How It All Began

In September of 1993 Darcy dropped off her Bernese Mountain Dog, Ernie, at the neighborhood vet for an 'emergency' bath. When she picked him up, Dr Perl brought the dog out to her. As the story goes, there were birds chirping and stars twinkling above their heads, as the two chatted away for an hour or more. On their first date they took Ernie hiking in West Virginia. They were married by Christmas and Darcy moved Sol from Beltsville to Chevy Chase.

MyVetCalls Van Driving

Darcy had founded/created Poppins Playgroup which brought children together for preschool activities in their homes all over the metropolitan Washington DC area. It only seemed natural that since Darcy created the concept of 'housecalls for kids' that Sol should become "Housecalls for Pets Inc". After ten years and the first two of their own kids later, Darcy stopped running playgroups to raise the family and help Sol grow the vet business. Fast forward twenty years, our four kids are grown and doing amazing things and business is booming. We are now working to bring MyVetCalls to you, all over the country.

  • Thank you so much for so promptly sending the heartworm medicine for Bartleby and all of the excellent care you provide for him.

    —Allison.

  • Thank you for your compassionate care of Bitty during this difficult time. I am grateful for all you did for her, and especially grateful that she was at home at the end and for your kind help to me in dealing with this. I hope that you'll eventually hear from me again for a happier purpose.

    —Gregory

  • I wasn't able to find the right words to thank you when you brought Rowdy's remains back to us. Thank you for your kindness and compassion during the whole procedure and before talking on the phone with Mike in deciding what to do. As difficult as it was there was some comfort and peacefulness in letting Rowdy go in our own backyard by St Francis. A place he loved so much. We appreciate you hand delivering our special guy back to us.

    —Tanya

  • Thank you for sending the meds and for fielding my call about Rudy yesterday. So grateful for you.

    —Lyn

  • I wanted to let you know how blessed I feel to have had you as my vet in Cupid's final days. You were very supportive and showed both Cupid and myself compassion in making this hard decision. I really do feel it was because of you and your service that Cupid was so at ease and accepting when the time came. The only thing I wish I could change, would be having you as our veterinarian much sooner than the final few weeks.

    —Amy

  • Thank you so much for all of your practical, applicable surgical advise. I learned a lot of valuable techniques and appreciate you taking the time to impart some wisdom. It was nice working with you.

  • We want to thank you so much again for your compassion and the extraordinary gift of your time this morning to help Smokey leave us. You were kind to Smokey, Tigert and us. You epitomize the best of your profession and of humanity. Those who are fortunate enough to know you realize you are a gift. We are lucky to have found you.

    —Sally & Bill

  • Thank so much for helping us with Lulu. She's doing really well today. Vets are much nicer than MD's So maybe I'll switch Dr's and come to you! Thanks for recommending the specialist and being such an all around good guy.

    —Carolyn & Jim

  • I know I growl and carry on when you come over, but since your last visit I've been feeling grrrrreat! Thanks for everything! When I growl next time you stop by, I won't really mean it. You're the best

    —Otis
