Clinicians treating patients with exposure to animals in Clark, Floyd and Harrison counties should
follow the below recommendations.

Recommendations for treatment have not changed for exposures in other geographic areas. However, if concerned, clinicians are encouraged to reach out to their
local health department or IDOH.

For patients with high-risk exposure to dogs or cats in Clark, Floyd and Harrison counties:

*   Consider rabies post-exposure prophylaxis (rPEP) for patients with high-risk exposures to dogs
or cats in Clark, Floyd, and Harrison counties if the animal cannot be quarantined or tested for
rabies, especially if the bite was unprovoked, the animal appeared ill, or the animal was behaving
abnormally.
*   IDOH is working with the Indiana Department of Natural Resources to conduct surveillance to
determine the extent to which skunk variant rabies is circulating in the area, beginning with
Clark, Floyd and Harrison counties.

For patients with dog or cat bite exposures in other Indiana counties:

*   IDOH does not have sufficient evidence to alter public health recommendations for healthcare
providers treating patients with exposures in other Indiana counties where most dog and cat bites
should continue to be considered low-risk exposures, especially if
the bite was provoked and the animal appeared healthy and was behaving normally
