Rabies & Vaccinations

The importance of vaccinating your pet against rabies and other diseases can't be stressed enough, especially in light of the recent rabid cat and raccoon that were found in two nearby neighborhoods (see the  ABC 33/40 story).

Rabies is almost always caused by the bite of an infected animal that has the rabies virus in its saliva. Even if your pet has been vaccinated, it's still important to contact your veterinarian if you feel your pet has been in contact with an infected animal.
At Altadena Valley Animal Clinic, our goal is to help keep your pet happy and healthy. Check out our vaccination video below and our Pet Health web site page for more information. Pet Health
