hello dear, u dont need to worry much. it ll be better if u take a single shot of antirabies serum. nothing is to be done to dog. also as it is a pet dog u dont need to worry because it is said if a dog is suffering from rabies it would die in a month. so just for your safety take a shot of injection and observe the dog for a month. have a good day

Dear Concerned.,

Thanks for writing to us.

You need to wash the area best with soap water and keep it open without applying any plaster/dressing.(I am answering this for a human bite as it is not clear in your history whether the dog has bitten you or another pet of yours??)

In addition you need to be immunised against Rabies(Eg Rabipur-Post Exposure Prophylaxis-0 day/03rd day/07 th day/14th day/28th day.) this is 05 dose course as per WHO recommendations.

Get immunised against tetanus as well.

wishing you a speedy recovery.,

Best Regards.,

Dr Lt Cdr ASN Bhushan,
