Frequently Asked Questions
My child was bitten by a mouse (shrew,rat or monkey). Must he/she receive anti-rabies treatment?
If bitten by a shrew or rat then contracting rabies is not likely, however seek medical attention to treat bite wounds as they can become infected. If bitten by a monkey, depending on the behaviour of the animal, anti-rabies treatment may be indicated, seek medical attention.
