Notas: Rabies is a viral infectious disease caused by Lyssaviruses. It is a zoonotic disease characterized by encephalomyelitis that leads affected animals to death in most cases presenting clinical signs. Its distribution is global, and despite the actual incidence in human species is yet unknown, WHO estimates that 55,000 deaths occur each year, mainly in developing countries. Spain is free of terrestrial rabies since 1978. However, several imported dog rabies (from Morocco) and nearly 20 bat rabies cases have been diagnosed since that date. Taking into account these epidemiological data and the geographical location between Europe and endemic countries, it results necessary to maximize control and prevention measures. The aim of this study was to provide actual data concerning vaccination coverage in 17 dogs from a shelter in Movera (Zaragoza) by preliminary study about antibody titers against rabies. An indirect-ELISA established by OIE was applied on all sera in order to determine the rate of seroconversion in animals analyzed. Out of the 17 samples tested,23.5 % and 5.9 % presented antibody titers equal or higher than 0.5UI/ml, respectively. These results indicate an acceptable level of protection according to the OIE. The remaining samples,70.6 % did not show titles with protection levels (they were lower than 0.5 IU/ ml).
