Rabies Prevention Tips

Rabies is a fatal virus that can be spread from animals to humans through pet bites. When a person suspects that he or she has been bitten by an animal with rabies, it is imperative that the individual immediately seeks medical attention to halt the progression of the virus. Each year, approximately 40,000 individuals in the U.S. receive treatment for suspected rabies exposure, but this number can be greatly reduced if pet owners act responsibly and take steps to prevent the spread of rabies.

If you’ve been exposed to rabies due to a dog bite, you could be entitled to financial compensation from the owner of the animal if he or she acted negligently in his or her pet ownership responsibilities. To speak with an attorney who can help you understand your legal rights and options, contact a Michigan dog bite attorney of Ravid & Associates, P.C., today at 877-PET-BITE.

How Dog Owners Can Help Prevent the Spread of Rabies

There are a few simple steps that a dog owner can take to keep his or her pet safe from contracting rabies. As a result, this protects those around the animal from contracting rabies if they are bitten by the dog. Some precautions include:

  • Taking the dog to the vet and staying updated on rabies shots
  • Having the dog spayed or neutered in order to prevent the attraction of stray dogs that carry rabies
  • Making sure to accompany the dog when it goes outside in an unfenced area
  • Keeping garbage securely contained in garbage cans in order to prevent wild or stray animals from being attracted to the house

In these ways, dog owners help to protect themselves, their dogs, and any visitors who come into contact with their pets.
