Rabies Awareness and Prevention

September 28, 2016


Pet owners are likely aware of Rabies as a result of state-mandated vaccinations that help prevent our canine and feline companions from becoming infected. But, what kind of infectious organism is Rabies, how are pets exposed to it, and why is the Rabies vaccination legally required? Additionally, what happens if your pet has previously had an adverse response to a Rabies vaccination or has an underlying ailment that could be aggravated if a Rabies vaccination is given? September 28, 2016 commemorates World Rabies Day, a Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and Alliance for Rabies Control (ARC) initiative to educate the global community about prevention and control of the disease. Learn more about Rabies in this article Rabies Awareness and Prevention.
