Thanks for the query.
I understand your concern and will try to help you.
There are three reasons by which I can say that you are not suffering from rabies.
1st your dog has been vaccinated with rabies vaccine
2nd you also have been vaccinated with rabies vaccine
3rd the earliest symptoms of rabies mimic flu symptoms
 These signs and symptoms include headache, fever, sore throat or feeling exhausted or tired a lot. As the rabies virus starts to head to the brain the affected person will act confused, nervous, disoriented or upset.
Your symptoms of excess saliva from mouth and swelling of tongue is due to the tongue bite and nothing else.Wait for couple of days,you shall be alright.
I hope to have answered your query however you may revert to me for any further query.
Thanks and best of luck.

Your BMD report is not there but still I can say that your VIT D levels are low and the treatment recommended to you by your orthopedic is absolutely correct.
Start the treatment and don't worry.
