Affordable Pet Care in McKinney
Today I feel a genuine sense of pride in sharing this McKinney treasure with you. Over the past few months, I have had the pleasure of getting to know the staff and family behind The Shot Spot in McKinney – a family-owned, full-service pet hospital. I’ve personally witnessed the passion and desire the Cox family has for serving our community and I am thrilled to have a business (and a family) of this caliber as one of McKinney’s own.
On June 5, 2017, The Shot Spot (located at 1827 W Louisiana Street) opened its doors to the McKinney community. The Shot Spot offers affordable state-of-the-art treatment and care for pets. Having affordable options for pet care is of the utmost priority for founders Dr. and Mrs. Danny Cox. “Years ago, one of our patients – a dog named Bear – was hit by a car in the middle of the night,” Amy Cox shared with me. “When Bear’s family learned the life-saving surgery was more than they could afford at the 24-hour emergency clinic where Bear was taken for treatment, they had to make the choice to put Bear down, a practice commonly known as economic euthanasia. The clinic didn’t offer any other options.” When Dr. Cox and Amy heard this news, they were devastated. As a result, they decided economic euthanasia would never be the only choice for one of their patients again.
