Responding to questions about rabies and knowing what to do with rabies exposure cases are common events regardless of your type of practice. However, the answers to those questions are sometimes not as straightforward as we would like. This discussion, led by Wisconsin rabies expert Dr. Yvonne Bellay, will answer some of the most common questions that arise in daily practice and help navigate the complexities of rabies management in our state.


Dr. Yvonne Bellay manages animal welfare programs for the Wisconsin Department of Agriculture, Trade, and Consumer Protection, where she is also an epidemiologist. She oversees the department's training and certification of local humane officers, as well as its dog seller and rabies control programs. In addition, Dr. Bellay deals with zoonotic disease and public health issues, serving as the department's liaison with state and local public health departments. Dr. Bellay also acts as a resource to local authorities in investigating and resolving local animal welfare complaints.
