Saturdays through June 11, DC’s Department of Health is offering clinics for pets at locations throughout the city. The goal is to prevent and control the spread of diseases between pets and humans.

Services include vaccinations, licensing, and microchipping, plus opportunities to speak with a veterinarian. The vaccinations, available for cats and dogs, are free, but licensing—for dogs only—costs $15 for spayed or neutered pets and $50 for non-fixed ones. The Washington Humane Society will offer microchipping for $35.

Here’s where the clinics will be popping up:

Saturday, May 14
9 to 11:30 AM: King Greenleaf Recreation Center (201 N St., SW)
1:30 to 4 PM: Southeast Tennis and Learning Center (701 Mississippi Ave., SE) 

Saturday, May 21
9 to 11:30 AM: Upshur Recreation Center (4300 Arkansas Ave., NW)
1:30 to 4 PM: Triangle Park (Minnesota Ave. and Croffut Pl., SE)

Saturday, June 11
9 to 11:30 AM: Shaw Dog Park (11th St. and Rhode Island Ave., NW)
1:30 to 4 PM: Newark Street Dog Park (39th and Newark sts., NW)

  • The reddish/brownish marks on the inside corner just below the eyes of our dogs we all know as tear stains. You see them most often on light-colored fur, which makes the tear stains more visible. As the name "tear stains" suggests, they are caused by an overflow of tears that react with normal bacteria found on the skin which produces the darkened color. A common culprit that produces the esthetically unpleasing tear stain is an organism known as Ptyrosporin or Red Yeast.
