Preventive veterinary care for pets can be expensive. With that in mind, students, alumni, and faculty from Cornell University’s College of Veterinary Medicine invite pet owners who are struggling financially to the first-ever Cornell Healthy Pet Clinic in Bronx.
October 8, 2011
Cats – 08:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.
Dogs – 02:00 p.m. to 06:00 p.m.
2 Castle Hill Avenue
Bronx, NY 10473
Pet owners are asked to enter the building through the side entrance fence. Pet visits will cost owners $20 per pet, and all proceeds will go to the YMCA. Owners will be required to present proof of rabies vaccination for all adult dogs and cats (animals over the age of one year).
Although walk-ins will be accommodated as possible, pet owners are strongly encouraged to make appointments. Call or send an e-mail message with times you are available. Please list the widest possible window of time to increase your likelihood of getting an appointment. Your appointment will be confirmed with a return email or call. If you do not hear back within 48 hours, please contact us again.
Healthy pet visits will include the following:
Full physical exam
Heartworm testing (dogs)
FeLV/FIV/heartworm testing (cats)
1-year supply of heartworm/flea preventative, basic worming medication
Referrals are available for spay/neuter services through the ASPCA.
Please note that this is a healthy pet clinic.
If your pet is suffering from an illness, we ask that you make an appointment with a local veterinarian, as we will not be able to diagnose or treat ill pets.
