If u have watched the dog for 10 days after the bite ,and its healthy or it is vaccinated, then no need of the 5th dose. But if u dont know the status of the dog then u should complete all the 5 doses.Side effects are very rare and allergic reactions like itching ,skin rashes can occur as soon as the inj is given at the first inj itself.So relax and get him the 5th dose as well.
