This breathing problem is due to aggravated underlying bronchospasm due to asthma and not due to dog bite and better you consult your Pediatrician for the examination of dog bite wound and the assessment of the immunization status and to assess the requirement of passive or active immunization and for the specific management of breathing problem.
