Species: Dog
Breed: shitzu

does dog have rabbies when they were born?




Online vet, Dr. Marie

Dr. Marie replied:

Dog cannot be born with rabies. Rabies is transmitted from one animal to another by a bite.

If a dog has rabies they will die within 10 days of being infected. So, if a mother dog had rabies when she was pregnant the pregnancy would not likely survive.
