Vaccines have been a big topic of discussion for the past month and while there’s no vaccine for covid-19, there are vaccines proven to guard dogs and cats against rabies, parvo-virus and even a rattlesnake antivenin that could help your pet survive snakebite . . . and vastly reduce the cost to treat a pet envenomated by a viper. Are your pets up-to-date on their shots?
Tender Loving Care Veterinary Services parks their mobile clinic Thursday, May 21 at Globe ACE Hardware from 9 - 10:30 a.m. Connect on Facebook (search keyword ‘TLCvetservices’) to obtain a $5 coupon off vaccination-package coupon.
Veterinary clinic staff are taking precautions related to COVID-19 and are still driving up to Globe each month to provide essential services. Among precautions, staff meet clients and pets at your car, bringing paperwork out and assigning a matching number to your vehicle - and then returning as your number is called for the pet’s exam, treatment or medication. Microchipping starts at $15, and services are performed by a license veterinarian. Healthy dog vaccine package $63 includes DA2PPv, deworming, bordetella, and one or three-year rabies, while a $57 package for cats includes FVRCP and FeLv vaccines, deworm and one or three-year rabies. Multiple vaccination packages include a free veterinary express exam; expect a minor fee of $1-3 for waste disposal per animal. For questions about services or if you want to schedule an appointment call 480-699-9950.
