Welcome to HCM
We understand your concerns

Even though your dog is vaccinated, there is still a risk of rabies as your dog was bitten by other dogs. Over and above you have been scratched by your dog with its claws. Such an incident has other risks of contracting pathogens through blood and other contagious diseases.

Therefore I suggest to consult a general practitioner to have a detailed investigation and advice.

I hope I am able to answer your query.
I can be of further assistance if you desire so.
Get well soon.
