The AVMA and the Global Alliance for Rabies Control have produced an educational DVD to promote rabies prevention.

“Rabies: Simple Steps Save Lives” is geared toward children and focuses on how to prevent exposure to the rabies virus as well as the spread of the disease. Veterinarians can use the resource in the clinic or during their next visit to a local school.

The DVD is in English with subtitles in Spanish, French, and mainland Chinese, and in English for the hearing impaired. It is available for purchase by visiting www.avma.org, clicking on the “Store” link at the top of the page, then clicking on “Classroom Materials.” The price is $5 for members and $10 for nonmembers.

The video also is available via the AVMA’s YouTube channel at www.youtube.com/AmerVetMedAssn.
