How to Save Money at Acoma Animal Clinic

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.

Absolutely wonderful place to bring your pets for all of their health care needs. I was able to get an appointment for my cat very quickly and have all her current needs addressed. The facility is very neat and clean throughout, and the staff are friendly, helpful, and knowledgeable. Fees are very reasonable, too. I'm very satisfied with my experience, and I highly recommend this place.

This vet is the only place my pet insurance covers. I've seen both vets here and they are very good. However I now have to find another vet because the price for lab work is $250-$350 and I can't afford it and my insurance doesn't carry it so I will be paying out of pocket. One of my cats was diagnosed with early kidney disease by a urinalysis but needs to be confirmed by a lab test. Im also not happy that they offer declawing here as it can severely disable a cat. If you need to get your cat declawed then don't own a cat.

Dr. Livingston is a wonderful veterinarian. I have been taking my pets to him for many years now. He is not only very knowledgeable in his field, he is also a caring, compassionate person. I also like that he takes the time to educate me as a pet- parent about various issues that affect my fury babies. I couldn't say enough positive things about him as a veterinarian. He is just a wonderful veterinarian. Infection, I like him so much that even after I moved to the Eastside of Tucson, I make the extra time to drive to the Northside so I can take my pets to him only.

Acoma has been our vet for years. We love the entire staff; caring, concerned, and competent. Our dogs Ziggy and Jobee are in good hands. I recommend them.

I brought my senior cat in who was suffering from a rash last week. Everyone in the clinic was kind and helpful. The vet was great and gave me a follow-up call to answer questions I had. Today Millicent is rash free. Thank you to all the ladies at Acoma!
