Clinics to give low-cost rabies shots to pets in Beaufort County


The S.C. Department of Health and Environmental Control and local veterinarians are sponsoring low-cost rabies-vaccination clinics in Beaufort County in April.

Vaccination fees may vary by clinic location, but are not to exceed $10 per pet, according to a DHEC news release.

Dogs must be on a leash, and cats in a box or carrier.

For most vaccines, a pet must be at least 3 months old. Upon vaccination, the pet should wear a rabies tag, provided by the veterinarian, around its neck. The licensed veterinarian will also provide a certificate of vaccination, the release said.
