Why Do You Need Your Pet's Vaccination Records?

There are many situations where having your pet's electronic health records readily available is important:

  1. If your dog bites a person or another dog, you will need to provide evidence of his rabies shot.
  2. Vaccination records are required for international pet travel.
  3. If your dog has a particular health condition, you'll want to keep track of her vaccinations, medications, and procedures.
  4. If you change vets, you'll want to provide your new vet with all your pet's info.
  5. Vaccination records are often required when you move into a new apartment with a dog or cat.
  6. Vets may need the vaccination records to determine if your dog is eligible for a three-year rabies vaccine; otherwise, he or she will be given the one-year vaccine automatically.

How to Request Vetco Medical Records

Vetco makes it easy to get medical records:

Email N/A
Mailing addressN/A
Website Customer Service Medical Records Request
Fax N/A

The laws for how long medical records are kept vary by state, both for humans and animals. Vetco is committed to keeping records for at least three years. If you're not sure whether you'll return to Vetco for another appointment, you might want to request your pet's vaccination records now, so you can be sure you have them when you need them.

It should be a simple process, but snags can occur. Maybe you don't have login information for the online request portal, and you don't want to make yet another account for something you'll only use once or twice. You might call and make the request, only to have it get lost in the shuffle of a busy veterinary clinic. If the clinic sends your forms by mail, they could get delayed or lost. If you need your pet's vaccination records now, it can be unnecessarily stressful to do it on your own.

Vetco only offers preventative care, so you probably have another vet who has helped you when your animal was sick. You should request those records, as well. If it's a local vet, the clinic may not have an online portal for making requests. You might have to dig through the website or call them to figure out what to do. This takes more time.

Fortunately, DoNotPay can help by streamlining this process and taking care of the details for you.
