As far as I know rabies is transmitted thru a BITE not from a scratch. :)

I agree with Ate Xyla. The transmission of rabies highly involves the saliva of the infected animal.

kung may rabies ang aso and na-transmit sayo within 2weeks you'd be both dead! So its much better that upon the bite incident rush to the nearest clinic/hospital and ask for an anti-rabies injection.

Hi. I had this experience.

About 4-5 years ago, kinagat ako ng daga while sleeping dun sa province namin. Lol. Nagising ako ang nakita ko yung daga nagulat ung gumalaw ako pero nasa tabi ko parin tapos ayun pinaalis ko then back to sleep ulit ako. When I woke up in the morning I told my aunt and she immediately told me to wash my elbow (dun kasi ako kinagat ng mabait). Then she prayed over it. Luckily I'm still alive! Lol.

Last week, Tuesday evening when my pup bit me sa left leg ko naman. Wala pang shots sya of any kind and 7 weeks old palang sya nun. Learning that rabies can be acquired from the saliva, I immediately washed it with soap and running water for 5 mins or so. It didn't bleed and I didn't force it to bleed. Sa sobrang takot ko nag search search ako sa internet about rabies. Naglagay narin ako ng bawang sa sobrang takot. Kasi puppies daw malakas mag transmit nito satin. After 3 days, I went to San Lazaro Hospital to have a vaccine. Mahal ang gastos pero okei na yun kesa ma endanger pa buhay ko. :)

BTW, ang alam ko pag pusa ang kumalmot sayo, there is a possibility na magka rabies ka. Tapos kagat ng dog, cats, rats or even bats pwede ka mag ka rabies. So sa cats lang ang nangangalmot na may rabies.

agree with that... may dad and sister testified it. anyway masama daw ang bawang sabe ng doctors it will only make things worse pero good enough you have acquired an anti-rabies before its too late.  8)

not necessarily.. may mga factors na iconsider.. like kung ang aso ay hindi naman rabid/ hindi infected.. and depende sa location ng kagat.. kung mas malapit sa ulo,mukha, mas mabilis sa utak.. kunwari naman, na kagat ng isang rabid animal, hindi yun kaagad agad mamanifest, kase may mga instances na within 10 years(maximum) pa lang makikita symptoms. It has been said na, umaakyat ang microorganism papuntang brain 1-2cm per month., so kung sa binti makagat, hindi kaagad agad makikita symptoms. so, better, kung makagat, or masugat dahil sa bites, immediately, consult na to the hospital.

Wow, para sa akin, ito ang pinaka-ayaw kong way na mamatay. Haha. I've thought about it and from the documentaries I saw about it... Mas gugustuhin ko pang masunog nang buhay. Lol.

Yung mga nababaliw na naglalaway. I mean, nauulol pala. Ugh, terrible. :(

Anyway, be sure to get all your pets anti-rabies vaccines. :D

Yup. I agree. Pero kahit ata pag nakalmot ka ng aso, may possibility din na magkarabies ka. Kapag yung nails nila may saliva. Kunwari na lick nila. Ganun.

Sobrang delikado ng rabies lalo na pag umabot na pag di naagapan. Nag duty kame sa San Lazaro last week tapos may room sila para sa mga rabies patients. Madilim tapos mukhang mainit dun sa room at may lock.  Kase di ba irreversible na yun pag umabot ng stage 2. Tapos dun nila nilalagay yung mga patients na mayroon ng hydrophobia, aerophobia, and photophobia. So yun.

Kaya kahit nakalmot lang kayo ng aso or nakagat ng konti eh magpa inject na kayo agad. Para sure di ba. ;)

I was there last week too. :) Andaming story kung paano sila kinagat ng mga aso at pusa.

@ayen08
Anong mga vaccines prinescribe sayo ng doctor? Did you finish the 5x visit na binigay nila? I just finished my 3rd visit and nagdadalawang isip ako kung i cocontinue ko pa sa 4th and 5th. My parents told me na hindi naman rabid yung kumagat kasi puppy lang and naglalaro lang sya. And her mom have complete shots naman, i think. And sabi nila OK lang kahit 3 shots, kasi hindi naman "naulol" yung aso nung kinagat ako. So now I'm thinking if I'm still going there this coming May.. nyehehe. Hassle rin kasi.

sabi nila kung naka raw ng rabies ang unang gawin is to wash with safeguard?
