Veterinarians Katy Dunn and Ronnie Robertson immediately suspected rabies when they evaluated a family dog that was acting aggressively at home. The dog was euthanized, and tests confirmed that it had rabies. Three additional dogs in the home were euthanized as well, and each family member must undergo post-exposure prophylaxis therapy. "People are not getting their animals vaccinated as often as they need to," said Dr. Dunn.
