Rabies risks in terrestrial animals, by country

 

No risk countries: no indigenous rabies in terrestrial animals
Low risk countries:  rabies occurs in wild animals but not in companion animals
High risk countries: rabies occurs in wild and companion animals (or there are no data to prove otherwise)

Bats may carry rabies-like viruses in countries which are declared rabies-free in terrestrial animals. Therefore exposure to bats or their secretions should be considered as a potential rabies risk wherever in the world this has occurred.
