Canine rabies is endemic in the country, and the exposure through animal bites is responsible for almost all human rabies in the Philippines. Animal rabies is prevalent in almost all parts of the country except in some island provinces and municipalities. Rabies among animals has been limited to domesticated animals. In 2008, 971 animal rabies cases were reported, 98 % of which were dogs (Deray 2009). Rabies situation in Thailand has been improving both in animals and humans during the past decade.
Rabies epizootics associated with dogs were not reported until the early eighteenth century, but later on dogs remained the primary source of rabies in the USA until the mid-twentieth century. Subsequently, with the control of canine rabies, the epidemiology of rabies in the USA shifted to primary circulation and maintenance in wildlife species (Blanton et al. 2011). Over the last 100 years, the situation of rabies in the USA has changed dramatically. The number of rabies-related human deaths in the USA has declined from more than 100 annually at the turn of the century to one or two per year in the 1990s, largely due to the availability and success of modern prophylaxis measures.
Red foxes (Vulpes vulpes), grey foxes (Urocyon cinereoargenteus), coyotes (Canis latrans), and arctic foxes (Alopex lagopus) exist in the Americas. Wildlife rabies is sporadically transmitted to domestic animals and to humans (Rabies Bulletin Europe 2012). More dangerously, in some parts of the world, the sylvatic cycle operates simultaneously with the urban cycle, making the rabies epidemiology more complex. In India, disease transmission is known to involve domestic animals (urban cycle) as well as wild animals (sylvatic cycle), the former being a more common source.
