My dog is bitten/ attacked by one unknown dog today morning.......after 3hrs of that incident I touched my dog helping the vet. doctor for post vaccination. But now I am in very tension thinking that my hand touched the saliva of that unknown dog......because there is a small wound in my hand.
     Is there risk of Rabies infection through this incident ? Pls help me...
