belongs to WHO Category II and needs post exposure prophylaxis for Rabies
in form of immediate vaccination
.[Do remember that if its not just nibbling or scratch without bleeding and a real bite then the injury will fall into WHO Category III and will need post exposure prophylaxis in form of immediate vaccination + Human Rabies Immunoglobulin] Depending on vaccine
type, you will need post exposure prophylaxis [irrespective of whether your puppy is diseased or not] in form of intramuscular doses of 0.5 ml or 1ml as 4 to 5 doses over 4 weeks.
So visit your nearest hospital and get the vaccination to get relief from the worry you are having.Dont wait for your puppy to get diagnosed with Rabies[ You'll need prophylaxis evenif your puppy is normal]
Here I would like to mention the CDC guideline for post exposure prophylaxis for nonimmunised individuals ---
step 1] Wound cleansing - with soap & water liberally for 15 mins , providone Iodine
irrigation, never stitch the wound.
step2] Human Rabies Immunoglobulin - Infiltrate around the wound. Any remaining part of immunoglobulin to be given i.m. at site distant from vaccine administration
step3] Vaccine - HDCV or PCECV 1ml i.m.[deltoid] on days 0,3,7,14 .
Please stay in touch with your nearest medical centre for any emergency ...
