The Rabies Surveillance program works closely with the Epidemiology Department, Broward County and Municipal Animal Care and Control offices to prevent the spread of rabies in the domestic pet population and in humans. Suspected rabid animals are quarantined and/or tested to determine if the animal may have transmitted rabies to a human or pet through a bite or scratch.  The Florida Department of Health in Broward County also consults with patients, physicians, and veterinarians regarding the current recommendations for treating a rabies exposure.
