hello. First of all you have to check the vaccination status of your dog. If it is vaccinated , then you can carry on your routine schedule of anti rabies vaccine for first 3 doses on 0, 3 and 7 days. If dog is not vaccinated, then you should complete whole course of vaccination on 0,3,7,14,28 and 90 days. The 0 day here is preferably the day of dog bite, but if you are late then its better than never. You should surely complete the schedule and keep the watch on your dog for 10 days whether it is turning rabid or not. Thanks
