Brief Answer: relax. Detailed Answer: Hi. Thanks for your query. As I can see from picture there is blood oozing from wound. I suggest you to wash in thoroughly with water for 15minutes. Get yourself examined by doctor as antirabies vaccination is to be taken as per schedule. Day 0,3,7,14 and 28. Watch dog for 10 days and in case dog remains healthy last two doses are not necessary. Rabies is a fatal disease so no chance should be taken. Hope I have answered your query. Wishing you good health God bless..
