Your pet is an important part of your family and you take their care very seriously. If you are looking for a new animal hospital you do not want to wait until there is an emergency to find one. It will be stressful enough being in an emergency situation, adding unfamiliar surrounding for both you and your pet will just make it worse.

Being the smart pet owner you are going to do your research and find the animal hospital that will be the best fit. Before you begin looking stop and think about the things that are important to you. The obvious is that you want the best medical care for your pet. But, there are other considerations as well. Having an animal hospital close to home may be important to you. The types of services provided will be important as well. In addition to caring for your pet when they are ill you will also want a good preventive program. Having an animal hospital that will send out reminders for when it is time for immunization shots and other preventative needs will be a big help in keeping your pet on track.

Does the animal hospital have a dental program? This has become a big deal in veterinary medicine. They have found that an animal's dental care can be as important as a human's when it comes to their overall health. It is believed that having the proper dental care can extend your pet's life up to five years longer.

You may like the idea of having pet products available at the animal hospital for your convenience, but not if the hospital is going to try and push those products on you. It is nice when you need a prescription to have them available on site. If your pet requires a special diet having the food available at the hospital may be convenient too. This is something that is a personal choice.

Before you make your final decision you may want to make a visit to the hospital for a tour. Call and make an appointment and be clear that you would like a tour. If possible you will want to take your pet with you so that you can see their reaction as well. You will want to watch how the staff interacts with your pet. Pay attention to the cleanliness of the hospital. With a little research and time you will find the animal hospital that is the perfect fit.

Free, Sustainable Animal Hospital

Yuriy Seretskiy has contributed $150,000 of his own money to get started on a free, sustainable animal hospital. There, surgeries will be performed on pets pro bono, replacing the system that at present is based entirely on whether or not the pet owner can pay for their pet’s bills.

The Problem

Every day, there are pets whose lives are hung in the balance over money. Imagine that: just because of money, because someone cannot afford to pay a bill, pets’ lives are being lost. This is the sad truth of the veterinary world right now. Often, the surgeries that our pets require can run between $8,000 and $15,000, a huge amount for just about anyone. To make matters even worse, these prices are going up instead of down. As the cost of living increases, as the cost of supplies increases, as the value of the dollar decreases, a surgery that once cost $8,000 may now cost in the low five figures.

The basic concept here is to establish sustainable commercial ventures in order to support Yuriy’s philanthropic efforts. This way, we can provide free surgery to any animals who are brought our way. There is actually a category on GoFundMe devoted solely to raising money for pet care with our animal hospital, we can clear these cases plus many, many others in the years that follow. Think about it: over a ten-year period, our veterinary surgeons will be performing around a quarter-billion dollars’ worth of surgeries.
