Signs of rabies in animals.
Rabies in animals
Animals with rabies may act differently than healthy animals. Wild animals may move slowly or act tame. Also, some wild animals, like foxes, raccoons, and skunks, that normally avoid porcupines, may receive a face full of quills if they become rabid and try to bite these prickly rodents. A pet that is usually friendly may snap at you and try to bite. There are two common types of rabies. One type is "furious" rabies. Animals with this type are hostile, may bite at objects, and have an increase in saliva. In the movies and in books, rabid animals foam at the mouth. In real life, rabid animals look like they have foam in their mouth because they have more saliva. The second and more common form is known as paralytic or "dumb" rabies. The dog pictured below has this type. An animal with "dumb" rabies is timid and shy. It often rejects food and has paralysis of the lower jaw and muscles. Signs of rabies in animals include:
  • general sickness problems swallowing an increase in drool or saliva wild animals that appear abnormally tame or sick animals that may bite at everything if excited difficulty moving or paralysis death
Animals in the early stage of rabies may not have any signs, although they can still infect you if they bite you. The incubation period is the time from the animal bite to when signs appear. In rabies, it is usually 1-3 months. But it can last as long as several years. Once the virus reaches the brain or spinal cord, signs of the disease appear.

What is rabies and how is it transmitted?
Rabies is a viral disease of the central nervous system that is almost always fatal once symptoms begin. The virus is found in the saliva of an animal with rabies and is usually transmitted by a bite or scratch. In Washington State, most cases of rabies in animals occur in bats. Most bats, however, do not carry rabies, and most of the bats tested for rabies in Washington are not infected. Because rabies is a life threatening disease, medical advice must be sought promptly if a bat comes into contact with humans or animals. Rabies may also be carried by other mammals. Wildlife most likely to carry rabies includes skunks, raccoon, foxes, and coyotes. Domestic animals such as cats, dogs, ferrets, horses, cattle, goats, and llamas can also get rabies, usually from the bite of a wild animal. A person bitten by a wild animal or domestic animal should seek medical advice to assess the risk of rabies and to get other needed treatment.

Overview Once you're infected, the virus spreads from your muscle to your peripheral nerves to your spinal cord and brain. From initial flu-like signs and symptoms, the illness progresses to convulsions, hallucinations, paralysis or breathing failure and almost always death once the infection is established. It's important to seek treatment immediately after exposure. Your risk of exposure to rabies in the United States is greater when you come into contact with a wild animal. Most rabies cases reported to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) each year occur in wild animals, including raccoons, skunks and foxes. Infected bats have transmitted most of the recent rabies cases in people in the United States. Domesticated animals such as cats, dogs and cattle account for only a small percentage of reported rabies cases. Most pets and domesticated animals receive vaccinations against rabies.

The facts about...
The epidemiology of rabies
Rabies is a virus infection to which all mammals, including man, are susceptible. It causes an acute and almost invariably fatal infection of the brain. During the illness there are disturbances of behaviour which in some affected species, such as dogs, cause them to bite other animals and man. As rabies virus may be present in saliva, bites and licks can transmit the virus. The incubation period in man is usually three to eight weeks, but may be as long as two years. Early symptoms may include numbness around the site of the bite, fever, headache, and general malaise. Later symptoms may include muscle spasms and hydrophobia. In many parts of the world (but not in the British Isles, some other parts of Western Europe and Australasia) rabies is found in terrestrial wildlife species. In Asia, Africa and Central and South America it also commonly infects domesticated animals such as dogs and cats, but rabies in domestic animals is very rare in Europe and North America. Bites from any of these animals can transmit the infection to other domestic and farm animals, and man. Bats can also transmit rabies and rabies-like viruses. In those parts of Western Europe where rabies is present in wildlife, it mainly infects foxes. Strenuous measures to control European fox rabies, for instance by vaccine left in baits, has reversed the movement of fox rabies towards the Channel ports, while strictly enforced quarantine regulations continue to prevent the introduction of other infected animals into Britain. In spite of its endemicity in foxes, rabies is rare in other animals in Western Europe, and extremely rare in man.

Disease Index NJ InTouch What You Should Know About. . . Rabies How to Protect Yourself from Rabies Have Your Pet Vaccinated Against Rabies. Pets can become infected with rabies through contact with rabid wild animals. Because of this, it is important that your dog or cat have up-to-date rabies vaccinations. Because a current trend in the United States indicates that there has been a higher incidence of rabies in cats than in dogs in recent years, rabies vaccination is especially important for cats. Cats left outdoors to roam have a greater chance of exposure to rabid animals, but even indoor cats should be vaccinated, as occasionally they may get out and/or wild animals, such as bats or raccoons, may get into houses through open doors, windows, or uncapped chimneys. You should get your pet vaccinated at a private veterinarian’s office or at a free state/municipal-sponsored rabies clinic. Do Not Feed or Handle Wild Animals. Especially avoid contact with all bats, raccoons, skunks, groundhogs, and foxes. It is illegal in New Jersey to keep these wild animals as pets. Take measures to prevent raccoons or bats from entering homes, barns, garages, and other buildings. Store all trash or pet food kept outdoors in animal-resistant containers. Avoid Contact With Strays or Pets Other Than Your Own.

Disease Index NJ InTouch Rabies Fact Sheet What is Rabies? Rabies is an ancient disease. It is well described in writings by Egyptians dating back to 2300 B.C. Rabies disease is caused by a virus that is present predominately in the saliva of rabid animals. The virus is transmitted by the bite of an infected animal. Rabies virus causes an inflammation of the brain, and is almost always fatal once symptoms develop. In wild and domestic animals, rabies virus may affect the part of the brain which regulates aggression, causing the animal to attack without fear or provocation. The rabies virus may also cause other changes in animal behavior. Wild animals that are normally out only at night may be seen during the day, approaching humans and domestic pets that they ordinarily would avoid. What is the history of rabies in New Jersey? In the earlier part of this century, New Jersey had a large problem with rabies in dogs. In 1939, the worst year for dog rabies, 675 dogs and four humans died of rabies. In 1942, a rabies program consisting of mass vaccination of dogs, and pick-up of stray animals was initiated. As a result of these efforts, New Jersey experienced its last case of canine rabies in 1956. In 1960, the first case of rabies in bats was detected in New Jersey. Presently, 2% to 5% of all New Jersey bats submitted to the state laboratory for testing are positive for rabies.

What is rabies and what causes it?
Rabies is an infectious disease that spreads from animals to humans. The rabies virus causes the disease by infecting nerves in animals and people. The rabies virus travels to the brain (through nerves inside the brain), the virus reproduces, and then it travels back through the nerves to most parts of the body. Eventually, the virus reaches the salivary glands where it is released into the saliva in the mouth. By this time, the disease has usually damaged the brain, sometimes producing violent behaviour. It eventually causes death. How long does it take for rabies to develop?

What is rabies?
Rabies is a viral disease affecting the central nervous system. It is transmitted from infected mammals to man and is invariably fatal once symptoms appear. Human rabies is rare in the United States, but still frequently occurs in many developing nations. The most recent case of human rabies in Wisconsin occurred in 2000; the latest case prior to that occurred in 1959.
Who gets rabies?
All mammals including man are susceptible to rabies. In Wisconsin, skunks and bats are the most likely animals to carry the rabies virus, although rabies also has occurred with some regularity in dogs, cats, foxes, raccoons and livestock.
How is rabies spread to humans?
Rabies is almost always contracted by exposure to a rabid animal. The exposure is nearly always through a bite, but rabies can also be transmitted if a rabid animal scratches a person or if its saliva comes into contact with broken skin. Because bites and scratches from bats may go unnoticed if a person is sleeping, is very young, or is mentally incapacitated, a physician should be contacted if a bat is found in the same room with a young child, or with a sleeping or mentally incapacitated adult.

Rabies Rabies is a preventable viral disease of mammals most often transmitted through the bite of a rabid animal. The vast majority of rabies cases reported to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) each year occur in wild animals like raccoons, skunks, bats, and foxes. Domestic animals account for less than 10% of the reported rabies cases, with cats, cattle, and dogs most often reported rabid. Rabies virus infects the central nervous system, causing encephalopathy and ultimately death. Early symptoms of rabies in humans are nonspecific, consisting of fever, headache, and general malaise. As the disease progresses, neurological symptoms appear and may include insomnia, anxiety, confusion, slight or partial paralysis, excitation, hallucinations, agitation, hypersalivation, difficulty swallowing, and hydrophobia (fear of water). Death usually occurs within days of the onset of symptoms. Public health importance of rabies Over the last 100 years, rabies in the United States has changed dramatically. More than 90% of all animal cases reported annually to CDC now occur in wildlife; before 1960 the majority were in domestic animals. The principal rabies hosts today are wild carnivores and bats.. The number of rabies-related human deaths in the United States has declined from more than 100 annually at the turn of the century to one or two per year in the1990's. Modern day prophylaxis has proven nearly 100% successful. In the United States, human fatalities associated with rabies occur in people who fail to seek medical assistance, usually because they were unaware of their exposure.
