The Society believes in responsible dog ownership. This means neutering your dog to ensure good health and prevent unwanted litters of puppies. It also means providing veterinary care when your dog requires it. Taking pet insurance will ensure peace of mind for any unexpected vet bills that may arise. The Society recommends Petplan insurance as a comprehensive insurer.
The Society provides neutering vouchers for dog owners on low incomes. The voucher is used towards the cost of neutering their dog at the local vet. The vet simply deducts £50 for male dogs and £75 for female dogs from the total bill. Please do not make arrangements with the vet until you have had notification that you have been accepted for the scheme.
Please note- The vouchers can not be used at PDSA Hospitals. This is only available in Scotland and a maximum of two vouchers only per household.
Veterinary Aid Scheme
If you find yourself with an unexpected vet bill that you are unable to cover due to low income we may be able to assist as part of our Veterinary Aid Scheme. All of the applications are assessed at our monthly Board meeting. We try to assist as many dogs as possible but there is no guaranteed payment. Please note this is not a substitute for insurance. For pet insurance why not try Petplan.
For more information on our schemes please contact the office on 0131 668 3633.
