"A rabies temporary control zone will run from January 17 to February 16 in a radius around the Moo 4 village in Tambon Chalong" Meaning capturing and killing any stray dogs on sight.

The authorities are so thick, there are no vacines available on Phuket.

The whole tretment course costs about 80,000.00 Baht for humans.

Ha ha ha, or 555.

PHUKET:-- A rabies quarantine zone has been established across a large section of Phuket as officials work alongside staffers from the Soi Dog Foundation to ensure against an outbreak of rabies.

 

The move follows confirmation that one dog in Moo 4 Chalong had died of the disease.

 

The zone boundaries stretch from Baan Ketho in Moo 7, Kathu in the north, to Baan Bang Khonthi in Moo 5, Rawai, in the south and from Baan Borrae in Moo 6, Wichit in the east to Wat Suwankhirikhet (Wat Karon) in Moo 1, Karon on Phuket’s southern west coast.

A month long round up and extermination exercise will remove about 1/3rd of the threat............but its a start............dog's or cat's with no collar with rabies tag, off to the incinerator you go.

80,000 baht to treat a bite victim!  You are a lying fool!

People who did not get vaccinated before will need a Rabies Immune Globulin (RIG) treatment for which the cost depends on your bodyweight. Costs will be north of 50,000 baht for an average person. WebMD gives wholesale prices in the US of around $3500 (THB 110,000) for an adult between 134 and 166lbs (HyperRab and Imogam).

 

HOw much do you think it will cost?

Appalling news.

 

Phuket has been rabies free for donkeys' years - so to learn this a.m. that a rabid dog has been found (and that I and my dogs are either in the 'quarantine' zone, or extremely close to it) is horrifying :sad:.

 

Many hours after learning this news, I am still extremely stressed at both the news, and the effect this will have on the lives of my dogs - for at least a month :sad:.

It costs around 3 to 4000 baht for the set of injections at a Thai government hospital.

I wouldn't go to America for any medical treatment. As far as health care is concerned that country is still in the dark ages, where health care is only for the rich, and any plan designed to bring affordable care to the population is opposed by nearly all including those it would most help.

Why would you bring up US costs in a discussion about Thailand?

My research indicates it costs anywhere between nil and about 5000 baht depending on who they are and where they get treated.

Immune Globulin direct to the wound site 12000B at the Bangkok Samui with follow up Rabipur jabs on days 1,3,7,14 & 28 at approx 600B a time whilst I was still in LOS. If I could easily get one by just walking into a small surgery by the pier on Koh Tao, then I think Phuket would be no problem? TBH it was easier to get a jab in Koh Tao than it was to get the 14 & 28 day ones when I was back in the UK!

Its a picture of a door stop, going by the above two posters statements we can definitely consider it their intellectual equal.
