According to the Virginia Department of Health, 10 cases of rabies have been identified within our practice area since January of this year.  This serves as an important reminder to protect our horses from this fatal disease.  Also remember that this is a disease that infects and is fatal for human beings exposed to affected animals.  If your horses are not currently up to date on their rabies vaccination, please call today and schedule an appointment.
