*Rabies is 100% fatal. There are no treatments currently available, and it’s contagious. Prevention is crucial. The rabies vaccination may be required annually or every 3 years, depending on the vaccine used. In the state of Pennsylvania, it is required by law for veterinarians to give all dogs and cats the Rabies vaccine continuously throughout the pet’s lifetime.

**The FeLV vaccine for Feline Leukemia is only given to cats who may have an unexpected exposure or may have been exposed to unvaccinated cats. Please ask your Vet to discuss if this vaccine is appropriate for your pet.
