**********The Alberta Veterinary Medical Association has issued this notice: Two bats test positive for Rabies during first week of September 2015. A bat found in the city of Calgary and a bat in Cochrane have tested positive for rabies. These are the second and third confirmed cases of rabies in bats in Alberta for 2015. The Silver Haired Bats were submitted for rabies testing and confirmed positive. The rabies virus can infect people and their pets. Even though the prevalence of rabies is low in Alberta, it is a good reminder for veterinarians to educate all pet owners that the bats present in Alberta can be infected with the rabies virus and vaccination of their pets is a good preventative measure. Pet owners can also take measures to reduce or avoid contact between pets and bats. If you have any questions or concerns or are unsure of your pet’s vaccine status, please call us.**********
