Will The World Ever be Rid of Rabies?

Rabies kills. And the deaths are preventable. 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."
