Olmsted County veterinarians hold rabies vaccination clinic

Posted: Updated:
ROCHESTER, Minn. (KTTC) -- Cat, dog, and ferret lovers brought their pets to the 56th annual Rabies Vaccination Clinic on Wednesday to get their shots.

The clinic, sponsored by Olmsted County Veterinarians, Olmsted County Public Health Services, and the Rochester City Clerk, is taking place in Rochester, Byron, Eyota, and Stewartville.

While most rabies cases happen in wild animals such as skunks and raccoons, wild animals are often the source of rabies exposure for domestic pets. 

Many who attended this year's clinic have done so in the past.

"It's just convenient, dog needs to get taken care of," said Eric Pearson of Rochester, who attended the clinic. "It just works out nice, cheap and convenient."

Pet owners are encouraged to have their animals in either a crate, or on a leash when they arrive with their pets.

Each rabies shot is $15.
