World Rabies Day
Rabies is a fatal virus that can infect any mammal. It is usually transmitted via a bite from an infected animal. The virus makes animals more aggressive, and therefore more likely to bite.
95% of human rabies cases are in Asia and Africa, and 99% are caused by dog bites. 40% of all human deaths are in children under 15 years of age. The team at Mission Rabies have the aim of getting the human death rate from rabies down to ZERO by running vaccination campaigns in areas of Africa and Asia.
The UK is a rabies-free country, so routine vaccination is not needed here. However, if you travel abroad with your dog, they will need an up-to-date rabies vaccination, and possibly a blood test to check they have responded appropriately.

We will donate 5% of the rabies vaccination fee to Mission Rabies for all rabies vaccinations in September and October
With the Brexit transition period ending on the 31st December, at the moment, any animal travelling to the EU after this point will need to have had a rabies blood test at least 3 months before travelling, and at least 30 days after their rabies vaccination. It will therefore take at least 4 months before travelling to prepare your pet (dog, cat or ferret).
Get your pet ready to travel with a rabies vaccine in September and October and help to eliminate the disease causing deaths worldwide. We will donate 5% of the rabies vaccination fee to Mission Rabies.
