Clay Hill Animal Clinic began its 2023 rabies vaccination clinic on June 5 and will conclude this Friday, June 9. The cost of the vaccination for pets  is $12 per shot. 

Office manager Melissa Alford said that the clinic has been offering this public service to the community for many years. Clay Hill, formerly known as Watson Animal Clinic, saw the need to support the community, including rural areas with the pop up clinic. 

“This clinic allows pet owners the convenience of not having to haul numerous animals into town, as we are closer to their homes,” Alford said. “Some of our clients are older, and the convenience of the mobile clinic helps them out a lot. Dogs and cats must be 12 weeks of age or older to receive the vaccine, and must be kept on a leash or in a kennel upon arrival as a safety precaution.”

Dr. Josh Gardner and Dr. Blake Bagents encourage the public to bring your animals out to be vaccinated, if you haven’t already. 

“We want to remind the public that domestic pets are the primary source of rabies transmission to humans, and could be deadly,” Bagents said. “We take pride in educating our animal lovers, on care and safety for the entire family.”  

“We value our clients and community, and appreciate the support, as we offer this mobile vaccination clinic,” Gardner said.
