How to Save Money at Eastside 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.

Every one here was great. Reception and all the techs. The problem was Dr. Curtis. She was hesitant to approach my dog from the moment she came in the room. The tech in the room Lura was great and seemed calm and fine w my dog. My 1 yr old dog has wart on her nose. All I wanted was the Dr to take a look and let me know my options for treatment. They muzzled her, went in the back and returned insisting that the dog was not a candidate for anything other than surgery because she would not let them easily touch the wart. When I mentioned azithromycin, a commonly prescribed antibiotic, the Dr had not heard of it being used for warts on dogs. Here is my take. This Dr. has been bitten and is scared of dogs. Understandable, but maybe work that out. Of course take precautions, use a muzzle if it makes you feel safer, its okay w me and my dog. But if you approach the dog from the 1st moment without eye contact and in fear, its not great. The techs, front desk people, everyone else there was able to approach and pet my dog. The Dr even suggested anti-anxiety meds for the dog if she was to return. As the tech was explaining this to me my dog was laying on the floor and wagging her tail for the tech. Anyone at this clinic doubt this, ask Lura. And I promise I am not a person w an aggressive dog who's in denial about it. The Dr might consider anti-anxiety meds for herself and working out her trauma around dogs.

We’ve been going to Dr. Goodenough with our two cats and dog since we moved back to Tucson and she’s just amazing. You can tell she genuinely cares about her patients and their owners. The appointments never feel rushed and we always leave confident our pets are in great hands.

I had a fantastic experience at this office! The office staff were highly capable professionals. They're the ones you have to trust will listen well and collect all the pertinent details, then convey them to the techs or vets. They made me feel at ease, it's great place, I highly recommend Eastside Pet Clinic.
