We are excited to be linked to VetStreet, as of October 21, 2012! By clicking on the Pet Portal icon on this web page, you can access your pet's records to view reminders, make requests for appointment (including grooming), boarding, or medication refills. You can print your pet's reminders. Educational pieces can be downloaded. You can send information updates to us, such as address or phone changes, or even a change in your email address. VetStreet can send you a text reminder on an appointment if you provide an eligible phone number. We feel this will offer an added service to you.
The Pet Project is a non-profit organization dedicated to keeping pets with the people who love them. They have a pet pantry that provides food to families who are experiencing financial difficulties, offer temporary housing for pets of battered women, deployed military and the homeless seeking refuge or medical care.
The Pet Project works with landlords to keep pets in their homes. They offer food, supplies and medical care to pets of the homeless. We accept donations for them in our office. For more information, go to http://thepetprojectmidwest.org/index.php. We cannot imagine what it would be like to have to give up a beloved pet if your circumstances suddenly changed. Could you?
