Southern California Veterinary Medical Association supports Free Dog Clinic

On Sunday, we ran another free dog clinic, this time for the families with dogs living in 90011, an area much like Watts where our last clinic was located.  Lots of families waked to Gilbert Lindsay Park to get their dogs spayed/neutered, vaccinated and micro chipped.  From 9Am to 11Am the SCVMA volunteer veterinarians vaccinated and micro chipped over 100 dogs and puppies.

This is the second event that they have come out to and donated their time.  For many of our families, this is the first time their pet has been examined by a veterinarian.  For many, this was their dogs first set of vaccines.

Thanks to all of you who donated Frontline on our Amazon Wish List, we were able to apply flea + tick treatment to most all of the dogs.  Many families came for the vaccines only but when given the benefits of spay/neuter, agreed to get their dogs done, all free of charge.  Others made appointments for a future date, the mobile clinic is at the park twice a month.  Others needed more time to think about it and that’s OK.  We believe that many families never get accurate information about pet care and when given resources, they chose to spay/neuter their family pets.

All puppies were wormed and can come back next month to get their next set of vaccines, free of charge.  We met many families who came with the whole family, mom, dad, the children, even grandma and grandpa, with two, three, as many as four and five dogs.  We set no limit of pets that one family could bring to the clinic.  We welcomed everyone.

Every family went home with a bag of dog food, collars and leashes and more goodies.  We want to thank the staff at Gilbert Lindsay Park for welcoming us to their park.  We will back next month with plans to do three more clinics in 2015.
