Craig Briefs: Pet Health Fair to visit Murdoch’s on July 27
July 16, 2013
Murdoch's Ranch and Home Supply is hosting a Pet Health Fair from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. July 27. A variety of pet vendors are partnering to offer the community event.
The health fair was designed for pets and their owners who have been postponing important maintenance steps for their pet's optimal health. The fair offers an opportunity to help pet owners catch up on dog and cat vaccinations at a 10 percent deduction in cost through Bear Creek Animal Hospital.
Dog licenses also will be available for those that aren't currently licensed. Dog owners must have proof of a current rabies vaccination in order to obtain a license. D'Tail will be on site to offer nail clips, and Laura Tyler, of Total Teamwork Training, and Glenna Grandbush, of Canines Unlimited, will provide training tips and address hard-to-break habits.
Additionally, Murdoch's will host a free dog wash and offer a variety of door prizes. After pets are freshened up, owners can have photos taken with their dogs and cats. The Humane Society of Moffat County will have pets on site for adoption.
