Join us for World Rabies Day to prevent the spread of Rabies.
There have been many reports of seeing raccoons, foxes, and bats even right here in the city, & they are the most common wildlife to become rabid. Rabies is a virus that attacks the central nervous system. Rabies is spread through animal bites from an infected animal. Exposure to saliva into the mouth or a scratch is another way animals get rabies. Once symptoms appear it is always fatal.
Humans can also become infected and it is fatal unless immediately treated after exposure. There is no treatment for vaccinated pets. If an unvaccinated pet bites a human, euthanasia or a prolonged quarantine can be required.
It is important to vaccinate your pets for Rabies, & keep current on their boosters. Also, avoid contact with wild animals, & discourage them from entering your yard by picking up all potential sources of food they can reach.
This year, we are offering $5 Rabies vaccination for dogs, cats, and ferrets with no charge for the exam if scheduled through our daily vaccine clinics during the months of September & October, 2022. There are limited slots available, so call now to get the appointment that works best for your schedule.

After our World Rabies Day special is over, you can still get the Rabies vaccine for your dog, cat, or ferret for only $5 with a paid exam within 6 months and with the purchase of a DHP/RCP vaccine.
