Medical Services

Animal Care of Davis County encourages pet owners to help their pets stay up-to-date on annual vaccinations.  This should not be considered a substitute for regular veterinary visits. Our desire for a community of vaccinated and microchipped animals has led to the change in the cost of administration of these services.  Due to the steep price drop there will no longer be a discount for purchasing more than one vaccination or service at a time.

Service TypePrice
Single Vaccine$12.00
