Abstract:

A study was carried out to know the incidence of rabies in pup mortality below 6 months of age at the department of Veterinary Pathology. Eleven pups were recorded as rabies during the one year period. Six were not vaccinated, vaccination history was not known in four pups and post bite vaccination was done in one pup. All except one (Labrador retriever) were partially owned non-descript pups. One to nine days duration of illness, hypersalivation, hyperaesthesia, aggressive behaviour, staggering gait and not responding to owner's call, dropped jaw, copper coloured tongue and biting inanimate objects were found. Two showed pulpy brain. In WMVG staining, nine impressions revealed Negri bodies. On histopathology, brain revealed degeneration and perivascular cuffing in six pups. Intracytoplasmic inclusions were observed in four brains.
