Page 2 Golden Valley News August 29, 2019 NDDoH seeking information on exposure to puppy with rabies BISMARCK - The North Dakota Department of Health (NDDoH) is working with the South Dakota Department of Health in seeking individuals possibly ex- posed to a rabid puppy or the puppy's littermates. On Aug. 29, a puppy tested pos- itive for rabies in South Dakota. Very little is known about the puppy, but it last resided in Agency Village, S.D. Limited information available is indicating that this puppy had at least three littermates that have been adopted by individ- uals who are unknown. "Our concern is that the litter- mates have been exposed to rabies and may develop rabies and expose their new owners," said Alicia Torfin, epidemiologist with the NDDoH. "It's possible that some of the new owners may be North Dakota residents." Rabies is a viral infection that affects the central nervous system. It is almost always fatal for animals and people. People who are ex- posed to rabies need to begin a se- ries of rabies vaccinations as soon as possible after the exposure. The following recommendations can reduce the risk of rabies to peo- ple: - Routinely vaccinating pets Shown is the puppy that tested positive for rabies. Lit- termates will most likely re- semble this puppy.
