Default Rabies

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.
