DLNR Animal Clinics

Beautify CNMI! and PAWS want you to know that Dr. dela Cruz, Director of DLNR, holds a clinic every other Tuesday at Animal Health from 8 a.m. to 11 a.m.

At the clinics, Dr. dela Cruz administers vaccinations for parvovirus, leptospirosis, canine distemper,coronavirus, and infectious canine hepatitis. The cost of a combo-vaccination is $10.00 and a parvo shot is $5.00.

Dr. dela Cruz also treats skin diseases associated with mange, ticks, and fleas. The clinic usually charges $5.00 per treatment for sarcoptic mange, which requires a minimum of two visits, depending upon the severity of the disease and the animal's response to the treatment. Complete treatment for a severe case of sarcoptic mange is usually less than $50.00 - so don't dump that dog - treat that dog!!

Upon request, Dr. dela Cruz can provide a prescription for Revolution. Revolution is a topical parasiticide that is applied to the skin of dogs six weeks of age or older, and is used to: prevent heartworm; kill fleas, flea eggs, ticks, and ear mite infestation, AND kills roundworms and hookworms. Revolution is also used to treat and control sarcopic mange. A prescription for Revolution costs $5.00.

The next scheduled clinic is:

Tuesday, April 17, 2007
From 8:00 a.m. until 11:00 a.m.
DLNR Health Center in As Lito.


The clinics are operated on a first-come, first-service basis, so it is best to get their early and plan on staying for at least an hour.
