The dog was brown with a white nose, medium-sized with a medium-length coat. The dog was leashed and was being walked by a man. If the dog is identified and found to be in good health by Thursday, May 23rd, the bite victim will not need to be treated with a series of post-exposure rabies shots.

Rabies is a viral disease spread through bites, scratches, and saliva from infected animals. If you or your pet are bitten or scratched by a wild or stray animal, wash the area with soap and water for several minutes. Keep your pet away from other people and pets. Then call your physician or veterinarian and contact the Health Department (410-876-1884).

It is important to keep your pets up to date on their rabies shots. The Health Department holds low-cost rabies vaccination clinics for dogs, cats, and ferrets twice a year. The next clinic is on Sunday, September 15th, 2024 from 2-4 pm at the Ag Center in Westminster; shots are $10 per pet.
