What is Rabies
Overview

Rabies is a deadly disease that all mammals, including people, can get.

The rabies virus is present in the saliva of animals. When the skin is broken or punctured by a bite, the saliva can enter the blood stream of humans and other animals.

If you are bitten by an animal carrying rabies, the disease may be passed on to you. A series of shots, given in the arm, are essential to prevent the disease in those exposed to rabies.
