Today is World Rabies Day. It’s a great time to review your pet’s vaccines to ensure they are up to date. With outbreaks occurring in southern Ontario and eastern Ontario please ensure your pet is up to date before you travel to these areas. Speak to our Lockerby Animal Hospital team if you have any question about rabies and your pet.
Rabies is transmitted though saliva from one mammal to another. It is a disease caused by a virus and is almost always fatal so it is extremely important to vaccinate your pet as a preventative measure.
