Dr. Piaskowski’s house call practice focuses on preventative health care as well as hospice and end of life care.  Dr. Piaskowski enjoys seeing her patients in the comfort of their home environment, reducing the anxiety associated with a veterinary appointment for both pets and their families. She enjoys the close relationships she forms with clients in house call visits.

Dr. Piaskowski shares her home with her family, which includes 3 cats, 1 guinea pig, and 1 very mischievous Golden Retriever.
