Bitten by pet dog, wound on fingers, bleeding. Taken TT, XPRAB vaccinations. Precautions?

i ve been bitten by my dog today at 11 30 Am in the morning, which is my pet dog and he is perfectly vaccinated up to date. I washed the wound with dettol and soap. Got a whole by its teeth in my hand between 1st and 2nd finger which was bleeding although and has an opening. I have taken TT nearly in an hour after the incident. And took my first shot of XPRAB within 5 hours manufactured by and made in. What else should I do to protect myself ?

Thanks for query
As your dog is perfectly vaccinated, no need to take any antirabies vaccine. It was good of you that you have taken the TT vaccine. Just take care of the wound and if it big enough then antibiotic may be needed.
I hope this answers your query well
