Rabies: Diagnosis, prevention & the value of vaccination

Rabies is a dangerous, fatal viral disease that can be contracted by animals and humans. Animals are typically the transmitters and dogs alone are responsible for 99% of related deaths. For this reason, prevention efforts should primarily be focused on canines.

If you have the smallest suspicion that your pet may have been exposed to the rabies virus, don’t ignore your instincts. Safely transport your pet to the nearest veterinary clinic for inspection. Be careful around his or her mouth and rather wear thick gloves if you have a pair handy.


World Rabies Day is observed annually on 28 September to raise awareness about rabies prevention.

It is the first and only global day of action and awareness for rabies prevention. Individuals, NGOs and governments are therefore encouraged to use this opportunity to create awareness and encourage prevention.
