CHILDRESS – Dr. Connie Lindley, owner of Critter Care Vet Clinic in Childress, will host the Memphis Pet Vaccination Clinic from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday, June 20 at the Memphis Fire Station, located at 721 W. Robertson St.
“We need to get animals vaccinated for rabies,” said Critter Care Vet Clinic Owner Dr. Connie Lindley.
The Rabies vaccine costs $10, and it comes with a free city tag for the animal. The tag will include the pet owner’s phone number on the back. Lindley said the City of Memphis requires owners to register their pets.
Other vaccinations will also be available, she explained. They are the Canine Distemper-Adenovirus Type 2-Parainfluenza-Parvovirus vaccine, Bordetella (kennel cough) vaccine, Feline Rhinotracheitis Calici-Panleukopenia Chlamydia Psittaci + Leukemia, Rattlesnake vaccine and De-wormer.
“It is important to vaccinate puppies for Parvo,” Lindley said. “Parvo is always bad this time of year. It is a whole lot easier and less expensive to prevent than to treat it.”
For those who have three or more dogs or three or more cats, feel free to ask about a kennel license.
Because of COVID-19, only one person per animal is allowed. Pet owners will have to stay in their vehicles with their animals. Everyone must wear a mask too.
