Washington County Health Department hosts rabies shot clinic

BARLOW, Ohio The Washington County Health Department made vaccinations very accessible for pet owners, Saturday.

The health department offered rabies vaccinations for dogs and cats for a low cost of $10. Many pet owners are sometimes unable to make it to the vet.

Rabies is a fatal disease if contracted and it is a virus that most warm blooded animals share.

Local veterinarian Gwen McHenry donated her services to the clinic, Saturday.

"A lot of people recognize that they do need their pets vaccinated for rabies and sometimes for whatever reason it might be inconvenient for them to go to a regular veterinarian so these clinics are pretty handy for people," said McHenry.

The Washington County Health Department hosts rabies clinics twice a year.
