Post Need Help!!!!!

Hi.I really want to ask something.
I have a 2-month old puppy that was given to me a week ago. Yesterday, he accidentally bit me when i was trying to feed him. I got a very small cut,i'd say a centimeter long. I washed it with soap and squeezed my finger to let the blood out and put some antibacterial cream on my wound after .Do I get rabies? Should I be alarmed? btw,I got vaccinated 5 years ago. Is it safe? Thanks, I really need your help.

So nothing will really happen? Should I observe my puppy?

Are you saying you have had the rabies vaccination series?

What area of the world do you live in? Is rabies a problem in your region?


If you lived in the USA, where people vaccinate their dogs for rabies, the chances of getting rabies from a puppy would be low to nill. Raising puppies almost always involves a bit of accidental blood!


But the fact you have been vaccinated against rabies before, makes me think you live somewhere where rabies is an issue?


Did the puppy bite you while guarding his food, or was it a nip that happened while he was playing with you?
