How would my pet acquire this disease?
Rabies is spread by the saliva of an infected animal. This disease can be spread through bite wounds, sharing community water bowls, etc. This disease attacks the central nervous system of an animal causing it to show neurological signs such as aggressive behavior, abnormal gait, hypersalivation and difficulty swallowing. This disease can also be zoonotic, which means it can be transmitted to humans.

Absolutely! It is very important to vaccinate your pets for this potentially fatal disease, and it’s the only vaccine required by law for small animals.
At what age can my pet receive this vaccination?
Your pet can receive their initial vaccine at 12 weeks old.
