EDEN, N.Y. (WIVB) — The Eden Veterinary Clinic has warned locals to make sure their animals have had recent rabies vaccines.
The warning comes after a cat with rabies was found in the town. According to the clinic, the animal scratched and bit somewhere in the area of New Oregon Rd.
The clinic says that post-exposure vaccines for people are painful and expensive, so preemptive action is encouraged.
Domesticated animals exposed to the disease must be either quarantined or euthanized.
