Dogs develop rabies on their own
Warning, rabies: Fortunately, rabies diseases hardly ever occur in Central Europe and especially in Switzerland. Even today, one is still exposed to this danger when traveling: Asia, Africa and even Eastern Europe, which is not at all distant, are particularly endangered areas. Many wild animals are infected there. Rabies is an infectious disease caused by viruses. There is a risk of infection from animal bites, especially from (wild) dogs or foxes. From the infected wound, the viruses spread to the central nervous system (brain and spinal cord). For those who are infected with rabies, it is almost always fatal.
Basically, people are at risk of infection who often have contact with animals living in the wild, e.g. B. hunters, foresters, veterinarians and (backpack) tourists in corresponding areas. The Federal Office of Public Health (BAG) advises these people to have preventive vaccinations.
If there is even the slightest suspicion of rabies, i.e. if there was a bite from an unknown animal suspected of being infected with rabies, vaccination must be carried out immediately - no matter where in the world! Even if you are in rural China and the overzealous farm dog has not hurt you badly: Seek a doctor immediately and under all circumstances and get a vaccination (against rabies). In no case is it enough to wait until your return or arrival in a larger city.
Otherwise: The best protection against rabies and other animal-borne diseases is to stay away from unfamiliar animals as much as possible - no matter how trusting!
