Hi
Welcome to Healthcare-Magic
Greetings of the day

Dear Mr XXXXXXX

Immunizations of dog does not guarantee complete protection. This could be due to incomplete immune reaction in dog. As Rabies is disease with 100 percent mortality, it is recommended to get anti Rabies vaccination. Rabies vaccine is very safe .

I would suggest you to get three doses of Rabies vaccine. Day 0 ( on the day of bite ) , day 3 and day 7. If the dog is normal after 1 days further vaccination is not required.

Do get back to me if you need any further assistance, will be glad to assist you.


Take care
