(KETK) Smith County — Rabies is a constant problem here in East Texas.
Which is why every year, the Smith County Texas A&M Agrilife Extension Service holds a number of clinics across the county.
All week long, clinics will be set up across Smith County, offering rabies vaccinations for ten-dollars an animal.
Rabies is one of the more dangerous diseases your dog or cat can contract, mainly due to that fact it can also be transferred to humans.
And no matter how well you think your pet is protected, this will always be ten dollars well spent.
We have a list of where all the clinics will be located for the rest of the week below.
You do not need to live in Smith County to get vaccinated at these locations either.
