Treating Rabies in Dogs
There is no treatment for rabies in dogs, and it is a fatal disease. It is recommended that dogs which are exposed to the virus be immediately euthanized. However pet owners may have the option of having the animal confined in isolation for 6 months to ensure that the disease was not transmitted to the dog during the time of exposure. Rabies can be easily prevented through a yearly, or once every three year, vaccination.
Rabies is fatal, and animals infected with the virus usually die within 10 days after their symptoms appear.
