DOG BITES AND RABIES

Dogs are domestic animals which have been known to be friends of man for a very long time. Some use it as pets while others use it for security purposes.

 Dogs like any other wolf can be very aggressive and inflict serious injuries to people around.

When a dog bites, it is advisable to know meet the dog owner and ask about the dog and inquire its health status. If the dog owner owner does not vaccinate the dog or if it is a stray dog, you may need to quarantine the dog and place it under observation. The rabies infected may die within 10 days.
The quarantine is set at 10 days because a rabies-infected animal can only transmit the disease after clinical signs have developed and once these signs have developed, the animal will die within 10 days. If the animal lives beyond the 10th day, it can be said with certainty that it was not shedding the rabies virus at the time that the bite occurred. If the animal dies before the 10th day, it can be tested for rabies. If the test is positive, a human bite victim will still have enough time to receive post-exposure vaccinations and prevent the disease. It doesn't really matter if the rabid dog bites someone or not. The rabies virus will ultimately paralyse the respiratory system and asphyxiate the dog to death in a few days (10–30 days in most cases) after the animals starts showing rabid symptoms. Hence the assumption that rabid dogs die only after biting someone is false and that it is the normal course of the disease which results in the death of the rabid animal.

While it is good to have a dog, it is also important to vaccinate it regularly and also avoid stray dogs as they have no training and are mostly very aggressive.
