Animal Bite Prevention:
The health department assists law enforcement, veterinarians, and health providers in assuring that animal bites are taken care of and quarantine orders followed.

Animal Bites and Rabies:
Animal owners play a huge role in preventing animal bites. If a dog or cat bites a person, state law requires that the animal be quarantined and observed for signs of rabies. The quarantine period depends on whether the animal is vaccinated for rabies. A vaccinated dog or cat has a considerable shorter quaratine period.

Owners are responsible for covering the costs to quarantine and care for their animal. Failure to comply with quantine orders issued by law enforcement may result in citation.
