If you are not a pet owner and don’t like unpleasant health topics, we advise you to turn back now. We have a few other posts up today with plenty of deals, discounts, and freebies that don’t fall under the category of bathroom conversation. This is your last chance to turn back before we let our interested Cheapsters know about the FREE parasite exams going on tomorrow.
Still with us? Okay, here’s to starting the year by making sure your pet has a clean colon. From 8:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. on Friday, January 3, Olive Branch Parke Veterinary Clinic is offering FREE pet intestinal parasite exams. Located at 1480 Olive Branch Parke Lane (Suite 600) in Greenwood, southside Cheapsters may recognize the local business. This freebie is a great opportunity to be sure your pet is healthy. And if the parasite exam turns up positive for any unwanted bugs, the veterinarian will be able to address the issue with the proper medication before the problem worsens. (And that, you’ll have to pay for.)
The unfortunate part of this deal, however, is it will require you to provide a sample from your pet. And when we say a sample, we don’t mean a piece of petrified and fossilized dung from the far corner of the yard from four months ago, but a fresh and recent one. It sounds disgusting (and frankly, it is), but parasites can adversely affect the health of your pet and even the humans in your family. Sometimes you have to get your hands a little dirty for a freebie, but we recommend gloves for this one.
