Welcome to Veterinary House Calls

Meet My Family



Veterinary House Calls, in Franklin MA, has been leading the  charge for creating a fear free pet healthcare culture since 1991. Dr. Paula Ruel, a practicing DVM and Registered Nurse Practitioner, discovered that traveling to a pet’s home to provide complete healthcare significantly reduced stress and anxiety for both pets and their owners. 



  Dr. Ruel believes in educating her clients in overall well-being and health – both animals and people. In her hospital she implements the Bicom 2000, a revolutionary computer-controlled diagnostic tool that uses electromagnetic resonance therapy to treat more than 400 ailments. She is also an Isotonix OPC-3 supplier. These oligomeric proanthocyanidins are strong antioxidants that can help reduce damage from oxygen and nitrogen radicals as well as help strengthen and repair connective tissue.

 An all-inclusive animal services and supplies facility, The Veterinary House Calls Office is your pet’s home away from home. Instead of a dreaded visit to the vet, coming here feels like a visit to a beloved neighbor. The setting speaks volumes of Dr. Ruel’s love of animals and deep understanding of their needs. She has a pet whisperer’s quality about her, and animals are naturally drawn to her warmth and compassion. If your pet is in need of a dental cleaning or surgery, the office at 162 Forest Street can provide for all of your pet’s needs.
