September 28th is World Rabies Day!
Rabies remains a major concern worldwide, killing more than 55,000 people every year. In the United States, one to two people die annually, and there were more than 6,000 reported cases of animal rabies in the U.S. in 2012.World Rabies Day was officially launched in 2007, and aims to raise awareness about the public health impact of human and animal rabies.

What can YOU do? Vaccinate your animals and keep them away from wildlife that can spread the disease. Rabies is 100% preventable. According to Dr. Charles Rupprecht, chief of the rabies program at the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, “Your local veterinarian plays a key role in controlling rabies.”  – That’s us here at EAH! Please ensure your pet is up to date on it’s rabies and other vaccines. Not sure? Give us a call at803.366.1950.
