Circle V 4H, Animal Medical & Surgical, and PETCO are sponsoring a low-cost pet vaccination clinic this Saturday, August 24, 12-2 PM. The proceeds will be donated to the Gilmer 4-H Veterinary Science Students headed by Andrea Brunson and taught by Dr. Cherie Nazzal and a Upshur County Hope House for Pets, no kill animal rescue organization.
All pet vaccinations will be administered inside the PETCO store on Loop 281 near Hastings in Longview and are being offered to the community at a discounted rate. "Core Vaccines," or the basics, start at $30.00 and include Rabies, 9-in-one (Distemper-Parvo Combination) for dogs and 4-in-one (Distemper, Upper respiratory) for cats. The deluxe set of shots include Rabies, 9-way, H3N8 Flu, and Bordatella for dogs and Rabies, 4-way, Leukemia, and FIV-Aids for cats and costs $50.00, which is half the retail value. Dewormers and Heartworm testing and preventatives will be offered. Microchips are also offered at half price ($25.00), which includes the cost of registration.
All dogs and cats are required by law to receive an annual Rabies Vaccination - every year.
