    Rabies - What You Need To Know
    Rabies is a disease caused by a virus found in the saliva of infected animals and is transmitted to pets and humans by bites, or possibly by contamination of an open cut. Treatment of an infected person as critical. Untreated, rabies causes a painful death. Most animals can be infected by the virus and can transmit the disease to man. Infected bats, raccoons, foxes, skunks, dogs or cats provide the greatest risk to humans. Rabies may also spread through exposure to infected domestic farm animals, groundhogs , weasels and other wild carnivores. Squirrels, rodents and rabbits are seldom infected.
    How Can You Prevent Rabies?
    • Have your pets vaccinated against rabies. Any pets which come in contact with wild animals are at risk. Many local health departments conduct public vaccination clinics for dogs and cats. Your veterinarian can also vaccinate your pet against rabies. D uring recent years, confirmed cases of rabies in cats have exceeded the reported cases in dogs in some parts of the United States making vaccination and booster shots critical to your health and that of your pets.
    • If your cat or dog has been bitten or attacked by a wild animal or has bites or scratches of unknown origin, call your local health department or animal control officer to report the incident.

    Oral Rabies Vaccination Programs (ORVP)
    The Zoonosis Control Division's Oral Rabies Vaccination Programs (ORVP) were created to eliminate rabies in coyotes ( Canis latrans ) in South Texas and rabies in gray foxes( Urocyon cinereoargenteus ) in West Central Texas. Both the South Texas Program and the West Central Texas Program utilize an oral rabies vaccine encased into a bait matrix. The vaccine/bait units are distributed aerially along transect lines. This ensures a consistent coverage of the target area. Each of the Programs has its own variation of bait matrix and bait/vaccine unit distribution density adapted for the individual target species. To learn more about the Texas ORVP look through our web site.

    5. Aspen Skunk Rabies Research, Inc
    Provides background, plus myths and facts about skunks.
    This was Erica's senior class picture. She had it taken with her beloved pet, Aspen. Aspen died in December of 1998 to prove that he did not have rabies. Had there been an approved rabies vaccine and quarantine period in this country for skunks, Aspen would still be alive and well and brightening the Mills home. You can read Aspen's story on our background page.
    When you ask the average American what their thoughts are on skunks you get descriptions like:
    "Smelly, rabies carrying, pests."
    This statement, with its misconceptions and misinformation , could not be further from the truth! In fact, wild skunks prefer to avoid contact with humans and other animals. They are very quiet, non-aggressive, solitary creatures, willing to live and let live. It is true that they can spray, if they feel that they are in danger. It is also true that if one gets sprayed by a skunk, they stay "fragrant" for quite some time. Skunks do not want to spray, however, and give plenty of warning before doing so. They only spray as a very last resort. Skunks can contract rabies, and so can any other unvaccinated mammal. They are no more prone to rabies than any other mammal.
    Wild skunks are an important part of our ecosystem. They could be called "Nature's Sanitation Engineers". They rid the environment of rats, mice, cockroaches, harmful garden pests (snails, grubs, all insects, gophers, moles), even poisonous animals (rattlesnakes, black widow spiders, scorpions), and "road kill" (which can cause accidents and spread disease).

    ILIAD-Tanzania Agro-terrorism ProMED Search Project ... The Role of Disease Surveillance in the Watch for Agro-terrorism or Economic Sabotage FAS addresses these issues through public education and international collaboration. The project's operational arm, ILIAD-Tanzania , is a pilot test of a surveillance system designed for remote rural areas in developing or reorganizing countries. Eschewing passive surveillance in favor of a pro-active, response-oriented, continuously operating network that begins at the village level, this system offers the promise of timely and accurate disease detection, diagnosis, prevention, and control. As a fully collaborative program between veterinary service workers, local farmers, wildlife conservation personnel and local governments, it provides a logistical framework for treatment, education and outbreak reporting. It is anticipated that the program will, over time, alleviate poverty in remote villages by increasing livestock and poultry production, control zoonotic diseases in human populations, and prevent disease epidemics in wild animal populations.

    Rabies Central nervous system Definition Return to top Rabies is a frequently fatal, acute viral infection which is transmitted to humans by infected animals (often dogs or bats) via a bite or by the exposure of broken skin to an infected animal's saliva. Causes, incidence, and risk factors Return to top Rabies is transmitted by infected saliva that enters the body through a bite wound or other open wound . The virus travels from the wound along nerve pathways to the brain, where it causes inflammation (irritation and swelling with presence of extra immune cells) that results in the symptoms of the disease. The incubation period ranges from 10 days to 7 years, with the average being 3 to 7 weeks. In the past, human cases in the U.S. usually resulted from a dog bite, but recently, more cases of human rabies have are linked to bats and there have not been any rabies cases caused by dog bites for a number of years. Worldwide, dogs still pose a significant risk for transmitting rabies, however. Bats, skunks, raccoons, foxes, and other animals can also be sources of rabies virus. There are an estimated 15,000 cases of rabies worldwide each year.
