No, you will not have to make any monthly payments before your Wag’n Tails veterinary vehicle is ready for delivery. Wag’n Tails understands how important cash flow is when starting a new business or growing an existing business. Our lead time is approximately 8 weeks from the time of order. We typically always have an inventory of vehicles on our lot ready for customization.
All of our veterinary customers receive a mobile veterinary business success guide. This guide is a time-tested and proven educational resource that teaches veterinarians how to build a successful mobile business. It includes valuable information ranging from pricing strategy to client scheduling and rebooking best practices, marketing and sales techniques, budgeting, vehicle maintenance, and so much more. Wag’n Tails also provides business consulting services to customers in need of additional support. Our mission is to help mobile pet care professionals be successful, and our customers have an excellent track record of achieving their personal and professional goals.
On average, a mobile veterinarian with a Wag’n Tails vehicle charges about 30% more than a veterinarian working in a brick-and-mortar clinic. However, the pricing premium could be higher or lower than the average depending on the demographics of your local market. Mobile veterinary clients are more than willing to pay a premium because mobile services are convenient and time-saving for them and better for their pet(s).
On average, a mobile veterinarian with a Wag’n Tails vehicle sees about 12 pets per day. A mobile veterinarian can afford to see fewer pets daily because a comparable level of revenue can be generated through premium pricing for mobile services. Furthermore, many mobile veterinary clients have multi-pet households, which helps with both travel efficiency and work productivity and often leads to more meaningful time with pet patients/parents and improved work-life balance for mobile veterinarians.
This is a lesson that we learned through years of experience. Large commercial vans are designed to carry the loads needed for mobile veterinary services. They have better suspension than lighter vans and are designed specifically for heavy-duty loads. With the generator and other conversion elements, you need a van that will withstand years of use. One-ton vans are necessary for the durability and longevity of your veterinary vehicle.
Certainly. Wag’n Tails has designed veterinary vehicles that we think are both highly efficient and a pleasure to work in. However, no two veterinarians are alike, so changes to many features are available. An extra charge may apply though depending on the customization.
Yes, we have several financing sources available. You can finance or lease your veterinary vehicle, depending on what is best for you and your business.

“We are very excited to provide mobile veterinary services in the coastal area to new and existing clients. Mobile services not only relieve stress in pets who do not like to be transported, but these services are also very convenient for pet owners who are unable to easily travel. Mobile services are especially great for clients who would prefer a private visit with their pet’s doctor in the comfort of their own home.”
Dr. Venkat Kuncharapu
“There are people in need who can’t come to the clinic, so I go to them. Mobile veterinary services provide a stress-free environment for pets as well as clients. I feel the bond. I feel the love, unconditional love, and I know that pet parents feel the same way. Right now, I’m living my dream.”
Dr. Amalia Lopez
“Going mobile has been a big change for me. I used to work 12 hours a day in a large veterinary hospital and rarely had time to even go outside, which was hard for me. Now, I have freedom to set my own schedule, which helps me to have a more balanced life. I focus mostly on wellness care with my mobile practice but have an agreement with a local clinic to perform surgeries there one day a week, which works out really well for everyone.”
Dr. Kathy Baker
“The two hours commuting on top of a 10 to 12-hour workday was creating a taxing situation for my family and me. I wanted to continue practicing veterinary medicine at a level that I had grown to love while still having time to care for my husband and kids. Starting my own mobile veterinary practice has given me the flexibility to do both and not have to sacrifice one at the expense of the other. It has been a life-giving experience.”
