Rabies is very serious and can make someone very sick —
it is important to see a doctor if you are bitten by an animal,
both domestic and wild. This is especially important if a
person is bitten by a wild animal, such as a raccoon or a bat.

An animal infected with rabies carries the virus in its saliva, so
if it bites somebody the virus has a way into the person’s body.
It’s possible to get rabies from an animal scratch, too. People
sometimes describe animals that have rabies as “foaming at
the mouth.” This happens because the animal’s nerves no
longer work properly and it can’t swallow its own saliva.
