HI
Thank for asking to HCM
I really appreciate your concern and over all criteria of antirabies vaccination is depends upon the dog and wound, if dog is female and having rabies infection and wound is deep then vaccination is must if the dog is male and this just scratch then no need to for vaccination, take care and have a nice day.
