This is the same questions but with more details.
I was playing with my one year old puppy who was clearly not in the mood. Out of annoyance, he fended me off with its mouth. He wasn't by any means snarling or growling, he just wants me to go away. My face just happened to be at the wrong place and his tooth accidentally poked my lip and it bled. I washed it off with some tap water and put a cotton ball to stop the bleeding. After a few minutes, it healed and after the day, the scar was almost gone. It wasn't really a big wound just the size of a tiny dot is all.
I'm afraid I might get rabies because my wound was on he head area. I don't want to die.
I went ahead and got a rabies shot two days after the incident. Also got an ERIG and tetanus shot on that day, too. I kind of trust my pup because he got vaccinated.
As of this posting, I've already received my third shot.
Here's some details about my pup:
[*]He got vaccinated at four months old for anti-rabies. The vaccine administered to him was Defensor 3. That was his first shot for that and it happened last January 5, 2020.
[*]Before the incident, he is happy, playful, and mostly sleepy. You know, typical puppy behavior. After the incident, on day three. he appears to still be himself. No change in behavior at all.
[*]He rarely interacts with dogs that we do not know. We only ever let him play with the neighbor dog who is also healthy. We also do not have any bats or raccoons or any other vicious animals here. Our neighborhood is full of dogs.
I myself have not presented any typical signs post incident (tingling or pain in the area of the bite, fever) and it has been nine days since the incident and my dog behaves normally. I just have really bad anxiety which makes this situation worse. My worst fear is that the vaccine does not work because I got my shot two days after the bite and I was nipped on the lip. Now I'm super aware of my own saliva to the point where I fear of increased salivation.
