With the cooperation of veterinarians in the Toledo area, if you adopt a dog or cat from the Toledo Animal Rescue your new pet will be eligible for a free medical examination within ten (10) days from the adoption date. Be sure to take the new pet’s health records with you. This free check-up is a physical exam only. It does not include the administration of drugs by mouth or injection, stool examination, x-rays, or any surgical procedures. Please see the list of participating vets below. 

The Toledo Animal Rescue and the veterinarians are interested in the health of your new pet. That is why we urge you to take your pet for a thorough check-up. We do not knowingly release a sick animal. If the veterinarian’s exam reveals a serious illness, please bring the animal back to the Rescue immediately. If you choose to have the animal treated because of medical problems, you're responsible for the charges by the veterinarian. Proper documentation must be given to the veterinarian at the time your animal is presented for an examination along with the animal’s health records issued by Toledo Animal Rescue.

Vaccination against contagious diseases, such as distemper, parvovirus, hepatitis, cat enteritis, rabies, and others, that needlessly kill so many pets each year are available and should be given to your pet. A preventative shot is far cheaper and much more humane than long treatments for your sick and suffering pet. Ask your veterinarian about periodic booster shots for these vaccinations.

A stool sample is highly recommended to be taken to the veterinarians with you. This sample will be tested to determine the presence of internal parasites (worms). Worms are commonly found in puppies and kittens and are easily treated. Remember, the cost of this procedure is not covered by the free exam.

Heartworm is a parasite that is spread through mosquito bites. Most common in dogs, but also prevalent in cats, the heartworm, a long thread-like worm, lives in the arteries of the lungs and also in the right side of the heart of its host. Heartworm is extremely dangerous and not to be taken lightly. It is easily contracted and transmitted. Once in its host, the parasite rapidly multiplies and grows, invading the chambers on the right side of the heart and the arteries in the lungs. Treatment for heartworm disease can mean weeks of discomfort, and pets that go untreated will die.
