Vaccine and microchip clinics are held once a month on Saturdays from 9:00 AM to 3:00 PM. These clinics are open to the general public and there are no income restrictions. We do ask that all pets that come for vaccines are in good health and have been spayed or neutered, or the owner intends to have them altered. Please see our Vaccination Policy and Vaccine Schedule below for more information. Please check our Facebook page or Clinic Dates website page for announcements regarding vaccine clinic dates.
• Vaccines are $10 each. We offer Rabies (one year), Canine Bordetella, DAPPV* (for dogs), and FVRCP** (for cats).
• Microchips are $20 and we will register your pet’s microchip online for your convenience.
• Also available for established clients:
Dewormer: $5 per dose
Monthly Flea/Tick Preventative: $7-$12 depending on size of animal
Capstar: $5 (24 hour flea treatment—kills flea infestation immediately.)
• CASH is the only form of payment. We do not accept debit or credit cards or checks.
• Cats must be in secure carriers (we have carriers available to loan).
• Dogs must be on leashes even if being held in your arms.
• This is a walk in clinic and no appointment is necessary. You may email us (firstname.lastname@example.org) the following information to preregister: the pet owner’s name, address, phone number, and the name, sex, species, breed, age, and color of each animal you plan to bring. Also indicate whether each pet has been spayed or neutered (see our vaccination policy below). By giving us this information in advance, your time spent in the clinic doing paperwork is minimized.
• Please leave your pet in the car while you fill out paperwork. If the weather is hot, please bring a friend to supervise your pet in your air conditioned car. DO NOT leave a pet in a hot car!
* DAPPV is a combination vaccine that includes: Canine Distemper, Adenovirus Type 1 (Hepatitis), Parainfluenza, Parvovirus, Adenovirus Type 2 (Respiratory Disease)
** FVRCP is a combination vaccine that includes: Feline Rhinotracheitis Virus, Calicivirus, Panleukopenia
Our policy regarding the vaccination of intact animals: The mission of Spay Arkansas is “to reduce the number of unwanted and stray animals entering our shelters by offering high quality and affordable spay and neuter services to under-served individuals, shelters and rescues within our community.” Our monthly community vaccine and microchip clinics are beneficial to clients who need to complete the required vaccines for young dogs and cats they are planning to have altered, or for pets that require additional boosters post-surgery. Owners of animals that we have sterilized often rely on us to revaccinate them the following year so that city tags can be issued. We are happy to welcome any spayed or neutered pets at our vaccine clinics. The benefactors of Spay Arkansas clearly intend for their money to be used for the purpose of spaying and neutering, and the discounted vaccines we offer are also supported by their donations. Therefore, it is our policy that anyone who intends to breed their animal, has used their pet for breeding purposes, or simply does not wish to have their pet altered, establish a relationship with a full service local veterinarian for vaccinations and microchips. Our goal is to have all pets in our community as healthy as possible.
Recommended Puppy & Kitten Vaccine Schedule
A series of three “core” vaccines (DAPPV or FVRCP) is necessary to provide full protection from disease.
• Your pet’s first vaccination should be administered approximately 2 weeks after being weaned (stopped nursing).
• The second vaccine is required approximately 4 weeks following the initial vaccination.
• A third vaccination is required approximately 4 weeks later.
Rabies vaccine is not given before 16 weeks.
