Animal Bites

The Communicable Disease Unit works with local Animal Control agencies to ensure that either the animal(s) and/or human(s) involved with an animal bite incident were not exposed to rabies.

Animal bite incidents can range from an actual physical bite or a potential exposure to a rabid animal, such as a bat being found in a room where individuals were sleeping. The Communicable Disease Unit will follow-up with individual(s) who are bitten or exposed to determine if treatment is needed and discuss appropriate next steps.

To report an animal bite or exposure during regular business hours, please call 248-858-1286. If you are bitten or exposed after hours and need immediate assistance, please call 248-858-0931.
