When our roommate adopted a dog from the SPCA, we took our twelve year old greyhound for a checkup. Its difficult to find insurance for senior pets and since he its healthy we got a wellness plan that includes heart worm and flea meds. one of his paws got infected and we had too take him to emergency vet. We followed up at Petsmart the next day. They provided excellent treatment and didn't run a bunch of expensive tests. Our checkups since then have been free. Prospero has made friends with many of the staff.
