Did you know that rabies occurs in every South African province? The three highest-risk provinces for dog rabies include KwaZulu-Natal, Eastern Cape and Limpopo.

It is crucial 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 advised!

Enquire with your local state veterinarian, animal health technician, private veterinarian, or welfare organisation.

Animals infected with rabies show changes in behaviour and develop neurological symptoms, which may include the following signs: Excessive salivation, paralysis, inability to swallow, continuous vocalisation, convulsions, aggressiveness, or non-responsive behaviour. Report any suspected rabid animals immediately to your state or private veterinarian, animal health technician or the police.

Rabies is a deadly disease. It can be transmitted to people by an infected animal’s bite, scratch, or lick.

If a person is bitten, scratched, or licked by an animal suspected to have rabies (an animal that is unvaccinated, showing odd behaviour or neurological symptoms), the person needs to wash the wound thoroughly with soap and running water and seek medical attention immediately.

Post-exposure prophylaxis treatment will involve a series of rabies vaccinations and immunoglobulin being injected into the wound (If the skin has been broken).

Rabies affects the brain and is 99.9% fatal once a person or animal shows clinical signs.
