OAVT Rabies Response Program

The OAVT Rabies Response Program is happy to announce the launch of our new rabies information page geared to the general public.

The Rabies Public Portal webpage has a direct link or can be accessed by visiting and clicking on the “Members of the Public” link. This new portal includes topics such as:

  • What is Rabies?
  • Rabies Prevention
  • Who to Call When?
  • What is the OAVT RRP?
  • Rabies isn't the only thing to worry about!

We are also happy to introduce a rabies vaccine clinic listing page with the goal to become a central location for the public seeking this information.

Currently there are no web properties offering this information in one spot. We welcome everyone to utilize this complimentary service by emailing us directly at with the subject line “Rabies Clinic Listing.” Please include the following event information in your message:

  • Date/Time
  • Location Name
  • Location Address (street number, street name, city, postal code)
  • Cost & method of payment accepted
  • Any additional details or posters in JPEG or PDF format

We encourage you to share this information with anyone that may benefit from knowing about it.

We look forward to working with you to ensure all members of the public have access to rabies vaccinations for their pets.

Rabies Vaccine-bait Identification

There is currently one type of vaccine bait, the Ultra-lite containing ONRAB®, that is used in Ontario for both fox strain and raccoon strain rabies control. Exposure to the bait is not harmful to people or pets; however, in the unlikely event that people or pets come in contact with the vaccine contained in the bait, contacting a doctor or veterinarian as a precaution is recommended.

Bait Ingredients

The bait formula coats the blister pack containing the vaccine. This formula consists of vegetable based fats, wax, icing sugar, vegetable oil, artificial marshmallow flavour and dark-green food grade fat-soluble dye.
