Our veterinarians recommend that pets be fully-vaccinated against communicable disease (distemper, parvo, and upper respiratory disease) 2 weeks prior to surgery. However, we are able to vaccinate at the time of surgery if needed. Indiana state law requires a current rabies vaccination for your pet. If they have already had a recent rabies vaccination, please bring proof in the form of a certificate. (Tags are not acceptable forms of proof.) We are otherwise required to administer one at the time of surgery for a charge of $15.
