Get Your Dog Care Questions Answered by Experts
Hello, JACustomer. I have been a Veterinary Nurse for over 15 years and would be happy to help you today. I'm reviewing your question right now.
What interaction did the fox have with Toast?
It's doubtful that Toast has encountered a risky situation here if the fox was dead. However, if you know that foxes are coyotes are a problem on your property you absolutely must keep his rabies vaccine up to date. Not doing so not only puts Toast at risk, but also puts your family at risk if he might acquire rabies. There is a 3 year vaccine available, if you prefer to avoid annual vaccines.I doubt much can be done with his body if he's been dead this long, even rabies testing they'd like to have happen within 24 hours of death and without the body being frozen. You may find come tomorrow that they suggest disposing of the body instead of testing.
