Is there rabies nail of dog because she scratch my legs
Hi No. It's not in nails
 
Pet dog nail scratch with a little bleeding. Need an alternate except for injection.
If your last tetanus toxoid was more than 10 years ago, I recommend you take it. If your pet has been vaccinated, then nothing to worry. Else atleast 2-3 rabies shot is needed. You can monitor the pet after 3 dose of rabies. Hope you cleaned the wound under running flow of water.
 
My son is 6 yrs old got nail scratch from pet dog which was vaccinated but i m worried because i did not gave any vaccination to my child its 4 days now
Hi Just observe the dog for 10 days , if nothing happens to dog then no need of vaccination to your child. If your dog dies in this 10 days then you need to vaccinate your child.
