Post-exposure treatment of humans is provided when an exposure occurs. Confinement of domesticated cats, dogs, ferrets, as well as livestock is conducted as needed to reduce the spread of rabies. The program also includes continued support of the expanded oral rabies vaccine bait drop program in the St. Lawrence Region in conjunction with USDA.
