General & Family Physician 's  Response
yes she should consult a specialist. if your dog is vaccinated in the past 6 months then no treatment is needed. if the dog is not vaccinated, then she needs full course of treatment that involves 4 doses of intradermal tissue culture vaccine (like rabipur) on days 0, 3, 7 and 28, along with full dose of anti-rabies immunoglobulin (like rabinil), under expert supervision.

Thanks for choosing HealthcareMagic forum.
If your family dog is well vaccinated and there was no blood at the site of injury then it is OK. otherwise she might need to be vaccinated and it is best if you show the wound to her gynaecologist and consult her about vaccination.
