In light of the recent rabid cat sighting at Lake Sweetwater, the Sweetwater Animal Control would like to inform all pet-owners of the legal responsibilities of rabies vaccinations.
â€¢ Texas state law requires pet owners to vaccinate their dogs and cats against rabies by 4 months of age.
â€¢ Dogs and cats must be vaccinated against rabies either every year or every three years depending on the type of rabies vaccine used.
â€¢ Local ordinances may have more stringent requirements than state laws about rabies vaccinations.
