Rabies

Common Name(s)

Rabies

Rabies is a deadly virus spread by saliva. People can get the virus from getting bitten by an infected animal. Bats, coyotes, foxes, racoons, and skunks are likely to have rabies. Beginning symptoms of rabies are similar to the flu and include fever, nausea, aches, excessive salivation and paralysis. If have been bitten or think you have been bitten by a wild or domestic animal carrying rabies, seek immediate medical attention. If caught early, there is a series of shots available that can prevent the rabies virus from taking hold.
