about this business

Idyllic Paws isa house call veterinary practice empowering busy, clinic-weary, and homebound pet owners in the Des Moines metro area. Idyllic Paws specializes in a proactive, integrative, holistic approach to animal health and wellness. A house call-based practice provides the best opportunity for me to truly get to know my patients (and their people) by seeing them in their home environments. My focus is on personalized wellness plans and disease management through species-appropriate nutrition, safe, effective supplements and therapies, and other complementary wellness practices that support the frame, organ systems, and a balanced immune system. Much of what I do is educating my clients so they can make informed choices, remove lifestyle obstacles to health, and provide the best care for their current animal companions and all the ones they will ever care for.

  • As soon as Dr. Franchesca was in practice, she became our vet of choice, for several reasons; Her home visits, values/ perspective, skills/ insight, and her compassionate interaction. Having our 6 animals cared for in the comfort of our own home is a tremendous relief; essential especially for our cats, who showed zero signs of stress after being seen by Dr. Franchesca! Using only dietary measures and natural medicinal formulas, Dr. Franchesca has helped our allergy-prone pup feel vibrant again… He no longer has scratching fits and I’m sure he’s relieved to shed his cone! We have also seen Franchesca with her own dogs- how happy, healthy, and well-behaved they are. -- Anne Grace Des Moines, IA


    My 2 dogs love Dr. Z. She has helped make dietary changes for them that have made a big difference, and she truly cares about them. She took time to get a complete history of both dogs, and gave me a complete review and suggestions for all areas, many which I never thought of, and were certainly not suggested by my previous vet, who thought I was “out there” when it came to wanting natural approaches for my dogs. The fact that she comes to us is a real bonus! -- Paula Underwood West Des Moines, IA


    Why Idyllic Paws is perfect for our cat: •In home visits mean no more crying, stressed-out kitty on the way to the vet! •We strive for wholistic care for the humans in our family-how nice to find it for our pet. •Franchesca shines interacting with our pet, calming any fears, and even vaccinations were tolerated well. •Education for the owners! Franchesca gave us a detailed report on our cat’s health, diet suggestions, education about vaccinations, behavior and more. Call us AND our cat “happy” -


    Angela & John Tedesco Johnston, IA What a great service … I always struggle to get my animals to the vet – now the vet comes to me! The only thing that makes that even more perfect is that this vet cares for pets comprehensively. So ideal! -- Alexa McDowell Boone, IA
