++Vaccinations can help protect animals from life threatening diseases, and some vaccinations, such as Rabies, are required by Colorado law. Proof of RABIES vaccine is REQUIRED prior to surgery. If you cannot show proof of RABIES vaccination on/before the date of surgery, a rabies vaccine will be administered the day of surgery and charged accordingly. Vaccinations can be safely given to the animal the same day of certain surgical procedures, including spay/neuter; and this is much safer for your pet than remaining unvaccinated. Be aware that an animal’s immune system creates a stronger response and immunity when vaccinations are not given on the same day of surgery as it would when given at least 2-weeks prior to or 2-weeks after any sedative, anesthetic, or surgical event. ++
