Low-cost vaccines, microchips offered for pets on Saturday
A lot of people include pets on their Christmas lists each year, but what's a better gift for them than health and safety?
Companion Animal Hospital in Albany is hosting its annual pre-Black Friday event for the community this Saturday.
They're offering several shots for both dogs and cats for just $10 each, including the 3-year rabies vaccine.
They'll also microchip and register your pets for $30.
Dr. Carie Wisell said microchipping is especially important during the holidays, with so many people going in and out of homes.
They do ask pet owners to take a few steps before they arrive on Saturday.
“All cats in carriers, all dogs on leashes. Get ready to kind of wait, but it should be a good time. We usually have a ton of people come," Dr. Wisell said.
The event begins at 9 a.m. and runs until 2 p.m. or until every pet has been seen, Dr. Wisell said.
Companion Animal Hospital is located at 810 N. Slappey Blvd.
