The Vet and The Van is a Hobart based mobile veterinary service that specializes in providing in-home care for dogs and cats. Founded in 2021 by Dr. Alysha Thriscutt, a dedicated veterinarian with a passion for senior pet care, the business focuses on offering empathetic and compassionate end-of-life care for furry companions. Dr. Thriscutt, along with her team of experienced professionals, aims to support families through the difficult decision-making process and provide personalized care plans tailored to each pet’s individual needs.

With longer consultation times, The Vet and The Van ensures that ample time is dedicated to understanding both the pets and their families, creating a comfortable and stress-free environment for all involved. Dr. Kellie Waltran, another skilled veterinarian on the team, shares the same commitment to enhancing the quality of life for senior pets and facilitating peaceful end-of-life experiences at home. Together with veterinary nurse Jen Pelham, who specializes in calming nervous cats, the team strives to make each consultation as low-stress as possible, ensuring the well-being of both the pets and their owners.

Queen Mabel, the beloved geriatric rescue dog of Dr. Alysha Thriscutt and former Business CEO, inspired the business’s dedication to senior pet care. Mabel’s memory lives on in the business’s ethos, reflecting the team’s deep-rooted passion and love for older pets. The Vet and The Van’s commitment to providing professional, compassionate, and personalized veterinary care in the comfort of pets’ homes underscores their mission to support families through every stage of their furry companions’ lives.
