Rabies is a Deadly, Yet Preventable Disease

Published on December 21st, 2012

This video discusses the prevention of and diagnostic procedures for rabies. Both humans and animals are eligible for vaccinations against this disease, and the video recommends them as important preventative measures for both humans and dogs.
Rabies is a neurotropic disease—meaning that it moves toward brain tissue after infection. As a result, the only way to diagnose this condition in dogs is through euthanasia. A dog must be put to sleep and its brain tissue examined in order to determine if it is infected with rabies.

Rabies is a real danger of dog bites, particularly with animals that are not up to date on vaccinations. If you experienced pain due to a dog bite in Illinois, contact the personal injury team at Shea Law Group.
