Rabid Cat in Olmsted County

Yikes! There has been a positive rabies case diagnosed in a young cat in Olmsted County. This cat was an outdoor kitty that was bitten by a skunk. Unfortunately the kitty bit many people before it was diagnosed so all those folks need to be vaccinated.  The whole sad situation is a potent reminder to keep all our pets up to date on their rabies vaccine!! It’s an inexpensive insurance policy to say the least..... For information on rabies in animals and to view a map of positive cases in Minnesota visit the Board of Animal Health’s website.
