(hydrophobia) What is rabies? Rabies is a viral disease affecting the central nervous system (brain and spinal cord). It is transmitted from infected mammals to man and is almost always fatal once symptoms appear. Fortunately, only a few human cases are reported each year in the United States. Who gets rabies? All warm blooded mammals including man can get rabies. Among wild animals, rabies is most often seen in raccoons, bats, skunks and foxes. How do people get rabies? People can get rabies if they are exposed to the saliva or nervous tissue of a rabid animal through a bite or scratch. Although rare, exposure can also occur if infected saliva or nervous tissue gets into a fresh wound (one that has bled within 24 hours) or mucous membrane (eyes, nose, mouth). There have also been a few cases of person to person transmission in corneal transplant recipients when it was not known that donors were infected with rabies. Can people be exposed to rabies and not know it?

[_private/navbar.htm] Rabies and Your Pet Rabies is a potentially fatal virus that can be spread between animals and to humans. Most mammals can spread the disease but it is most often spread by raccoons, foxes, and skunks. Rabies is most commonly spread by bites. Because of the seriousness of this disease, it is necessary by law to have your pet vaccinated against the disease. Even if your pet never goes outdoors, it is very wise to be sure you and your pet are protected from rabies. What can you do to protect your pet? It is quite simple. Get your pet vaccinated regularly. Your veterinarian will advise you when the shots are necessary. The first rabies vaccine is given during your pet's first year of life. A booster follows one year later, and then every 3 years.

Rabies Information - County Contacts
If you think you or your pet may have been exposed to rabies or have questions about the disease, your county health agency can assist. Numbers are listed below. If you have been bitten, scratched or have had contact with the saliva of an animal that you believe is rabid, wash the wound immediately and call your doctor. If your doctor recommends treatment, call your county health agency immediately to determine where you should receive treatment. If there is any chance of exposure to a bat through an inapparent bite, for example, a bat had direct contact with someone, or was in a room with a sleeping individual, unattended child, or with someone with mental impairment, contact your county health agency immediately to discuss the situation. Each county is required by the state to authorize all treatment of individuals who have been exposed to the rabies virus. With this prior authorization, it is likely that you will not have to pay for the cost of treatment. Without prior authorization, you may be responsible for treatment expenses. County health agencies are also responsible for managing animal bites and exposure of domestic animals to known or suspect rabid animals.

Gary Baumbach, M.D., Department of Pathology, University of Iowa College of Medicine
Peer Review Status: Internally Peer Reviewed Rabies, an RNA virus, is most commonly transmitted by animal bites. The reservoir for the rabies virus in the U.S. encompasses a number of different animals, but is found predominantly in the skunk. Other hosts include fox, cows, and dogs. In addition, bats apparently transmit rabies without themselves being infected. Another important point is that, although small laboratory rodents can be infected with rabies experimentally, the disease in man rarely, if ever, occurs following a mouse or guinea pig bite. Microscopically, there are three characteristic findings in rabies encephalitis which will be demonstrated on the next four slides. The first characteristic, shown here , is that found in all cases of encephalitis, namely lymphocytic infiltrates concentrated in the meninges and around parenchymal vessels. The second characteristic is the typical glial nodule , another nonspecific finding seen in most types of encephalitis. The third, and virtually diagnostic, characteristic is the Negri body, which is an eosinophilic, cytoplasmic inclusion with a basophilic core. A Negri body is located just to the right of the neuronal nucleus in this photomicrograph.

Under Indiana law, all dogs, cats and ferrets older than 3 months of age must be vaccinated against the rabies virus. State law allows the use of 1-year and 3-year vaccines according to approved label directions. (NOTE: Some localities throughout the state may have stricter local laws.) The vaccine must be administered by a licensed and accredited veterinarian only.
Animals entering Indiana must have received a vaccination within the previous 12 months, regardless of vaccine type.

Rabies is an acute viral disease that can be transmitted to humans by contact with the saliva of an infected animal. Human clinical rabies has a variable incubation period followed by a neurological illness that can lead to death. HOW IS RABIES TRANSMITTED?
  • By the bite of an infected animal. (It should be noted that petting a rabid animal or contact with its blood, urine, or feces is not an exposure and does not require preventive measures.) By a scratch, abrasion, mucous membranes or open wound coming in contact with infectious material (i.e., saliva or neural tissue of a rabid animal.) By the airborne route. (There are a few documented cases of rabies being contracted in caves where bats reside and in laboratories that work with the virus.) By human-to-human contact (e.g., a corneal transplant from an unknown infected individual).
    In the U.S., (except Hawaii, which is rabies-free) consider the following as suspect: dogs, cats, ferrets, skunks, raccoons, foxes, most other carnivores and bats. Occasionally livestock and rodents such as woodchucks and beavers may be suspect; consult with local public health officials. Bites of squirrels, hamsters, guinea pigs, gerbils, chipmunks, rats and mice almost never require anti-rabies post-exposure treatment. RABIES VACCINE
    There are three vaccines available to protect individuals against rabies, all considered equally safe and effective. The difference is in the virus strains and cell cultures used to prepare them.

    Thai dogs get passports to beat rabies
    Stray dogs are the prime cause of rabies infections in Thailand By Staff and wire reports BANGKOK, Thailand Thailand plans to issue passports to dog owners who want to take their dogs to rabies-free zones in a bid to ensure the safety of tourists. So far only two islands in Thailand are declared rabies-free zones Koh Samui and Koh Samet. Koh Samui was chosen because it had not had a single report of rabies since 1985. All dogs are vaccinated against the rabies virus in the resort island.
    Valid for five years
    Passports would be valid for five years and include information on rabies vaccinations, record of ownership and a traveling record, a local Bangkok newspaper reported. Fifty people died of rabies in Thailand last year. This year 12 people have already died. Many of rabies victims get the disease from dog bites, especially from stray dogs. In Thailand, a predominantly Buddhist country, the killing of homeless dogs is generally opposed.

The British Isles have been free of classical rabies for many decades, but because of the existence of the disease elsewhere there is concern about rabies being reintroduced by imported animals. All rabies susceptible animals entering the UK are required to spend six months in quarantine, unless arriving under and complying with all the conditions of the Pet Travel Scheme (PETS). Further information on the level of rabies in other countries around the world is available on the World Health Organisation website . Information on rabies in Europe can be found on the Rabies Bulletin Europe website EC Regulation 998/2003 on the non-commercial movement of pet animals applied from 3 July 2004.

    Rabies is a disease, caused by a virus, that can infect all mammals, including humans. It is transmitted through contact with the saliva or nervous tissue of an infectious animalusually through a bite. If an exposed person or animal is not treated quickly, the virus may infect the person or animal and may result in death. Rabies is almost always fatal to animals and people once signs of disease appear. However, immediate treatment by a doctor after exposure, possibly including a post-exposure rabies vaccination, will prevent development of the disease. Rabies can infect any mammal. In North Carolina it is most common in raccoons, skunks, and foxes, and has also been found in dogs, cats, horses, cattle, bats, and other animals. In recent years, there has been a significant increase in the number of animals found to have rabies in North Carolina. Because it can be fatal, rabies should be considered extremely dangerous. Therefore, it is important to prevent exposure to the rabies virus whenever possible. The best way to avoid rabies is to stay away from animals that appear sick or act oddly, and avoid contact with strange animals and wildlife. Since people's pets may be exposed to rabies when they come in contact with other animals, pets should be vaccinated by a veterinarian against the disease. To help protect people against rabies, vaccination of dogs and cats is required by law in North Carolina.

    The following actions should be taken if a person is bitten or otherwise possibly exposed to a rabid animal:
    • Domestic animals : Identify and, if possible, confine the biting animal. Dogs, cats, and ferrets may be quarantined for ten days (if healthy and depending on other circumstances), or they may be euthanized and tested for rabies. Other domestic animals are handled on a case-by-case basis. Wild animals : Identify and, if possible, confine the biting animal for rabies testing. No quarantine period is recognized for wild animals.
