Rabies Prevention Tips
Rabies among household pets may be avoided by taking the following precautions:
- Keep your pets away from stray animals and wildlife by confining them to your own lawn and by walking them on a leash at all times when leaving your property.
- Keep trash in tightly closed trash cans so as not to attract stray or wild animals.
- Vaccinating all dogs and cats against rabies on a regular basis–as prescribed by your veterinarian–is required by law.
