Routine vaccination: keeping rabies under control.

Rabies is a horrible and deadly disease. Once signs of it appear in an animal or human, death usually occurs within 10 days. Fortunately, rabies is also a disease that can be completely prevented.

Vaccination is nearly 100% effective in preventing rabies in dogs and in people. It is also highly successful in preventing rabies developing in people who are suspected of having been exposed to rabies virus.
