Black's Veterinary Dictionary
Rowman & Littlefield, 1998 - Veterinary medicine - 595 pages
This encyclopaedic dictionary offers practical help and reference material to all veterinary surgeons and nurses, students and journalists. Entries define and describe bacteria, viruses, carriers and diseases; they offer causes, diagnoses, signs and treatment (including first aid), pointing out the variations in the nature of a disease when it occurs in different animals, and taking account of international scientific research observations and findings. The dictionary has been extensively revised, and many entries have been rewritten since the 18th edition to reflect the numerous changes in legislation and in veterinary practice, advances in medicine and treatment, and patterns in animal husbandry and pet ownership.

The rabies info is not incorrect. Dogs will die within 10 days of showing symptoms, but the dog can still have rabies for several weeks, even months without showing signs. That is called the incubation period, which is all correctly explained in the book.
