Vaccine & Microchip Clinic Information
We will be holding a regular vaccine clinic at our main facility (usually the first Saturday of the month), 26 Millersville Road, Lancaster, to offer core vaccinations at an affordable rate so that pets can be better protected against illnesses. These clinics are not a replacement for a wellness exam with your regular veterinarian.
An appointment is required and you can schedule an appointment and pick a time slot on our website.
All dogs must be on leashes and all cats must be in carriers.
When you schedule your pet for an appointment, you will be asked for a $20.00 non-refundable deposit to hold your appointment at the time you schedule. This payment will go toward the cost of the procedure. If you bring multiple pets, each pet must have their own appointment scheduled.
*Please note, prices subject to change without notice.

- Causes severe respiratory disease, often with painful ulcers in the mouth.
- Is resistant to many cleaners and disinfectants and can survive in the contaminated environment for several months.
- Cats infected with FCV can shed the virus for months to years and can develop chronic oral and dental disease.
