Dear, scratch by nails of dog is fine,but if it is by his teeth then you are supposed to take precautions.Any scratch or lick on mucous membrane like lips and others is capable of transmitting rabies.I hope your dog is vaccinated for rabies.If not please talk to your doctor about your protection.bye and take care.

Our 6-year old kid was accidentally scratched with dog s teeth between the his nose and upper lip . The dog is 3-4 mos old and does not get any anti- rabies shot. The scratch was noticed and cleaned in the late evening (it happened in the morning). A little blood was seen. The kid got sick (high fever) 4 days after, vomitting on the 2nd day of sickness but no diagnosis given by doctors. The scratched was healed even before the kid got sick. The dog who was frightened by another kid got sick and unable to walk before the kid got sick. The other day the dog vomitted brown substance and his stool black. The dog loose appetite and did not eat yesterday and died in the evening. The death of the dog feared us badly now on the kid. Does it mean the kid is also in danger? Need your feedback please. Thanks a lot.

One of my kids opened the front door and the puppy ran out side in my yard where my other kids were playing along with my neighbor. The dog has all its up to date shots including rabies . Is the child in any physical or mentally harm?
