All dogs and cats over the age of three (3) months must have shots to stop them from getting rabies.
Talk to your vet about which rabies shot is the best for your pet. Your vet will give you a form with the date and type of shot given to your pet. A tag for your pets collar is also given to you. The form proves you have had the shots done. Keep the form in a safe place.
Dogs and cats sick with rabies give the illness to other animals. All animals that get sick with rabies die. This is why it is the law to have all dogs and cats have to have rabies shots. A fine can be given to all who do not have up to date rabies shots for their pets.
Please make sure your pet is up to date with rabies shots.
