Happy Pets Mobile Vet is a Tampa, Florida-based mobile veterinarian practice owned and operated by Dr. Rachel Magee. In her La Boit-built veterinary vehicle, Dr. Magee offers all the services you’d find in a traditional veterinary clinic, including general wellness examinations, internal medicine, radiology, surgeries, ultrasound, dentistry, and more. She also employs a full-time veterinary technician, Jacqui Ardington Pierce.

Like many of the mobile veterinarians that came before her, most of Dr. Magee’s clients had never visited a mobile veterinarian before.

“Thira was seen by Happy Pets Mobile Vet today and the team did great!,” wrote one client in a Facebook review. “The truck is an impressive fully functional lab! I highly recommend this service for your pets comfort!

Another just said succinctly, “First time ever using something like this, completely sold.”

At first, educating clients who are used to taking their pets into an office versus a mobile clinic can be a challenge. But once they experience the mobile environment, many talk about how it is much more convenient and easy on their pets.

“We’ve always loved Dr. Magee and just had our first appointment with her new ‘office,'” one client writes on Facebook. “She was amazing as expected, but I can’t say enough about the convenience. Such a great idea, especially with three dogs.”

Dr. Magee says that she’s always had a lifelong love of animals, working as a kennel technician throughout high school and college. But it wasn’t until her experience with a five-week old rescue kitten that finally cemented her decision to become a veterinarian. Her website tells the story in which Dr. Magee adopted the kitten, Kiwi, who was involved in an accident shortly after. A veterinarian team was able to save the Kiwi’s life, which ultimately made Dr. Magee realize that she should pursue a veterinary education to help other people the way she and Kiwi had been helped.

Fast forward several years, and Dr. Magee is now a successful mobile veterinary clinic owner. The clinic first launched in April 2019, and from the very beginning, she had a lot of support from the community.

Right after launch, Dr. Magee wrote, “Wow! Our second day out on the road with Happy Pets Mobile Vet and we are so humbled by the outpouring of support for our services.”

When not driving her clinic to house visits, Dr. Magee spends time at home with her husband, Jeff, and their four furbabies, Malibu, Mangos, Winston, and of course, Kiwi.

From all of us at La Boit, we’d like to welcome Dr. Rachel Magee to the La Boit family. We wish you the best of luck now and for the future!
