You can now let us know you have arrived or are on your way WITHOUT an APP appointment with the new FREE CheckN APP. Using CheckN we can even chat about your case while you are waiting at the Vet Mobile or are on your way so our vets know the details in advance of your pet even getting seen. Read the details below.
The Low Cost Vet Mobile program is made possible by several non-profit, charitable organizations. Our prices are structured to be 50% or lower than New York area market prices. We strongly recommend that you read this entire home page and our Message from Administration page, especially the Policy Guidelines and Code of Conduct at the bottom of the Message from our Admin page, so that you know our prices, policies, what services we provide, how we process each case, and how to reduce or eliminate your waiting time. Our days/locations are at the bottom of this page.
The Low Cost Vet Mobile's team of 9 veterinarians consisting of 3 surgeons, 4 clinicians, and 2 sonogram specialist veterinarians, have thus far treated over 40,000 dogs and cats and performed over 1,000 major surgeries in our first ten years, not even counting spays and neuters. Our state of the art services include digital x rays, ultrasound, echocardiogram, hospitalization with 24 hr monitoring, oxygen therapy, blood transfusion, cryosurgery, chemotherapy, allergy testing, and most specialized surgeries, including orthopaedics.
Full examinations cost only $25, re-visits for the same issue within 12 months cost $15, one year vaccines just $20-$35, TWO digital x rays for just $95, top-of-the-line FULL blood panel including urinalysis and BOTH Thyroid tests for only $120, state of the art ultrasonic dental cleaning including anesthesia for just $350 (plus IV catheter [$50] and IV Fluids [$50] for 5 years or older animals), abdominal ultrasound for $350, echocardiogram for $375, FULL allergy testing at a specialized laboratory for just $295, hospitalization for only $50 per day, IV Fluids for $50 per day, urinalysis for $60, fecal test for Hookworm, Whipworm, Roundworm, Tapeworm including Coccidia and Giardia for just $60, to name a few common services.
We arrive between 9:00 - 9:30 AM, but people start to sign in by 7:30 AM. You may arrive at anytime during the day, but we may close the sign-in list if too many people come. We recommend that you arrive as early as possible. You may sign in early, fill out our paperwork and hand it in and get your number. YOU MUST BE AT THE LOCATION WHEN THE VET MOBILE ARRIVES. If the number you are assigned is too far down the list, you may leave and return without losing your turn ! You can check our REAL TIME COUNTER on VET MOBILE WEBCAM #14 for up to the minute tracking of what number patient we are up to, or you can call 718 544 PETS. This way you can come just at the right time so you don't wait long when you return. We WILL see everyone who signs in, hands in our paperwork, and is assigned a number.
The way to avoid the usual long waiting time when you walk-in without an appointment, is to make an appointment with our "Low Cost Vet" APP, which you can download to your phone from Google and Apple stores with the above links. APP appointments are ONLY for exams, not surgery or dentistry. The App charges $20 for appointments which is non-refundable, but the appointment can be re-scheduled up to 72 hours prior to the appointment time.
WE ARE NOT TRAVELING TO ALL THE BOROS FOR THE FORESEEABLE FUTURE DUE TO COVID-19.

Emergencies, post visit blood draws, drop offs of urine or stool, post surgery suture and staple removals, pick up of medicines, nail trims, spay neuter and other surgery pre-payments, dentistry, blood transfusion, ultrasound, and other booking pre-payments do NOT have to sign in or wait through our usually long line.

Waiting time may be long so please dress yourself and your pet accordingly. Credit/debit cards and the two payment plans, Care Credit and ScratchPay, are accepted.
