Are you sure that your pet is fully immunised. Even after full immunisation it is not necessary for every one to develop full protective immunity as it can be suggested by serum level of antibodies only.
There are not any side effects of rabies vaccination and it gives long term immunity so it is better to take the three initial dosage of vaccine and till then observe the pet.
Are you asking for non veg food? If yes then off course you can take non veg without any fear.

Thanks for your query,
As you have been bitten by dog on chin which is considered as danger area as it is near to brain, so i strongly suggest you to complete your vaccination as per schedule that is 0,3,7,14,28. Rabies is a fatal disease so you should not take any chance.
You will be fine
Take care,God bless.
