Wellness & Outpatient Care Services

Rochester Community Animal Clinic (RCAC) is primarily a walk-in veterinary clinic available to all pet owners, regardless of their income level.

In addition to walk-in hours, wellness/vaccine appointments are available on a weekly basis for pets needing only vaccines and routine testing (such as Heartworm, Feline Leukemia Virus, or Feline Immunodeficiency Virus blood tests).

Wellness and outpatient care services are available to kittens, puppies, and adult or senior cats and dogs.

RCAC is NOT a full-service veterinary hospital, and cannot treat critical care cases such as broken bones or injuries that require X-rays or emergency surgery.
