Do I need to bring anything with my pet? YES! You must have a copy of your pet’s current vaccinations. Pets must have their rabies vaccine, but we prefer that the pets have all of their shots, including kennel cough. These will be kept in your pet’s records. You may bring treats and/or food for your pet if you like. We ask that you do not bring towels or blankets unless they are donations. All dogs must be on a leash and cats must be in a carrier.
How do I schedule an appointment? To schedule an appointment, simply email firstname.lastname@example.org or call the main school number and ask for the Akins Pet Clinic / Veterinary Sciences.
What time can I drop my pet off and pick it up? In order to minimize classroom disruptions, pets must be dropped off between 8:00 a.m. and 8:45 a.m. no pets will be accepted after 8:45.
