ACUPAWS offers mobile veterinary services, delivering acupuncture for pets in their home environment and providing veterinary care for dogs and cats within the comfort and safety of their own homes. We cater to Pretoria and Johannesburg, as well as specific surrounding areas.

Mobile acupuncture treatment

Certified veterinary Acupuncturists have comprehensive training, knowledge and skill to understand the interactions between different forms of treatment and to interpret the patient's response to therapy.

Mobile veterinary service

The convenience of a mobile vet that travels to your home for examinations, consultations and acupuncture.


A Veterinary consultation suite is also available in Pretoria East, Tiger Valley, offering general veterinary consultations

A mobile service has several advantages

  • Convenience: No travel or waiting rooms
    Gone are the days of wrangling a nervous pet into the car and waiting in a crowded waiting room. Instead, our mobile vet will come directly to your home at a time that works for you. No sitting in traffic, no waiting in line, and no worries about your dog or cat being afraid of other animals while they wait for veterinary care.
  • Stress Reduction: Familiar environment for pets
    A major advantage of our housecall service is the reduced stress it causes for pets. Many pets find traditional veterinary clinics to be scary or overwhelming.
    By bringing the vet directly to your home, your pet can relax in a familiar environment and avoid the stress of being transported, unfamiliar sights, strange smells, lots of new people, and new sounds. This can lead to a more positive and less traumatic experience for your pet.
  • Personalized Attention: One-on-one care and more time with the vet
    Without the distractions of a busy clinic, we can provide personalized attention to each patient and discuss any concerns or questions in detail. This also allows us to take our time and fully evaluate your pet without feeling rushed.
  • Safety: Reduced exposure to other sick animals
