is 10 day observation required everywhere? my 7 month old puppy bit and caused laceration in my 7 year old brother. doctors chose not to close the wound and gave my brother anti-rabies shot. they also told us that nothing would have happened to my brother as he had been given a shot only 2 hours after being bitten and he has to get another 2 or 3 shots over next 10 days. so the worrying about my brother part is over. now i have my dog to worry about. why would she have rabies? she has been vaccinated at 4 month old. has not had any contact with a rabid animal as far as i know. I mean had she been bitten wouldn't i have seen some unexplained wound? I've inspected every inch of my dogs body and she has no wounds. however she has been more aggressive in last month. she has always been a biter. she just tries to jump on everyone lately. she also has eye discharge. but again she has had eye discharge before. the day she bit my brother and when we saw our vet he has told me that i wouldn't be able to give her any medication for the next 10 days. so I can't give her drops or anything for her irritated eyes. should i be scared? is there any way she can have rabies?
