Lake Forest Animal Clinic Offering Low-Cost Pet Programs Designed to Give Back to the Community

LAKE FOREST, Calif., Oct. 09, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The Lake Forest Animal Clinic would like to make pet owners in the Orange County area aware of some special programs they are currently offering. They are especially designed to give back to the community and to increase the quality of life for pets.

Simply Spay and Neuter of OC was created by Lake Forest Animal Clinic to address the needs of pet owners looking for low cost spay and neuter services while maintaining the highest quality of pet healthcare possible. Surgical prices cover many facets of the spay and neuter procedure including a pre-surgical exam, IV fluids, anesthetic monitoring, thermal support, pain medication, and anesthetic recovery monitoring. Cat spaying for females is $100, and neutering for males is $60. Prices for dog spaying and neutering varies depending upon the size of the canine. Blood testing for pets is also highly recommended prior to undergoing surgery.

The Lake Forest Animal Clinic veterinarians recommend protecting your pet from a variety of diseases by adhering to a regular pet vaccination schedule in order to prevent the likelihood that they will become sick. They recognize that it can be challenging to budget all of your family’s expenses while still looking out for your pet’s best interests; therefore they offer a weekly low cost pet vaccine clinic. If you are a current client with pets that have been previously seen at Lake Forest Animal Clinic, you may take advantage of their Express Vaccine Clinic service. See LFAC website for details.

Vaccine services are available Saturdays from 1:00 pm to 4:00 pm at the clinic. Vaccines are provided on a first-come, first-served basis with no appointment necessary. Annual pet exams are also available at a reduced cost of $52; although exams are recommended, they are not required.

The dog vaccines offered include DHP for $10.00, which protects against distemper, parainfluenza and hepatitis. The Parvo vaccine is $10.00, which protects against a viral disease of the intestinal tract that can affect puppies. Dogs can also receive protection against kennel cough with a Bordetella vaccine for $17.00.

Low cost cat vaccines include FVRCP for $16.00, which protects against Feline Rhinotracheitis Virus, Panleukopenia and Calicivirus. The Feline Leukemia Virus vaccine is available for $24.00. Rabies vaccinations are also available for both dogs and cats for $14.00. A $4.00 hazardous waste fee for each pet vaccinated will be assessed and services under $60.00 must be paid in cash.

Melissa A. Byers, D.V.M., owner of Lake Forest Animal Clinic, says, “We are committed to supporting pet owners in giving the best quality of care possible to their pets at reasonable prices.”
