Rabies is a threat to our companion animals as well as ourselves. It is a disease caused by a virus found in the saliva of infected animals. The most common carriers of rabies are infected bats, raccoons, foxes, skunks, dogs and cats.
Transmitted to pets and humans by bites, or possibly by contamination of an open cut, treatment to an infected person is critical. Untreated, rabies causes a painful death.
In cooperation with local veterinary partners, CVHS conducts low-cost rabies clinics throughout the year. These clinics help raise awareness and make the cost of the vaccine affordable.
