Rabies can be 100% prevented.
This is if pet owners are responsible enough in feeding, taking care, and having their pets vaccinated.
This is what Aklan Provincial Coordinator for Rabies Control Program Dr. Ronald Lorenzo has said in line with the celebration of “Rabies Awareness Month” this March.
Dr. Lorenzo also said that animal bites should not be taken for granted because their rabies may lead to death, and if bitten, a prompt medical attention is a must.
Meanwhile, part of the “Rabies Awareness Month” celebration, the Office of the Provincial Veterinarian (OPVET) will conduct a free mass vaccination and free animal consultation in the whole province.
OPVET again reminds pet owners to be responsible with their pets to ensure safety against the rabies virus.
