Rabies: My experience

Our area has and has had endemic Rabies. I find our local environmentalists to be only mildly interested in prevention or diagnosis. When a head is submitted the state lab wants us to depend on a phone call if the head is positive, no call if not, with a paper form following up to 6 weeks later. I have had a positive skunk within a block of a local walk in elementary school. The police refused to send Rabies Control to bring in the obviously sick skunk until great insistence had been applied. I use a 3 year vaccine only, in my practice, to help me sleep better when a pet 2 years overdue for vaccines is reported to have bitten someone. Small cost to me to know that I am providing and extra mile in protection and prevention
