Rabies is one of the most deadly diseases for pets, however it is also one of the most preventable. Rabies is transmitted through the saliva or blood from one infected mammal to another. Primary carriers include: bats, racoons, skunks and fox.
It’s important to remember that all cats and dogs (including indoor-only cats) must be vaccinated against rabies. Although unlikely, infected wildlife can enter your home and infect pets.
