Bitten by pet dog, got a small cut. Had rabies injection for cat. Should i take it again?

Hello. I was accidentally bitten by my pet dog. The bite is a bit small and only on the epidermis . No blood was seen, although while I was washing the wound, I felt a bit of a sting. My dog is 2 months and 2 weeks old, and she has not been given anti- rabies shot. I was bitten by my cat last year and I was given shots for the cat bite. I was told that the shots were good for one year. Do I need to get shots for the dog bite? I am so bothered.
