Mild Dog bite this morning, Do I need to consult a doctor ?

Today i kicked a sleeping dog unknowingly. It turned up suddenly and bite my leg mildly. I was wearing a pant that time. I checked my leg but there was no bite mark and scratches or bleeding . After 30 minutes or so, i washed my leg with soap. Do I need to consult a doctor ? The dog was not furious. It was very calm after few barking.

Hi well come to Hcm.
Even if there is a very remote chances of bite one must not neglect it. Rabies is
non curable fatal disease. you have to consult your Doctor. He may advise you
only three injection for prevention. Thanks
