How much did the house call cost? I am facing the same situation with a dog & cat. Time is here, just hurts but I would perfer to have it happen at home. May your dog R.I.P. My heart tuggs.

We have had Dr Scott care for our pets for about 10 months now. We feel that he is the best, most caring vet we have ever worked with. He helped our 15 year old dog get through her difficult, final months and when he came to put her down, she could hardly walk but still got up and walked over to greet him. We now have a new rescue dog who has heartworm and he is doing a wonderful job treating her. I don't think his services are more expensive than other vets but if they are, he is worth it.

Where to start with Scott !

I was fortunate enough to start my career in the veterinary field with Dr. Scott Wouk. At the time he had his own free standing clinic, in Punta Gorda. He taught me everything I know. I worked for him for over 6 years, back in the 90's. He was a great teacher, and would answer any questions I had, thoroughly. He expected his staff to know their stuff, and if you worked hard,he would teach you whatever you wanted to know ! There were no slackers allowed at that clinic ! His clients/pets came first !!
This is a GREAT veterinarian. His insights into certain pharmaceutical companies/products was incredible !(What he didn't like, what he approved of. I've since stayed in the animal care business , and found his intuitions to be solid, and proven, time and time again !))
I moved away after he sold his practice, and worked for another vet office. I was able to jump right in, and do my job, because Scott trained me so well.I want to emphasize I worked very closely with this man for years. He's a wonderful human being with compassion, which makes him a wonderful veterinarian ! I knew his kids and his parents, and spent holidays together ,etc.
He is, and always will be not just a mentor, but a friend. He's not like other vets. He's a down to earth guy, who will tell you what is best for your beloved pet. If you think his prices are too high, try the other vets in that area. You'll come back to him. He's worth it.I say this without any reservations, because I worked with him, and we became great friends . I work in a vet lab now, in a different county. I know I could never find another veterinarian that would hold up to my high standards, as Scott.

I'm so happy to find that he's practicing the mobile vet route !Many of his long time clients were devastated when he sold his practice. Pet owners need more vets like him !!

I used dr wouk in the past. I'm very upset with this vet.. he took $375.00 of my money for unnecessary treatment when my dog had cancer and needed tumor removed. Instead, he made me wait 5 weeks and never got back to me.I finally took my dog to another vet,the cancer was removed within 3 days.Unfortunately, the other vet couldn't remove all the cancer as it had already spread. I called dr wouk a week after tumor was seen.. maybe if it would've been removed 5 weeks sooner, I wouldn't be losing my beautiful golden. New vet told me my boy has about 6 months left. I'm angry, and very sick that this is how I was treated, and because this vet didn't follow through, and took my money, I will lose my beloved dog.Please beware of this vet.. I trusted him.. and I got nothing but an unnecessary bill and my dog who could ve been saved.

dr. scott came to our house last week to put our beloved great dane to sleep. i've been around a long time, had many pets and many vets, but he was the kindest, most compassionate vet i have ever met. he sent a personalized card afterwards, even remembering to mention how i came about rescuing our girl many years ago. a truly caring compassionate man. thank you for the very peaceful experience.

The worst vet I've ever used. He is unprofessional, has a foul mouth, and gouged me with his prices. He charged $149.00 for amoxicillin for my dog. When I went to another vet and showed him dr wouks invoice, he agreed I was overcharged. He then took my dog in my driveway to clean a tumor. A shot of antibiotics, a visit and a 10 day supply of amoxicillin set me back $390.00. He also doesn't show up at scheduled time. I used him more than once, but this was the last time. Beware of this vet.

Well of course you're going to pay more for the convenience of not having to take your pets to a Vet's office. Everyone who does house calls charge more. Doctors. Vets, computer technicians, etc...

and to goldenluver: if your dog's cancer had matastisized, 5 weeks wouldn't have made a difference. It had probably already spread long before that. If he took over $300.00 from you though, he absolutely should have followed through. That's highly unprofessional.

Just for him to come out is 69.00. Blood work is probably $50 and heartworm is @ least $30 a month. Call around. Vets prices vary greatly. @ the person who said my dog's cancer had already metastasized I called dr wouk a lees than a wk after tumor was visible, and he treated it w/ antibiotics and put my off for 5 wks. I had pathology done on tumor. Very rare cancer that didn't spread to vital organs. The vet who did operate said it had just gone into spinal column. I'll never know if he could've been saved. Shame on dr wouk and shame on me for trusting this man.

Doctor scott has been caring for my dog for several years now and i have never been more pleased. He has never missed an appointment, and has always put the best interest of my dog first. I am of lower middle class financial means ( broke in debt) and feel his prices are more than fair for the level of compasion ,skill , and service he provides. Dr. Scott has always been top notch in my book !
