Many of us work in (or have worked in) some tried-and-true low cost and easy-access vet care settings, like spay-neuter clinics, MASH clinics, or non-profit preventive care clinics.

But what about less common models for delivering care? For-profit settings? Partnerships with traditional vet clinics or corporate clinics? Lots of other things I don't know about at all😉???

And beyond addressing the cost of care, are what other barriers have you seen addressed effectively -- like transportation to vet services, distance to a vet, or vet clinic hours?

Tell us about what you've seen, heard of, or done. We want to learn more about what works where in hopes of spreading great ideas farther and wider.

Thanks!

    You're not going to like my answer and will probably delete it, but I'm going to say something anyway.

    I run a cage free sanctuary for cats and kittens. On average, we have between 100 and 150 cats/Kittens of all ages. Discouraged and dissatisfied by the cost and results of traditional allopathic vet care, we have started using homeopathy and are very happy with the results.

    Remedies are extremely affordable ( a tube of 80 doses costs $8) and can be kept on site which minimizes issues with distance, transportation, and availability of a vet. Homeopathy is based on observation of symptoms rather than a clinical diagnosis, so treatment can be started at the first sign of illness rather than waiting until an animal can get to the vet. Most of the time, a remedy only needs to be given 2 or 3 times for the animal to return to health.

    Most importantly, we have been getting great results with homeopathy. Now we able to treat Minor ailments quickly, easily, effectively and affordably. I've also seen homeopathy facilitate some amazing cures in cases where the vets were having no success in treatment.

    A lot of people automatically dismiss homeopathy as fake medicine because our current science cannot explain how or why it works. I think that is due to the limitations of our current science rather than a failing of homeopathy and someday in the future we will understand it. Personally, I don't care about theory - I care about results and that is what we get using cell salts and homeopathy.
