Rabies in Kansas

By Dr. Gregg Hanzlicek 

The number of Kansas positive rabies submissions to the KSVDL is relatively low so far this year. In many of the last five to 10 years, bovines have been the most often diagnosed rabies-positive domestic species in Kansas. For any neurologic bovine case, please add rabies to the rule-out list. As a reminder: the appropriate sample to send is the entire brain, including brain stem, as fresh tissue.
