PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – Just like humans, pets should get vaccines to prevent disease. But the cost of such treatment can add up and that keeps some dog and cat owners away from the vet.

Rabies shots are required by law, but veterinarians also recommend jabs for distemper, parvovirus, and more:

“It might not be unusual to pay $65 and up plus the cost of an office visit.”

Wendy Marano with the Pennsylvania SPCA says that can make keeping your pet healthy an expensive proposition.

So starting today, the PSPCA is giving dog and cat owners a break:

“For just $25, pet owners can receive rabies and distemper vaccinations; that’s for cats or dogs. And for slightly additional fees they can get additional vaccinations.”

There’s no need to register — just bring your pet’s health records, if you have them.

Sunday’s shots will be given from 10am-4pm at Cutters Mill Pet Store on Route 70 East in Cherry Hill, and there are more than a dozen other opportunities in Philly and the suburbs through the beginning of June:
