Rabies clinic set in Norwich

A rabies clinic will be held from 9:30 to 11:30 a.m. Saturday, March 19, at the Norwich Fire Station.

New York State Public Health Rabies Law requires all dogs, cats and domesticated ferrets to receive immunization against rabies no later than four months of age, and the state Agriculture and Markets Department requires dogs to be licensed at four months of age.

Dogs, cats or ferrets that are not currently vaccinated against rabies and involved in biting an individual must be confined for 10 days at an approved facility at the owner's expense. If the animal is currently vaccinated and involved in a bite incident, it may be confined at home for the 10-day period.

An animal that is bitten by or exposed to a rabid or suspected rabid animal and is currently immunized must have a vaccine booster dose administered within five days. If unvaccinated, the animal must be, if approved, adequately quarantined for six months in accordance with Public Health Law.

When attending a rabies clinic, animals must be under control. Animals vaccinated for the very first time must be revaccinated the following year to qualify for three-year coverage at that time. Owners should bring their pets' previous vaccination records to verify the pet is eligible for 3-year coverage.

Rabies clinics are free. Donations will be accepted.

For more information, contact the Chenango County Department of Public Health at 337-1673.
