Protect Your Family – Dogs and Cats Must Be Vaccinated
The Health Unit in partnership with local vets and municipalities sponsors Low-Cost Rabies Vaccination Clinics. The goal of holding these clinics is to help provide rabies vaccinations to as many cats and dogs as possible. By increasing the vaccination coverage in pets we will help to minimize the potential transmission of rabies to humans.
These low-cost clinics are open to all residents of Leeds, Grenville and Lanark and we encourage people that may have numerous pets to ensure if they do not regularly see a vet to bring their cats and dogs to these clinics. Domestic animals at a higher risk of exposure to rabid animals include:
- Barn cats
- Hunting dogs that while running in the bush have a potential of interacting with wildlife that may have rabies
World Rabies Day is held in September each year to bring awareness to rabies issues around the world. Rabies is a deadly disease that can be prevented. Did you know that a person dies from Rabies every 10 minutes throughout the world? Help prevent the spread of rabies by vaccinating your pet dog or cat. Visit this website for more information on World Rabies Day.
See you in September!
