It is extremely important that your pets are properly vaccinated. While rabies is rare, it is a serious and often fatal disease. Distemper can also be fatal. Microchips are tiny, about the size of a grain of rice, that enables CVHS or an Animal Control Officer to use a small scanner to read your information off of the chip so you can be notified that your pet has been found. Countless pets find their way back home because of microchips. Microchips do not transmit information, and only someone with a scanner can read the information.

CVHS will not be holding a vaccine clinic this spring.
