Have you heard about the VetBus, a mobile veterinarian clinic?
Dr. Vera Heidolph, DVM fulfilled a vision by launching the VetBus in April of this year with the goal of providing affordable spays, neuters, dentals, general surgery and medicine to rescue organizations and pet owners throughout San Diego County.
I have toured Dr. Vera’s state-of-the-art custom-built 33 foot mobile clinic and it and Dr. Vera are very impressive. The VetBus is equipped with a double sterile surgery suite, a dental suite with digital dental x-rays, and housing for dozens of cats and dogs while they await treatment or recover from their procedures.
With the hope of making a day in Coronado a weekly event, the VetBus is scheduled to be outside of the Coronado Animal Care Facility (ACF) this Thursday, 07/19/12 from 9:00am to 4:00pm.
Although Dr. Vera and her technicians will be seeing seven animals from the ACF this Thursday, she welcomes anyone who wants to bring their animal in for a check up.
To bring your pet in to see Dr. Vera this Thursday, you can either call her at (760) 230-6040 to make an appointment or you can stop that day as a walk-in.
This is the start of something really great for the pets in Coronado and the surrounding communities!

This pint-size little dog is one who will keep you company and love you unconditionally. He's a natural at making you feel special and attended to.
Come to meet him and let his soulful eyes show you his commitment to making your life a better place.
Luna is a female Tortoiseshell kitten, born in the middle of May. As a baby, she was found under the hood of a car.

This beautiful kitten is ready and willing to start her new life as a loved member of a new family.
