2013 World Rabies Day Event

2013 World Rabies Day Event

Sacramento, CA.   What do a 3-month-old calf pastured next door to an ice cream parlor in Rhode Island, a kitten born to a barn cat in Colorado, and Bluetick/Walker Coonhound mix puppies for sale in Oklahoma have in common?  This summer, all of these animals exposed numerous people to rabies.  In each case, post-exposure treatment was necessary for every person who had contact with the rabid animals.  The rabid animals either died or were euthanized.  This all could have been prevented if the animals had been protected by rabies vaccination.

Rabies in people and their pets is rare here in the U.S.A., primarily because of the pet licensing and rabies vaccination requirements in most counties.  Nevertheless, the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reports approximately 6,000 cases of rabies in animals within the U.S.A.

Dog lovers defend pit bulls as breed

SACRAMENTO, CA - A pit bull attack that left a woman in Stockton dead Thursday has re-ignited a debate about the breed: Is their reputation for violence deserved?

STORY: Woman killed in apparent pit bull attack in Stockton ID'd

Owners of American Staffordshire Terriers competing at Cal Expo's Sacramento Kennel Club Dog Show will tell you their dogs are often mistaken by the public for pit bulls, so they're intimately aware of the public scorn for pit bulls.

That's especially true for Richard Chatigny. After years of raising Amstaffs and other dogs, he and his wife adopted a pit bull named Sadie.

"She's the calmest. She's the most obedient. She's the most accepting of anybody and everybody. She's a great ambassador," Chatigny said of Sadie.
