Other infections including tetanus are also manifested within few months to year following the infection.
Now when it is almost 20 years past the bite
there is no serious complications expected.
So you need not be worried.
Yes, the incubation period varies for rabies infection
however there are no significant reports of late manifestation after 20 years of dog bite.
So you need not panic.
ok..thanks a lot...but in any case if I take injections now..will that be any help now
The chance of you getting infection now is extremely low.
So there is no point in taking them now.
Have you followed?
Do you have any more questions?
ok..thanks a lot..i hope nothing will happen due to this
Do not be worried.
worries and apprehension will cause you more problems than a 20 year old dog bite.
Thanks for consulting me.
Bye for now.
