Tractor Supply offering low cost pet vaccine clinics

Tractor Supply Company announces the launch of PetVet Clinic — an easy, affordable and convenient way to vaccinate your pet. The clinic will be operated by PawsPlus at the Coweta County store at least once a month. The clinics offer individual and comprehensive vaccine packages for rabies, bordatella and parvo, as well as microchipping and heartworm tests and prevention.

“Our new PetVet Clinics are another way Tractor Supply is delivering on our commitment to be the best pet supply store in our communities” said John Wendler, Tractor Supply senior vice president of marketing.

Clinics are available for dogs and cats and are staffed by a state-licensed veterinarian and a service team. No appointment is necessary to participate, and there is no exam fee, just the cost of the vaccines.

To further ensure a customer-friendly experience, pet owners will be able register on their personal handheld devices and then shop in the store until they receive a text message indicating it’s their pet’s turn for the service. Digital records of the inoculations will be kept, and clinic attendees will be advised when their pet’s next vaccination is due.

Upcoming clinic dates at the Coweta location are Oct. 20 from 3:30 to 5 p.m., Nov. 2 from 10 to 11:30 a.m., Nov. 17 from 3:30 to 5 p.m., Nov. 30 from 10 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. and Dec. 15 from 3:30 to 5 p.m.
