Vet offers reduced cost pet care in April


This just in from South Putnam Animal Hospital: In Honor of National Pet Week (May 2-8), South Putnam Animal Hospital is sponsoring a month-long program that will provide reduced cost veterinary care for animals whose owners are in financial need.
The Pet-Aid Program will be held on a weekly basis at South Putnam Animal Hospital, 230B Baldwin Place Road, Mahopac NY. Pet-Aid appointments will be seen by Dr. Kathi Heiber and staff on Wednesday afternoons between 2 and 4 p.m. for the month of April.

This program is intended for pets who have health concerns or are in need of preventative care, it is not intended for those pets in need of emergency care.

The Pet-Aid program is by appointment only; please call in advance as these appointments are limited. Please specify that you need a Pet-Aid appointment so the appropriate appointment is made for you. Bring any previous medical records and vaccine history with you to your pet’s appointment. Please arrive 15 minutes before your appointment time to fill out registration forms on you and your pet(s).

The fee for a Pet-Aid Physical Exam is $15. Any needed out-patient services done at the time of the Pet-Aid appointment will be at 50% reduced fees. Pharmacy items (including heartworm prevention and flea and tick control medicine) for examined pets will be at our regular fees – many of which are comparable to internet prices. Payment is due at the time of services. Cash, visa, MasterCard or debit cards are accepted.

Call 845-628-1834, to schedule your Pet-Aid appointment.
