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.

dog nail got my nose 3 weeks ago its get worse what do I need to do
Greetings Madam. As for a dog scratch is concerned it is nothing to worry if it is being at, on, or near the surface of skin not deep; cleaned that wound in running water immediately having a TT injection shot & dog been vaccinated against rabies. Without all these if it's of deep cut, street dog & had not cleaned nor had TT injection, It's advisable to visit to nearby doctor for Rabies Vaccine.
