Boehringer Ingelheim Animal Health USA Inc. is proud to offer government agencies an oral rabies vaccine for use in wildlife called RABORAL V-RG®. It can be used in rabies control programs to protect your community against rabies in raccoons and coyotes.
There are many examples of successful wildlife rabies elimination programs listed in the Resources on this website. In the United States, wildlife rabies programs have prevented the westward spread of the raccoon rabies variant beyond the Appalachian Mountains, eliminated the gray-fox variant from Texas, and nationally eliminated the canine variant of rabies.
Today in the United States, more than five million doses of RABORAL V-RG are distributed each year into wildlife habitat.1 Vaccine-filled baits are distributed by airplane, helicopter or by hand to reach the target species. Aerial distribution is an efficient way to deliver bait units into remote areas not accessible by vehicles or hand-baiting efforts. Both fixed-wing aircraft and helicopters follow computer-generated flight lines and are guided by global positioning systems (GPS). The baits are released by a timing mechanism to ensure even distribution over the treatment zones.
