Contracting rabies does not sound fun. After being infected with rabies the victim will feel flu-like symptoms after about 2 to 12 weeks from being bitten. Soon after the flu-like symptoms begin the victim will begin showing signs of anxiety, confusion, agitation and all sorts of really uncool things. Eventually these symptoms progress into complete and utter delirium and then finally death. In these late stages of the disease the very sight of liquids will send the victim into sheer uncontrollable panic. Much like the panic my brother Steve suffers when the bar he is at stops serving liquids. Almost no untreated rabies victim has ever lived. The very few who have survived have been left severely brain damaged. So to recap rabies makes you feel ill, then makes you completely lose your mind in sheer terror and then you die. Offhand I can not think of too many things that would be worse than a rabies infestation. Let us thank our dear friend Mr. Louis Pasteur for coming up with the vaccine to this terrible disease many years before any of us were born. Could you imagine a time before the vaccine when people who suffered bites from a rabid dog were left to die a horribly excruciating death? Let us all take a moment to marvel at and thank Pasteur and modern medicine in general.
One of the ways to contract rabies is being bitten by a rabid dog. It is pretty rare to find a dog with rabies these days and I'm not sure why you would want to go looking for one but the best way to avoid being bit by a rabid dog is to keep your arms and legs out of it's mouth. A good way to do that is to make sure no rabid dog gets close enough to do so. Let's forget about rabid dogs for a moment and just try and not get bit by any dogs. There are plenty of canines out there capable of making us forget all about relatively ancient diseases and more about the gaping open wounds they have just left us with, if we are so obliged.
Electronic dog repellers are a great way to keep the distance between yourself and a dog you do not know and have no desire to get familiar with. There are two ways this beautiful little handheld device works. One is the discomforting but not harmful high frequency sound (20,000Hz-25,000Hz), audible to dogs but not to humans. And, the second is a super bright LED flashing strobe that temporarily blinds and confuses the dog. Both could come in very handy in some circumstances.
So if you live in an area where there are some questionable canines about you should seriously consider obtaining an electronic dog repeller.
