    how much is the fluorescent rabies antibody test ? is it available here in the Philippines? Because i was bitten by a dog when i was a child, three times. And i don’t remember anything from the first bite, all i know is I was bitten by a dog which is owned by someone here in our subdivision and i hide it from my mother. the second one is from a puppy and it was just like a prick of a needle and i let the blood flow out of my finger and wash and wash and wash it… the third one is cause by my own dog when he was eating, the bite is in my left arm, and it didn’t bleed. I didn’t take any vaccine, now I’m still thinking if i have a rabies because it’s incubation period is 10days-15years and i am just 19 right now. What do you think guys do i have the virus? Please email me here: [email protected] (FS, YM, or Mail)

It is transmitted to other animals and humans through close contact with saliva from infected animals (i.e. bites, scratches, licks on broken skin and mucous membranes). Once symptoms of the disease develop, rabies is fatal to both animals and humans. [...]
