Some of the best places for low-cost vaccinations? Your local animal shelter. Harris County Pets Resource Center’s Wellness Clinic and Houston Humane Society Wellness Clinic both offer low cost vet services.

If you use a mobile vet, just know that you will need to keep track of all your vaccination records. Since you may see a different vet at each mobile clinic, your vet will not have a central record of your pet’s shots.

These are annual costs that you can plan for. And you can also purchase insurance that covers general wellness and any emergency vet care. Whatever vet option you choose for your pet, having pet insurance is a good idea for maintaining their health and happiness for many years to come.

Here are two clinics that veterinarians and rescues refer clients to for dog broken bones in Houston:
