Our vet team at Solomons Veterinary Medical Center is proud to offer a wide range of advanced and comprehensive pet wellness services at our facility, serving Solomons, Lusby, Broomes Island, Dowell, Port Republic, Prince Frederick, St. Leonard, St. Mary's, and California, MD. One of the most important services we offer are vaccines--including the state-mandated rabies vaccine.
It's every pet owner's right and responsibility to make informed decisions about their animal's health. That said, even though not every vaccine we offer at our Solomons vet facility is mandated by law, our team strongly recommends that you vaccinate your animal for a variety of illnesses. Why?
In the State of Maryland, vaccinating your pet against rabies is required by law. Only licensed veterinarians--or a veterinary professional who is under the direct supervision of a licensed vet--can administer rabies vaccinations to dogs, cats, and ferrets. Rabies vaccine can be given as young as 3 months of age although Maryland statute does state 4 months. We usually try to give it as soon as they turn 3 months. Any additional dosages that may be required should be administered per the instructions on the vaccine label.
Our Solomons vet staff always takes the time necessary to explain the important information you need to know (the "when" and the "what") to successfully vaccinate and protect your pet.
If you live in Solomons, Lusby, Broomes Island, Dowell, Port Republic, Prince Frederick, St. Leonard, St. Mary's, or California, MD and are looking for a veterinarian team you can trust with your pet's health needs, call Solomons Veterinary Medicine Center today at (410) 326-4300.
