Should I be concerned?
 
We've had a spate of rabid skunk incidents within a 3-9 mile radius of here since spring. One of my dogs was out in the woods somewhere all night, and when it came in this morning to eat, it stunk like it took a bath in polecat perfume. It may have licked my daughter's face before I got it in the tub.

It hit me a little later that the dog may have bitten or got bit by a rabid skunk last night or this morning. It's current on her rabies vaccination-due for its next series of shots in September.

Could the dog have infected my daughter if it had rabid skunk saliva on its tongue when it licked my daughter's eyes, nose or mouth? I know it's a far-fetched notion, but you don't f.ck around with the hydrophoby.

On edit: I guess what I need to know is whether my dog's saliva can serve as a medium wherein the rabies virus can survive.

"you don't f*ck around with the hydrophoby."

I know it's not funny, but made me crack a smile; that's got to be the understatement of the year.

Hope all comes out best!

It gave me a grin, too. Levity can be found in the darkest of places if you know where to look, or are willing to bring it with you.

I believe Dusty is GTG.

My Team Sargent handed me an 18" bolt cutter and said as junior medic it was my job to carry it. He also said if anybody needed a Procaine PCN shot, that I should just pull that out instead. It was better than the generator I guess...

ROT: When in doubt...get it checked out.

I, too, thought, "Don't open the corn crib, Travis!" when I read the first post. Must be a generational thing. ;)
