What Our Clients Say... ​


  • "Dr. Soucheray,

    In a world full of too much pain and unkindness, we welcome these innocent creatures, which we call our pets, into our lives. They come in with such joy that we forget the world and its sorrows. They heal us. They become our hearts, and in return, we give them ours. We love them unconditionally, and they, us. We are blessed.

    When it is time for them to go, we remember pain to the depth of our souls. Our hearts ache for just one more hour, one more day, forever. We were lucky. We were blessed again when you and Theresa came into our lives to help our boy, our Harry, into the next world. We will forever hold you in our hearts for the blessing you brought us; your love, your compassion, your kindness in holding our hearts while we fell apart.


  • Wow! Dr. Soucheray and her assistant are so wonderful. Thank you so so much. I totally recommend her services! They were professional, compassionate, and flexible.

    Elizabeth T, Facebook Review
  • Dr. Soucheray was our veterinarian during the final months of our 22-year-old cat's life. We deeply appreciated Dr. Soucheray's expertise in geriatric pet care. Her guidance helped us understand what to be concerned about in caring for an older pet, and perhaps more importantly, what not to worry about. In the end, we asked Dr. Soucheray to euthanize our beloved kitty. Saying goodbye was heartbreaking, but the euthanization itself couldn't have been handled more beautifully. Dr. Soucheray made one of life's most difficult days respectful and loving and peaceful. I couldn't recommend her more highly.

    Facebook Review
  • “Dr Soucheray, thank you and Theresa for your thoughtful condolence card. Diane and I have had many pets over our 48 years together and outlived all of them. We loved them all. We have never in all of this time received such a beautiful, heartfelt card from any veterinarian like the card we received.
    Diane, Maria and I thank you very much for the compassionate service that you provided to us….

    I will be forever grateful for the care that you provided.”

    Alan, Client of Dr. Soucheray's
  • Greetings,

    I want to thank you again for the beautiful way in which you handled Penny’s passing. You were so kind and gentle with her. I especially appreciate the way you cared for her, and for our family, during the weeks before her death. We sometimes forget that they can’t be with us forever, and after 17 years, Penny has left an enormous hole in our hearts. But your respect for all of us made this very sad and difficult time a little easier. We feel she left this world with her grace, dignity and charm intact. And that is a gift.


    Thank you, again.


  • Dr Soucheray and Theresa,

    I wanted to thank you both for your compassion and and patience with us today.  Thank you for giving [our dog] the care he needed in such a caring and loving manner.  We are grateful for your service to us today.  We miss our boy so very much but know we loved him well and will cherish the many amazing memories he left us.  10 years of getting to love him and being unconditionally loved by that sweet boy will stay with us forever.  

    Again, thank you for everything


  • “Dr. Soucheray and Theresa provided a very thoughtful and peaceful in-home end to our cat's life yesterday. We were blown away by their compassion and empathy. While losing him was very difficult for us, we were so grateful to have veterinarians present that were so kind and supportive throughout the process. It was a wonderful experience.”

The forefront of at-home veterinary care

Sandra Soucheray, ’02 DVM, can treat three dogs in just one hour. She has spent the last three years driving across the Twin Cities to take care of dogs and cats at home. Soucheray worked in a clinic for 13 years before launching Dr. Soucheray’s At Home Veterinary Care, her own mobile practice. Now, she keeps all her equipment in her van and provides pet care in her clients’ homes. She has found that pets respond better to treatment in their natural environment—some don’t even have to leave their bed. 

“A lot of pets don’t like traveling in cars,” says Soucheray. And for many pets, hospitals and clinics can be overstimulating. Soucheray and her mobile team often end up offering their services to clients whose pets are long overdue for a vet appointment. Soucheray’s mobile service includes vaccinations, evaluations, blood work, treatments for many illnesses, and behavior and nutrition control. Being inside homes often gives Soucheray the opportunity to see how changing an animal’s environment can help with managing behavioral issues or illnesses such as osteoarthritis.

The at-home approach also offers clients a more comfortable setting for end-of-life care. This year, Soucheray was one of 62 veterinarians around the world who were the first to be certified in hospice and palliative care by the International Association for Animal Hospice and Palliative Care. 

When Soucheray worked in a clinic, she tried to give families as much time and space as they needed during euthanasia procedures, but now she can offer families a more personal experience. Many families opt to have their pet sedated in their favorite place outside while saying goodbyes. 

Featured in Local News!

Recently, Dr. Soucheray’s at Home Veterinary Care was featured in a local circulating newspaper.  The article can be found online at Mobile vet makes pets feel at home- fur real!

Molly the yellow Lab, of North Oaks, sat as still as she could while veterinarian Dr. Sandra Soucheray, of Shoreview, examined her ears.

“It’s a little red in there,” Soucheray noted as Molly sat comfortably on the floor in her own home.

Molly received a one-time ear infection treatment that is new to the market. “I call it the magic pill,” said her owner, Bruce Carlson, who has seen the treatment be successful before.

Soucheray and her vet technician, Theresa Miniscalco, also gave Molly, Georgie and their brother Cooper the poodle vaccines and drew blood to check for heartworm. They also had a general checkup. Cooper, 13, is aging and has been experiencing anxiety, perhaps due to his vision being affected in dim light. There’s a treatment for that, Soucheray said. She didn’t recommend medication right away, but instead recommended a pheromone collar or thunder jacket.

“It’s like a baby being swaddled,” Soucheray said, who has been seeing Cooper since he was a baby. She has cared for the Carlsons’ pets since she worked at a brick-and-mortar clinic.

Carlson said having a mobile vet is much more convenient and saves time. “One hour, three dogs — try to do that and go to the vet and come home,” Carlson said as Soucheray and Miniscalco wrapped up their work. The veterinarian will even visit his pets at his office in the North Oaks strip mall if needed, he added.

Soucheray has been driving across the Twin Cities to take care of dogs and cats at home for 

three years now. She worked in a clinic for 13 years before launching her own mobile practice, Dr. Soucheray’s At Home Veterinary Care. She keeps all her equipment in her van and provides care in the pet’s home. No exam table is needed; pets respond better to treatment in their natural environment — the floor or even their pet bed.

She became familiar with mobile vet service while working for one in Minneapolis before she attended veterinarian school. She thought the service helped pets be more comfortable and after working as a veterinarian in both clinic and home settings, she can attest to it.

“A lot of pets don’t like traveling in cars,” she noted. Hospitals and clinics also have odd smells, weird noises and pets have the potential to catch illnesses from sick animals.

A cat belonging to one of her clients hadn’t been to a vet for years before seeing Soucheray because it was so difficult to take the animal to the clinic. The mobile vet and technician were able to easily relieve the cat of urinary issues caused by severe hair matting, Miniscalco said. They don’t judge if an animal hasn’t been to the vet — they are just there to offer help.

Being inside homes also gives the duo opportunities to see how changing the animal’s environment could help it manage a behavioral issue or illness, such as osteoarthritis. Soucheray’s mobile service includes vaccines, evaluations, blood work, treatment for many illnesses, behavior and nutrition control, and hospice and palliative care. She refers clients to a nearby hospital she recommends for surgeries.

Being a veterinarian requires not only animal skills and medical knowledge but people skills, too, since pets can’t tell vets about their symptoms.

“It’s a little bit like being a pediatrician,” Soucheray noted.

One of her specialties is in-home euthanasia. Working at a clinic, she always tried to give families as much time and space as they needed, but with her own mobile practice she is now able to offer families a more personal experience. For example, families can have their pet sedated in their favorite place outside while the family says goodbye.

This year, Soucheray was among one of 62 veterinarians around the world who were the first to be certified in hospice and palliative care by the International Animal Association of Hospice and Palliative Care. The certification included courses, papers, a conference and an exam.

Soucheray graduated from the University of Minnesota College of Veterinary Medicine in 2002. She received her bachelor’s degree in art and history and worked for the Minnesota Timberwolves as an administrative assistant in the sales and marketing department before deciding to go to veterinarian school. She had to take three years of undergraduate science classes before attending veterinarian school. She’s also the owner of two yellow Labs.

Miniscalco always knew she wanted to work with animals. She received a bachelor’s degree in animal science and went on to receive a veterinarian technician degree. She has worked in the industry for 12 years. She and Soucheray worked together at a clinic previously. She’s like a nurse — she gives injections, draws blood and manages bookkeeping. She has a cat, a pug and a black Lab.

Soucheray’s prices are comparable to a clinic, slightly more in some cases. An additional $100 house call fee includes up to four pets. She also has an online pharmacy and supply store where owners can purchase prescribed items. For more information, visit”

The Physical and Mental Health Benefits of Having Pets

Pet owners believe that their lives are enriched by owning a pet, but did you know even the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) suggests that having a pet is good for you? Pet ownership and companionship can prevent you from feeling lonely, give you more opportunities for socialization, and give you a sense of love and pride from taking such good care of your pet. In fact, just petting your dog or cat can immediately lower your stress level!
