Vaccine clinic to be hosted by Pierce’s veterinary program

A low cost vaccine clinic will be hosted by the college’s veterinary technology program Sunday Oct 23 between 10 a.m. and 1 p.m in the Veterinary Building in the back of the Center for Sciences complex.

All animals must be at least eight weeks old and have had a physical by a veterinarian in the last year.

Students from the college will be administering the vaccines under the observation of a licensed veterinary technician, , according to Angela Killips, instructional assistant for the Veterinary Technology Program.

The clinic is offering DA2PP, rabies and bordetella vaccines for dogs.  Cats can be given FVRCP, FelV and rabies vaccines.

Microchips are also available for a cost of $25 each.

The vaccine clinic, along with a spay and neuter clinic, is hosted every semester to give students valuable experience, according to Killips.
