This is a difficult time and for the safety of everyone we are making some changes to our current Friday protocol. We are very sorry about this.
1: WEAR A MASK!
2: BRING A PEN TO FILL OUT YOUR PAPERWORK
3: In order to protect the safety of our team, our doctor and other clients, we request all clients showing signs of illness that can be associated with COVID-19 remain at home and not bring their pet. If you are feeling sick, (ESPECIALLY fever, cough, shortness of breath, etc.) please do not come. If you have been in contact with someone infected or potentially infected, do not come! If you require quarantine do not come!
4: STAY IN YOUR VEHICLE! We are asking pet owners not to enter the building in order to minimize contact distances. A tech or assistant will come to your vehicle. You do not need to call when you get here we will see you in the lot.
5: Please bring as FEW people as possible in your vehicle and ideally keep your children at home --EVERYONE IN THE VEHICLE MUST WEAR A MASK!
6: THE VACCINATION CLINIC WILL ONLY BE FROM 9-10AM; there will be a wait time
7: PAYMENT: CASH or MONEY ORDER
A VACCINATION CLINIC IS NOT A SUBSTITUTE FOR AN EXAM. ANIMALS ARE NOT GIVEN A PHYSICAL EXAM AT THE VACCINATION CLINIC. ALL PUPPIES AND KITTENS NEED AN EXAM. ALL DOGS AND CATS NEED AN ANNUAL OR A SEMI-ANNUAL EXAM. RECOMMENDATIONS FOR INDIVIDUAL PETS CAN BE MADE AT THE EXAM.
WHEN: A Reduced Cost Vaccination Clinic is provided EVERY FRIDAY from 9-10 am unless posted otherwise.
YOU DO NOT NEED AN APPOINTMENT FOR THE VACCINATION CLINICS!! CATS MUST BE IN SEPARATE CARRIERS!!!!! See info about carriers on the FELINE SPAY/NEUTER page
COST FORM/CONSENT FORM: For costs and services please check out "Feline Spay/Neuter/Vaccination Clinic Liability Release Form." Services rendered include vaccinations, flea/tick treatment, deworming, Leukemia/FIV testing, microchipping, fecal testing, nail trimming. You can read the Vaccination Information handout for info on all vaccines offered. We will not vaccinate unhealthy cats, cats on antibiotics, cats that are too thin, etc. If your cat is deemed unhealthy, for WHATEVER reason, we will NOT vaccinate. We will not vaccinate nursing moms if the kittens are under 4 weeks of age. If you just applied a flea/tick prevention product, dewormer, ear mite med etc, do not bring in your cat for vaccinations for a few days since they can have reactions to the aforementioned products.
Fear Free recommends covering carriers with a towel to decrease anxiety, spraying the towel with Feliway 30 minutes before transport, playing soft music on the trip or Through a Cat's Ear CD, and placing the carrier on the floor behind the passenger seat.
THERE IS INFO ON THIS WEBSITE ABOUT GETTING CATS INTO CARRIERS UNDER CARRIER WARS AND MAKING THEIR TRIP TO THE VET MORE FEAR FREE. PLEASE CHECK OUT CATFRIENDLY.COM FOR MORE INFO.

We ONLY use MERIAL vaccines for cats due to their efficacy and low risk of adverse vaccine reactions. Merial uses cutting edge technology to develop their vaccines. The PureVax line for cats does not contain any adjuvants which means they are less likely to cause sarcomas.
We utilize the most current vaccination guidelines along with the most up to date information we acquire every year at continuing education classes. The Rabies vaccine is administered in the lower part of the right hind limb below the stifle close to the hock. The Distemper vaccine is administered in the right front limb below the elbow close to the carpus. The Leukemia vaccine is administered in the lower part of the left hind limb below the stifle close to the hock.
