|Vaccine/Microchip Clinic Information|
The Pet Pantry of Lancaster County wants to make sure that all pets are protected from the basic diseases that can cause severe illness or even death in dogs and cats while also providing a method of permanent identification to be implanted in your pet via a microchip. We hold vaccine/microchip clinics at various locations throughout Lancaster County during the year. Please see our schedule below for upcoming clinic dates and locations. The only vaccines offered at these clinics are Rabies and DHPP (commonly called the Distemper Combo) for dogs and Rabies and FVRCP (commonly called the Distemper Vaccine) for cats. Any other vaccines needed would have to be obtained at your local veterinarian Each vaccine cost $15 and a microchip is $25 unless you are a Pet Pantry client and your animal is registered in our feeding program, in which case the cost is half.
Please note these clinics DO NOT take the place of your pets yearly examination at your local vet. It is still strongly recommended that you have your pets examined by your vet on a yearly basis. Regular examinations can identify illnesses before they are life-threatening and address less serious conditions impacting the quality of your pet’s life.
