Abstract

The extensive animal contact dictated by the nature of their careers exposes veterinarians to a multitude of zoonoses, one of which is rabies. In one survey, over 22 % of responding veterinarians reponed the necessity of having post-exposure rabies vaccinations. the vast majority of which were the result of patient examination.' In this light, exposure to rabies of veterinarians may be less a question of "if" and more a question of "when".
