SIMCOE MUSKOKA  – Local veterinarians in Simcoe and Muskoka are continuing to offer a series of low-cost rabies clinics this week and next.

The last round of clinics is coming this weekend, in Bracebridge, Barrie, Angus, Ramara, Oro-Medonte, Cookstown, and Tottenham.

Dates, times and locations are all listed on the health unit’s website. Look for the dog and cat picture on the home page at www.smdhu.org.

It’s not just good sense to get your pet vaccinated: It’s the law.

Ensuring that your pet’s rabies vaccinations are up-to-date is the most effective way of preventing the disease. A quick check with your veterinarian will verify the status.

You can also do more to prevent animal bites and reduce the risk of transmission of rabies by taking the following precautions:

  • Don’t allow pets to wander, particularly at night.
  • Keep a distance from unfamiliar animals, particularly ones that appear sick.
  • Don’t feed wildlife.
  • Take measures to keep bats out of your home.

For more details, visit the website or call Your Health Connection at 705-721-7520 or 1-877-721-7520 weekdays from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
