Dr. Carol Selavka of Charlton has started Baystate Mobile Veterinary Services, which provides animal owners with at-home care for their ill pets. Selavka started the service about a month ago, driving a large van to the homes of animals in need of care. The service is available to area residents; however, she is willing to travel to residents statewide. "There was a need for it in the area," Selavka said in an interview inside the van last Monday. Selavka, and her technician, Tanya Christian, can perform just about any type of care inside the van, including surgery, euthanasia and x-rays.

The new service is intended to reduce the stress on both the pet and owner, according to Selavka. "It just seems much more personal," Selavka said. "It is just so much lower stress for them. For example, Selavka x-rayed a dog last week that had impaled itself on a branch. Instead of the dog going to a regular vet, Selavka did the scan on a digital x-ray machine in the van. "The dog is doing fine," Selavka said.
Since starting, Selavka said she done three calls daily, but would like to boost that rate to six. She serves many elderly animal owners, as well as the State Police's K-9 unit. Many families have also requested her services, she said, because it saves them time during their already hectic days. Selavka's experience as a veterinarian for many years convinced her the mobile services would work. Selavka said she would often receive calls at her old employer, Sturbridge Veterinary Hospital, from people who were unable to bring their pets to the facility. A departure from working in the confines of a brick and mortar veterinary facility, Selavka said working the van presents unusual circumstances. For example, whereas an animal might be taken to a closed room at a regular vet, an owner in Selavka's van sees everything being done to the animal. The face-to-face communication, however, eases the owners' minds and reduces the chances of malpractice occurring, according to Selavka. "It's beneficial now. It eases the owner," she said. "It's just taking a little getting used to. Selavka also uses the inperson care to educate owners, she said. She often gives them handouts she prints from the wireless Internet setup in the van. While business is just starting out, Selavka is already considering future expansion options. Selavka said she could renew her Connecticut practice license and expand her services to that state. More care vans and staff are also a possibility, she said, as well as other care equipment. "Those are possibilities down the road," she said. Selavka has also had to adjust to working in the tight quarters, which includes several cages and a surgical table. Selavka ordered the van brand new after learning about them at several professional gatherings. For Selavka, the venture is only the latest chapter in her years a veterinarian. Having grown up in East Hampton, Conn., Selavka worked 10 years at Angell Animal Medical Center in Springfield, from 1997 until it closed in 2007. She then worked at Sturbridge Veterinary Hospital. Pining to work with animals, she graduated from the University of Pennsylvania with a veterinary medical doctor degree in 1995. She has been a veterinarian technician since 1995. As she rolls down the road to her next service call, Selavka will remember why she endeavored on the new service. "They" she said referring to animals, "are part of the family."

I tossed and turned and at 2am I emailed veterinarian Dr. Carolyn Selavka of Baystate Mobile Veterinary Services and asked her about dogs left in hot cars. Here is what she said "When I worked emergency, I found most of these (cases) came in when the temp was 70-80 (not that hot), as people don't realize how fast things get hot in the car, Usually over 80, people start to get a clue as they are hot too.
