Owners Urged to Keep Pets’ Rabies Shots Up To Date

As rabies shows no signs of abating in Taiwan, Taipei City Animal Protection Office (APO) urges pet owners to ensure their furkids’ immunizations against the infectious disease are updated.
APO pointed out that currently Taipei has 173 veterinary institutes (accounting for over 70 percent of the total) requested by the agency to offer rabies inoculation service. After having their domesticated animals vaccinated, pet owners will receive a certificate and pet tag issued by the city government as proof of rabies vaccination.

APO reminds pet owners to check whether the veterinary institute is among the contracted facilities to provide rabies immunization service before having their cats or dogs vaccinated.
A fine of NT$30,000 to NT$150,000 shall be imposed on pet owners/keepers for failing to carry out prevention measures against the disease in accordance with Statute for Prevention and Control of Infectious Animal Disease.
