JAMESTOWN, N.Y. (June 25, 2018) The Chautauqua County Humane Society (CCHS) announces it next Healthy Pet Clinic for the public.  The next clinic will be held Saturday, July 21st, 2018, at the Pet Pantry in Dunkirk from 10am until 1pm. No appointments will be necessary. The clinic will operate on a first come, first served basis, and is for healthy dogs and cats only.

CCHS Executive Director Kellie Roberts says “This is a chance for folks in the community that don’t have regular access to a veterinarian to have a low cost option for their healthy dog or cat to receive a basic check-up and their rabies and distemper vaccinations. These services, among others, will be available to anyone who needs them.”

The Healthy Pet Clinic is a one stop wellness shop, with participants having their visit with local veterinarian Mark McConnon, DVM.  In addition to a basic examination and core vaccinations, deworming and other wellness services will be provided as needed and there will be the option to purchase flea and tick products at special CCHS pricing, including Seresto collars, Advantage II for cats, and K9 Advantix II.

Other low cost services being offered include:

Booster Vaccines $10, heart worm testing for dogs $15,  heart worm preventative $7 (monthly), microchip with registration $25, Feline Leukemia/FIV testing for cats $15, deworming treatment wide spectrum, and Bordetella vaccine (Kennel Cough) $8. 

Roberts thanked Judy Morris from the Pet Pantry in Dunkirk for her help to make the Healthy Pet Clinic in the North County a reality.  The Healthy Pet Clinics are made possible with help from the Jessie Smith Darrah Fund and the Ingrid M. Dawson Memorial Fund at the Chautauqua Region Community Foundation for the funding that makes these clinics possible for our friends and neighbors.”

Participants should come prepared with dogs properly leashed and cats in carriers.  Cash and credit cards will be accepted. Please bring any previous rabies vaccination certificates and any veterinarian records from the past year, if available. A small co-pay will be requested for the basic services, although receiving care is not based on one’s ability to pay. Other services, including heartworm, Lyme disease, and feline leukemia testing will be available at a low cost.

Be sure to bring your pet to the Chautauqua County Humane Society’s Healthy Pet Clinic from 10am to 1pm, Saturday, July 21st 2018, at the Pet Pantry, Lark Street (near P&G Foods) in Dunkirk.  

Future South County Healthy Pet Clinics will take place at St. Luke's Episcopal Church, 410 North Main Street in Jamestown from 10am to 1pm on Saturday, July 28th, and Saturday August 25th.
