Rabies is a viral infection of the central nervous system that can affect all mammals, including humans, and is 100% fatal if left untreated. It is transmitted from animal-to-animal or from animal-to-human primarily through the bite of an infected animal. Rabies virus travels in the nerves from the site of the bite to the brain and spinal cord.Rabid animals undergo personality changes during the course of the disease; these changes may include aggression and biting or, conversely, increased friendliness and affectionateness. Other symptoms may include fever, seizures, paralysis, hydrophobia (fear of water), lack of coordination, excessive excitability, and excessive salivation or foaming at the mouth. Once clinical signs of rabies appear, treatment is not effective and the disease is fatal.
