How Can People Prevent Rabies?
Prevention of rabies depends on decreasing the disease in the animal kingdom. Avoid contact with wild animals and strays. Have your pets (including cats, dogs, and ferrets) vaccinated against rabies. Keep pets under control and away from wild animals and strays. Call animal-control services to remove stray animals from your neighborhood.
What Is the Prognosis for Rabies?
If you get timely, appropriate wound care and rabies shots, you will be virtually 100% protected against rabies.
