Shepherd Veterinary Clinic is a full service veterinary clinic offering both wellness and non-well care. Our wellness program includes annual examinations, vaccination against diseases that occur in the area, and managing medications to prevent diseases. A yearly exam establishes your pet as an active patient. This exam allows us to monitor the health of your pet throughout his or her life and catch any health issues that might arise. The active patient status gives you access to special privileges such as technician appointments for certain services and vaccination clinics for doctor prescribed follow up vaccinations. The vaccine clinics are held on the first Tuesday and third Thursday of each month between 7pm - 8pm. To encourage public safety for all members of the community, any animal without an “active patient” status may receive the rabies vaccination only at these clinics. Please understand that without the yearly exam, our doctors do not have up to date information regarding your pets overall health, which is required for the dispensing of heartworm and other medications for disease prevention and good health.
