The National Health and Agricultural Quality Service (Senasa) confirmed an outbreak of palsy rabies in Tobuna, in the missionary division of San Pedro.
The confirmation was obtained after the analysis for the sample taken from an affected animal in the regional laboratory of Senasa in Candelaria.
For this reason, SENASA confirmed the preventive interpretation ordered from the index box after discovery of the disease suspicion and extended to livestock businesses within a 10-kilometer radius.
The measure involves the suspension of the slaughtering and movement of animals to the same in these areas until they implement the corresponding vaccination scheme in accordance with the standards established by Senasa.
Vaccination is mandatory in outbreaks and covers all animals from cattle, horses, pigs, goats, sheep and dogs.
Senasa recommended that producers immediately report the presence of nerve-sick animals (inside or outside the outbreak) and the detection of shelves where they reside or suspect the presence of vampires.
