The confirmation was obtained after the analysis of the sample taken from the affected animal at the Senasa Regional Laboratory in Candelaria, and César Berger, responsible for the animal husbandry area of the Ministry of Agriculture, spoke with the program Acá te lo We rely on radioactive.
"Parasitic rabies is a viral disease that is transmitted from a virus by a type of bat that feeds on the blood of the animals and is so named because of the type of symptoms it presents." All warm-blooded animals are susceptible to these types of viruses and should therefore we act quickly and effectively against this disease, "he said.
He also pointed out that the Province of Missions is considered an endemic area, "in the red earth we have between 2 or 3 cases a year, we have to start there, the fury is established in missions and will continue to be, but the good thing is that there are methods to prevention, and that is where we have to confront the producers' awareness of vaccination, which is not mandatory, but it is a matter of public health and they should include it in the vaccination schedule. "
"Bats usually feed on cattle and saliva, the virus enters the bloodstream and begins to affect the nervous system and is very fatal," he warned.
On the other hand, although there are outbreaks that are not of great importance, "outbreaks that are not large, we have not had much mortality." Since the animal presents symptoms, it is presented to a veterinarian and then called. To take the sample, make a sanitary fence and enter the vaccine free of charge, it is not a disease that devastates, but must be stopped by periphery and focus, "he concludes.
