Safe Housing for Dogs and Cats
Our animal hospital provides rabies quarantine housing for pets that have bitten a person or another animal, or have been bitten by another animal. If your pet has come in contact with the rabies disease, we offer safe housing and quarantine arrangments at Mayde Creek for a comfortable stay. As required by the county, the typical time of quarantine is 10 days. During your pet’s stay, he or she will be carefully observed by our doctors and staff, and we are here to answer any questions you may have regarding your pet’s recovery.
