rabies virus and tetanus bacteria

Post by hesam » Mon Dec 02, 2013 2:23 pm

Can a rabies virus or tetanus bacteria survive inactively in a dog's saliva that is vaccinated against rabies?
If yes how long?

I don't see why couldn't tetanus bacteria survive in dog vaccinated against rabies. However, the virus would be probably eliminated by dog's blood cells.

Cis or trans? That's what matters.

Rabies virus slowly travel through peripheral nervous system from the site of bite to brain. It will take usually some week. When it reaches brain virus multiply rapidly, from brain it enters salivary glands. In vaccinated dog virus never reaches the brain. So no virus in the saliva.
