Low-Cost Veterinary Care for Pet Owners in the Sunbury, PA Area

We all love our pets, but sometimes when cash is low, taking care of our furry friends can be a bit difficult. For example, many owners avoid spaying and neutering because of the cost, but this can lead to problems with the pet’s reproductive systems later in life. This is why it can be very useful to find a vet that can help your pet and also work with you in the process.

Sunbury Animal Hospital

When you’re on a fixed income as a result of retirement, it’s not always easy to suddenly need veterinary care, especially if you have several pets. Fortunately, Sunbury Animal Hospital offers discounts for seniors and active military personnel, which can really take some of the edge off of your vet bill. The Sunbury Animal Hospital can be reached at 570-286-5131.

Beckoning Cat Project

Based in Williamsport, PA, the Beckoning Cat Project aims to provide low-cost spay and neuter procedures for cats. One of the best features of this project is that you can bring in feral cats to receive the procedure. This helps control the pet population because the feral community won’t be able to produce such an overabundance of kittens. In fact, you can expect to spend about $45 per cat, but you’ll have to pay an additional, but reasonable $12 for a rabies vaccine. They can be reached at 570-505-1473.

Hello. My eight-year-old neutered male domestic shorthair rescue has what I believe is kidney stone (s). He had several weeks of scant, bloody urine, many times in the tub or in the floor. He swelled up, but never really stopped eating or drinking. It seems as though he "passed" that stone, but I wonder whether I should be being proactive with some sort of treatment while he's well?

Jessamyn, I'm really not sure. You should talk to a vet! I'm sorry he is sick. -Riley

Within this last year, I heartbreakingly lost 4 animals in a 9 month span I was in such a bad state of depression, that my fiance thought it best to get me 2 more puppies to cheer me up. 1 I've had for a year now and our newest addition is only 5 months old but we've been struck with bad finances and only barely living on 1 income. Both of our babies need up to date shots n the newest addition needs to be fixed what I'm asking is, where can I get help with the shots & the one being fixed??? I'd APPRECIATE ALL THE HELP I CAN GET❣️❣️❣️
