Welcome to HCM
Unprovoked infected dog bite is dangerous and if no precautionary measures and immunization
is taken then it may lead to development of Rabies and consequent hydrophobia
. Diagnosis in most cases is made on the basis of clinical history along with history of dog bite. Its very sad to say but so far there is no cure of Rabies Hydrophobia. Best you can do is prey and provide him symptomatic treatment. Recently in United States a study was done on mice and it was found that ketamine
medicine) has potential to inhibit virus. This result in introduction of induced coma
in treatment of Rabies and so far 2 patients have been saved by this treatment. The treatment is named as Milwaukee Protocol. Hope it helps you.
