If the dog is vaccinated and remains normal for say fifteen days after bite then chances for hydrophobia
are minimum. More so if skin is perfectly intact then it is safe . You have taken first aid
measure. In cases of doubt we recommend to use anti rabies injections. In your case it appears to be viral in origin as you are having post nasal drip
also. Proper rest saline gargles antipyretic
medicines will cure. In herbal medicines use of basil leaf and pepper or ginger and honey with hot water offer good relief. Paracetamol
can be taken if fever persists.
