Brief Answer: No,you don't need to avoid non-veg food. Detailed Answer: Hello XXXX Thanks for writing to us No,you don't need to avoid non-veg food.You can take what ever you like,there is no food restriction. But i have doubt about dose schedule of antirabies vaccine.It should be on days 0,3,7,14 and 28th day counting from first day of bite.Day 0 is counted as day of bite. All the doses are not given with gap of 3 days.You need to re-confrm the dose schedule. Get well soon. Hope i have answered your query. Further queries are most welcome. Take Care Dr.Indu XXXXXXX
