How to Save Money at Morring Roy S DVM

Schedule Regular Vet Visits

One of the best ways to save on vet bills is to prevent expensive health issues before they develop. By scheduling regular wellness checkups, your vet can detect health issues early, helping you to avoid costly treatments and surgeries down the road.

Price Shop for Pet Prescriptions

Oftentimes our fur babies are prescribed human drugs off-label. Your vet is apt to charge more for these medications than you would pay at your local pharmacy. In fact, big-box or chain pharmacies can offer steep discounts. So it’s best to price shop.

Pet Insurance

Most pet insurance providers will pay between 80% and 90% of the vet bill. You can even get coverage for routine care and things like vaccinations and dental cleanings. If you do the math, you’ll most likely find that pet insurance makes financial sense in the long run as well as gives you peace of mind.

Getting to Know Your New Vet: Essential Questions to Ask

Choosing a new veterinarian is an important decision for any pet owner. You want to find someone who is competent, compassionate, and a good fit for you and your fur baby. To help you get the most out of your first appointment, here's a list of essential questions to ask your new vet:

Tell me about your experience with [pet type].

Different vets have different areas of specialization. Some are experts with cats, some dogs, some pocket pets, and some horses. Knowing that your vet has vast experience treating your specific type of pet can bring you peace of mind.

How do you handle emergencies?

You must know what to do in case of a pet medical emergency. Inquire what after-hours policy the clinic has, whether they have on-site emergency care available, and if they have a relationship with any nearby emergency animal hospitals.

How do you communicate with pet owners?

Good communication is key to building a trusting relationship with your vet. Ask how they prefer to communicate (phone calls, emails, online portal) and how often you can expect to hear from them.

Are there any breed-specific health concerns I should be aware of?

Some breeds are predisposed to certain health conditions. Knowing what to watch out for can help you catch problems early and get your pet the treatment they need.

Do you have any questions for me about my pet?

This is a great question to ask because the answer will show that the vet is interested in getting to know your pet as an individual and is willing to listen to your concerns.

Bonus question: Can I take a tour of your facility?

Getting a feel for the clinic's environment can help you and your pet feel more comfortable during your visits. Remember, you’re not just looking for a veterinarian, you’re looking for a partnership. Do not be afraid to ask these questions and any others you can think of. Any vet worth their salt will be happy to answer them. Because the more informed you are, the better equipped you'll be to make decisions about your pet's care! And that should be every vet’s top priority.

Took our new kitten Scratchy to Dr. Morring for a wellness checkup this morning. She was abandoned at our place of business. We took her home and saved her life - but Dr. Morring gave her the medicine to help with her sickness and other ailments. Because of him and his staff Scratchy is going to be a happy, healthy, playful kitty!! I cannot begin to tell you how wonderfully baby Scratchy was treated!! If she got scared they would give her a few minutes to relax. Dr. Morring was super gentle and extremely caring and sympathetic to all that little tiny Scratchy has been through. I can sleep sound tonight knowing that she is on her way to recovery and will be as normal as other kittens in no time at all!! As I’m typing this I’m crying. Thank you!! Thank you!! Thank you!! Thank you so much Dr. Morring and staff!! Thank you so much!! I love my Scratchy so much!! Thank you for loving and caring for her too!! Angels, all of you!! See ya in 2 weeks!! 🐱🐾🩷 here she is one week later.

Great vet and great staff. Very friendly. They definitely tried to help save our baby chick, our chick did end up passing away but they did what they could to help and were very affordable.

Dr. Morring is the "Animal Whisperer" if there is such a word...My cat is basically a feral cat...Dr. Morring talks to her and handles her without incident....she normal scratches or bites first and possibly shows you love second...the Dr. is great with animals.... I've never seen anything like it....He's good is all I can say.
