My apologies as I meant to say PetSmart not Petco.

They made no mention on needing proof of rabies vaccination when I made my appointment for my 9 year old beagle suffering from allergies. Being 45 minutes away from home it was too far to run home to get and the ASPCA that gave him his vaccine was already closed.
My only option was to pay for and subject my dog to an unecessary vaccine or reschedule for days later while my dog suffered. The Vet wouldn't even come into the room. The nurse claimed it was a safety issue. I pointed out that the vaccination would do nothing to protect anybody or any animal at this point.
She retorted that it was their policy. So why isn't the policy to have proof of vaccination before setting an appointment? Yeah you got it! If they did that they wouldn't be able to make all that money on those rabies vaccines.
I was truly disgusted by the experience. I know Petco just houses them in their store.
It makes no difference. They represent Petco and I will not likely be visiting either ever again.
