We believe the love, companionship and health benefits of having a pet is something everyone deserves to experience. We also believe every pet deserves a vet to help it live a healthy, pain-free life. Our wellness business is designed to prevent the surrender of the beloved pet to a shelter because of costly medical conditions that can be easily prevented or treated.
We provide affordable, non-emergency, basic veterinary care for pet owners who can’t afford those services elsewhere. For just $40, a pet gets a thorough examination by our veterinarian, core vaccines (rabies, distemper/parvo for dogs and FVRCP for cats), and a general dewormer. There is an additional cost for other vaccinations, medications and services. For the 2 puppy and kitten booster visits following your initial wellness visit, the fee is $20 per visit. If your pet is not yet spayed or neutered, we will schedule your pet for surgery for a reduced fee.
To be eligible, your family’s total household income must be at or below 200% of the federal poverty guidelines or you must have other extraordinary circumstances warranting financial assistance.
