Hello,

As per your history, you may require the anti-rabies vaccine.

You have to take the vaccine on day 0,3,7,14,28 after consultation.

In case of heavy bleeding, you may require anti Rabies serum injection.

Don't suture it. Wash with plain soap water. Complete the vaccination schedule

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Shyam B. Kale, General & Family Physician
