Rabies is a deadly disease caused by Rhabdo Virus that unfortunately does not have a cure. It is a neurological disease which may take several days to a few months to show its symptoms but once the virus spreads to the brain, death occurs quickly. This virus affects both humans and animals. The carriers of the virus are foxes, wolves, bats, skunks, dogs and cats and they spread it through their saliva by biting or licking.
