No worries

Detailed Answer:
Hi. Welcome to Healthcare Magic. I am Dr Anshul Varshney for your help.
Don't worry you won't get any side effect because of taking it a day before the scheduled date.
You should take your 3rd dose on your 7th day that would be 3rd of July.
I hope it helps you.
If you have any further query please ask me.

Yes you should take the 3rd dose. If your bite was not severe and your dog survives after 10th day, you may skip the remaining doses.
