Dear Sir/Madam,
Any dog bite should not be taken lightly. You have to be aware of behavior of your puppy and have information whether puppy goes out? If any recent changes in his activities- like drowsiness, restlessness, salivation etc. We would also like to know when your child was bitten. Please write detail of vaccination to puppy.
In any case, it will be better to consult a local Pediatrician immediately to prevent delay in diagnosis( for puppy) and treatment for your child.
With regards,
Dr Kuldeep
