  • Have your dogs been vaccinated for rabies? If not, then yes, they could and I would take the dead possum to your vet to be tested. If yes, I would still call the vet because I don't know if they would need any type of booster shot or if the vaccine is good enough.

  • What time of day did they kill the possum? If it was during the day no matter what put the carcass in a bag and take it and the dogs in. If it was killed at night I would see if you do need a booster or like above if the vaccine is good enough.
