How to Save Money at San Dimas 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.

This is a super cool 50's style standalone building in the most beautiful part of San Dimas. It's right off the freeway in a lush residential area. Dr Singh, his colleagues and staff are lovely. We're always greeted with a smile and an incredibly warm welcome. I love this hospital because it feels like friends. The prices are reasonable, it has a wonderful little private parking lot, and I never have to wait very long. It's so worth the 13-mile drive to get there. Thank you San dimas animal hospital and Bella, Carmela, Licorice and Baker also send their love.💕🐾 ~Bryan Dorsey Duarte, CA 91010

This was our very 1st time visiting and it was so pleasant. We didn't wait long to be called into a room and once in the room Dr was in shorty. Dr. Singh was great, listened to all of our concerns. He took his time with our cat. This will most definitely be our new clinic/hospital for now on. Thank you to all the staff who were so sweet and caring. From the Family of Pumpkin and Spice cats 🐈 🐈

Lolli, our 13 year old Huskador, passed away on Sept. 8th, 2023. We had a big scare with her a few years back and nearly lost her. Dr. Singh got her threw it and she bounced back. Sady, this time her age caught up to her. Thank you Dr. Singh and your staff for taking care of Lolli for 13 years. You are a good man! God Bless you.

This review has been a long time coming. San Dimas Animal hospital misdiagnosed all three of my dogs. One died, one almost died and one is dying. I cannot express the sadness and anger I feel. My first dog was a puppy. She was sick and they were never able to tell me what was wrong with her. All they ever did is ask for more testing, more money, and "guessing" games where we would try different medications to see if they worked. She barely lived a year before she died. My senior dog has been seen by them a lot. The last time I opted for surgery, I told them to remove a teet that was leaking fluid while they cleaned her teeth. I wanted a biopsy of said teet. They didn't remove it. They did an entirely different surgery and removed the wrong teet. Now the teet I was worried about is growing exponentially and it's most likely a tumor. She is in so much pain an the tumor looks horrid. It is likely cancerous now. I cannot post a photo because Yelp will remove it. How do you remove the wrong thing and do an entirely different surgery that costs ten times more? Greed. They don't care about your animals. My third almost died. I brought her in with concerns she may have eaten something. They did an X-ray and said they didn't see anything and she needed additional testing that cost $800+. They gave me a bunch of medicine and sent me home. She got worse. I ended up taking her to an emergency vet that saw a sock on the X-ray and she needed immediate surgery to save her life. I think if this had been a one time thing, I wouldn't have made a stink about it. The fact they have failed three of my dogs tells me they don't care. Dr. Singh doesn't stop talking about irrelevant things while checking your dog. He just chats away and doesn't check animals thoroughly. You can't even ask questions because he just chats and chats. The office staff is great and never had a problem with them. I appreciate all they do.

This place is a great low cost option for your pet. We too our fur baby here as he has a UTI. They did a a quick evaluation and weren’t really pushy with selling procedures. Really listened and helped out. I’d recommend these folks if you don’t want to get scammed and guilt tripped
