Rabies is a disease we usually think of as having well under control with vaccinations. But the deadly disease seems to emerge each spring and summer as a problem. Rabies is a scary disease because it is fatal to both people and pets and every year we should look at keeping ourselves and our pets (both dogs and cats) safe. Rabies is also a highly regulated disease and all pet owners must follow the vaccination requirements to help keep this killer at bay. Vaccination rules vary according to where you live, so advice from your veterinarian is essential.
