What is Rabies?

Rabies is a virus which spread to people from the saliva of infected animals. The rabies virus is usually transmitted by a bite.


It is caused by rabies virus. The animals most likely to transmit the rabies virus to people include:

Pet Animals

  • Cats
  • Cows
  • Dogs
  • Ferrets
  • Goats
  • Horses

Wild Animals

  • Bats
  • Beavers
  • Coyotes
  • Foxes
  • Monkeys
  • Raccoons
  • Skunks
  • Woodchucks


  • Fever
  • A headache
  • Nausea
  • Vomiting
  • Agitation
  • Anxiety
  • Confusion
  • Hyperactivity
  • Difficulty swallowing
  • Excessive salivation
  • Fear of water
  • Hallucinations
  • Insomnia
  • Partial paralysis


There is no way to know whether the animal has transmitted the rabies virus or not. So treatment to prevent the rabies virus from infecting your body is recommended.


There is no effective treatment once a rabies infection is established. If you think you have been exposed to rabies, you must get a series of shots to prevent the infection from taking hold.


  • Vaccinate your pets
  • Keep your pets confined
  • Protect small pets from predators
  • Don’t approach wild animals
  • Keep bats out of your home
