El Paso Animal Services and the Petco Love Foundation continue their series of wellness clinics as part of a nationwide campaign to vaccinate one million pets.
The clinic will be held from 8 a.m. to noon Sunday, October 17 at 301 George Perry Boulevard, and offers owners an opportunity to get their furry family members vaccinated and microchipped for free.
“The clinic aims at making it easier for owners to keep their pets, and themselves, healthy and safe,” event organizers shared. “Pets must be six weeks old or older to receive vaccines.”
This event is first-come, first-served and limited to the first 500 animals; they must remain in the vehicle; all dogs must be on a leash and cats must be placed in a secure carrier while visiting the drive-thru clinic.
Dogs will receive a parvo/distemper vaccination, while cats will receive a feline viral rhinotracheitis, calicivirus, and panleukopenia (FVRCP) vaccination, both will also be given a microchip.
No other vaccinations will be available at this drive-thru, and officials add that this series of wellness events will continue into the fall and winter seasons.
