Will The World Ever be Rid of Rabies?

As World Rabies Day approaches on September 28, the American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA) is reminding everyone – especially animal owners – about the importance of vaccinating their animals for rabies and avoiding exposure to the usually-fatal viral disease.

Rabies, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), "has the highest case fatality ratio of any infectious disease if prompt intervention is not initiated."
