Any veterinarian or other person in charge of an animal affected or presumably affected with any disease communicable to human beings shall immediately notify the health officer. Whenever there is reason to believe that an animal has rabies, the animals and all other animals bitten by it shall be securely confined by the owner or person in charge for that time as is necessary to determine whether the disease exists. Every animal which has rabies shall be disposed of as directed by the health officer.
