thanks for choosing health care majic.I think you are worried about fever and wants to know that this fever is because of rabies which might have occurred due to puppy bite.see the symptoms looks like viral infection.and as you said the throat is i think there is no reason for worry.Please vaccinate your puppy for anti rabies vaccine as per the recommended schedule.Still if there are some fresh big bites see your doctor.
