Specializes in Infectious Disease

It depends on location of the bite or other exposure, becauset it takes time for the rabies virus to ascend through the nerves to the brain. Exposure on the hand or foot can take a couple of weeks; on the face it can be only a few days. If you've had a known or suspected exposure, don't take chances: contact your doctor or the local or state health department ASAP.
