Rabies Is Always A Concern. What Do You Do?

Recommended Posts

Keep your Hunting dog's safe as well as your family.

Our Animal Control Admin. told me only 10% of dogs and cats

in Webster County are vaccinated.

Here is some expert information I received.

Rabies is possible in all fur bearing mammals. And can be

contracted through touch as well a bites. A lick on an open wound

can result in contracting rabies. Racoon's, skunks

and Possum are the most frequent carriers. It is also deadly

and cannot be cured. The only possible treatment if given

within the first 24 hours is the vaccination. It isn't given

preemptively because it is given in a series of three shots per

day for ten days and they are given into the abdominal cavity.
