Rabies is a virus that is damaging to the central nervous system. It causes disease of the brain and leads to death if the person or pet has not been currently vaccinated against it. Foaming at the mouth or hyper-salivation is perhaps the most well-known symptom but others include insomnia, anxiety, confusion, slight or partial paralysis, excitation, hallucinations, agitation, difficulty swallowing and hydrophobia (fear of water). Transmission of rabies occurs through the saliva of an infected animal usually in the form of biting or licking.
We were able to vaccinate 50 dogs in Khokhana, Lalitpur Metropolitan City, this evening. The community helped us to catch the dogs.
Help us help eliminate Rabies.
