  • Monthly preventatives for heartworm, fleas and ticks.

  • Tested and treated for internal parasites.

  • Microchipping.

  • Any other medically necessary treatment to prepare them for a healthy start with their new family

  • Certificate for a free wellness exam along with $250 credit to treat common rescue/shelter issues at a participating VCA Veterinary Hospital
