Rabies Control: Don’t Let a Dog Bite Ruin your Holiday Season
Our pets put up with a lot over the holidays, from toddlers bouncing on their ribs to being dressed in embarrassing outfits. Most of the time they accept it with a wag of their tail but sometimes, they literally “snap.”
The Health Department often sees a rise in animal bites over holidays requiring medical care for the victim and a 10-day quarantine for the animal.
If your pet is unvaccinated for rabies, or you do not have a suitable area that it can be quarantined away from other pets, family and friends, it must be quarantined at a Veterinary Clinic for the 10 days at your expense.
Most bites are preventable so this holiday season, protect your pet and your guests by ensuring there is adequate adult supervision around pets and giving your pet a quiet, secure place to go when company comes.
