World Rabies Day 2013

This years theme:

Rabies: understand it to defeat it.

Rabies is a fatal disease. There are multiple accounts of people who have died after being bitten by a rabid animal. Especially important is to educate your younger children so if they come in to contact with possibly infected animal they will not touch it. If you suspect your pet has been bitten by a rabid animal you must seek veterinarian assistance as quickly as possible. 

The Global Alliance for Rabies Control offers information for those of you who'd like to learn more. Please become educated. If your pet is due for it's vaccine, please get it done. This disease is almost always fatal. Help us to keep it under control. It's the Law.
