Ask a Vet and Get Your Veterinary Questions Answered.
Welcome to JustAnswer! I am a licensed veterinarian and would be glad to help!
Typically when they develop rabies, they do not improve.
Other causes to consider would include:
Neospora and tick-born infections
They would be more common than rabies.
Especially in a young puppy...
if there was no obvious exposure, that would further the theory that this is not likely rabies.
he did bite me and he broke the skin should i be concerned and go see a doctor
Yes - you should.
That is something that a veterinarian can not advise on - by law - treatment of a person.
if the puppy lives past the ten days does that mean he for sure does not have rabies and this is something else
You should have your dog evaluated, but importantly for your safety - see your physician
my husband thinks the puppy was poisoned. could that be possible
That is possible, maybe more likely than rabies.
But I do think both you and the puppy need some care.
thank you I will be taking him a vet and myself to a doctor
Glad to help and I hope everyone is ok!
