Over the last several years, Our Companions has identified the growing need for people to have access to affordable veterinary care. Each year veterinary costs increase and many responsible pet owners who love their pet and want to do the right thing for their animal simply cannot afford the cost of basic health care.
Given this growing need, Our Companions will be expanding its current services to provide Pop -Up Veterinary Wellness clinics at our Valerie Friedman Program Center in Manchester. These clinics will provide full physical exams, vaccines, SNAP testing and blood work, if needed, parasite treatments and treatment for routine injuries and illnesses. Follow-up assistance for any surgical procedures will be provided through our current voucher program in cooperation with our veterinary partners throughout the state. These clinics will also integrate clients with our other services we offer including behavioral support, training, and food and pet care supply assistance.
Our goal today and in the future is to provide responsible pet owners with regular preventive care so we can keep families together and healthy. We believe that pet ownership should not be a privilege for the wealthy.
Thanks to the hard work of the volunteers, staff and of course the veterinary team who made this all possible, our first Clinic was a huge success. Below are some photos.
Our next one is scheduled for September. Contact us to learn more.
