Vaccinations are intended to protect our patients from infectious diseases. Some of these diseases are zoonotic (communicable to humans) while other diseases are highly communicable between pets or between wildlife and pets. Appropriate vaccinations in our pet population can lead to a reduction in the incidence of disease as well as an improvement in human health. The number of cases of human rabies is low in this country due to a successful rabies vaccination program in our companion animals. Sadly this is not the case in many developing nations. Rabies is still a serious human health risk. The Jockey Hollow Veterinary Practice uses the Continuum line of vaccines from Intervet to help developing nations overcome this fatal and preventable disease.
