Keeping Pets Happy and Healthy

Veterinary Clinic

Equitable access to veterinary care is something every community needs to ensure happy, healthy pets and their people. With our clinic, everyone has the opportunity to receive low-cost vaccines, basic testing and lifesaving preventatives.

Please note our clinic only provides preventative care and treatment for a limited number of conditions. Our services are outlined below. If you need a full-service veterinarian, we can provide you with a list of trusted partners in our area.

We offer first come, first served walk-in wellness service appointments every Tuesday and Thursday from 3-6pm (limited to 12 patients per day max), which are open to everyone. Additionally, we offer minor medical service appointments every Friday from 8am-1pm for our service area only (limited to 6 patients per day max and only available to residents who live in the following zip codes – 62201, 62203, 62204, 62205, 62206 and 62207). For questions, please contact (618) 687-8007, ext. 1 and leave a message. We will get back to you within 24-48 hours.

Effective immediately, Gateway Pet Guardians will cover the cost of booster shots for all adopted kittens. These appointments will take place at our clinic on Mondays and Wednesdays only between 10am-6pm. This is to address the issue of kittens receiving intake vetting at or around 6 weeks old, but not being big enough (over 3 lbs.) for spay/neuter. We were finding that many kittens were not getting an appropriate booster shot in between appointments at our clinic. Furthermore, at the time of spay/neuter, we will administer all age appropriate vaccinations at no additional cost to include a 3rd FVRCP (feline distemper vaccine) and rabies shot (12-16 weeks of age or older).
