Subsidized Veterinary Care
The Downtown Animal Care Center
A for-profit veterinary hospital which provides low-cost veterinarian care to the general public. The Center works in conjunction with the Downtown Animal Care Foundation, which provides funding in the form of matching funds and grants to assist low income families in getting the veterinary care they need for their pets and to provide care for stray, abandoned or relinquished animals.
CSU Veterinary Teaching Hospital
Low-Income Veterinary Care Assistance
The vision of the CSU Veterinary Teaching Hospital is to advance medicine by integrating world-class patient care with leadership in veterinary education and scientific discovery. The mission of the hospital is to educate the next generation of veterinarians by providing exceptional veterinary care and service to the community every day.
Your animal will receive care from a team of current leaders in veterinary medicine and the next generation of veterinarians. Providing the leading-edge technology, education, and research for the future of veterinary medicine and your animal requires significant resources, both human and financial.
These resource requirements, combined with Colorado competition statutes, make it unfeasible for the CSU VTH to provide free or below-cost veterinary care. We encourage those in need of financial assistance to discuss this with their VTH veterinarian and work with the VTH Client Services to pursue CSU VTH-based financial assistance. We have provided a list of low-cost veterinary care providers if care at the VTH is not a possibility. ©2013 Dumb Friends League
CSU Veterinary Teaching Hospital Care Credit Programs
CareCredit is a personal line of credit for healthcare treatments for your pet. It is a credit card, but it has some terms advantages if you are timely in your payments and pay off your balance in the agreed timeframe. You must apply and qualify prior to receiving care.
