A total of 1820 dogs and 332 cats that appeared ill or had bitten humans or animals were observed for ⩾10 days. Of these, 957 dogs and 94 cats that were confirmed to be rabid survived <10 days after admission to our institution. This study supports current recommendations that dogs and cats that are suspected of being rabid should be euthanized and examined or, if this is inappropriate, confined and observed for 10 days.
