• Stamford, Connecticut Issues Rabies Warning

”The City of Stamford Department of Health and Social Services is advising residents to follow these guidelines...to prevent rabies from being transmitted to themselves or their pets.

"Here are some signs that should make you suspicious of the health of any animal: aggressive acting; has paralysis; bites at everything if excited; has an increase of saliva and/or drooling; has difficulty moving, has unusual vocalizations and appears sick overall.

"If you get bitten by an animal wash the bite wounds thoroughly with soap and water as soon as soon as possible. Consult a physician as soon as possible.

"...animal proof your home and yard. Make sure all garbage containers have tight fitting lids and do not leave pet food or water outside.
