver disease, senility, and general weakness. Staying on top of these issues helps improve the quality of life for your pet in the senior years. Mobility challenges and behavior changes are also more common with older pets.
Vaccinations play a vital role in extending your pet’s life and preventing disease, illness, and fatality. We can help you understand and navigate the complexity of your pet’s immunizations whether you’re adopting a puppy, kitty, cat, dog, or another pet.
Parasites can have a serious effect on your pet’s health through infection and disease. We can diagnose and safely treat external, intestinal, and other internal parasites to protect your pet. We can also prescribe preventative medicine to continue to keep your pet and family safe from a parasite infestation.
Exotic companion animals are a quickly growing trend in many households, and they need veterinary care just like other animal. If your small friend gets sick or injured we will be there for them every step of the way.
We can’t even begin to express the love and knowledge Dr. Blake has shown us and our Great Dane. He was having mobility issues to the point of not being able to get up. Dr. Blake was available the day we called her and has helped our boy tremendously through accupuncture and the right combination of meds. Not only did she know exactly what he needed, she took the time to get to know him too. Her in home service is stress free, beyond convenient and worth every penny. Often animals are nervous going into the clinic and in our case we couldn’t get ours into a vehicle to even get him there. He was so relaxed and content in the comfort of our own home and in her care. We will use Dr. Blake from here on out and for our other animals too. Her service, dedication and wonderful demeanor is unmatched. Thank you Dr. Blake, we don’t know what we’d do without you.
Dr. Blake has cared for our cockatiels and budgies over many years. Our birds have taken an instant liking to her on their very first visit – I think there is just something about her that they know instinctively. She has always been extremely competent and professional; we trust her completely with our beloved birds. We were pleased to learn that Dr. Blake now has her own practice and, she makes house calls! Buddy (our current cockatiel) was far less stressed getting his exam, wing clip and toenail clip today at our home than he would have otherwise been with a trip to the vet’s office and a waiting room full of dogs and cats. We were less stressed too as we don’t like exposing him to other potentially sick birds in a vet’s waiting room. We will definitely call on Dr. Blake to treat Buddy again whenever necessary and are very happy to know that she’s available.

Dr. Blake is a wonderful vet! She is very knowledgeable and always has well-informed and thoughtful answers to questions that I have had about our dogs. She was a significant comfort to us when we had to put our 13 yr old dog to sleep. I know that I can trust her with our animals and that she will treat them as if they were her own pet. Our dogs love her and never show signs of stress when going to see her.
We’ve entrusted the healthcare of our everchanging family, including cats, rabbits and guinea pigs, to Dr. Blake for over 17 years. She’s like family. She approaches the care of our little ones as if they’re her own, always making us feel special. Dr. Blake listens to our concerns, helps us to describe what we’re seeing at home, takes time to explain the conditions to us and fully describes treatment options in a way we can understand. Dr. Blake has always been compassionate and human during all of our interactions, but especially during those times when our loved ones have needed her most, giving straightforward answers to tough questions, and openly sharing in our grief.
In discussing treatment options with us, it’s not uncommon for her to say that she just read a paper on this, or attended a conference on that, or that she consulted another professional. And her reputation precedes her. Based on interactions we’ve had with other veterinary professionals familiar with Dr. Blake, our sense is that she is well-respected and highly-regarded in her field. And in her previous clinic it was apparent how staff and fellow doctors respected and trusted Dr. Blake for her depth of knowledge and experience. This all adds to our confidence that we’re getting the most up-to-date, well-informed care.
