Kedron Valley Veterinary Clinic has a strong commitment to the animal community, working closely with a variety of programs:
Vermont Spay Neuter Incentive Program (VSNIP):
Vermont Spay Neuter Incentive Program (VSNIP) is a State-run program that provides spay and neuter services for low income pet owners. Kedron Valley Veterinary Clinic is a strong supporter of VSNIP, an important resource for pet owners in need. As a participating clinic, we provide low-cost spay and neuter services.
Vermont Institute of Natural Science:
Under Dr. Murrell, Kedron Valley Veterinary Clinic provided surgical and x-ray services for injured wild birds and the raptor residents at VINS. Due to advances in avian orthopedic treatments, most of VINS’ surgical needs are now met by specialists. However, KVVC continues to volunteer their x-ray services and Dr. Blakeley regularly provides consultations for the many raptors at VINS in addition to semi-annual exams for all of the Education Birds.
New England Falconry
Seeing the opportunity to work with more raptors, Dr. Blakeley contacted New England Falconry after they opened, to volunteer her services for their raptors. Her first patient was Rangle, a Harris Hawk, who sustained a fractured leg after being attacked by a wild turkey. Dr. Blakeley has been working with the raptors ever since, providing medical advice, x-rays, and health certificates for travel to other states.
Humane Society of the United States - Spayathon:
Dr. Philippa, always in search of warmer weather, has been traveling to Puerto Rico since 2018 to spend 10 days spaying and neutering the cats and dogs of this tropical island.
