Rabies Information for Medical Providers

Photo of medical documentsInformation for medical providers

Please help the San Mateo County Health System Communicable Disease Control Program by filling out and submitting an animal bite report form every time you provide care to an individual who has been bitten by an animal. The form can be found at http://smchealth.org/animalbite. Please fax the form to the Peninsula Humane Society and SPCA at 650-685-0102.

If you have questions or need more information regarding rabies or the management of animal bites, please call 650-573-2346. Whether PEP is indicated or not should be based on the type of animal involved, its health and behavior, the type and circumstances of the exposure and the availability of the animal for diagnostic testing or observation, a usually complex situation that requires evaluation on a case by case basis.
