rabies prevention tips

Rabies Prevention Tips: What You Can Do To Lower Risk of Rabies Infection

Rabies Prevention Tips: What You Can Do To Lower Risk of Rabies Infection

It is important to learn Rabies Prevention Tips. Rabies can be fatal to anyone infected with this virus.

During summer, it is common in the Philippines to conduct Rabies Awareness. Kids have more time to play outside their homes. That means more interaction with pets, whether their own or their neighbor’s, even strays.

Here are essential tips to protect you and your family from Rabies:

> Make sure that your dog or cat is up to date with the vaccinations. Rabies vaccination is given when your pet is already three months old. Your pet will need another Rabies shot in one year then every three years for the rest of your pet’s life.

> Keep a record of your pet’s vaccination in a safe and accessible location. This is to ensure that you have proper documentation of your pet’s vaccination. You will need this when your pet bites a person or another animal.

> Your pets should stay inside your home premises. Your pets should be supervised when outside. This is a good practice in keeping your pets from contacting wild animals or strays.

> You should call your local authorities to report stray dogs and cats in the neighborhood.

> In any case of bites: your pet is bitten by another pet, stray or a wild animal; your pet bites a person (you included), another pet or wild animal – consult your veterinarian and you doctor immediately.

> If you are travelling to another country, ask your doctor about the rabies vaccine. Avoid direct contact with any animals.

With these Rabies Prevention Tips, you will be able to live without fear with your pets.

Happy Client: Lala Gozar

The wall of credentials and accreditations gave me so much confidence to have my Havanese spayed in this hospital.

Everyone was very nice and accommodating. Our doctor looked very relaxed but reassuring.

My dog came out of surgery like nothing happened.

cat stare

Why Does Your Cat Stare At You?

Why Does Your Cat Stare At You?

Has it crossed your mind why does your cat stare at you? If you are a cat over, you have experienced this cat behavior more than once.

This is one of the cat behaviors that can unsettle your nerves. Their unblinking stare just makes you uneasy. Maybe your cat is thinking of something mischievous up their unreadable brains. Or something else. As if they are ready to pounce on you.

But experts say fear not. Only humans are the ones thinking of such plots.

Cats don’t blink as often as humans do. This is good for their hunting skills.

Other than this, when you catch your cat staring at you, this just means that your cat is giving you a look of love. You as the main provider of cat food, your cat is just checking you out trying to read you. Your body language will tell your cat if you are calm or not.

So the next time your cat stares at you, you do not have to think that that look is creepy. And yes, it is okay to stare back. It affirms their bond to you.
