Every year, 10 million dogs are poisoned, stoned, and electrocuted to death, in an attempt to stop the spread of rabies. The best way to protect dogs is to vaccinate them.

Rabies causes more than 59,000 human deaths every year and unvaccinated dogs are the main source of human rabies deaths, contributing up to 99% of all rabies transmission to humans

Vaccines have saved millions of lives within the last century and they really do play a vital role in the prevention of serious infectious diseases and the costs associated with it. As a trusted and loyal companion, your dog or cat depends on you to keep them healthy.

Rabies is a zoonotic disease (which means that people can become infected if they make contact with an infected animal). The virus is shed in saliva and is spread mainly by the bite of an infected animal. Rabies affects the brain and is uniformly fatal once a person or animals show clinical signs.
