Rabies Vaccinations

Rabies is a disease, caused by a virus, which can infect all mammals, including humans. Rabies is almost always fatal to animals and people once symptoms of the disease appear, which is why the State of California mandates reporting of all animal bites for the protection of the victim; whether person or animal. Butte County has many veterinary clinics that offer low-cost vaccination clinics.
