04/28/17  Rabies Clinics Going On This Weekend


A rabies clinic in Dallas County is scheduled for tomorrow, sponsored by the Dallas County 4-H program and Fordyce animal clinic. Dallas County Extension agent Keith Gresham says there are eight different locations throughout the county where you can take your cat or dog to get a rabies vaccination.

Gresham says the fee is $8.00 per animal.

State law requires all cats and dogs four months of age or older to be vaccinated against rabies. Only shots given by a veterinarian are recognized by the state.
