Welcome to HCM
First of all I would like to inform you that both of you and your pet have not completed the vaccination schedule ,specially you should have take five dose instead of three when you are not vaccinated earlier.Anytime any dog bite/lick open wound five doses of vaccination should be completed.Ciggerate is not affect the the vaccine but the improper vaccination may affect you.
so I would like to suggest you to do proper vaccination for both of you.

Hello Devanshu,

Welcome here on hcm.
First to forget all worries.
It does not matter that the 2 month delays in vaccinating your dog after eleven year of full vaccination.
This delay is of no significance.
After all if your pet dog is surviving after 10days of the lick than there is no cause for concern and worries.
