Rabies Clinic Set for May 7

April 27, 2016 -12:54 PM

MOUNT VERNON - With spring weather arriving soon, everyone will be spending more time outside. That includes people and pets which increases the chance to come in contact with a rabid animal. If you have not had a chance to get a rabies vaccination for your pet, you are in luck.


The Knox County Health Department and Knox County Humane Society will sponsor a rabies immunization clinic on May 7 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the garage located behind the health department, 11660 Upper Gilchrist Rd.


The clinic is for dogs, cats and ferrets. Rabies vaccination is recommended for all pets, including those kept inside. 


One-year and three-year vaccinations will be offered. Proof of last year’s vaccinations will be needed to receive the three-year vaccination. There is a $15 charge for the oneyear vaccination; $20 for the three-year vaccination. No nursing, pregnant or sick animals will be treated. The clinic veterinarian, Dr. Brian Wennerstrom, will have the final say on whether an animal receives the rabies vaccination. Micro-chipping is available for $30.


Dogs should be brought to the clinic on a leash; cats and ferrets should be contained in a carrier. Pet owners will be required to complete paperwork on site for record-keeping purposes. Vaccinated dogs will receive a rabies tag that can be attached to the animal’s collar; cat and ferret owners will receive a receipt for vaccine verification.


The clinic will take place in the garage behind the main health department building. The animals will be vaccinated in a confined area to avoid pet escapes.

For more information, contact the Knox County Humane Society at 740-392-2287.
