For licensing purposes, a licensed veterinarian must give the rabies vaccination. A vaccination certificate signed by the veterinarian must be supplied as proof of vaccination.
Vaccinations given by an owner, animal breeder, pet store, as well as out-of-country, are not valid for licensing purposes.
Depending on the vaccine given, the rabies vaccination is good for one to three years. It is always best to consult with your veterinarian concerning vaccinations, treatment and health questions regarding your pet. Vaccinations given at a pet supply store are valid if a licensed veterinarian administers them.
Animal-inflicted injuries should be reported immediately. If the injury occurs in the City of Jenks, call Police at 918-299-6311 option 0. If the injury occurs outside the city limits of Jenks, report the injury to the local authority. If possible, confine the animal first and then call the appropriate number. Tell the person answering the phone where the animal is. Try to describe the breed, size, color or any distinct markings on the animal, where it may live, and if it's wearing a collar or tags. A Police Officer will be dispatched to your location to complete an animal bite report.
The animal is impounded and observed or sent to the lab for rabies virus testing. It may be quarantined per Police Department orders at an approved veterinary hospital at the owner's expense.
