5PetCheck assists pet owners facing financial hardships

Posted: Updated:

5PetCheck is coming back to southern Colorado and that is great news for pet owners facing tough financial times. As many pet owners know, veterinary expenses can be astronomical, and no one wants to decide between paying a bill or taking care of their pet. 5PetCheck is here to help.

Colorado Veterinary Medical Association member veterinarians have generously donated their time and opened their clinics to provide free wellness exams and rabies vaccinations to pet owners across the state who are facing economic adversity. The event not only helps give back to local communities, it provides an unparalleled opportunity to underscore the importance of preventive pet healthcare.

Here is how it works: During the newscasts on April 4, KOAA News 5 will announce an appointment hotline phone number. Once the number is announced pet owners will be able to schedule an appointment with CVMA veterinarians. The appointments will be set up for April 9th and 10th.

Participants will bring their pre-registered dogs and cats to a participating clinic for a basic physical exam and rabies vaccination. Veterinarians will also counsel pet owners on any additional veterinary care the animal may need (dentals, x-rays, blood work, etc).
