Hi Venkatesham,
Thank you for your query,
Nothing to worry as you have completed the complete schedule of anti rabies vaccination including the anti rabies immunoglobulin.
Anti rabies vaccine on 90th day is optional, but I advise you to take that one also.
Don't get anxious by reading on news papers as the information some times may not be right completely as full timely vaccination along with wound washing and immunoglobulin will give almost 99.9 percent protection.
And there is need to avoid any food and no food restriction after dog bite.
Please kindly inform to the municipal authorities about that dog, so that the officials will take preventive measures and to catch the dog.
Hope I have answered your query.
