Now offering low-cost dental services
Infected gums and rotted teeth cause great suffering in pets and regular dental care and maintenance is a necessity. Dental procedures for pets can be very expensive. But we're here to help.
The Humane Society of Southern Arizona’s Clinic has expanded our Wellness Program services to include many essential and life-saving dental care options for pets. The Wellness Program works to serve households that may be struggling to afford veterinary care in these difficult times. Dental procedures offered by the HSSA Clinic include dental exams and x-rays, cleanings, bloodwork, and much more, and are available for everyone, regardless of income.
Please call the Humane Society of Southern Arizona Clinic to learn more about eligibility and to schedule your pre-dental appointment. Please call 520-881-0321 and we will get back to you as soon as possible!
All pets are required to have a pre-dental exam and pets over the age of 5 will require lab work prior to receiving dental services. At this time, our veterinary team will go over any information that you will need to be aware of before signing off and scheduling your pet's dental appointment.
Please bring your cats in a secure carrier. Cats can escape easily if not properly contained. It is best to bring multiple cats in individual carriers. If you do not have multiple carriers, for your convenience we offer sturdy cardboard cat carriers for $8.
Dogs must be on a leash or in a carrier at all times, even puppies.
For more information, contact our Clinic at (520) 881-0321.
How much does it cost?
Pre-dental exam cost is $15 and helps HSSA Veterinary team determine the level of care needed for a patient and allows us to give them a more accurate estimate of care.
HSSA's Income-based Wellness Clinic
HSSA’s donor-subsidized veterinary clinic plays a crucial role in ensuring pets stay healthy, with their families, and not surrendered to a shelter for lack of health care.
All wellness services are by appointment only. We do not see walk-in appointments, and urgent care cases should be seen by a local emergency clinic.
Please call 520-881-0321 to schedule an appointment.
The Humane Society of Southern Arizona provides affordable, quality veterinary care for your dogs and cats. Our clean, modern facility has everything you need for a pet’s lifetime from basic vaccinations and wellness care to a range of diagnostic and therapeutic veterinary services. Our pharmacy offers many affordable medications, supplements and preventatives.
At HSSA, we understand how much your pet means to you and we know that financial resources can be limited. HSSA veterinarians practice “spectrum of care” medicine, which means we work with you to navigate the wide range of care options to determine the best course of action, specifically tailored to you and your pet’s situation.
As a nonprofit striving to serve our community, we strive to keep our prices as low as possible and our payment options as flexible as possible. We are committed to working with you to meet the needs of your pet in situations of financial hardship. Our doctors and our staff can help connect you with financial resources, including subsidized pricing and utilization of grant funding when available.
