ELBA, Ala. (WDHN)—Vaccinations of a different sort are a concern among veterinarians this time of year.
The summer months are when doctors see the most cases of rabies in wild animals.
So recently, Dr. Kelsie Jennings of the Enterprise Animal Hospital along with his staff held a vaccination clinic at Elba’s Legion Park.
Dr. Jennings is also Coffee County’s Rabies Inspector, and with children out of school for the summer, he’s asking pet owners to be sure their dog or cat has received the rabies vaccine because if a person actually gets rabies, it’s 100 percent fatal.
Dr. Jennings strongly recommends you get your dog or cat an annual rabies vaccination, or even a multiple-year shot now available which can provide protection for your pet for several years in a row.
