I got scratched by a stray cat last night and the scratch bled. Do I need to worry about contracting rabies?
Monitor the cat for any signs of rabies. Rabies is uncommonly transmitted by cats. But still there is a minor chance. If you think that had rabies then get rabies vaccine as soon as possible.

Hi dr. Samuel i would like to ask if a 1 scratch of a dog is harmful? Do i need to get anti rabies?
Good evening. The dog scratch is normally not harmful. If they bite and there is some form of bleeding, then that is harmful. Causes rabies spreads through the saliva. I hope the dog is immunized against rabies. If it s a street dog, you need to watch him over next few days. But if it is a superficial scratch, just clean it with an antiseptic soap. You need not be too worried about it
