Same as Hydrophobia (b); canine madness.
a widespread, viral, potentially fatal infection spread through the bite of certain warm-blooded animals that attacks the nervous system.
viral infection of the nervous system, it attacks all warm-blooded animals. Usually fatal to dogs, cats, livestock, and humans.
A fatal, if untreated, viral disease of mammals that's spread to humans by the bite of infected animal.
A fatal viral infection. Rabies is transmitted by the bite of an infected mammal.
A fatal infection affecting the central nervous system. The virus is transmitted primarily through the bite of an infected animal.
A disease of the nervous system caused by the rabies virus. Rabies is marked by an increase in saliva production, abnormal behavior, and eventual paralysis and death.
is a virus transmitted through bites of infected animals (including skunks, rats and raccoons). It affects the spinal cord and brain. Symptoms: excitement, paralysis, and personality changes.
an acute, usually fatal disease, a form of viral encephalitis, that is transmitted through the saliva of an infected animal (usually a dog, cat, skunk, or raccoon) (Morris 1992).
Usually fatal virus disease of warm-blooded animals causing paralysis, convulsions, and inability to swallow; usually spread by bites from infected animals.
Acute infectious disease of the central nervous system caused by an RNA virus of the rhabdovirus group.
disease that affects an animal's brain and causes the animal to wander and bit at other animals. It is spread by the bite of an infected animal.
an acute viral disease of the nervous system of warm-blooded animals (usually transmitted by the bite of a rabid animal); rabies is fatal if the virus reaches the brain
A viral disease of wild animals that can be transmitted to humans through the bite of an infected animal. The disease has not yet been detected in Australia.
This infectious disease can make your Great Dane go from a 'gentle giant' to a sick mad-dog. Rabies can and should be prevented with vaccination when your Great Dane is just a puppy. There are three phases a rabid Great Dane will go through (if infected with Rabies): prodomal, furious, and lastly paralytic. The last stage usually results in respiratory problems, coma and death.
An infectious disease of the central nervous system in mammals, caused by a lyssavirus. Usually transferred by the bite of an infected animal, such as dogs, skunks, racoons, or rarely bats. Characterized by choking, convulsions, inability to swallow, etc. Different genetic strains are now recognized and can be identified by tests. Transfer of rabies from bats via aerosols to caged animals in a cave has been demonstrated, but has not been proven in humans.
An infectious viral disease primarily affecting animals; can be transmitted to humans through an infected animal's bite; if untreated, can result in paralysis and death.
A virus that affects the central nervous system of mammals, ultimately resulting in death. Rabies can be transmitted from one animal to another, and from animals to humans.
Fatal disease spread by bites or contact with the saliva of an infected animal
an acute viral disease of the nervous system of warm-blooded animals that is usually transmitted through the bite of a rabid animal. Though chances of your ferret contracting rabies are remote, make sure your pet receives annual booster shots.
A viral infection that affects the nervous system, causing either hyperactivity or extreme listlessness.
An acute, infectious, often fatal viral disease of most warm-blooded animals, especially wolves, cats, and dogs, which attacks the central nervous system and is transmitted by the bite of infected animals.
a widespread, viral infection of warm-blooded animals caused by a virus in the Rhabdoviridae family Rabies attacks the nervous system and, once symptoms develop, is 100 percent fatal in animals.
Latin for fury or rage. A viral disease affecting mammals transmitted primarily through direct contact with the saliva of an infected animal, most commonly by a bite.
Caused by a virus found in the saliva of infected animals, and transmitted to pets and humans by bites, or contamination of an open cut. Untreated, rabies causes a painful death. Most animals can be infected by rabies; infected bats, raccoons, foxes, skunks, dogs or cats pose the biggest threat to humans. If your cat has been bitten or attacked by a wild animal, and has bites or scratches of unknown origin, contact your vet to report the incident.

It is compulsory for you to have your cats vaccinated against rabies if you want to participate in the Pet Passports Scheme.
A virus that causes depression, madness, and eventually death.
Inevitably fatal viral disease, primarily of bats and carnivores, characterized by neurologic dysfunction caused by a rhabdovirus.
a widespread, viral infection spread through the bite of certain warm-blooded animals. It attacks the nervous system and, if left untreated, is 100 percent fatal in animals.
A zoonotic viral disease, transmitted to humans though close contacts with saliva from infected domestic and wild animals, which causes respiratory, gastrointestinal and/or central nervous system symptoms. Once symptoms of the disease develop, it is fatal in both animals and humans.
Rabies (Latin, rabies, "madness, rage, fury") is a viral zoonotic disease that causes acute encephalitis (brain swelling) in mammals. In non-vaccinated humans, rabies is almost invariably fatal after neurological symptoms have developed, but prompt post-exposure vaccination may prevent the virus from progressing.
