Houston SPCA opens new wellness clinic to keep pets happy and healthy
Animal lovers in H-Town already depend on the Houston SPCA to care for neglected, abandoned, and abused animals, but now responsible pet owners can turn to the SPCA experts for care of their puppies, dogs, kittens, and cats.
The newly opened Pet Wellness Clinic focuses on preventative care for owned pets, including regular exams, vaccinations, microchipping, and flea and heartworm prevention, all under the direction of Dr. Roberta Westbrook, chief animal welfare and medical officer for the Houston SPCA.
The walk-in clinic is open to the public and their pets Thursday through Sunday, 10 am-5:30 pm, and is closed on Mondays, Tuesdays, and Wednesdays. Although it is primarily a walk-in clinic, there are a limited number of appointments available.
The clinic is located on the Houston SPCA's Campus for All Animals, directly behind the Adoption Center and adjacent to the Rehoming and Foster Care Centers at 900 Portway Dr.
Here are some things to know before your visit:
- The clinic currently only serves cats, kittens, dogs, and puppies
- All dogs must be on a leash
- All cats must be in a carrier
- Veterinary services are not provided for injured or ill pets
- Spay or neuter services are not currently available
