Parvo is a deadly and dangerous virus that causes stomach problems in dogs. It is more commonly seen in puppies but recently, the clinic has seen an increase in parvo cases in older dogs and across the board.

The clinic is first come first serve. Organizers ask you to remain in your car with your dog during the drive-thru clinic.

The RCACP will also be at the clinic hosting a free pet food pantry.
