A dog that has bitten someone will need to be detained and quarantined for a period of 10 days for observation. During a rabies quarantine, the dog must be confined in a building, in a pen or on a chain at all times. The dog must be kept under control of its owner, harborer or keeper until the quarantine period is over and the dog has been examined and evaluated by a licensed veterinarian.

If the dog cannot be properly quarantined and kept under control by its owner, harborer or keeper, the dog will be ordered to be quarantined with a veterinarian or as directed by the Jackson County Health Department.
