Rabies is transmitted by an animal's saliva, not by a scratch. Any mammal CAN carry rabies, but it is fairly rare.
humans get rabies from an animal bite or scratch.
Yeah, if the monkey has rabies.
Rabies can be transmitted by a dog scratch. If a dog has rabies he would be more likely to bite you than to scratch you. If you have contact with a dog who you suspect may have rabies contact your physician as soon as possible for an appointment to visit their office.
You can get sick from the bacteria transferred in a cat scratch. You would go to the doctor for antibiotics. Rabies would not result.no
Rabies can be transmitted through a wound, scratch or abrasion when it comes in contact with the saliva of a rabid animal, and through a scratch inflicted by an animal if fresh saliva is on the nail of the animal that inflicts the scratch. Further, rabies can be airborne in bat caves.
that doesn't have shots taken by a vet
Yes, and it doesn't have to be a scratch. You can also get it from touching an animal with rabies blood or saliva (spit) and putting your hand in your mouth or touching a wound on your body.
You can get rabies from a scratch from a rabid animal. Cats, dogs and ferrets in particular lick their paws and could get saliva on their claws. When the skin is broken as in a scratch, it is possible to transmit rabies. You should always call your doctor if you are bit or scratched by a wild or stray animal.
Usually no, because rabies is transmitted through blood or saliva. However, if you are scratched by an animal with rabies, it is best to get it checked out.
NO you cannot get rabies from a scratch even if the animal has rabies. That was a good question. Rabies is transmitted through saliva. This means the animal must bite you in order to transmit the disease. YES!!! you can get rabies from a scratch. If the animal is licking its paws the saliva is transmitted to the claws as well. It may be a little more difficult however it is still just as dangerous.
If the squirrel is rabid, yes.
no ,it cant occor
if any of their body fluid god into your wound it could, but only if that monkey had rabies
Only if the kitten actually has rabies and you receive a bite or a scratch from it. Any animal or human with rabies is capable of transferring it to another living being.
It is unlikely. Rabies is caught by the transfer of bodily fluids, and if an infected cat bites you, you may get rabies from his saliva. In order to catch rabies from a cat scratch, the cat must have bodily fluids on his claws, which is unlikely unless his feet are bleeding for some reason. If a cat gets into a fight with a rabid cat, and then scratches you when you try to separate them, it is possible that the rabid cat's blood can get into the scratch.
Rabies is found only in the saliva of the infected. So, no, you can't get rabies by being scratched by a cat. Unless, of course, it drools on the wound after it scratches you.
Hamsters don't get rabies. Actually hamsters are mammals and therefore it is possible for them to have rabies, however it is not likely. you can not heal rabies, take the hamster to the vet and do not allow it to scratch or bite you, if it has talk to a doctor immediatly.
The answer is no. If you are worried about a little scratch from a rat you shouldn't be. As long as you clean it out well and keep it unexposed you should be fine. The only way rabies can be transmitted is if the animal has rabies(this does not include pets)and it bites you and it draws blood. Do not worry and if it makes you feel better,see a doctor.
they take their fingernail and scratch the tip of their nose if they wanna live
Only if the puppy is diagnosed with rabies. Might be an idea to get it checked out.
FOR LIFE LONG ........... IF THEY ARE FULL COURSE OF FIVE..AND IF THE INJURY IS NOT SEVERE ie...a scratch or a scratch of teeth and its a Home Dog..
Only if the cat had just licked it's paw. Rabies is transmitted through the saliva. I'm pretty sure the skin has to be broken, though. But be careful!! You could get cat scratch disease from it. Oh and keep in mind that the cat must have rabies to transfer it. It will be foaming from the mouth and be acting very hostile towards you.
Sometimes, yes - individuals in the terminal phase of a rabies infection can become extremely aggressive and attempt to bite, scratch and otherwise harm those around them.
No, rabies is spread in the saliva of infected animals, so a simple scratch with a nail would not expose you to rabies. Also, if the dog is not infected with rabies, you would not need to go through the vaccine series. However, if you were scratched by a tooth and the dog was found to be infected with rabies, you would need post-exposure rabies vaccination to protect yourself.
