Best vet for low-income people?

Postby zeropoint » Sat Nov 24, 2012 5:16 pm

Hi all--

I'm on SSDI and therefore very low-income. My cat needs his annual, and I also think he has a UTI so I want to get him checked out for that. (I've read a lot about home remedies for that, but since he's never presented with these symptoms before, I want to take him in for sure.)

I live on the near-east side but am willing to travel for good, affordable pet care.From what I've read, some vets will allow lower-cost vets to fill their prescriptions, but I haven't come across any vets with sliding scales or anything like that as far as the actual exam/shots go. It's probably just a pipe dream that they exist, but I thought it was worth a try.

Who would you recommend for really good care but without paying a ton?

A ton of what?
I suggest Bob's Leave Your Pet Here Taxidermy.

I don't have an answer for the OP but you could call the Dane County Humane Society, they can probably provide a few names.
The vet school or MATC's vet tech program might offer lower cost services. Animart behind East Towne has vet clinics, the schedule and services offered are on their website. My dog gets her vaccinations there.

Good luck!
