I am confident that the small dog died because by badly injured by big dogs. Should my wife take injections by bitten a small dog? Will injections effect if we take after passing 3 days? If I inter-coursed with my wife then I should also take injections?

1. If Immunization status of the dog is not known,start immunization immediately, Don't take RISK as Rabies has no cure.

2. If Dog is unknown or is killed: give full immunization as for rabies.
