Our area (Barrow/Jackson Co) has had multiple cases of rabies confirmed in the last year. A skunk entered a beagle pen, 13 beagles had to be killed because they were not currently vaccinated.
Two other homes had coons come up and attack dogs in the yard. 4 dogs in a yard were put down. A dog on a chain at the other home was put down.
Two cows were diagnosed with rabies nearby also.
These were dogs in their own yards and pens. What are the chances of a dog running into a rabid animal in the woods? And you never know until too late.
Don't take a chance with your dogs or yours and your family's lives by putting off vaccination. Treatment for rabies exposure runs right around $20,000 these days.
( yep, thats Twenty thousand, ask me how I know)

Hunting seasons are over, but make sure your rabies vaccinations on your hunting dogs are current. Don't wait.

What's those vaccines go for around y'alls neck of the woods? Jeffers has them but you can't ship it to Ga.

Great advice. Takes me back to my old hound days in South Fl. Always kept my dogs shots up to date.

We have several rabies clinics around here. I load them up and go to them and the vet gives them the shots on the tailgate, get all my paperwork and tags and im good to go.
