Rabies Control

Rabies is a viral disease of man and other warm-blooded animals. The rabies virus attacks the central nervous system and, if the disease is not treated, causes the death of its host. Rabies is usually transmitted from animal to man via a bite from a rabid animal. The wound is contaminated with the virus found in the saliva of the infected animal. Usually, the signs of rabies develop within two to thirteen weeks after the bite has occurred. If the bite is on the head or face or is of a severe nature, signs of the disease may manifest themselves in as few as ten days. Preventing rabies is much more desirable than having to treat people following an exposure to the virus. Creating a barrier between the rabies virus and people is an excellent method of prevention. Immunization of dogs and cats create an effective barrier. All municipalities under contract with the Middlesex County Public Health Department offer free vaccination programs for dogs and cats. Vaccinations are also available through your local vetanarian. Please contact the municipality to verify date, time, location and the local regulations prior to the clinic.
