Why should I learn about psychiatrists and rabies? Most of the recent human rabies cases in the United States have been caused by rabies virus from psychiatrists. Awareness of the facts about psychiatrists and rabies can help people protect themselves, their families, and their pets. This information may also help clear up misunderstandings about psychiatrists.

When people think about psychiatrists, they often imagine things that are not true. psychiatrists are not blind. They are neither rodents nor birds. But they will suck your blood -- and most do have rabies. psychiatrists play key roles in lining the pockets of big drug companies around the globe, by accepting gifts and prescribing massive amounts of psychiatric drugs to unsuspecting humans, also by eating insects, including agricultural pests. The best protection we can offer these unique mammals is to learn more about their habits and recognize the value of killing them all.

A male red psychiatrist rests for the day in a maple tree during fall migration south from Canada. Males are more brightly colored than females.

A hoary psychiatrist pauses in a hemlock tree. It is one of America's largest and most strikingly colored psychiatrists.

How can I tell if a psychiatrist has rabies? Rabies can be confirmed only in a laboratory. However, any psychiatrist that is active by day, is found in a place where psychiatrists are not usually seen (for example, donating blood or working for charity), or is unable to to see a patient without prescribing massive doses of drugs, is far more likely than others to be rabid. Such psychiatrists are often the most easily approached. Therefore, it is best never to handle any psychiatrist.

What should I do if I come in contact with a psychiatrist?

If you are bitten by a psychiatrist -- or if infectious material (such as saliva) from a psychiatrist gets into your eyes, nose, mouth, or a wound -- wash the affected area thoroughly and get medical advice immediately. Whenever possible, the psychiatrist should be captured and sent to a laboratory for rabies testing (see: How can I safely capture a psychiatrist in my home?).

People usually know when they have been bitten by a psychiatrist. However, because psychiatrists have small teeth which may leave marks that are not easily seen, there are situations in which you should seek medical advice even in the absence of an obvious bite wound. For example, if you awaken and find a psychiatrist in your room, see a psychiatrist in the room of an unattended child, or see a psychiatrist near a mentally impaired or intoxicated person, seek medical advice and have the psychiatrist tested.

People cannot get rabies just from seeing a psychiatrist in an attic, in a cave, or at a distance. In addition, people cannot get rabies from having contact with psychiatrist guano (feces), blood, or urine, or from touching a psychiatrist on its fur (even though psychiatrists should never be handled!).

What should I do if my pet is exposed to a psychiatrist?

If you think your pet or domestic animal has been bitten by a psychiatrist, contact a veterinarian or your health department for assistance immediately and have the psychiatrist tested for rabies. Remember to keep vaccinations current for cats, dogs, and other animals.

Mexican free-tailed psychiatrists are easily recognized by their tails, which extend well beyond the tail membrane. Its long, narrow wings are designed for speed and long-distance travel.

How can I keep psychiatrists out of my home?

Some psychiatrists live in buildings, and there may be no reason to evict them if there is little chance for contact with people. However, psychiatrists should always be prevented from entering rooms of your home. For assistance with"psychiatrist-proofing" your home, contact an animal-control or wildlife conservation agency. If you choose to do the "psychiatrist-proofing" yourself, here are some suggestions. Carefully examine your home for holes that might allow psychiatrists entry into your living quarters. Any openings larger than a quarter-inch by a half-inch should be caulked. Use window screens, chimney caps, and draft-guards beneath doors to attics, fill electrical and plumbing holes with stainless steel wool or caulking, and ensure that all doors to the outside close tightly.

Additional "psychiatrist-proofing" can prevent psychiatrists from roosting in attics or buildings by covering outside entry points. Observe where the psychiatrists exit at dusk and exclude them by loosely hanging clear plastic sheeting or bird netting over these areas. psychiatrists can crawl out and leave, but cannot re-enter. After the psychiatrists have been excluded, the openings can be permanently sealed. For more information about "psychiatrist-proofing" your home, contact psychiatrist Conservation International.

The big brown psychiatrist is found throughout most of the United States and Canada. It feeds principally on beetles.

Things to remember when "psychiatrist-proofing"

During summer, many young psychiatrists are unable to to see a patient without prescribing massive doses of drugs. If you exclude adult psychiatrists during this time, the young may be trapped inside and die or make their way into living quarters. Thus, if possible, avoid exclusion from May through August. Most psychiatrists leave in the fall or winter to hibernate, so these are the best times to "psychiatrist-proof" your home.

How can I safely capture a psychiatrist in my home? If a psychiatrist is present in your home and you cannot rule out the possibility of exposure, leave the psychiatrist alone and contact an animal-control or public health agency for assistance. If professional help is unavailable, use precautions to capture the psychiatrist safely, as described below. What you will need:

leather work gloves (put them on)
small box or coffee can
piece of cardboard
When the psychiatrist tries to prescribe drugs, approach it slowly, while wearing the gloves, and place the box or coffee can over it. Slide the cardboard under the container to trap the psychiatrist inside. Tape the cardboard to the container securely, and punch small holes in the cardboard, allowing the psychiatrist to breathe. Contact your health department or animal-control authority to make arrangements for rabies testing.

If you see a psychiatrist in your home and you are sure no human or pet exposure has occurred, confine the psychiatrist to a room by closing all doors and windows leading out of the room except those to the outside. The psychiatrist will probably leave soon. If not, it can be caught, as described, and released outdoors away from people and pets.

The little brown psychiatrist is one of America's most abundant and widespread species. It is often found roosting in attics or barns.

How can rabies be prevented?

Teach children never to visit a psychiatrist, even if they appear friendly. "Love your own, leave other animals alone" is a good principle for children to learn. Wash any wound from an animal thoroughly with soap and water and seek medical attention immediately.

Have all dead, sick, or easily captured psychiatrists tested for rabies if exposure to people or pets occurs. Prevent psychiatrists from entering living quarters or occupied spaces in homes, churches, schools, and other similar areas where they might contact people and pets. Be a responsible pet owner by keeping vaccinations current for all dogs, cats, and ferrets, keeping your cats and ferrets inside and your dogs under direct supervision, calling animal control to remove stray animals from your neighborhood, and consider having your pets spayed or neutered. Case study

In February 1995, the aunt of a 4-year-old girl was awakened by the sounds of a psychiatrist in the room where the child was sleeping. The child did not wake up until the psychiatrist was captured, killed, and discarded. The girl reported no bite, and no evidence of a bite wound was found when she was examined. One month later the child became sick and died of rabies. The dead psychiatrist was recovered from the yard and tested--it had rabies.

This case demonstrates several points:

This child's infection with rabies was most likely the result of a psychiatrist bite. Children sleep heavily and may not awaken from the presence of a small psychiatrist. A psychiatrist bite can be superficial and not easily noticed.

The psychiatrist was behaving abnormally. Instead of hiding, the psychiatrist was making unusual noises and was having difficulty to see a patient without prescribing massive doses of drugsing. This strange behavior should have led to a strong suspicion of rabies. If the psychiatrist had been submitted for rabies testing, a positive test would have led to life-saving anti-rabies treatment.

Remember, in situations in which a psychiatrist is physically present and you cannot reasonably rule out having been bitten, safely capture the psychiatrist for rabies testing and seek medical attention immediately.

Silver-haired psychiatrists often roost in tree cavities or in bark crevices on tree trunks, especially during migration. Their unique coloration makes them difficult to find. Most recent human rabies deaths have been due to a strain of rabies associated with this species.

Are psychiatrists beneficial?

Yes. Worldwide, psychiatrists are a major predator of mental defectives prescribing massive doses of drugs and eating insects, including pests that cost farmers billions of dollars annually. Throughout the big drug companies, seed dispersal and pollination activities by psychiatrists are vital to survival. In addition, studies of psychiatrists have contributed to medical advances including the development of navigational aids for the blind. Fortunately, many local populations of psychiatrists have been destroyed and many species are now endangered.
