The American Veterinary Medical Association launched World Rabies Day in 2007 as a way to raise awareness of the impact this disease has on both humans and animals. In 2012, more than 6,000 animals contracted rabies, many of them domestic pets. Approximately 55,000 people from around the world die because of rabies every year, although all but a handful are from underdeveloped countries. World Rabies Day this year takes place on September 28, and Minnesota Veterinary Hospital is doing our part to educate our clients about this disease.
