Rabies Vaccine Bait To Be Dropped In Maine, What About My Pets?
According to Maine Public, after numerous attacks by rabid wildlife, the State Department of Agriculture, Conservation and Forestry will team with the Maine Center for Disease Control and Prevention to drop 351,000 vaccine pellets on parts of Maine.
My dog will eat anything, she's not going to just pass up delicious smelling fishmeal flavored rabies bait! But is it safe for pets to eat? According to the Maine Center for Disease Control, it is. If your dog chows down on the vaccine pellets they won't suffer long term effects but they might get an upset tummy.
