Glen Ellen cat rabies case prompts more vaccination clinics

VIP PetCare of Windsor is adding more clinics to vaccinate pets against rabies until the end of this month.

The additional vaccinations, which cost $5, were started after a Glen Ellen family's pet cat contracted rabies and bit family members. The cat had not been vaccinated against rabies.

The incident, the first time a domestic pet has contracted rabies in Sonoma County since 1997, prompted a call from the Sonoma County Department of Health Services for residents to have their pets vaccinated.

For information on the clinics, contact VIPPetCare.com or 800-427-7973.
