Brief Answer:
You can be free from rabies after scheduled vaccination...

Detailed Answer:
Hi dear thankyou for your answer.

Yes, it is good thing that you have maintained good schedule of the rabies vaccination.

With good vaccination schedule chance of the rabies occurrence decreases to nil.

So after completing the schedule you can be free from the chance of rabies.

If you do not know about mixture of the saliva of puppy than chance of rabies decreases further.

So in my advice you should not worry for the rabies after completing the fifth dose of rabies vaccine.

For gas in stomach you can take the pantoprazole and domperidone.

For yellow urine you can take plenty of water. This will dilute the urine and decreases the yellow color urine.

You can ask me for further query. Or you can ask me on bit.ly/DrArun.

Brief Answer:
Continuing the vero cell vaccine is sufficient...

Detailed Answer:
Hi dear

Thank you for asking query.

It is necessary to take the rabies immunoglobulin immediately after the bite of the dog.

Since there was no bite and it is already more than 10 days ago, there is no need for immunoglobulin. You can continue your vero cell vaccination according to the schedule this will be sufficient.

You can ask me for further clarification.

Thank you,
