Southside Pet Hospital

Rabies vaccine baiting is underway in Ontario!

Each summer and fall our rabies staff distribute rabies vaccine baits targeting raccoons, skunks, and foxes by air in rural areas and green spaces and by ground crews in urban areas. The bait is a small package filled with a vaccine that when eaten is absorbed through the lining of the animal's mouth. Within a few weeks of eating the bait, the animal becomes vaccinated. If you find a bait packet in an area where it shouldn't be (such as your yard):
• Don't open it
• Place a plastic bag over your hand to keep your scent off the bait
• Move it to an area where wildlife may find it (such as a forested area)

Pet owners should keep in mind that the vaccine has been tested and is safe if consumed by domestic animals. If your pet has eaten a bait and you are concerned, contact your vet.
