San Bernardino launches mobile vet clinic

San Bernardino to launch mobile vet clinic

San Bernardino is preparing to launch its new Mobile Veterinary Clinic thanks to a $1.1 million grant from the San Manuel Band of Mission Indians. A ribbon cutting ceremony was planned for Feb. 20, but has been postponed due to weather.

The new Mobile Veterinary Clinic will allow the San Bernardino Animal Services Department to travel throughout the City to parks, community centers, and other locations to conduct spay and neuter procedures, vaccinations, and microchipping clinics.

“The Mobile Clinic represents a proactive approach to pet care, making pet care more accessible for all members of our community, said San Bernardino Animal Services Director Kris Watson.

Reaching residents who may face challenges in accessing or affording traditional veterinary services was one of the driving forces behind the Mobile Veterinary Clinic.

 “Residents have been asking us to add a mobile clinic to our Animal Services Department for a long time,” said San Bernardino Mayor Helen Tran. “We are grateful to the San Manuel Band of Mission Indians for making this possible.”
