Animal Bites

Indiana State Department of Health (ISDH) wants you to submit any animal bites within 24 hours. Cats, Dogs, tame or not, and wild animals. This can be done by animal control, ER physicians, or the police department.

The form can be printed off, filled out, and faxed/mailed or on a visit to the Clinton County Health Department, 1234 Rossville Ave, Frankfort, IN 46041, Attn: Dana Longnecker, RN. Fax # (765) 659-6387. Although dogs, cats, ferrets will not usually require rabies post-exposure prophylaxis, it is important to report all bites. Higher risk animals may require rabies immunoglobulin and rabies vaccine given on the day of the rabies exposure, and then a dose of vaccine given again on days 3, 7, and 14 at your nearest hospital ER. Here at the Health Department, we monitor the Animal Bite reports assessing your need for the rabies vaccine. Rabies is almost always fatal without the rabies PEP.
