Yes, rabies is transmitted through saliva. If the animal licked

it's claws then there's a possibility that you might get rabies.

Do not wait for symptoms.

See a doctor immediately the same day you got scratched.

Rabies is transmitted by an animal's saliva, not by a scratch. Any mammal CAN carry rabies, but it is fairly rare.

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
