  1. Best of luck to you but I have to be honest, there is no way I would have my dog or cat altered in a mobile clinic. Wouldn’t it be more beneficial if the foundation subsidized spay/neuter surgeries at real vet clinics? I imagine that without the up keep of those vans they could take care of a lot more pets for people who can’t otherwise afford the surgery.

    1. That’s a good point. I’m not an expert in how their mobile clinics work, who is staffing them, their equipment, etc. It seems like the mobile clinics might be good to reach places where there isn’t access to good local clinic resources, but it’s really going to come down to the quality of the resources they are providing there. Not sure what the costs look like to simply subsidize existing clinics. If the mobile clinics work properly, they are effectively increasing the total number of all clinics that offer this service, which could be good. Again, I am not sure of the specifics. Their end goal seems to be to eventually provide free spay/neuter services nationwide; I would have to imagine that it would be more economical to offer to subsidize visits to existing clinics as a part of that, rather than trying to completely displace those clinics with the mobile ones. You’ve certainly got my mind cooking on the details!


      1. We had Storm spayed the summer before last. We actually took her to a repro vet. Let me tell you, that was just the BEST. She was older and had zero side effects from the spay. The vet uses the latest methods for anesthesia and for spay. So despite having to drive 1 hour 15 minutes each way and being a bit more expensive than conventional spay, it was worth it.
