thank you for choosing Healthcaremagic,
Here is the protocol how we proceed with dogbite..
Wound at any site with fresh oozing of blood, bite on face etc: Category 3.
If category 3 immediate local care without suturing the wound, rabipur
and tetanus toxoid
Antirabies serum can be given within 72hrs..The earlier the better..
patient instructed to observe the dog for 10days, if it shows symptoms of rabies, he is instructed to take the specimen for virological testing if possible.
Schedule of rabipur:0,3,7,14,28th day...90th day is optional..
Milder categories of bite just need 5 doses of rabipur..
Depends on the category of bite wound
Get 90th day vaccination
to be sure..
