Today is World Rabies Day. Rabies vaccine is required by Michigan State Law. Why? Because the disease is untreatable and deadly to all who contract it. Rabies IS IN OUR AREA! Talking about hitting close to home, Dr. Jen’s husband found a dead bat in their garage in 2010. Clint picked up the bat while cleaning the garage, and brought it here to Northwood Animal Hospital to have it tested. It was positive. Almost the same thing happened to another vet in TC recently. Clint had to receive the post-exposure rabies vaccine series to assure his safety, which total $10,000. If your dog or cat is NOT up-to-date on their rabies vaccine, please call us today!
