The city of Lakewood, California, will be bringing back its traditional walk-up pet event entitled Bow Wow and Meow Day this June 18, 2023. The event, a long-beloved summer staple for the local community, will be held at the northeast corner of Del Amo and Clark along Civic Center Way.
According to the Lakewood City website, the event will offer a wide array of essential pet care services at inexpensive prices, including the following:
- Anti-rabies vaccinations
- Other vaccinations for dogs and cats
- Fecal examinations
- Physical examinations
- Prescription products for flea control
- Diagnostic testing and other health services for purchase
Event organizers will accept payment via cash, checks, and credit cards. Pet owners can also seek up-to-date, accurate information on low-cost healthcare and spaying/neutering options for their pets at the event.
For the collective safety of all event attendees, all dogs must be leashed and all cats must be contained in secure carriers while in the walk-up line.
Essential Pet Safety Measures You Should Be Observing
Keeping pets healthy, safe, and secure on the daily is one of the most important responsibilities of any pet owner. To start with, this means taking concrete steps to look after their physical well-being, such as by taking them in for routine veterinary checkups and ensuring that their vaccines are up-to-date.
It’s also important to make sure that your pet is outfitted with proper identification at all times, in case they escape your house or lose their way in your neighborhood. In addition to getting your pet microchipped, get them used to wearing harnesses, martingale collars, or even custom dog collars designed especially for them. You can attach ID tags to your pet’s collar or harness containing their name, your name, and your contact information for the reference of anyone who might pick them up if they get lost.
