On July 12, Animal Control Officer Henley Thomas prepares a quarantine document for a dog owner whose dog bit an animal technician at its veterinarian during a checkup. Thomas has verified that the dog’s rabies shot is up to date. The dog is required to stay in quarantine for 10 days. That means that the dog must not to come in contact with any people or animals during the 10 days and the dog must not leave the owner’s property. When the dog is outside, it must be leashed. After the papers are served and signed, Thomas calls the bite victim to update her on the dog’s rabies status, reassuring her that she does not need to undergo rabies treatments.
