The mission of Cats Love Housecalls is to make every veterinary visit for an owner and their special cat an extra-ordinary experience that involves kindness and knowledge. We provide common services but perform them uncommonly well by traveling to our patients, listening to our clients, completing thorough physical exams, and empowering owners through excellent communication to provide the best treatment for their cat from kittenhood through the golden years.
Dr. Burnside is currently dividing her time between Salt Lake City/Park City, Utah and Austin, TX. We are currently accepting new clients both in Texas and now in Utah!
Dr. B travels to Austin one week a month to see her clients and their kitties. We see appointments Monday to Friday of that specific week. We are currently equipped to see a variety of housecall cases and can also obtain lab samples like blood, urine, and blood pressure readings for your primary vet. Charla may be available for acute treatments if needed. Charla is also available for cat sitting in the 78704 and 78703 zip codes and medication administration (oral, injections, subcutaneous fluids) in the Austin area and her contact e-mail is
When in SLC/Park City, Dr. B sees appointments Monday through Thursday mornings. We are currently equipped to see many housecalls cases including thorough exams (eyes, skin, internal medicine, etc), vaccines, kitten to senior cat care & counseling. In the SLC area, we are able to obtain blood, urine, and blood pressure values for senior kitties as well.
Dr. B and her wonderful receptionist/veterinary nurse, Charla, will continue to consult on cases by phone/email and mail needed medications.
Dr. Burnside has been caring for our cats for many years, and is like an extended family member - watching our kids grow up, sharing tips about vacations and restaurants, and swapping crazy cat stories. From first check-ups for feisty kittens, to the peaceful passing of a beloved elder cat, Dr. B has always delivered outstanding service with integrity and compassion. She is inquisitive about everything, from the cats' eating habits to how they play, in order to provide holistic care that addresses all aspects of our cats' health and happiness. She is patient, gentle, explains everything in relatable terms, keeps detailed records, provides great referrals, and remembers all the cats' quirks - how else would she have our cat growling and purring simultaneously, at every checkup! Charla is an outstanding technician, and she and Dr. B make a terrific team. Imagine if all doctors made house calls like Dr. B!
We're extremely fortunate to have found Cats Love Housecalls and value the relationship we have with them. We especially appreciate the attentive care Dr. B and Charla provide in addition to the convenience and reduced stress of in home visits. The peace of mind that accompanies this level of care is of tremendous value and has enhanced our lives and our cats' well-being beyond measure.
