Rabies Information – ALL Dogs should be vaccinated for Rabies:

Rabies is a dangerous disease that is carried by foxes, wolves, and wolverines. It can be transmitted to dogs and humans and is untreatable and fatal in humans.

Rabies is usually transmitted by saliva in a bite, but a dog or person does not have to be bitten to get rabies. Saliva on a person’s hands can transfer the disease through the eyes, nose, mouth, or small cuts, so even licking by an animal that has rabies is dangerous. Not every bite results in rabies, but if a person develops the disease, it is fatal.

Avoid any Fox seen in Town – Rabies affects the Behaviour of Animals in Three Ways:

  • An animal may appear aggressive, attacking without warning.
  • An animal may appear very tame and quiet.
  • An animal may appear playful.

Pre-Cautions regarding Rabies:

  • Teach your children to avoid foxes at all times; and not to play with them. Any fox seen in town should be considered rabid.
  • Children should be taught to tell parents or an adult if they are bitten or licked by a fox; (If a child is licked by a fox, quickly wash hands, arms, face, and neck with soap).
  • Children should not approach a dog they do not know, and should NEVER tease a chained dog.
  • If your child is bitten by a dog or a fox, take him or her to the Health Centre and tell the nurse what has happened. Your child may need shots to prevent rabies from developing. This should be done as soon as you find out about the bite.

For Trappers:

Ask the Conservation Officer if they are seeing cases of rabies, before beginning the trapping season. If there is a rabies outbreak, take special care when handling trapped animals, even when they are dead.

If there is a bite:

  • If your dog is bitten by a fox or an unvaccinated dog, your dog must be quarantined for three to six months and watched for any unusual behaviour.
  • If your dog has been vaccinated and is bitten by a fox, take it to the By-Law Officer as soon as possible and have it revaccinated.
  • If your dog has been vaccinated, vaccinating after a bite will not help. An unvaccinated dog that is bitten MUST be quarantined for at least 6 months in a pen where it cannot get to people.

RABIES IS PREVENTABLE – JUST VACCINATE YOUR DOG!

When to Vaccinate:

  • Puppies should be vaccinated no earlier than 12 weeks, but during the first 6 months if possible.
  • They should be vaccinated again at one year, and every two years after that.
  • If there is an active rabies outbreak, vaccinate every year. This is especially important for dogs tied up at the edges of town, as they can easily come into contact with foxes.

Other Dog Diseases:

If possible, all dogs should also be vaccinated for distemper and parvovirus, which are severe diseases of dogs, but not transmissible to people. If you want to protect your dog against these diseases, call Page Burt or John Hickes at Phone: (867) 645-2650 in Rankin Inlet for information regarding vaccines.

Parvovirus is a diarrhea disease that can kill a puppy in only a couple days and distemper is a respiratory disease that can spread to the brain and affect a dog’s balance and muscular control. BOTH ARE PREVENTABLE BY VACCINATION. Full protection requires two shots of a combined vaccine. Puppies should be vaccinated at 6 weeks and between 13 weeks of age. After that, the dog should be vaccinated annually for parvo and distemper.

All puppies are likely infected with roundworms and should be de-wormed at about 6 to 13 weeks. If you feed raw fish to your dog, it likely will become infected by tapeworms and will need de-worming twice a year. Page Burt and John Hickes can provide information on this as well.
