FVHA’s Low Cost Vaccine Clinic
Even if your pet is kept mostly indoors, it is very important to protect your pet from contagious diseases. Many contagious diseases are airborne and your pet could easily be exposed through an open window. There is also a risk if your pet happens to get out the door. Boarding your pet, dog parks and grooming stations are also areas where your pet could be exposed. Luckily, there are vaccines to help prevent many illnesses that affect our pets.
Fox Valley Humane Association is here to help you keep up with your pets vaccinations. EVERY MONTH we will be holding LOW COST VACCINE CLINIC by appointment only. Vaccines range from $5 to $15 each and are administered by trained professionals.

Canine leptospirosis or ‘lepto’, is an infection caused by at least four species of Leptospira bacteria. Dogs typically pick-up the bacteria from water or soil contaminated from infected urine.

After the initial vaccination, a yearly booster is recommended.
