Protecting Your Cats and Your Family from Rabies

 

 Vaccinate your cats against rabies.  

 In the United States, rabid cats are more than twice as numerous as rabid dogs 

 Do not attract animals to your home by feeding them. Keep tight fitting lids on garbage cans.

 Keep garage and shed doors closed, and cap all chimneys so animals do not nest in these areas or enter your home.

 Avoid contact with stray or wild animals, even if they are babies

 Contact your physician if you awaken in a bedroom with a bat, or if a bat is discovered in a room with a previously unattended young child.

 Some wild animals have become very accustomed to living near people. Always be cautious because you cannot tell for sure if an animal has rabies just by looking at it.

Do Your Part to Reduce Rabies Risk, Vaccinate! 

 

Each year 55,000 people die worldwide from Rabies. The fatal, zoonotic (can be transferred from animals to humans) disease attacks the nervous system of mammals.

 

Thankfully, in the U.S., responsible animal owners have helped protect animal and human life by having their pets vaccinated against the disease, reducing the number of human rabies cases to only three per year.

 

?This low number is partially a result of the availability of effective preventive treatment after a person sustains a potential exposure,? explains Dr. James Kazmierczak, State Public Health Veterinarian for the Wisconsin Division of Public Health. ?It is estimated that about 40,000 persons receive the preventive rabies shots each year in this country.?  

 

Although the number of human rabies cases has decreased over the past several decades because of stray animal control ordinances and better rabies vaccination coverage for pets, it is still a disease of significant public health concern.

 

?Rabies is a disease that is invariably fatal, and it remains a public health risk because the rabies virus is maintained in wildlife reservoirs such as bats and skunks,? Dr. Kazmierczak explains.

Grand Re-Opening 2010

 

We had our Grand Opening July 10th, 2010.  We welcomed more than 300 people into our new clinic and gave them a tour.  We had adoptable kittens from 3 shelters, sold cat towers, brat fry to benefit a local shelter and had a huge bounce house.  It was very hot that day, but we had a great time!  Thank You to all the people for coming and making this a success!!
