You’ve gone too far
Do you know what happens when an animal is SUSPECTED to have rabies? If they don't pass the quarantine (most don't) they are euthanized and their head is chopped off, sent to a lab, and their brain matter is tested. That's the only way to definitely diagnose. But, sure, worry about autistic dogs instead.
@Animalium, rabies can transfer to humans fairly easily, so i can see the precaution. Rabies is usually uncurable.
@Implicit88, you can't cure it in animals. People are giving the pets a death sentence by not vaccinating, just like they are their children. Distemper is scary too. Not all of them are deadly though. I have two cats with herpesvirus. It flares whenever they get stressed and it's sad to see, but it won't kill them. Just make them miserable.
I mean they are animals what do you people think the wild ones do? Just die within a year
@Devious Olive , negative ghost rider lol
@tmo0792, get rabies
@Goldeneye, we gotta stop treating animals like humans. There are plenty of humans that need our help. I'm all for helping animals but not before a human
@tmo0792, people usually pay out of their own pocket to vaccinate their dogs, i think in my area its required. Dogs, much like people, need community immunity. Its not like back in the wild where there was small packs. Dogs interact with one another from different areas and disease can easily spread. Not to mention a lot of the vaccines are for simple things like rabies (which the dog can get from another wild animal)
@tmo0792, meh there are too many people anyway
@Reluctantkitty , keep eating your meat and driving your cars killing 1000s of small creatures and insects then how is one animal different than any other
@Implicit88, Another aspect of vaccinate your pets is zoonosis, diseases that spreads between animals and humans. With that in mind I think it’s very important for human health to have pets fully vaccinated.
@tmo0792, let me kill a bunch of plants by eating them instead cause their life holds less value than my own.
@Implicit88, I am for eating animals? And vegetables so I'm not sure what you're trying to say here and yes their life holds no value they are plants they dont have a life there job is to give us food and animals as well
@tmo0792, Not be in constant contact with humans
@tmo0792, I get what you’re saying and but when it comes to dogs and you aren’t vaccinating you drastically increase the chance of rabies which hurts the local dog population and human population or anything else and the last thing we want are increased numbers of rabid animals running in populated areas almost causing a diet zombie apocalypse
I hate people so much.......
