Second Chances Veterinary Care (SCVC) is an INDEPENDENTLY OWNED outpatient surgery, procedural and urgent care veterinary clinic. Our first mission is to provide no-nonsense veterinary care at affordable prices because pet owners deserve the chance to give their pet the care it needs…
Our second mission is to be a resource for a network of local general, ER, urgent care, and specialty veterinary practices for their clients that cannot afford the treatment plans presented to them. Each practice has its own unique costs of providing services, so understandably each needs to charge accordingly for their time, staff, inventory used, etc. Owners find that the cost of any given treatment plan can vary from one type of practice to another. At the root of our mission is to extend care to more pets in need while working with their family veterinarian.
We can help remove clinic-related barriers inhibiting pets from getting the care they need. SCVC's highly innovative practice model is designed to provide a practical SPECTRUM OF CARE by meeting pet owner's where they are financially.
