As part of a community service, Central Veterinary Associates provided free medical advice to pet owners during its “Ask The Vets” event, which took place at the 2nd annual Nassau Barkfest at the Harry Chapin Lakeside Theater at Eisenhower Park in East Meadow on October 19.
Pet owners had the opportunity to address any concerns they may have about their animals and learn more about what services the veterinary hospital offers. Those who visited Central Vets’ vendor’s table during the event received coupons for free rabies vaccinations and wellness exams.
Nassau Barkfest was presented by the Nassau County Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals. The event featured vendors, music and a pet costume contest, in which 500 pets competed for Best Costume, Most Original Costume and Scariest Costume.
