Are your pets up-to-date on rabies vaccinations?

Call us to check your pet's records and schedule an appointment, if needed.

The best way to protect your pet is to make sure their rabies shots are up to date, keep them on a leash when walking, and to call animal control if you encounter a sick or injured animal. An April 2017 Fox 31 Denver news website article warns "Jefferson County Animal Control is putting pet owners on high alert to watch out for animals with rabies. There have been four reports of skunks with rabies this year. Twelve animals throughout the state have tested positive for rabies."

Watch this short video and visit the CDPHE website to learn more about rabies.
