The Phases of Rabies


Vaccinating your american eskimo from rabies is one of the most important preventative measures to ensure its health. Since, the rabies virus is a slow developing illness that spreads slowly, a vaccination can be the difference between a long life and fatality. Review the following phases of rabies

Chow Chows have very unusual mouths. When they are born they look normal enough. However, by the age of about 8 weeks, their gums and tongues go from pink to an odd shade of bluish-black.

Subsequent to being in contact with the rabies virus, a DOG, cat or other pet will endure from one to all phases of the disease. However, not all animals experience the same symptoms. For instance, only a few skunks may not exhibit any overt symptoms, but it can become a lifelong carrier of rabies. Nevertheless, the vast majority of infected animals spread throughout the nipped animal's nerve endings to the direction of the brain.

An American foxhound became one of the most amazing mothers in the dog world when she set a record for the largest litter of puppies in 1944. She had not one, not two, not even ten, but twenty-three puppies!

As the rabies virus gradually progresses, it has an average incubation period from exposure to the brain from three to eight weeks in DOGS. In felines, the incubation period is between two and six weeks. Amongst humans, the incubation ranges from three to six weeks. Despite the average incubation periods, in humans incubations have lasted as long as a year in individuals and six months in canine.

Basset hounds are fabulous at hunting and they make wonderful companion dogs. However, even with those great qualities, basset hounds are horrible swimmers! Their legs are simply too small to keep their heavy, long bodies afloat properly.

Once the rabies virus reaches the brain, it distributes itself to the salivary glands where it was transmitted via biting. Generally, animals where the virus has reached the brain, an animal will bear one, two, or even all three of the various phases:

The dachshund's name comes from it's earliest use. The dachshund was originally a badger hunter. In German, Dachs means "badger," Hund is "hound". This explains the breed's curious and inquisitive nature, which has survived to this day.

*Prodromal phase *Furious phase *Paralytic (dumb) phase

The largest breed of dog that is recognized by the American Kennel Club is the Irish Wolfhound, which stands thirty to 30 to 35 inches at the top of the shoulders and weighs 105 to 125 pounds.

Prodromal phase is the initial stage of the rabies virus. It transpires from two to three days in canines. Other DOG symptoms include the following: a fever, solitude, nervousness, anxiety and apprehension. Loving DOGS may show signs of irritability, shyness. Aggressive canines will act unlike themselves, abnormally affectionate. Constant licking the site of the bite is prevalent.

Many people will swear that they own a golden labrador. The problem is that golden labradors do not exist! There is no purebred dog called a golden lab. The dog is probably either a golden retriever or a labrador retriever.

Both the furious and paralytic or dumb phase are just as the stage implies and last one to seven and two to four days respectively in DOGS.

The Podengo, a rare breed of dog, is also known as the Portuguese Warren Hound. It is usually a fawn or yellow color, but can be brown, black or sooty colored without white patches or spots. It resembled a long-bodied chihuahua.
