Tanaya Phillips

Larry, a heeler mix dog, is extremely well behaved as he receives a rabies shot Wednesday morning at The Animal Doctor veterinary clinic. Tanaya Phillips (right), an LVMT (Licensed Veterinary Medical Technician), applies the shot as co-worker Keianna Phillips (center), another Animal Doctor employee, and Emily Weber (left), Larry’s owner, help.  Weber had another dog, named Roxy, who was being treated at the clinic as well. Special prices for Rabies Vaccination Month continue through May 30.

Henry County dog and cat owners still have nearly two weeks to take advantage of Henry County Rabies Vaccination Month.

Local veterinary clinics have been participating in the special month established by the state Department of Health throughout May.

Special reduced rates for rabies vaccinations will continue through May 30.

The cost will be $6 plus a $1.50 license fee.
