Veterinary Care Program

About our veterinary care program:

Our mission is to provide quality, low-cost veterinary services to our community; help families to keep their pets and community cats healthy; and avoid preventable euthanasia or medical neglect due to financial constraints. Our veterinary clinic helps to fund the care of homeless animals at our shelter. All services are provided by local veterinarians.

Wellness and Non-Urgent Sick Care

$35 Exam Fee

Our clinic offers basic preventative veterinary care services for your pet such as heartworm testing for dogs, ear cleaning, nail trims, flea treatment, microchipping and vaccines. We may also be able to assist with diagnosing and treatment of common illnesses such as eye, skin and ear infections, and sneezing with discharge. Wellness and basic sick appointments include a complete physical exam and diagnosis/recommendation (if your pet is sick) performed by a licensed veterinarian. The examination will assess your pet’s eyes, ears, mouth, skin, abdomen, heart, lungs and limbs. Vaccines, diagnostic testing and treatment medications are additional.

Dental Procedure $250

The Dental Procedure includes the cleaning and polishing of the teeth, and general anesthesia.

All pets are put under general anesthesia and closely monitored through the procedure.

This price does not include special sedation/catheter or medications and is for cats and dogs under 70 lbs.

Extraction/difficult fee: $50 – $100

Procedures requiring extractions may incur additional fees.

It is impossible to determine the number of extractions needed for the health of your pet until they are sedated and the teeth are cleaned. The surface of the tooth is often covered in plaque and build-up that prevents us from seeing the condition of the teeth at the time of the dental consultation.

Like our teeth, there are some that have multiple roots or are positioned in a more delicate area of the jaw. The condition of the teeth, how difficult they are to remove and how many are being removed, are all factors in the Extraction Fee listed above.

We do not have an X-ray machine and therefore cannot do any extractions that the veterinarian feels X-rays are necessary to remove safely. For the previous reason, we also cannot provide full mouth extractions

Special Sedation/Catheter $50

Propofol is milder and shorter acting. Catheterization is required so that we may administer as needed. It is used on a case-by-case basis determined by age, medical history and general condition of your pet.

Special Sedation may be opted by owner as well.

Pain Medication/Antibiotics $25

Pain medication and antibiotics are dispensed at the discretion of the Veterinarian.

Large and Giant Breed Dogs $50 Additional

Non-Urgent Procedures

Estimate Provided

We offer routine surgeries on a case-by-case basis and may require additional testing prior to scheduling. Such surgeries include: growth removal, basic eye surgeries, spay and neuter, and dentals. Our veterinarian will determine what type of procedure or additional tests your pet needs after giving them a physical evaluation during your examination. An examination is required prior to scheduling surgeries.

All senior pets, 7 years or older, require physical examination and preoperative blood work to help determine if they are healthy enough to undergo the procedure. Other testing or blood work may be required based on individual examination by veterinarian.
