Rabies is problematic for people and pets alike.

The Haliburton, Kawartha, Pine Ridge Health Unit announced on Twitter that in “late September” they will be hosting vaccination clinics, offering low-cost rabies vaccines for your pets.

The clinic does not have a date as of yet, but they will be giving people a chance to protect their pet for one-third of the cost of getting the vaccine through a privatized veterinarian. On average rabies vaccines can range from $45 to $80 for the once a year shot.

HKPR encourages keeping your pet’s vaccinations up to date and stresses that rabies if untreated is almost always fatal.

myhaliburtonnow.com will update as the dates of the clinic become available.
