Taking the Bite Out of Rabies

Dr. Bernadine Cruz  on Pet Life Radio

Every year more than 25,000 deaths worldwide are attributed to this virus.  Tragically, a very effective vaccine is available to prevent these fatalities but are not being disseminated to those in need.  You may think this international scourge is ebola.  Ebola was estimated to cause a demise of about 11,000 persons in 2015.  The disease I'm referring to is rabies, a preventable disease.  One that affects people and animals. With your assistance this disease can be eradicated. 

My guest is Dr. Richard Ford, an emeritus professor of medicine at North Carolina State University College of Veterinary Medicine, an expert on rabies and its worldwide impact.
