Also tell within what period of time immunoglobulin should be injected?
If you have taken Vaxirab continue the same as per schedule If possible.Pl observe the dogto see whether it has got rabies or not. There is no need to take immunoglobulin.Get the site of bite cleaned and dressing done evryday itill it becomes dry.
