Can I take a rabies injection after a week of a dog bite?
Hello, last week I visited my friend's farmhouse where his pet dog bites me. I thought I was rabies vaccinated but it turned out I was never vaccinated. Can I still protect myself from getting rabies by getting a rabies injection? Can I take a rabies injection after a week of a dog bite? I am worried. Please suggest what can I do?
@edo Hello, if the animal is alive & healthy till 10 days after the bite and if the dog tests negative for rabies then no need to worry. You might have to take three injections as there are high chances that the dog might be vaccinated. If you develop any symptoms like pain, fatigue, headache, muscle spasms, or fever then please talk to your doctor. Thanks!
