There are two forms of rabies that may appear in dogs – "dumb rabies" and "furious rabies". When dumb rabies occurs, muscular paralysis takes over the dog. You'll notice changes in the sound of the bark, breathing difficulties, excessive drooling, and an inability to drink due to the jaw hanging open. With furious rabies, dogs will begin to act mad. They begin to roam and act aggressively towards people, other animals, and even inanimate objects.
There is no cure for rabies once the symptoms show. Dogs will usually die within two to ten days.
