After dog bite
- If pet dog and have had his rabies vaccination you need no rabies vaccination. But watch to dog for 10 days for signs of rabidness. If you had not your TT immunization in last 6 months plz have it.
- If Rabid Dog bite - Inj Rabipur in 5 doses you must taken and inj TT if not taken in last 6 months.
Have a Healthful Day..
