The health department's environmental section receives animal bite reports from the public and animal control agencies within the county.

When necessary animals involved in bite cases are placed under quarantine or specimens are submitted through the environmental section to Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services Virology lab for rabies testing.

We educate animal bite victims regarding the risk of rabies and coordinate with medical professionals regarding post exposure treatment.
