FREE VACCINES FOR LIFE PROGRAM

     At Chicago Drive Veterinary Clinic, we believe the most important part of a preventative health care program is an annual physical examination. As an incentive to promote preventive health care, we now offer a FREE VACCINES FOR LIFE PROGRAM.

HOW DOES THE PROGRAM WORK?
  • There is a non-refundable enrollment fee to join the program.
  • An enrollment fee will cover one pet and is not transferable. You may enroll as many pets as you would like.
  • 7Currently, the enrollment fee is $75.00 per pet. (This price is offered for a limited time)
  •  If your pet has been seen by OUR veterinarian for a wellness physical examination in the past year, you may enroll your pet and the vaccines will be free when they are due.
  • If your pet is due for an annual wellness physical examination, you will need to schedule an appointment for these services and pay the enrollment fee to be eligible for the free vaccines.
  • Return at least once per year for your pet's annual physical examination by one of OUR veterinarians. Any vaccinations for which your pet is due will be given free of charge. You will be responsible for the physical examination fee at that time as well as any routine health care such as heartworm test, fecal, and heartworm prevention.

PROGRAM DETAILS
Program participation requirements:
  • All adult pets over the age of one year require an annual physical examination/wellness visit every 12 months.. You will be responsible for the physical examination fee that day. A grace period of 30 days following the annual exam due date will be allowed to accommodate scheduling flexibility. However, after the 30 day grace period, the program will be considered NULL AND VOID. After the grace period, you may either re-enroll your pet in the program (if it is still available), or resume paying for vaccines at the time they are given.
  • Puppies and kittens will be required to have a Pediatric Physical Examination every 3 to 4 weeks. You will be responsible for the physical examination fee that day but the vaccinations will be FREE. A grace period of 7 days will be allowed to accommodate scheduling flexibility. However, after the 7 days grace period (no more than 35 days after the previous Pediatric Physical Examination), the program will be considered NULL and VOID. After the grace period, you may either re-enroll your pet in the program (if it is still available), or resume paying for vaccines at the time they are given. After the last pediatric visit at 16 weeks of age, the client will continue to be responsible for the annual physical examination/wellness visit every 12 months as described above.
  • An enrollment fee is required for each pet that participates in the program and is non-refundable and non-transferable from pet to pet.
  • A signed contract will be provided to participate in the program. The program will cover the following vaccines for dogs:
