How is rabies diagnosed?

Your doctor or other health professional will diagnose rabies by observing the clinical signs and by performing specific tests on samples of your blood, skin, saliva or spinal fluid. Tests on the biting animal's brain tissue if it has been euthanized can also help confirm or rule out rabies.
