(9/1/2013)

Tempo.co confirms that that a new case of rabies has been confirmed in another  dog in rabies. While most dogs affected by rabies to date have been Balinese breeds, the most recent dog to be infected is a Pekingese.

 
The confirmation of rabies came from a Gianyar Animal Health official, I Gusti Ngurah Dibya Presata, who confirmed the results of a BB-vet test showing the diseases on Thursday, August 29, 2013.
 
The latest case originates from a report from a resident of Banjar Dlod Tangluk, Wayan Darmaja (43), who was bitten by the Pekingese dog he purchased from a roadside dog traders  at the Sukawati Market. The 8-month-old dog was purchased on August 12, 2013, the same date the animal bit its new owner.  A short time later, the dog displayed clinical symptoms of rabies by mindlessly attacking objects in close proximity and becoming adverse to all light.
 
A day after being bitten, Wayan Darmaja obtained anti-rabies vaccine from a community health center (Puskesmas) following which the dog was discovered dead in its cage. A sample of brain tissue from the dog was tested confirming the presence of the rabies virus. 
 
The Gianyar Animal Health Department is still trying to trace down the original owner of the dog in order to determine the diseases’ genesis. Health officials are suspicious due to the fact that the dog with a normal value of Rp. 2.5 million (US$250) was sold to its new owner for only Rp. 50,000 (US$5).
 
As a response to the latest confirmed case of rabies in Gianyar, officials immediately vaccinated 16 dogs and eliminated a further 14 feral street dogs roaming near the market. 
 
The Animal Health Department has renewed a call on the public stop the illegal movement of animals in and out of the province as a necessary step to prevent the further spread of rabies.
 
Gianyar has also recorded a rabies case in Payangan in July when a dog that bit five people was eventually shown to be suffering from rabies.
