How to Save Money at San Dimas 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.

I appreciate that this pet clinic took in my dog when I could not get an appointment elsewhere. However, I spent close to $700 and did not get good answers on what was going on with my dog. I went to a new location and within minutes the Vet knew what was going on and put my dog on a path to healing. I gave my dog medicine on the vets recommendation and my dog was not getting better. 1 day after going to a different vet office my dog is already looking and feeling better. I wish I could get my money back since nothing they provided helped.

Best pricing and very caring staff. Took my cat in and they did everything they could to help her. Unfortunately she's not going to get better... But they've made her last moments very comfortable and pain free. 100% recommended! They take walk ins or appointments for a cheaper price. Edit: They sent me a card after her passing at their clinic and I'm so happy they took the time to sent this to me. It even has hand written messages from the staff. I'll be going to this place for any other pet related stuff and have even recommending it to my friends and therapist

The staff at San Dimas Pet Clinic was very professional, knowledgeable and friendly. Luna came in as a same day appointment for an eye infection and was treated right away upon our arrival. The staff kept me updated in every step of her treatment and even took the time to show me how to properly administer her eye medicine. Luna was at ease, which is a good indication of how the staff treat the pets that come to their office. I highly recommend this clinic for your pet’s vet needs. Luna’s eye condition significantly improved within 24-48 hours of her treatment.

I only put one star because it's necessary to leave a review. But very unsatisfied with their service! I called in because my cat has fleas and the main reason why I brought him was to give him oral medication I called before to confirm. And they said they had it. So I take him in they charged me first only to tell me they didn't have that medication that it was expired and give me a prescription . As if it's that easy to find medicine for pets! SO DISAPPOINTING!!! #unreliable

The experience was wonderful! The doctor, technicians, and clerical staff were all very professional and did an excellent job of making our pet's diagnosis, medication, and payment plan clear. I love that the doctor allowed us to see our cat in the back after one night of his hospitalization. My 8-year old son missed our cat and it meant a lot to him to see our cat, though he wasn't yet going home. The doctor seemed very sensitive to the needs of our cat and understood our concerns. We had a great experience and will continue coming back to the clinic in the future! Thank you so much for taking care of Shadow!
