A kitten in Central Alabama recently tested positive for rabies, leading health officials to issue a statewide public plea.
According to a statement from the Alabama Department of Public Health, the owner took a group of very young kittens about a month ago. One of the kittens, which showed neurological signs, unfortunately passed away and was immediately taken for veterinary care.
The kitten passed away in Autauga County, but ADHP has issued a warning that applies to all of Alabama.
All dogs, cats, and ferrets 12 weeks of age and older must have up-to-date rabies vaccinations, as mandated by state law.
