Murray State University's Animal Health Technology/Pre-veterinary Club is hosting a Doggie Day Spa and Pet ID Clinic on Sat., Feb. 22 from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. at A. Carman Animal Health Center on College Farm Road directly across from Calloway County High School. Proof of current rabies vaccination is required to participate for all dogs old enough to have the vaccination.
Murray State University animal health technology and pre-veterinary students will bathe a dog for $10, clean ears & trim nails for $8 or provide “the works,” bath, ear cleaning and nail trim, for $15.
The Humane Society will microchip dogs for $10 each. A microchip the size of a grain of rice is inserted between the shoulder blades of a dog in a relatively painless and quick procedure. Each microchip transponder has a unique number which enables a shelter or veterinary clinic to scan the animal for this number which will be registered with a national database allowing the owner to be contacted when the pet is found. Local veterinary offices, the animal shelter and Humane Society have scanners to read these microchips, as do most across the country.
Custom pet ID tags will be engraved on site beginning at $3 each. A wide selection of collars, leashes and harnesses will also be for sale.
If you've always wondered what breed mix your dog might be, the Humane Society will have canine DNA test kits for sale for $60. The cheek swab can be done for you that day or the kit can be completed and mailed from home. A canine DNA test makes a unique gift for friends and family who have mixed breed dogs as part of their family.
