How to Save Money at Continental Ranch Pet 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.

Brought my cat in yesterday for gi symptoms and lethargy. They only perform X-rays for imaging which is pretty standard for regular hour vet offices. One would think that the medical staff would become proficient at reading X-rays and discerning basic differences between fluid and gas. I was told my cats stomach “was full of gas and retained food”. However, upon discharge a few hours later he actually vomited a large foreign body. Foreign body was never discussed as a differential diagnosis. The doctor was preliminarily diagnosing my cat with chronic illness, liver disease/possible hyperthyroidism. Considering that foreign body ingestion by felines is not only somewhat common but can also be life threatening, I would hope that a veterinarian with nearly 10 years licensed and experienced would be able to discern such an issue. That wasn’t the case with our visit. I feel like coming here wasted precious valuable time that could have been better spent in proper care. Also, when referencing emergency care, she fear-mongered emergency care pricing. As a tucson resident and professional, know approx. prices of what you’re referring to, don’t exaggerate the price x4. Although this doctor seemed to also struggle with straightforward answers when questioned about the diagnosis/cause/prognosis of feline conditions. Definitely had an authoritative way of answering questions; she did not like me asking questions and even asked me, “what’s your background?” As if that was relative to the questions about my cat’s care. Since the focus was on a possible chronic illness (which later was ruled out), when inquiring about possible causes to such conditions, she relied heavily on gaslighting tactics in her answers. Denied diet could be contributing factor to chronic Illness as well (we have evidence in humans and animals that this is a factor). Maybe this place is okay for routine vaccinations and well visits, but if your pet is acutely sick, don’t waste your time here. You’ll leave with conflicting discharge instructions and end up spending more of your money elsewhere anyways.

Such a compassionate and caring team here! They helped me every step of the way and took extra time to make sure I was okay. My cat Kilo was sick and everyone at Continental Ranch Pet Clinic made sure that both she and I were happy and comfortable straight through to the end. They helped me by suggesting different funding sources and checked in on me after she was gone. They even sent me a bouquet for my loss.

My relative brought my dog in for a routine surgery for two teeth to be removed. Upon picking up the dog office personel told him they had also cut the nails. What they didn't mention was they cut them too short crushing 5 of the 10 front nails. It's been over two months and one of the nails is still red and black. Upon confronting the individuals months later I was told that the dog's nails just naturally changed color and is now black. Obviously that makes no sense because a dog's nail doesn't just naturally change color overnight espcially after they were just cut apparently too short. Not to mention four of the five healed and are now clear again mostly. He had all pure white clear nails before. The good news is the dog seems to be okay but obviously you think your customers are guillable to butcher their dog's nails and not tell them. To take things further to have the audacity upon being confronted try and save face making excuses. If you would just have told us from the start when I picked the dog up I wouldn't have been mad; but to try and conceal the fact that it happened and to not admit when confronted shows a clear lack of integrity and character. You must've seen the blood coming from the nails after you had cut them because there was multiple nails affected. I'm just letting you know that you haven't fooled me. Even if I were to give you the benefit of the doubt that it was just an honest mistake and you didn't notice you had damaged my property before returning him; the fact still remains the nails were cut too short and that's unnerving because you are performing surgery on dogs! If you can't even cut nails right why would I want you cutting open my dog? To top it all off that dog was not even brought in to have the nails clipped. He was brought in for oral surgery. Why would you be touching the nails? Whoever they were that cut those nails clearly didn't observe through my dog's clear nails that he has particularly long "quicks". They just indiscriminately chopped off my dog's nails while he was under anesthesia. I'll include a picture of the grinder tool so maybe you can buy one so you aren't hacking animals up. I had clearly observed this when I first went to cut my dog's nails, hence why I bought this tool long ago.

They treat our dog Freya with care and are very informative on what they think the best plan of action is for our dog every step of the way.

Amazing, caring staff. Great follow up when emailed a question. The vet herself called me and fully explained everything and answered all my questions. So glad a friend I work with recommended them! 😀
