Clinic will offer lifesaving services to keep pets safe
If you could do one or two simple things to keep your pet safe, would you? On Saturday, April 5, pet owners will have the chance to attend a rabies, microchip and licensing clinic hosted by Little Traverse Bay Humane Society at Pellston Animal Clinic that provides important lifesaving measures.
The clinic will be held from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m. The services are available to Emmet County residents and will be offered at a reduced fee of $30 per pet. The event will be held at Pellston Animal Clinic, located at 421 Stimpson Street in Pellston.
This is a highly beneficial clinic that provides lifesaving preventative measures to keep pets safe. Rabies is highly contagious and is easily spread through the saliva of animals. Vaccinating animals against rabies is a good way to protect them from the disease.
Microchipping is equally important, as it protects pets in the instance that they are separated from their owner. It is an easy way for an animal to be quickly identified and returned home.
Owners whose dogs have expired rabies vaccines may bring proof of such from a veterinarian’s office in order to receive an updated three-year rabies vaccination. Dogs with no written proof will receive a one-year vaccination. Owners will receive dog licenses and rabies tags the day of the event.
Registration and payment are required prior to the clinic and can be paid at Little Traverse Bay Humane Society, located at 1300 West Conway Road in Harbor Springs. The administration of a micro chip is required with this clinic. Dogs who have already been micro chipped may still receive the rabies vaccination if the owner presents proof of micro chipping. The fee is still $30. Call 231-347-2396 for more information or to reserve a spot at the clinic.
Pellston Animal Clinic is also offering heartworm tests for a reduced fee of $20 per pet the day of the event. To reserve a test, call 231-539-7113.
These are truly simple, preventative measures that can make a world of difference in protecting your pet during their lifetime. We hope you’ll join us for this important clinic!
