Los Angeles, CA, May 10, 2016 – The Southern California Veterinarian Medical Association (SCVMA) has extended the time from five to seven days on their FREE veterinarian exam vouchers. Now, adopt a new pet from any of the six LA Animal Services shelters in the City of Los Angeles and you will have a week after the adoption date to take your new pet to a local participating SCVMA member veterinarian for a FREE exam.

SCVMA has also started a 1-800 call center to assist people outside of normal business hours to find a veterinarian and schedule the FREE examination.

“We are very excited about the new seven day FREE veterinary exam voucher that SCVMA members are providing for pets adopted from LA Animal Services. These vouchers give adopters a way to meet the veterinarian and ask questions during the wellness exam to see if that veterinarian is right for your new family member,” said Brenda Barnette, general manager of LA Animal Services.

All pets adopted from LA Animal Services are vaccinated, microchipped and spay/neutered before they go home. The FREE wellness exam voucher is another good benefit for people when they choose to adopt from a City animal shelter.
