The efficacy in inactivated rabies vaccine for the protection of African wild dogs (Lycaon pictus) against viral challenge. A review



The efficacy in inactivated rabies vaccine for the protection of African wild dogs (Lycaon pictus) against viral challenge. A review



Erkrankungen der Zootiere 40: 233-242



Published information suggests that a standard dose of inactivated rabies vaccine manufactured for domestic dogs is unlikely to induce a VNA titre level likely to provide protection against viral challenge. Vaccinated free-ranging African wild dogs have died following rabies challenge. The survivorship of vaccinated free-ranging individuals was significantly less than that of anaesthetised individuals in the same population. The most extensively vaccinated study populations of African wild dogs are extinct.
