­­­Low-cost rabies clinics are being held at various locations across Simcoe County this week.

Clinics, coordinated by the Simcoe Muskoka District Health Unit and run by local veterinarians, began Sept. 28 and run through to Oct. 29. Muskoka pet owners can attend clinics in Severn Township and Oro-Medonte.

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

Pet owners have an important role to play in preventing animal bites and reducing 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.
  • Make sure dog and cat rabies vaccinations are up-to-date (check with your veterinarian).

For clinic schedules and locations, visit www.simcoemuskokahealth.org 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.
