The Health Department can submit bats or other animals for laboratory testing for rabies. There is a fee for submitting the animal to pay for testing and shipping charges.
If you have a bat in your living quarters and there may be human or pet exposure to the bat, please seek medical advice immediately. During regular business hours, please contact our department regarding information on how to submit bat for rabies testing. The bat (or other animal) should be double-bagged and placed in a refrigerated location until it is able to be brought to the Health Department. NO LIVE ANIMALS will be accepted.
