KEEPING U.S. VETS CURRENT ON RABIES REGULATIONS
Government requirements for pet vaccination have been perhaps the single most important initiative in dramatically reducing rabies rates in many countries, including the United States. Merial now sponsors RabiesAware.org, an online information resource led by Dr. Richard Ford DVM, MS, Emeritus Professor of Medicine, North Carolina State University, College of Veterinary Medicine. This first-of-its-kind website tracks detailed regulations for rabies vaccination of domestic animals in the U.S. These important rules vary state-by-state and can change frequently, so the tool helps U.S. veterinarians—and pet owners—stay abreast of the latest requirements.
