WAG Wellness Clinics return to Mt Currie, starting May 22
Whistler Animals Galore (WAG) has teamed up with the Pemberton Veterinary Hospital and Lil’wat Nation for the second year to hold monthly Animal Wellness Clinics in Mt. Currie from May to September.
The first clinic is on May 22. Each session will offer education, low-cost veterinarian exams, vaccinations, parasite control and vouchers towards spay or neuter surgeries.
For just $25 each dog will get a one-on-one exam with a vet (Dr. Laura White), a vaccination, parasite control, a voucher towards the cost of spaying and neutering and a small bag of dog food. There’s also going to be staff and volunteers on hand to help educate, answer any questions and provide information about WAG’s programs.
69 dogs were seen at last year’s clinics. “We had a great response last year,” said Dr. Laura White from the Pemberton Veterinarian Hospital. “Just steady patients from start to finish. Most of the time there were people waiting and we got lots of animals vaccinated. I think it was a big success overall.”
Clinics will run at the end of each month from 5 – 7 p.m. in The Bus Barn at Xet’olacw. Check the WAG Facebook or FundRazr page for more details or to donate. “Without the support of the community and donations we wouldn’t be able to provide this service,” Suckling added. “We encourage the community to go online and check it out in detail.”
