The business offers general wellness care and vaccinations, in addition to illness and injury care, in clients’ homes. Trained vets will also provide end of life services, including hospice care and in-home euthanasia.

Pets will have "access to the highest quality veterinary care, right in the comfort of their own homes," MVS CEO Todd Giatrelis said in a statement. Veterinarians interested in working in Atlanta should contact Giatrelis at or call 617-697-3534.
