RABIES CLINICAL SIGNS


The clinical course is classically described as three, often overlapping phases:


(1) the prodromal period;

(2) the excitative or 'furious' stage;

(3) the paralytic or 'dumb' phase.




However, not all animals progress through all these stages and the presentation can be quite variable.
