Information for Summer (June – August)
Summertime tips for the care of your pets during hot weather:
Never leave an animal in a closed car, even with the window cracked. It can quickly get up to more than 130 degrees in a closed car in the sun!
Exercise pets in the early morning or in the evening to avoid the mid-day heat. Avoid hot asphalt or concrete as the pads on your pet's feet can get burned.
Provide lots of cool, fresh water in your bowl, that can't be turned over A pet can get sunburned, so don't shave your pet in an attempt to keep him/her cool. Provide shade for pets that are kept outside.
High temperatures are especially hard on elderly pets and young puppies and kittens. Just remember -- if it's too hot for you to be in the sun, it is probably too hot for your pets too!

Below is KY legislation requirements on Rabies vaccination. People often don't know KY requires Rabies vaccinations. Rabies is a very serious, fatal disease which can be transmitted through a bite. Vaccinating our pets is not only important to protect our pets, but to protect all people who come into contact with the pet. A bite from an unvaccinated pet becomes a serious and often complicated ordeal involving diagnostic labs and the public health department. The best, safest, legal, and most responsible thing for a pet owner is to get the vaccinations as described below.
The vaccination schedule for all dogs, cats, and ferrets shall be as follows:
1. All dogs, cats, and ferrets four (4) months of age and older shall be vaccinated against rabies.
2. Dogs, cats, and ferrets initially vaccinated shall be re-vaccinated one (1) year after the initial vaccination regardless of the type of vaccine used or age of the animal at the time of vaccination.
3. Thereafter the period of time required for re-vaccination shall be dependent upon the type of vaccine administered. The date of expiration shall be indicated on the vaccination certificate. The current re-vaccination recommendations of the National Association of State Public Health Veterinarians, Inc. may be utilized in determining expiration dates of vaccines.
********So, their first rabies vaccination is good for 1 year, then we use a 3 year rabies vaccine and will re-vaccinate every 3 years thereafter.************** We also recommend rabies vaccinations for horses as well.
