Animal Bite Report Form

If a report was not filled out in the ER or physician's office, print this form out, fill it in, and fax the first page only to 812-738-4292.  

REPORT ANIMAL BITES!   According to Indiana Law, all animal bites are to be reported to the local Health Department.  If you are bitten by any animal, whether a pet, stray, or wild animal:

  • REPORT THE INCIDENT  by calling (812) 738-3237.   

  • The biting animal must be quarantined for 10 days (this can be done at the animal's home) and checked for annual rabies vaccines.  

  • According to State law, any dog, cat, or ferret 3 months of age or older must be vaccinated against rabies with an annual or triennial rabies vaccine by a licensed veterinarian.   

  • If the animal has not had its rabies shot, the owner will be given 10 additional days to get it.

  • Dr. Randall Benham from Cornerstone Animal Clinic in Irvington, KY, offers rabies shots the first Saturday of every month at Tractor Supply in Corydon, 9 am to noon!  Cost of rabies shot: $10.  Call 812-734-0296 if you have further questions.  

  • Wild animals or strays may be tested for rabies if necessary.
