Vaccinations are an important part of our companion animal’s health. Some of the most commonly recommended immunizations include rabies, bordetella, and DAPP (a combination vaccine for distemper, adenovirus, parainfluenza, and parvovirus). There will be a rabies clinic co-sponsored by the Western Arizona Humane Society and the Lake Havasu City Police Dept. on Saturday January 17, 1014. This clinic will be held from 8:00 a.m. to 1100 a.m. at the Aquatic Center 100 Park Ave. Lake Havasu City, AZ There will be one vaccinaton offered: Rabies $15. Each vaccine is administered subcutaneously (just below the skin). Dog licenses will also be available at that time. All dogs must be leashed and cats should be in carriers. CASH ONLY Please.
The vaccinations provided offer protection as long as dogs receive boosters on a regular, recommended schedule. This preventative step is invaluable in protecting the health of your companion animal because so much disease can be avoided with a simple vaccine. If you’re unable to attend this low-cost clinic, the vaccines are always available through your personal veterinarian.
The Western Arizona Humane Society is open Monday-Saturday, 8 a.m.-4:30 p.m., with kennel hours 10 a.m.-4 p.m. Call 855-5083 for details. For found or lost pets, call 855-4111. View animals found at www.lhcpd.com.
