Rabies
by Gary Pfalzbot
About the Author

Rabies is a disease that can affect goats although it is considered to be somewhat rare. Mainly passed from such animals as dogs, skunks, bats, foxes, raccoons as well as any other mammal that could be infected from another mammal. In SE Colorado, it has been reported that prairie dogs can be carriers. Humans can also contract rabies, either through a direct bite or the saliva from an infected animal, so it is very important to recognize changes in behavior and some basic symptoms if they appear: drooling, inabililty to swallow food, depression, aggression, stupor, weakness, circling, excitation, blindness or any repetitive action. If not treated quickly, rabies is generally fatal. At the present time, there is no commercial vaccine available for goats.
