Had been bit by dog which has had all shots. Finger is swollen. Advice?

Hi, my 3 dogs just got in a fight. When I went to break it up one of them got bit part of my hand and my whole pointer finger . They are all up to date on their shots but one my finger swelled right away. I also have a few puncture wounds and cuts. Is this something that should be looked at? I cleaned it right away and iced it.

Welcome to HCM,
Go for ARV and tetanus toxoid shots.
Consult your doctor and get dressing done.
He will go for antibiotic medicines if he thinks it is needed.
Ok and bye.
