Whether you are heading out to the mountains or cleaning the basement, you may wonder how you can protect yourself and your family from diseases like rabies, hantavirus, West Nile Virus, and tick-borne diseases. We answer such questions and get testing done for certain dead corvid birds, bats, and some other wild animals suspected of carrying diseases that can affect you.
We team up with communicable disease nurses who answer your personal health questions related to animals, make sure you get the care you need and help get prevention information out to the community.
Call the communicable disease nurse at 360-385-9400 if you are concerned about potential exposure from a bat or other animal.
Call us at 360-385-9444 for other non-urgent animal questions. Or visit the Washington State Department of Health's website for rabies information.
