The Virus



Published: Mon, September 4, 2006 @ 12:00 a.m.



THE VIRUS

What is it?

The rabies virus is found in the saliva of affected animals, most often raccoons, skunks and bats, and is spread by a bite or scratch. Bats, raccoons and skunks pose the greatest risk of rabies in Ohio. Suggestions for people to protect themselves against rabies:

Avoid contact with wild animals and animals you do not know.

Vaccinate your pets against rabies and keep them current on their shots.

If bitten, call your doctor. If your pet has contact with a wild animal, call your veterinarian.

Rabies exposures also should be reported to your local health department.
