Overview

Rabies considered as one of the most deadly viruses is transmitted through animals who are the main Carriers of the disease. Usually transmitted through bites, such disease can also spread from contact with saliva. Such a disease is not to be taken lightly and requires the immediate treatment by a general physician as soon as it is detected.

Rabies Symptoms

The symptoms for such a disease are very prominent and easily noticeable making early stage possible. Among the many, a few rabies symptoms are as following:

  • Incubation
  • Confusion and aggression
  • Partial paralysis, involuntary muscle twitching, and rigid neck muscles
  • Convulsions
  • Hyperventilation and difficulty breathing
  • Coma

Causes of Rabies

Rabies is mainly caused due to transmission of the virus that is usually carried by animals. Some animals pick up the disease without being affected by it and act as a host until transmitting it to a live person. The animals responsible for the rabies cause are:

  • Cats
  • Cows
  • Dogs
  • Ferrets
  • Goats
  • Horses

Rabies & Coma

Though not directly related to rabies or any other disease, patients going into a coma are a possible outcome. Rabies at its preliminary stage is easily detectable through prominent symptoms. However, if ignored, it proceeds to affect the neurological functions causing our body to respond by shutting down. Rabies is potentially lethal if left untreated therefore requires the service of a general physician immediately.

Diagnosing Rabies

At the time of receiving a bite from a Rogue animal, there is no way to know for sure it is carrying the rabies virus. Therefore, all rabies specialists recommend treating the wound and use recommended vaccinations and medications beforehand as a precaution and prevention.

Rabies Treatment

Due to the disease having a high fatality count, rabies treatment must be undertaken immediately at the first signs of symptoms. Treatment includes a fast-acting shot of injection in the area of the bite and a series of rabies vaccination for 14 days from the time of injury.
