Keep your Hunting dog's safe as well as your family.
Our Animal Control Admin. told me only 10% of dogs and cats
in Webster County are vaccinated.
Here is some expert information I received.
Rabies is possible in all fur bearing mammals. And can be
contracted through touch as well a bites. A lick on an open wound
can result in contracting rabies. Racoon's, skunks
and Possum are the most frequent carriers. It is also deadly
and cannot be cured. The only possible treatment if given
within the first 24 hours is the vaccination. It isn't given
preemptively because it is given in a series of three shots per
day for ten days and they are given into the abdominal cavity.

We are required to vacinate our hunting dogs. It seems to work.

My dog was vacinated every year on advice from the vet. She killed gophers with a passion, and they are too good a friend to take chances.

The recommended script in my area for rabies vaccination is every year til they're two years old then every three years thereafter.

Sounds like a good plan. You guys have it right. Those who care about their dogs don't miss the shots.

Good thing you guys do that. The Animal Control officer said he has trouble getting people to do vaccinations.
