welcome to HealthcareMagic
It is always advisable to take at least an injection of T.T as a preventive measure because there is no specific medicines for animal bite or scratch other than for dog bite.Also if need arises you can take antibiotic if your doctor advises;so better get examined by your family doctor as a precautionary measure.
