Thank you for your query.

You have a pet dog which is now more than 2 months old. I hope the dog has been given rabies shots by the vet. If not then ensure a proper vaccination of the dog.

Rabies is contracted from a rabid animal. I presume your dog has not come is contact with any wild animal and so there is not chance of it contracting rabies.

Do not scare yourself unnecessarily and ensure proper vaccination of your pet dog.

Wishing you all the best.
