    Rabies - What You Need To Know
    Rabies is a disease caused by a virus found in the saliva of infected animals and is transmitted to pets and humans by bites, or possibly by contamination of an open cut. Treatment of an infected person as critical. Untreated, rabies causes a painful death. Most animals can be infected by the virus and can transmit the disease to man. Infected bats, raccoons, foxes, skunks, dogs or cats provide the greatest risk to humans. Rabies may also spread through exposure to infected domestic farm animals, groundhogs , weasels and other wild carnivores. Squirrels, rodents and rabbits are seldom infected.
    How Can You Prevent Rabies?
    • Have your pets vaccinated against rabies. Any pets which come in contact with wild animals are at risk. Many local health departments conduct public vaccination clinics for dogs and cats. Your veterinarian can also vaccinate your pet against rabies. D uring recent years, confirmed cases of rabies in cats have exceeded the reported cases in dogs in some parts of the United States making vaccination and booster shots critical to your health and that of your pets.
    • If your cat or dog has been bitten or attacked by a wild animal or has bites or scratches of unknown origin, call your local health department or animal control officer to report the incident.

    4. Compendium Of Animal Rabies Control, 2000
    the 2000 version of the Compendium of Animal rabies Prevention and Control for distribution to practicing veterinarians
    Compendium of Animal Rabies Prevention and Control, 2000 The National Association of State Public Health Veterinarians (NASPHV) is pleased to provide the 2000 version of the Compendium of Animal Rabies Prevention and Control for distribution to practicing veterinarians and officials in animal control, public health, wildlife management, and agriculture in each state. Please note the addition of “prevention” to the title, a change that the Compendium Committee members and consultants believe is a more accurate reflection of the purpose for the document. This preface points out other changes that were made in the document this year and summarizes some of the discussions that took place during the Compendium meeting.
    Compendium Changes
    In Part I: B. Vaccine Selection, a change was made to address the issue of vaccines licensed by the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) between Compendium meetings. The Compendium document lists all rabies vaccines licensed by USDA and marketed in the United States so by default any vaccines licensed between meeting of the Compendium Committee should be considered part of the list. In Part I: C. Route of Inoculation, the reference to one site in the thigh was removed and replaced with the generic statement, “in accordance with the specifications of the product label or package insert” because each vaccine has its own recommendation. Information regarding where to report adverse reactions or vaccine failures was added to this section. The Compendium members and consultants believe that these data are critical to assessing vaccine efficacy and safety in the field and urge practitioners to be conscientious about reporting.

      Fact Sheet N° 99
      Revised June 2001 RABIES
      Rabies is a zoonotic viral disease which infects domestic and wild animals. It is transmitted to other animals and humans through close contacts with saliva from infected animals (ie. bites, scratches, licks on broken skin and mucous membranes). Once symptoms of the disease develop, rabies is fatal to both animals and humans. The first symptoms of rabies are usually non-specific and suggest involvement of the respiratory, gastrointestinal and/or central nervous systems. In the acute stage, signs of hyperactivity (furious rabies) or paralysis (dumb rabies) predominate. In both furious and dumb rabies, paralysis eventually progresses to complete paralysis followed by coma and death in all cases, usually due to respiratory failure. Death occurs during the first seven days of illness without intensive care. Incidence Reliable data on rabies are scarce in many areas of the globe, making it difficult to assess its full impact on human and animal health. The annual number of deaths worldwide caused by rabies is estimated to be between 40 000 and as high as 70 000 if higher case estimates are used for densely populated countries in Africa and Asia where rabies is endemic. An estimated 10 million people receive post-exposure treatments each year after being exposed to rabies suspect animals. Since 1990 rabies in wildlife has been eliminated in some Western European countries that have conducted oral vaccination campaigns. With the help of this technique rabies could eventually be totally eliminated from its terrestrial reservoirs in Western Europe. Oral vaccination programs for dogs have been or are in the process of being evaluated in a few developing countries where canine rabies is endemic. Dramatic decreases in human cases of rabies have also been reported during recent years in China, Thailand, Sri Lanka and Latin America following implementation of programmes for improved post-exposure treatment of humans and the vaccination of dogs.

    Oral Rabies Vaccination Programs (ORVP)
    The Zoonosis Control Division's Oral Rabies Vaccination Programs (ORVP) were created to eliminate rabies in coyotes ( Canis latrans ) in South Texas and rabies in gray foxes( Urocyon cinereoargenteus ) in West Central Texas. Both the South Texas Program and the West Central Texas Program utilize an oral rabies vaccine encased into a bait matrix. The vaccine/bait units are distributed aerially along transect lines. This ensures a consistent coverage of the target area. Each of the Programs has its own variation of bait matrix and bait/vaccine unit distribution density adapted for the individual target species. To learn more about the Texas ORVP look through our web site.

    8. UK Rabies Quarantine Policy For Domestic Pets
    Obtain detailed information on current quarantine laws and updates in the U.K. Quarantine information for other countries also provided.
    Welcome to our Rabies Quarantine Information Page
    Britain's pet quarantine laws need change. It's easy to find responsible officials testifying the UK quarantine law is inadequate and cruel . A 1994 House of Commons Agriculture Committee report called for immediate total reform. The reason? Other controls would better protect against rabies entering the UK. A 6-month quarantine is no longer the best protection. At last, the Government has started formal discussion of some alternatives. UK rabies quarantine applies only to pets. Too many die there, none from rabies. Tes ts can prove an inoculated pet won't get rabies. Tested, and with identity microchips , British animals could safely cross frontiers unhindered, like other European pets. For more information, please explore the links below. We appreciate your feedback , particularly if you find any errors of fact or presentation in these pages. The UK's quarantine process is complex. The law forces you to surrender your imported animal to the operator of one of the country's quarantine facilities , on his contractual terms. How these entrepreneurs conduct their business is not regulated, disease security and isolation requirements apart. Some words written about the quarantine process gloss over this enforced separation, but the literature is still peppered with

  • Abstract
  • Key Words Rabies animal bites epidemiology. Introduction A nimal bite is a major public health problem not only for the associated risk of acquiring secondary infections including those by C. tetani, C. perfringens and occasional death due to trauma (which occurs often in children) but also for the possibility of contracting rabies which, if left unrecognized and untreated, is almost invariably fatal. In the countries of the Eastern Mediterranean Region of the World Health Organization (WHO), rabies has been recognized as an important health problem. Tourists visiting these countries are strongly advised to undergo pre-exposure vaccination. According to WHO reports, the following figures represent the number of human deaths due to rabies in these countries in 1995 ( Table 1 ). Pakistan, though not listed in

    Rabies is a deadly disease caused by a virus that attacks the nervous system. The virus is present in the saliva and nervous tissue of a rabid animal. WHAT ANIMALS CAN GET RABIES? Rabies is most often seen among wild mammals such as raccoons, bats, skunks and foxes. Cats, dogs, ferrets and livestock can also get rabies if they are not vaccinated to protect them. Deer and large rodents, such as woodchucks, have been found rabid in areas affected by raccoon rabies. Some animals almost never get rabies. These include wild rabbits, squirrels, chipmunks, rats, mice, guinea pigs, gerbils and hamsters. They can get rabies, but it almost never happens. There are other animals that never ever get rabies. They are birds, snakes, fish, turtles, lizards and insects. WHAT ARE THE SIGNS OF RABIES IN ANIMALS? The first sign of rabies is usually a change in the animal's behavior. It may become unusually aggressive or unusually tame. The animal may lose fear of people and natural enemies. It may become excited, irritable and snap at anything in its path. Or, it may appear affectionate and friendly. Staggering, convulsions, spitting, choking, frothing at the mouth and paralysis are sometimes noted. Many animals have a marked change in voice. The animal usually dies within one week after showing signs of rabies. HOW DO PEOPLE BECOME EXPOSED TO RABIES?

    Importing food, plant, animal products U.S. State Department Pan American Health Organization World Health Organization Rabies Description Rabies is an acute, fatal encephalomyelitis caused by neurotropic viruses in the family Rhabdoviridae, genus Lyssavirus, almost always transmitted by an animal bite that innoculates the virus into wounds. Very rarely rabies has been transmitted by nonbite exposures that introduce the virus into open wounds or mucous membranes. The disease progresses from a nonspecific prodromal phase to paresis or paralysis; spasms of swallowing muscles can be stimulated by the sight, sound, or perception of water (hydrophobia); delirium and convulsions can develop, followed by coma and death. All mammals are believed to be susceptible, but reservoirs consist of carnivores and bats. Although dogs are the main reservoir in developing countries, the epidemiology of the disease differs sufficiently from one region or country to another to warrant the medical evaluation of all mammal bites. Occurrence Rabies is found on all continents, except Antarctica. In certain areas of the world, canine rabies remains highly endemic, including (but not limited to) parts of Brazil, Bolivia, Colombia, Ecuador, El Salvador, Guatemala, India, Mexico, Nepal, Peru, the Philippines, Sri Lanka, Thailand, and Vietnam. The disease is also found in dogs in most of the other countries of Africa, Asia, and Central and South America, except as may be noted in

The Role of Disease Surveillance in the Watch for Agro-terrorism or Economic Sabotage FAS addresses these issues through public education and international collaboration. The project's operational arm, ILIAD-Tanzania , is a pilot test of a surveillance system designed for remote rural areas in developing or reorganizing countries. Eschewing passive surveillance in favor of a pro-active, response-oriented, continuously operating network that begins at the village level, this system offers the promise of timely and accurate disease detection, diagnosis, prevention, and control. As a fully collaborative program between veterinary service workers, local farmers, wildlife conservation personnel and local governments, it provides a logistical framework for treatment, education and outbreak reporting. It is anticipated that the program will, over time, alleviate poverty in remote villages by increasing livestock and poultry production, control zoonotic diseases in human populations, and prevent disease epidemics in wild animal populations.

    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.
