|Vaccinate your dog for their health AND YOURS|
The dog died a horrible death of suffering from rabies. Vaccines for dogs are equally as important as they are for people. (The story is below)
There are uneducated people who think vaccines cause autism and that's totally false. Similarly, some pet parents Refuse to vaccinate their dogs. Well, if your dog is out among other dogs, or out of the house, then they risk contracting a disease AND they risk SPREADING it to all other dogs or dying a horrible, suffering death themselves. So, don't be foolish. Vaccinate your dogs, vaccinate your kids.
WHAT IS RABIES? The rabies virus travels to the brain by following the peripheral nerves. The disease can only be diagnosed after the start of symptoms.
DOES THE VACCINE WORK? YES.
CAN PEOPLE SURVIVE RABIES? NO, not unless they are vaccinated in 6 days.
|Rabies KILLS people and DOGS - unless you vaccinate your pets|
In unvaccinated humans, rabies is almost always fatal after neurological symptoms have developed. Vaccination after exposure, PEP, is highly successful in preventing the disease if administered promptly, in general within 6 days of infection. Begun with little or no delay, PEP is 100% effective against rabies.
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE A DOG TO DIE FROM RABIES? 10 DAYS
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE A PERSON TO DIE FROM RABIES?
In rare cases, it can vary from 10 days to 2 years. The incubation period is shorter in children and in people exposed to a large dose of the rabies virus. The dose of virus depends on the size, severity and location of an animal bite or scratch. In animals, the incubation period depends on the species of animal.
