People who love animals and have pets, can understand the happiness and optimism these companions bring in one’s life. Having a cat, a dog, a guinea pig, a bird or even a chameleon and bringing them up, caring for them, sharing a bond with them, is one of the best parts of having them as pets.
In fact, if you like animals, you’d stop by to feed a stray, or just play with it. Even though they are friendly most of the times, yet sometimes, they are unpredictable and might attack you. Alternatively, sometimes your pets might get into trouble with other stray animals, sometimes to protect you, sometimes to protect themselves. And when that happens there are very thick chances of them contracting infections, infections that could be a threat to them as well as you.
One potential threat is Rabies. Rabies is an acute viral infection that is spread by being attacked by a wild animal with the infection. The infection is present in the saliva of the animal, and once bitten, the virus spreads to the central nervous system of the victim, causing inflammation of the brain. The viral infection is almost all the time fatal.
What are the symptoms of rabies?
The virus takes an incubation period of 3-12 weeks, and start affecting the central nervous system which start showing symptoms of behavioural differences and physical changes, some initial symptoms which include,
- Sore throat
In most cases, symptoms start showing up very late, which makes treatment very difficult. The only treatment can be preventive, or initial precaution. There are vaccinations available to prevent the infection from affecting you.
