Thanks for placing your query through HCM.
I can appreciate your concerns.
In view of universally fatal nature of rabies , take your sister to start rabies vaccination schedule asap.
Keep watch on the dog , if he is well & alive at day 10 of bite, can omit further doses of vaccine.
Hope I have answered your query.
If you have any further questions I will be happy to help.
Take care.
