How to Save Money at Orange Grove Animal Hospital

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.

Affordable services for our rabbit and dogs. Will do their best to see your pets in an emergency. Euthanasia services are cheaper than most, and their caring professionals make the process easier. The doctors take the time to listen and follow-up to make sure your pet is better. Good experience every time so far. They take the Care Credit card which is a huge plus. First choice for our family pets.

Fantastic animal care from the initial call to the vet to the final exit from our appointment. All the staff was extremely helpful and kind. No wait time and very clean rooms. The owners Walter and Holly were fantastic towards my dog and went out of their way to make me feel comfortable with their practice. Wish I could give this vet more than 5 stars. Definitely found our new vet hospital.

We were taken in on time. Dr Spaulding is an excellent Vet. Peaches "our standard black poodle" seems to like her and her assistant. We were very satisfied with their services.

Cleen, inexpensive, well trained, easy, and recommend for "Tropical" animals/pocket pets. The moment we walked in, everyone was super friendly and the office was spotless. There were so many friendly customers who made me feel a lot better about having to put my pet down. In the short 30 minutes I was there, i saw a guy with live rattle snakes and an iguana (from Fish and Game), a pet snake, a tortoise, a rat (mine), and of course the regular cats and dogs. All for check ups. The vet who can take care of reptiles is a stellar vet in my opinion, if he is able to take on live rattlesnakes right in the office, with no issues whatsoever. The whole office impressed me with how safe it was, with each animal's needs. My poor rat had developed a tumor far into her adulthood (she was 3). It got to a point where she was just miserable. So it was time to get her out of her pain. I called around to so many places telling me that putting her down would be $80 to $150. I was very upset by this, because money is tight after another pet got sick recently. Orange Grove Animal Hospital was able to take care of my pet rat for $35. Which I was very grateful for. They made my rat feel safe and comfortable before taking her back, and the whole process was fast and easy. I will be coming back for any vet visits or emergency pet needs. 10/10 recommend.

We saw Dr. Gordon with my elderly cat. Usually my cat is easy going at the vet, but she seemed unusually stressed and uncomfortable with Dr. Gordon. It felt to me that Dr. Gordon was taking the easy/fast way of treatment versus actually caring for our needs. It felt very unprofessional, however we have had great experiences with other Vets and technicians at Orange Grove.
