Hi and welcome to HCM.
No. You definitely dont have to take a shot if there is no open wound. This is probably just an irritation or allergy. It might not be related to this puppy. Just keep this place clean and dont worry. Nothing can be transmissed on this way. If you notice swelling or pain in toe you should visit doctor,if not, it will pass in short time. WIsh you good health.
