(A) The poundmaster shall take up and place in isolation any dog or cat, licensed or not, which in the opinion of a licensed veterinarian or the poundmaster, displays symptoms suggestive of rabies. Such isolation shall be at the dog or cat pound unless the owner of such dog or cat, with the approval of the poundmaster, arranges with a licensed veterinarian for such isolation in a private animal hospital or clinic.
(B) Any dog or cat, placed in such isolation, shall be kept strictly confined and under such observation as may be required by the poundmaster. Such isolation shall continue for at least 14 days from the date the symptoms suggestive of rabies were first observed. Such isolation may be continued for a longer period than 14 days if, in the opinion of any licensed veterinarian or the poundmaster, such longer period is necessary.
(C) At the expiration of such 14 days or longer period, the dog or cat shall be released upon payment of proper fees if, in the opinion of any licensed veterinarian or the poundmaster, such dog or cat does not have rabies.
