hi! my helper was bitten by our housedog yesterday. she sutained a XXXXXXX wound and several shallow wounds from the bite. the wounds were immediately washed with soap & water and applied an antiseptic ointment (burnol), then brought to the E.R. for further treatment... she was injected with anti-tetanus/HTig shot and was asked to take oral antibiotics for 7days since yesterday.

the dog is in a sanitized area, takes a bath everyday, and eats dogfood only. it has bitten my helpers (including this one, but not as severe and took only anti-tetanus shots) in the past and the dog stayed healthy until now.

this helper of mine was prescribed today with an anti-rabies shot (1x-rabipur & 3x-beribub) because the doctor in charge of prescribing anti-rabies was off duty yesterday...
my question is:
1.) what is the difference between rabipur & berirub?
2.) does she really need to have all these shots?

thanks,
XXXXXXX

doctor1 MD

Hello.

Berirab is human rabies immunoglobulin IgA and protects the acute illness of rabies.

Rabipur is vaccination which protects her from rabies in future. Both the injections are used together after a bite from an animal of unknown vaccination status.

All the shots are...

Hi. I have two dogs, which have both been vaccinated for rabies and I found them eating a dead squirrel in the yard. I think they have been snacking on this squirrel for a couple days. They are both inside dogs so they frequently are licking our faces etc. My question is, if the squirrel had rabies, even though they are vaccinated could they spread rabies to humans by coming inside and licking us after they were eating the squirrel?

doctor1 MD

Hello,

Thanks for posting your query.

Both of your dogs are vaccinated for rabies. If they feed on a rabies infected squirrel and directly immediately after that lick on the face or an open wound or a mucosal membrane then a very remote possibility is there that the remnants of squirrel in their...

doctor1 MD

Hi XXXXXXX

Thanks for your query.

     If you had a full course of anti rabies vaccination just eight months back ,you really don`t need repeat vaccination.To be on safer side some people recommend three doses for second bite or injury due to dog.So if you want to be sure you can go for three doses...

Greetings! Brother, I was bitten by dog on 14th January 2014 in the morning around 6. a.m. Around 6.45 a.m I went to clinic and they wiped it. Then around 10 a.m on the day I was given a tetanus injection and started taking antibiotic for a week. Evening around 5 p.m I was given a anti rabies vaccination. I was given anti rabies vaccination for 14 days consequatively around nipple and then after 10 days 1 injection then 10 days after 1 injection and after 10 days last injection. So total 17 injections around the nipple. That means, January - 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20, 21, 22, 23, 24, 25, 26, 27,\ Feb 6, 16, 26 dates I was given a anti rabies vaccination. On 16th Feb. I had a food poison due to the juice (awakadu) which I was taken outside. Again I was given anti biotic. I completed it. After food poison I feel in my mouth I am getting saliva. Doctor checked my blood they told I have a 108 sugar and 225 is a colostratral. Yet dog is alive and owner of the dog says it is in a good condition. Can you please tell me if possible the reasons of saleva I am getting it. I am also not feeling hungry. If time permits kindly reply brother. With respects, moses
