That’s why the Haliburton, Kawartha, Pine Ridge District Health Unit, with local vets, is offering its annual fall Low-Cost-Rabies-Vaccination Clinics in the City of Kawartha Lakes on Saturday, Oct. 15.
Rabies is a serious virus that attacks the nerves and brain of an animal. If left untreated, rabies is fatal.
People and pets may get rabies when an infected animal bites or scratches them, or licks an open wound.
The Rabies Vaccination Clinics cost $25 per animal (cash only). No examination of the animal will take place at the clinic, and dogs should be on leashes and cats in carriers. Here are locations for the Oct. 15, 9 am-to-noon clinics:
• Bobcaygeon – Three Island Veterinary Services (115 East St. N.)
• Fenelon Falls – Fenelon Animal Clinic (474 County Road 121), NB – 9 am to 1 pm
