How to Save Money at Adobe 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.

I had to make one of the hardest decisions I've ever had to make and euthanize my kitty. The doctor and staff were very kind, understanding and patient with me while I cried and said my goodbyes to my companion and best friend of 6 years. Chevy had a neurological disorder and relied on me for everything. He loved to snuggle and slept with me every night. He was the sweetest, most affectionate, loving cat I have ever known. My heart is broken and i miss him more than ever. I am grateful to everyone who was there that day for their support and compassion.

We moved over from Encina to Adobe not only because we could actually get an appointment but the people were super helpful on the phone, not the case with Encina! Adobe took great care of our Poodle and at 1/2 the cost!!!

Dr. Reens, Dr. Killian and the staff at Adobe Animal Hospital are phenomenal. My family has been taking our pets to them for years and we have always received caring and professional care that goes above and beyond what other veterinary clinics are willing to do. They have seen my dog for several last-minute and emergency appointments and have consulted with me over the phone when I have been unsure of what to do for my pet. It's clear that they truly care for the animals they serve. I wouldn't trust my pets at any other clinic. I've never had a veterinarian my dog is actually excited to see!! Thank you Adobe staff!

I have been a regular client of Adobe Animal hospital since they opened in the early 1980s and Dr Rheens was always very professional and caring for my cats, even going out of her way to care for them and help me with medical advice. Since she has retired however the practice has gone downhill and they do not offer the care they once did. Gone are the follow up calls and now they have started to add on unnecessary treatments to booster their fees. To make matters worse today while my kitten was being treated for a cut one of the technicians accused my cat of biting her and without checking his medical record gave him a rabies shot even though he had one last November through ARF where I adopted him. My kitten, who is just 11 months old is very shy and is not used to other people, he would never bite anyone. I am going to change vet.
