Excerpts:

Vaccinating your pets such as cats and dogs is the best way to prevent rabies in people. It is cost-effective and stops the spread, but it also helps in protecting you and your community,” he said at a rabies symposium hosted by Boehringer Ingelheim at the Federation of Asian Veterinary Associations Congress 2023.

Dog vaccination is mandatory under Section 40 of the Veterinary Public Health Ordinance 1999, and any owner or person in charge of a dog who fails to comply could be fined up to RM1,000.
