Observations from Angela Lennox, DVM:

World Rabies Awareness Day is September 28th!

While human deaths from rabies are rare in the US and much of the developed world, it’s still a huge problem in developing countries, with children the primary victims.
Vaccination of pets (dogs, cats and FERRETS) is a huge contributor to rabies management.

Vaccination of ferrets for rabies is required in Indiana, and much of the US.  There is a single approved rabies vaccine for ferrets-call us if you need more information.

Can you name some of the most famous rabies victims in literature and the movies?  See how many of these you remember:

“Old Yeller”, in the 1957 Disney movie of the same name
“Mad Dog” in the famous book/movie “ To Kill a Mockingbird”
“Cujo” in Stephen King’s 1981 book/movie of the same name
Elaine, a popular character in the TV series “Seinfeld” season 5 episode 3 (she doesn’t really have it!)
