Frequently Asked Questions From Des Moines Pet Owners

Q.

How much does a vet visit cost in Des Moines?

A.

Tests, Examinations, and Initial Veterinary Care in Des Moines, IA: Routine checkups $50 to $250, Spay/neuter: $160 to $220, Vaccines per shot: $15 to $28, Physical exams: $45 to $55, Fecal exam: $25 to $45, Heartworm test: $45 to $50, Dental cleaning: $70 to $400, Allergy testing: $195 to $300, Geriatric screening: $85 to $110.

Q.

What happens if you can’t afford a vet?

A.

If you can’t afford the vet, you risk not being able to provide critical medical care and potentially even forfeiture or euthanasia. Caring for a dog or cat is a serious responsibility. To protect yourself against the unexpected, please consider pet health insurance in Iowa. There’s also veterinary charitable grant programs you might be eligible for.

Q.

Can you just walk into a vet in Des Moines?

A.

It really depends on whether or not they’re already booked up for the day, and if the reason you’re “walking in” is an emergency. There are some clinics in Des Moines that specifically take walk-ins, but in general you should always call ahead. If they can’t take you, they might direct you to an animal ER.
