    Virginia Department of Health - Office of Epidemiology - Rabies Control and Prevention
    • Rabies is a deadly disease caused by a virus that attacks the nervous system. It kills almost any mammal or human that gets sick from it. The rabies virus is mainly in the saliva and brain of rabid animals. It can be transmitted through a bite or by getting saliva or brain tissue in a wound or in the eye or mouth. Only mammals get rabies; birds, fish, reptiles, and amphibians do not. Skunks, bats, foxes, raccoons, dogs, cats, and some farm animals are most likely to get rabies. Rabbits, squirrels, rats and mice, and pets like gerbils and hamsters seldom get it. Rabies can be prevented in cats, dogs, ferrets, and some livestock with a rabies vaccination. For most wild and exotic animals, there are no rabies vaccines available that have been shown to protect them. At present, there is an oral wildlife rabies vaccine available only to State or Federal Rabies Control Programs. The use of an oral rabies vaccine may decrease the number of rabid animals, but will not eliminate the need for vaccination of pets or other domestic animals.

    • Because of improved rabies vaccination programs for pets and better treatment for people who are bitten, rabies cases among humans in this country are rare. The best way to prevent the spread of rabies to humans is by keeping pets properly vaccinated.

    Update T he Wolf Dog Coalition submitted all wolf and wolf dog vaccination records we had acquired to the USDA in November of 1998. We were informed in January of 1999 that the USDA considered the data significant and sufficient to allow them to make a decision about vaccine approval for wolves and wolf dog crosses. In February, after a thorough analysis, USDA made the determination that all vaccines currently approved for dogs should also be approved for wolves and wolf dog crosses. The mechanism by which wolves and wolf dogs would gain vaccine approval was with an amendment to Title 9 Code of Federal Regulations. The amendment, in essence, declared that all vaccines are approved for any member of the species Canis lupus.

    Animal bites are always unpleasant experiences. Unfortunately, animal bites do occur; to insure the health of the victim, it is essential that the proper precautions be followed. One possible health problem associated with an animal bite is rabies, an acute encephalitis (infection of the brain). Bites inflicted by domestic animals with no history of a rabies vaccination or by a wild animal require immediate attention. Open wounds, scratches, or mucous membranes exposed to saliva or brain material of an infected animal are also possible modes of transmission. Disease Rabies is an acute encephalitis (infection of the brain) caused by a virus believed to be infectious for most mammals. Transmission of the virus is usually through a bite. Transmission also can occur by exposure of a scratch, abrasion, open wound, or mucous membrane to the saliva or brain material of a rabid animal. The virus has an affinity for the central nervous system tissue and travels along the peripheral nerves to the brain. Once the virus is established in the brain the disease is seldom reversible and usually fatal. The average incubation period varies from 20-90 days after exposure and depends on the following circumstances:

    Introduction: Rabies
    Rabies: Virus usually caught from an animal bite. Rabies: Rabies is an acute and deadly viral infection of the central nervous system. It is one of the most terrifying diseases known to man. Although rabies in humans is rare in the United States, as many as 18,000 Americans get rabies shots each year because they have been in contact with animals that may be rabid (rabies-infected). In 1998 according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), only one person died of rabies in this country. Researching symptoms of Rabies: Further information about the symptoms of Rabies is available including a list of symptoms of Rabies , or alternatively return to research other symptoms in the symptom center Treatments for Rabies: Various information is available about treatments available for Rabies prevention of Rabies , or research treatments for other diseases.

    Information on rabies, diagnosis, symptoms, treatment issues, and patient information.
    Rabies (from a Latin word meaning rage), is a viral disease that causes acute encephalitis in animals and people. It can affect most species of warm-blooded animal, but is rare among non-carnivores. In unvaccinated humans, untreated rabies is almost invariably fatal. The stereotypical image of an infected ("rabid") animal is a "mad dog" foaming at the mouth, but cats, ferrets, raccoons, chipmunks, skunks, foxes and bats also become rabid. Squirrels, other rodents and rabbits are very seldom infected, perhaps because they would not usually survive an attack by a rabid animal. Rabies may also present in a so-called 'paralytic' form, rendering the infected animal unnaturally quiet and withdrawn. The virus is usually present in the saliva of a symptomatic rabid animal; the route of infection is nearly always by a bite. By causing the infected animal to be exceptionally aggressive, the virus ensures its transmission to the next host. Transmission has occurred via an aerosol through mucous membranes; transmission in this form may have happened in people exploring caves populated by rabid bats. Transmission from person to person is extremely rare, and can happen through transplant surgery, or (even more rarely) bites or kisses. A case of transmission via organ transplants happened in June 2004, in Texas (US), when organs from a man infected with rabies caused the death of three recipients. Rabies tests are not conducted on organs destined for transplantation.

    Once infection occurs, the rabies virus grows in muscle tissue and may go undetected for several days or months. During this incubation (or latent) period, the animal appears healthy and shows no sign of infection. Usually within 1 to 3 months, the virus migrates to the nerves near the site of the infection and spreads to the spinal cord and brain (i.e., the central nervous system). It usually takes from 12 to 180 days to spread through the peripheral nerves to the central nervous system. At this point, the disease progresses rapidly, and the animal begins to show the classic behavioral signs of rabies. The virus spreads to the saliva, tears, breast milk, and urine. The animal usually dies in 4 or 5 days. Rabies causes typical symptoms. The infection progresses in a predictable manner, from the initial prodormal phase to the excitative, or furious, phase to the final paralytic phase.

    Rabies and Feral Cats
    Facts and Control Much of the U.S. is currently experiencing a wildlife rabies epidemic. Wildlife managers, animal control agencies and the animal protection community face important decisions on how best to control this disease. Feral cats are all too often caught in the middle of misguided efforts to protect human health by exterminating wild, feral, and stray animals. These efforts are not only cruel, but ineffective, costly, and difficult to implement. Alley Cat Allies promotes compassionate non-lethal solutions to problems resulting from human/wildlife interactions. Scientific evidence from around the world confirms the long term viability of non-lethal population and disease control through sterilization, birth control, and oral vaccination of wildlife. These methods represent an effective and humane approach to the rabies epidemic. Rabies and Humans
      Rabies is an acute viral infection of the central nervous system. Of all the zoonotic diseases,(1) it is one of the most feared and misunderstood even though its threat to humans in the U.S. is very small. Left untreated, rabies is deadly, producing excruciatingly painful symptoms and usually fatal. Media accounts also tend to sensationalize and reinforce popular misconceptions. Much unnecessary anxiety and fear could be relieved by understanding that rabies in the U.S. is primarily a disease of wildlife which can be controlled, and its threat to humans and companion animals minimized.
      Most cases are transmitted through the bite of an infected animal. All animal bites should be immediately flushed and cleansed with soap and water, then given prompt medical attention. Rabies is treatable when caught early, before symptoms appear. Exposure risk can be further minimized by following a few simple precautions.

    Definition: 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: 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.
