Rabid Dog at Yellowknife SPCA

A Cambridge Bay male husky cross dog, named Kit, has tested positive for rabies.  A picture of the dog can be seen above.

The dog was held at Yellowknife SPCA from March 11th to March 14th. It was held in a cage outside the building for a time.

As a result, a public health advisory was released advising anyone who may have been in contact with the dog’s saliva between March 10th and 14th to call Environment Health at (867) 767-9066 extension 49262 to have a risk assessment done to determine if you need treatment for rabies exposure.

The dog had developed signs and symptoms of rabies before being euthanized and tested.
