AbstractRabies is a preventable disease caused by a virus that affects the nervous system. If an exposed person does not receive immediate medical care, disease and death will follow. Rabies is always fatal. In the United States, most rabies exposures occur when people interact with wild animals like bats, skunks, foxes and raccoons. But other animals like bobcats, coyotes, javelina, cats, dogs, horses, cattle, and many other mammals can carry rabies and infect people and pets.
