Bell County, Texas Adopts 3-Year Rabies Interval


Halla-flippin'-jeuia!

The Temple Daily Telegram reports that county commissioners are adopting the state of Texas guidelines that require rabies at an interval of every three years at the discretion of a licensed veterinarian.

It took long enough.

Advocates in favor of relaxing outdated rabies laws engaged in a heavy discourse with the county commissioners, Killeen officials and local veterinarians 14 months ago. The state of Texas approved the three-year interval in 2003. Since then, Bell County was the only Texas county that held mandatory rabies vaccinations to a stricter standard.

Whatever. We'll take it! Thank you.

Sorry to say but Dewitt county also requires one year vaccinations and of course the vets endorse it.
