Rabies is a very real and 100 percent deadly disease that affects all mammals including humans. By having your animals vaccinated you can help protect your animals and your families from this disease. Rabies is often seen in wildlife, especially bats, foxes and skunks. These animals are very common in our county, especially in the more rural areas. If a pet has an interaction with wildlife, a rabies vaccination could be the factor that saves that pets life.
