Rabies - Protecting Your Family
and Your Pets Against Rabies

 

Rabies Clinic Information

 

You can protect your family and your pets from any rabies strain by observing the following rules:

  • Have your pets vaccinated according to instructions from your veterinarian.

  • Do not feed wild animals. You may be putting your family in danger.

  • Warn your children to stay away from wild or stray animals.

  • Take measures to discourage wild animals from taking up residence in your home or on your property. For example, cover up potential entrances, such as uncapped chimneys, loose shingles, and openings in attics, roofs and eaves. You may want to contact a professional for advice. (See Fact Sheet Discourage Raccoons From Moving In)

  • Do not attempt to trap wild animals that are causing damage to your property. Instead, contact a professional animal control officer to remove nuisance animals.

  • Do not trap and transport wild animals to a new location. It's illegal and you could be spreading the disease.

  • Do not keep wildlife as pets. It is against the law.

  • Report any sick, stray or strangely behaving animals to your local animal control office.
  • Do not touch dead animals. Bury or dispose of them carefully, and make sure pets cannot get at the carcasses.

  • If you find a wild or stray animal that appears to be sick, do not try to nurse the animal to health. Where an animal is in need of help, it requires specialized care to recover and return to the wild.

  • If your own pet is sick, contact your vet immediately.

  • If you think you, or any member of your family, has been in contact with a rabid animal, immediately contact your local Health Unit, doctor, or go to your local emergency health care center.
