How can I tell if my dog has rabies?
Not even the best professional can tell you if your animal has rabies. The best way to tell is to quarantine the animal for ten (10) days. There is no live animal test for rabies. Clinical signs include a change in behavior, loss of motor apparatus in hind legs, drooling from the mouth, baying or howling. Contact the animal shelter or your veterinarian for more information, or if you feel your animal has rabies or was exposed to an animal with rabies.
