Careful examination prior to all vaccinations

Ensure Your Pet is in Good Health

This required core vaccine is important for your pet’s health and our community overall. We use the latest veterinary technology to ensure your pet is properly examined prior to vaccinations. This is to confirm your pet is in good health before receiving the vaccine. We may temporarily refrain from vaccinating your pet if they are deemed to be ill or if their age would introduce potential health concerns.

What you need to know about the rabies vaccination

Am I required to vaccinate my pet?

Yes, all dogs, cats, and ferrets in Florida must be immunized against rabies. This is required at intervals of one year or every third year at the discretion of your vet. At no point should you stop taking your pet for rabies vaccinations. Your veterinarian will determine if the vaccine should be temporarily postponed due to health reasons.

When should my pet get their first rabies vaccine?

The youngest you should vaccinate your pet against rabies is three months. You vet will be able to guide you to the best first vaccination date for your pet. You are required by the state of Florida to vaccinate your pet at four months old. Your pet will then be considered immunized 28 days after the initial vaccination.

How do I know my pet is overdue for their rabies vaccine?

In the state of Florida, even if your pet is past due for their booster by only one day they are considered overdue. Once vaccinated your overdue pet will immediately be considered currently immunized.

What happens if my pet bites a person?

Pets who bite a person can be subject to quarantine for 10-days following the bite. If the pet has previously been exposed to rabies, euthanasia and testing may be required. This would be carried out at the pet owner’s expense. This makes vaccination of the utmost importance for your pet’s wellbeing. And remember, if your pet is ever exposed to rabies in any capacity they should be immediately re-vaccinated.

Put your pet’s safety first

Protection for 1 to 3 years

We take into consideration the vaccination history of your pet and the last immunization for rabies received. Three year rabies vaccinations are a possiblity for the right candidate. Talk to our veterinary experts to learn more about rabies vaccination frequency.
