SmartVet is the only Mobile Veterinary Practice serving the Bloomington-Normal Area. Open since November 2011, SmartVet offers the services and quality of a typical veterinary practice but the experience is simplified by bringing it all to your home. Coming into your home allows us to perform veterinary services in the most comfortable environment for your pets. We also strive to implement pet friendly techniques that are beneficial to your pet and result in a more pleasant experience. We believe the care of all pets should complement the lifestyle and schedule of their family. With this in mind, we have adapted an approach to accommodate a wide spectrum of individual client-based preferences. We know it is not always convenient or effortless to make an office visit, which is why we come to you. For services that cannot be performed in the comfort of your home, such as surgery and radiographs, we have a facility located at 1537 Fort Jesse Road in Normal IL. We are accepting new patients.
