Pet-Focused Care That’s Stress-Free for You

When you bring your beloved dog or cat to VPC, we’ll treat them like they were our own, giving them affordable care that protects them from lethal diseases and other health problems.

In addition to spaying and neutering, we provide vaccinations for rabies. We also vaccinate dogs for distemper, hepatitis, canine influenza, parainfluenza, parvovirus, bordetella (kennel cough), and leptospirosis. Cats can be vaccinated to prevent feline leukemia and the FVRCP vaccination immunizes them against three nasty diseases for up to 3 years. Additionally, we can test your cat for Feline Immunodeficiency Virus (FIV).

Care That Protects

Firstly, vaccinations are not only part of being a good pet owner, they cost very little and protect against lethal diseases that are costly to treat. Secondly, spaying and neutering also have health benefits for your pet, including lowering their risk of cancer.
