The Kenton-Hardin Health Department would like to remind residents to protect themselves from the ever-present threat of rabies by following these precautions:

·     Do not feed, touch or adopt wild animals and be cautious around stray cats  and dogs.
·     Teach children to leave wildlife alone and be sure that your child knows to tell you if an animal bites or scratches them.
·     Have your pet cats, dogs, and ferrets vaccinated for rabies and keep their vaccinations current.
·     Keep trash can lids secure. Open containers can attract wildlife.
·     Feed pets indoors. Never leave food outdoors that can attract wildlife.
·     Report any bite incidents to your local health department and call your doctor for medical advice.


“Do not touch, handle or play with wildlife.  Although they may appear to be cute, friendly animals, wildlife should be considered dangerous” says Patt Sweeney Mahoning County health commissioner.  “To minimize attracting wildlife to your property, remember to keep all pet food inside or in closed containers.”

 Rabies is a fatal viral zoonosis and a serious public health threat. All mammals, such as raccoons, skunks, foxes and bats, are believed susceptible to the disease. Rabies is transmitted when the virus is introduced into bite wounds, open cuts in skin, or onto mucous membranes from saliva.

If you are involved in a pet or human exposure, please contact your local health department for surveillance purposes:Kenton-Hardin Health Department
