Customer Question

We have an outdoor kitten who was acting wierd on Saturday. He was drooling and seemed to lose control of his bladder. Later (about 5 hours later) he was fine running around and playing like normal. We couldn't find him yesterday and today I found him dead. Could this be rabies? We live in the country.

Was your kitten vaccinated for rabies?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
No it wasn't yet.
Expert:  brisadog replied 1 year ago.

OK. Then we have to consider rabies in any cases that showed neurologic signs - which your kitten did. I highly recommend contacting your local animal control officer to have him tested. If your family was exposed to a rabid animal, you will all need treatment to protect you.

Would the symptoms come and go like these did?
Expert:  brisadog replied 1 year ago.

It's definitely possible.
