Keeping your pet up to date on all their shots can be expensive – but it doesn’t have to be.

An affordable pet health clinic, hosted by the Humane Society of Harford County (HSHC) and the Howard County Health Department, will be setting up shop in Fallston for one day on Feb. 10, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Fallston Volunteer Fire & Ambulance Company at 2201 Carrs Mill Road.

The clinic will offer vaccines, nail trims and microchips on a first-come-first-served basis. Pet parents can pay with cash or a major credit card.

Bob Citrullo, executive director at HSHC, says in a news release that their goal with the clinic is to make core vaccines affordable for pet parents who are experiencing financial challenges and struggling to afford a regular relationship with a veterinarian.

The vaccines offered include distemper and Bordetella for dogs, distemper for cats and rabies vaccines for dogs, cats and ferrets. The vaccines will be $10 each, microchips $25 and nail trims $20 per animal.

To receive vaccines, the animals must be at least 4 months old, dogs must be leashed and cats and ferrets must be in carriers. Be sure to bring your pet’s most recent previous rabies certificate to receive the 3-year rabies vaccination.
