Clinic is first-come, first-served. Last vaccine given at 11:00 A.M.
Clinic Cancellations or Schedule Changes: Occasionally we have to cancel or change the schedule for our vaccination clinic. When this occurs, cancellations will be posted in our events calendar located on the Home Page and Events Page.
You may pay by Cash, Visa, or MasterCard.
Whether your dog or cat will receive a rabies vaccination that is “good” for one year or three years is determined by a few things:
Animals are first vaccinated for rabies between 4 and 6 months of age. They need a booster one year from that date. They are then vaccinated every three years if the veterinarian uses a vaccination that is labeled for three-years. However, please note that some veterinarians carry rabies vaccines that are labeled for only one-year duration. At DAS, we use the rabies vaccines that are labeled for three-years. If we are late for the one-year booster or the three-year booster, then the next rabies vaccine received will only be good for one year.
