Rabies Information
 
Rabies is a deadly disease caused by a virus that attacks the central nervous system.  The virus is present primarily in the saliva, brain tissue and spinal fluid of a rabid animal.  Rabies can affect all mammals.
Pets can be protected from rabies by having them inoculated annually by your Veterinarian.
