Central Oregonians love their pets and want to give them the best care, which is why vets with senior discounts are a huge blessing for the older adult population in the tri-county. Having a pet helps ease isolation and loneliness, especially for older adults who are homebound. 58% of Meals on Wheels clients live alone, and for many of them, their pet is their only consistent companion. Their pets provide social connections, which improves their mental and physical health. With many older adults living on fixed incomes, unexpected vet bills can cause financial hardship.

This list of veterinarians in Central Oregon who offer discounts to seniors can be a lifeline for older adults who need assistance providing their furry friends with veterinary care.
