Rabies in a Cat
An eight-year-old Stevens County cat was aggressive towards people, panting and having difficulty walking for three days before its death. The animal had never been vaccinated for rabies and tested positive for the disease on April 18. The cat’s four two-week-old kittens have since died.
Again, please keep you pets vaccinated. Your pets are members of you family and by not vaccinating them, the whole family is at risk.

Another Rabies Alert
A steer from a herd of cattle in Nobles County tested positive for rabies at the end of February. One month prior to the steer becoming ill and aggressive, a skunk was seen on the property. The herd veterinarian treated the ill steer before its death two days later. The veterinarian has been recommended to be given post-exposure prophylaxis shots.
Again, this is just another grim reminder of the presence of this deadly disease in our wildlife and how it spreads to our animals. Please protect your pets and your family by keeping your pets’ rabies vaccine current.
On January 31, an owner of a feedlot noticed one of his cows appeared to be showing signs of labor two months before her expected calving date. The following day, the cow was walking strangely and eventually appeared paralyzed and unable to walk. The cow tested positive for rabies on February 2. This is the fourth positive rabies case in Minnesota this year. This case follows three rabid skunks that were found in Benton, Stearns, and Wright Counties in January.
Rabies is still, unfortunately, prelalent in our state, sticking around in our skunks and bats and wild animals. Please protect your pet from this deadly disease and keep your pet’s rabies vaccine current. If you have any questions or concerns about your pet or would like to check on your pet’s vaccine status, please call us at 763-574-9892.
