Rabies Main Page

This seems redundant and could be worded better: 

Rabies is Preventable. Avoid contact with wild animals and keep pets and animals up to date on rabies vaccines. If treatment is not given, rabies is fatal. There is no treatment once an animal or human shows symptoms. Rabies is 100% preventable but once a human or animal shows symptoms, it is 100% fatal. 

Exposure to rabies can be treated in humans within 7 days of exposure. Pets and other domestic animals can be protected from getting this disease through vaccination, but there is no effective post-exposure treatment for unvaccinated animals. Rabies is 100% preventable but once a human or animal shows symptoms, it is 100% fatal. 

There is an effective treatment for humans that needs to be administered soon after an exposure to prevent rabies.
