rabies

hello, i am a bit worried, my dog bit my finger playing around with me, and i barly bled, but i bled, im worried if i might have gotten rabies because after symptoms show, i heard that its too late to do anything, its been two days since he bit me, the cut looks fine, its not infected, i dont have any symptoms, i eat and drink fine, the only thing tht i have is tht im drowsy, but tht is because i was up all night worried the day i got bit, my dog shows no sign of rabies, my brother had told me he had gotten his rabie shots but seemed unsure at first, i feel completely normal except for the paranoia tht i might have gotten rabies, do u think i might be infected? or am i safe?

yes u r save...rabies virus is present in rabid animals i.e those infected by the virus they r furious irritable n reactive to other stimuli...so u r safe as ur dog is normal n not infected..regards..by the way for future as a precaution get urself vaccinated in case a rabid 1 attacks u :P take care..

You could also give the dog's vet a call and see if he/she is up to date on rabies vaccine.
