Why Your Pet Needs The Rabies Vaccine
The rabies virus is perhaps one of the most well-known and feared viruses. There’s a reason why states across the country make the rabies vaccine mandatory. Rabies is a deadly virus that attacks the nervous system. It can be spread to any mammal and is fatal once outward signs of rabies begin to appear. The rabies virus can influence a pet’s behavior in a number of ways, with the following being some of the most common symptoms:
- Excessive drooling
The rabies virus can also spread to humans who come into contact with an infected animal’s saliva. The only way to fight against the rabies virus is through prevention. Get guidance from your veterinarian on how frequently your pet needs rabies vaccinations, as the frequency may vary by location. Be careful letting your pets roam free, particularly in areas where there may be wild or stray animals. If you see a wild animal exhibiting signs of the rabies virus, contact animal control immediately, as this can pose a serious threat to the community. If you suspect your pet may have been bitten by a wild animal, contact your veterinarian immediately. Similarly, if you or a family member or friend has been bitten, contact your doctor immediately so you can get treated. Once the rabies virus gets into the intermediate and advanced stages of development, then it may be too late.
