World Rabies Day is on 28 September and Birnam Veterinary Clinic (in partnership with our suppliers) is offering free Rabies vaccinations on Wednesday 20 September and Thursday 21 September. This offer is valid for all animals which have not been vaccinated against Rabies in the past year.
By law all animals have to be vaccinated against Rabies at least every three years. Rabies is now an endemic disease to Johannesburg as a result of several outbreaks in recent years. Rabies is 100% lethal to humans who contract the disease from a rabid animal, so we highly recommend that your pet be vaccinated on a yearly basis, even if they are confined to a strongly enclosed property.
To take up this offer, please phone the practice for an appointment on 011 887 8158/9.
