Abstract


Rabies is a viral encephalomyelitis pathology that affects all kind of warm-blooded animals. While in America the main rabies reservoir is represented by the bat, in Europe rabies in maintained in wildlife by foxes which are the main source of the disease. In Europe, due to oral vaccination campaign in foxes which takes part every year, it is believed that in some years many European countries will be free of the disease. The study presents the efficiency of the oral vaccines in foxes by comparing the number of positive rabies cases before and after the use of baits vaccines. The research is made in Bistrita-Nasaud county between 2000 and 2017 and there were tested both domestic and wild animals.
