Come get your pet vaccinated for rabies at ONE of THREE rabies clinics!
For just $10 per vaccine you can protect your furry friends and family from this deadly disease. While rabies clinics do provide a valuable service, they are not a substitute for regular checkups. Please remember to have your pet’s annual or biannual exam (if your pet is a senior) so that your cat or dog can be appropriately evaluated and updated on all vaccines or lab work that is due such as heartworm and stool sample.
The schedule is:
March 9, 2013
Baltimore Town Hall
March 16, 2013
Springfield Fire House
Springfield Animal Hospital
March 27, 2013
Town Clerk’s office will be available to license your dog after vaccination on Saturday March 9 and Saturday March 16th. Please have animals on a leash or in a carrier.
If you need further information, please call Springfield Animal Hospital at 802-885-2505.
No Yarn for Kittens!
by Mary Donaldson
We’ve all seen those cute pictures…kittens playing with a ball of yarn. Childrens’ books, greeting cards, posters, all show how adorable a kitten is with yarn as a toy. Fiction!
Fact: Yarn can be deadly to cats. Cats, as well as kittens, can easily start to swallow yarn unintentionally. The yarn gets stuck on their tongue and their only choice is to keep swallowing. The results…xrays, surgery and, if you are lucky, recovery.
If your cat does swallow yarn, or string, NEVER try to pull it out through their mouth. This can cause major damage to the esophagus and throat. Instead, call your vet immediately.
Our renovations are continuing, lots of banging and power tools, poor kitties. We are open by appointment only until everything is cleaned up and ready to be revealed!
