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:
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:
When to Vaccinate:
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.
For information on RABIES VACCINATION’s contact the local RCMP Detachment at phone: 867-898-0123 or inquire with the local Health Centre for Dog/ puppies Vaccines phone: 867-898-9968… For information on Pet products/ supplies visit link – Pet Products or Pet Supplies
