Rabies is a life-threatening neurologic disease that has the potential to spread from horses to humans. Once horses show clinical signs of rabies, death can occur within days. The best protection you can offer your horse is prevention.
Join TheHorse.com and Amanda House, DVM, Dipl. ACVIM, to learn how to protect your horse and yourself from rabies by attending the free Webinar: "Equine Rabies: What Every Horse Owner Should Know" on Thursday, Sept. 24, at 8 p.m. EDT.
During her presentation, Dr. House will cover:

Once you sign up for this Webinar, you will be able to ask questions live during the video presentation from 8-9 p.m. on Sept. 24. You can also submit your questions via e-mail prior to the Webinar to be answered during the live event. We will provide a transcript of the questions and answers and a replay of the presentation a few days after the live event.
