National Mutt Day

National Mutt Day

Here’s an interesting offer from Table Mountain Veterinary Clinic:

National Mutt Day is July 31st! And to celebrate our furry critters who are “Heinz 57’s” we are offering genetic testing for $99, a $31 discount so you can find out what breeds your “mutt” is made of. Not only is the genetic testing neat to find out what breeds your pet is, the results can also help map out potential health risks related to each breed. So our Doctors can help you look out for any early indicators. Bring us a picture in or email a picture of your “mutt” for our Mutt Wall.
