Make a Difference
Support research of The Rabies Challenge Fund.
Never before have ordinary owners had the opportunity to make such a difference in the health of all dogs. Iím talking about the canine rabies vaccine challenge study that just got underway at the University of Wisconsin School of Veterinary Medicine in Madison. Dr. Ronald Schultz, a leading authority on veterinary vaccines and chair of the Department of Pathobiological Sciences there, has begun concurrent five- and seven-year challenge studies to determine the long-term duration of immunity of the canine rabies vaccine, with the goal of extending the state-mandated interval for boosters. These will be the first long-term challenge studies on the vaccine to be published in the U.S.
