Cheyenne WY Okays Rabies Medical Exemption

Cheyenne WY pet owners have reason to rejoice this holiday season. On December 8, 2008, the Cheyenne City Council passed a 3 year rabies ordinance which included a medical exemption for sick animals. Credit goes to the efforts of Wyoming dog owners, led by Karon Volk of Karontara Irish Wolfhounds, who initially raised concerns about the city's outdated annual booster protocol.

Pet owners now have the option to have their animal companions vaccinated once every three years. Monday, the Cheyenne City Council voted 8-2 to change the city's rabies vaccine ordinance.
