All animals in Lafayette Parish over the age of four months must be vaccinated against rabies by a licensed veterinarian and registered with the city yearly. There are fines associated with failure to vaccinate pet against rabies. Pet owners are instructed to consult their veterinarians regarding other vaccinations pet should be given.
Due to the vaccine required, ferrets are not eligible for vaccination at the annual rabies clinics and must be vaccinated at a veterinarian's office.
