Preventive Care Packages with Low Monthly Payments: Our clinic offers low monthly payments to help budget for your pets' regular preventive care such as twice yearly exams, vaccines, nail trims, as well as blood and urine screenings. Preventive care is vital to keeping your pet healthy.
Vaccinations: One of the most important things you can do for your pet is to protect them from potential deadly diseases. We can help you do that with vaccines. A rabies vaccine is required by law for all dogs, cats and ferrets living in Lake County, IL; even if your pet never goes outside. We will assess your pets' risk to other potential diseases in our demographic area and according to your lifestyle. For example, dogs who camp, hunt or are often hanging out at dog parks or forest preserves will need to be protected from Lyme disease. Cats that roam outdoors will need to be protected from Feline Leukemia.
