Rabies is a zoonotic disease, which means that people can become infected by an infected animal. The virus is shed in saliva and is spread mainly by the bite, scratch or lick of an infected animal.

Rabies affects the brain and is fatal once a person or animal shows clinical signs. Animals infected by rabies show changes in behaviour and neurological symptoms. They may show the following signs: excessive salivation, paralysis, inability to swallow, continuous vocalisation, aggressiveness or non-responsive behaviour.

Report any suspected rabid animals immediately to your state or private veterinarian, animal health technician or the police.

This year for #WorldRabiesDay, the GARC ( is placing emphasis on the theme of “One Health, Zero Deaths”.

The idea of One Health is hugely significant because it points to the fact that the health of humans, animals and the environment are inextricably linked and interdependent. Only through an inclusive approach of collaboration and participation in all related sectors can this lethal disease be eliminated.

SAVA encourages South Africans from all walks of life to vaccinate their dogs and cats – it is never too late to vaccinate!

28 September 2022 is #WorldRabiesDay! The theme for this year is “Rabies: One Health, Zero Deaths”, emphasising the need for us all to work together to achieve the #ZeroBy30 goal.
 
Rabies is deadly but preventable through the vaccination of dogs (and cats), so let’s play our part to keep our communities safe!
 
Vaccinate your dogs and cats by visiting your local veterinarian or state veterinarian.

It is critically important that every pet owner has their dogs and cats vaccinated to protect both humans and animals against rabies.

The first rabies vaccine is given at 12 weeks (three months) of age, followed by a booster vaccination between one and 12 months later. Thereafter, a booster is required every three years. In high-risk areas, annual vaccination is strongly recommended.

Let us unite with the rest of the world to eliminate rabies through One Health and zero deaths, in the run-up to World Rabies Day and beyond.

Rabies kills at least one person in the world every nine minutes. More than 59 000 people die from rabies each year and about 95% of these deaths occur in Africa and Asia, according to the World Organisation for Animal Health. Children are often the victims of rabies.

It is critically important that every pet owner has their dogs and cats vaccinated to protect both humans and animals against rabies.
