Rabies


Rabies

Rabies is a fatal viral disease carried by wildlife and other mammals in our area.  It is a zoonotic disease, meaning it can be passed from animals to humans.

The disease is transmitted through the saliva of an infected animal, usually through a bite.

Vaccination is required by Virginia state law for all dogs and cats.

Symptoms

The rabies vaccination is given annually to cats and initially as a 1-year vaccine, and then every 3 years to dogs.
