Mark your calendars! HBSPCA Rabies Clinic happening Thursday June 29th at the Hamilton/Burlington SPCA from 4:00 pm – 7:00 pm.
The recent confirmation of a second cat in the area with rabies should raise concerns for pet owners within our community. Keeping our pets up-to-date on their rabies vaccine is the only way to prevent the spread of this deadly disease, which is found in the saliva of infected animals, and it’s transmitted to pets and people through bites or open wounds.
This CTV News article reports that the bulk of rabies cases has happened in and around Hamilton, with a second raccoon testing positive in Six Nations.
This clinic will also be a microchip clinic. Prices are as follows:
$25 for rabies vaccine AND a microchip
$20 for microchip
Please remember to bring your dogs on leash and your cats in carriers. This will be a walk-in clinic, no need to make an appointment in advance.
