Many areas have laws that require dogs and cats (and sometime ferrets) to be vaccinated against rabies. These laws help protect both pets and people from this deadly disease. RAbies vaccinations are not required by law in British Columbia, but are required in most other provinces. Your pet must be vaccinated 30 days in advance of entering into the USA.
Because of rabies laws, control and prevention programs, and pet owners’ cooperation, domesticated pets in North America rarely become infected with this disease. By keeping your pet up-to-date on his or her rabies vaccination, not only are you protecting your pet, but you’re also helping to prevent exposure to human family membersas well!
