Houston SPCA opens new wellness clinic to keep animals happy and healthy

H-Town’s animal lovers already depend on the Houston SPCA to care for neglected, abandoned and abused animals, but now responsible pet owners can turn to the experts at the SPCA to care for their puppies, dogs, kittens and cats.

The newly opened Pet Wellness Clinic focuses on preventative care for pets, including regular exams, vaccinations, microchipping, and flea and heartworm prevention, all under the direction of Dr. Roberta Westbrook, Chief Wellness Officer animal and doctor of the Houston SPCA.

The walk-in clinic is open to the public and their pets from Thursday to Sunday, 10 a.m. to 5:30 p.m., and is closed Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday. Although this is primarily a walk-in clinic, the number of appointments available is limited.

The clinic is located on the Houston SPCA’s all-animal campus, directly behind the adoption center and adjacent to the rehoming and foster care centers at 900 Portway Dr.

Here are a few things to know before your visit:

  • The clinic currently only welcomes cats, kittens, dogs and puppies.
  • All dogs must be on a leash
  • All cats must be in a carrier
  • Veterinary services are not intended for injured or sick animals
  • Sterilization services are not currently available
