thanks for writing to health care magic

first after any dog bite pl clean the wound with plenty of water and soap

did you get tetanus vaccination..........if not give her TT injection

is the dog vaccinated or not......this is also important

reexposure vaccination is definitely required if the dog is not vaccinated even if she completed the full course of vaccination previously or had pre exposure prophylaxis before

in this three doses are given

hope this helps
take care
