Immunizing Your Dog

Information about Immunizing Your Dog Against Rabies


By the time they are 3 months of age, all dogs must be vaccinated against rabies by a licensed veterinarian according to a regulation of Lorain County General Health District.


Any licensed Veterinarian in Lorain County will provide immunizations. Check the yellow pages listing under Veterinarian or do a web search for Veterinarians in your area.


The answer to this is simple - any warm-blooded animal (including humans) can contract rabies. It is almost always fatal. Rabies immunization helps to prevent contraction of the disease. Rabies is normally transferred through a bite. This can only occur when animals are together, so it is safer to keep your dog confined. Animal bites must be reported to your Board of Health.
