Required Information:

Proof of current rabies vaccination is required
If your pet has already been vaccinated against rabies, bring the original, signed rabies certificate to the clinic with you. A rabies tag is not acceptable proof of vaccination.
If you do not have proof of rabies vaccination, we will vaccinate your pet at an additional cost of a regularly priced Rabies vaccine.

Other Medical Information

You are welcome to bring any other medical records with you to help us determine your pet’s other vaccination needs, but it’s not a requirement. Please see the vaccine and service costs on our Vaccination Services page.


Don’t forget to confirm the location of the clinic so that you will know how to get there and allow enough time, as we cannot always accept late arrivals. We have multiple locations and transports so please write down the time that is given to you when you schedule your appointment.

CATS must each be in a separate secure hard carrier. Please check all latches and clasps while indoors and in a safe environment. For transports: Cats brought in a soft carrier will be given a cardboard carrier for an additional cost.
Dogs must be on a secure leash that he cannot slip out of or in a hard carrier.
If you drive a pick-up truck, please note that we are not allowed to release a pet after surgery that is not put inside the cab or into a secured crate in the back. This is for your pet’s safety and the safety of other drivers as your pet is very likely to be disoriented after surgery.
