Bitten by a white rat
My daughter was bitten by a white rat which was inside a cage when we visited a zoo(Nisarga Dhama) in Madikeri 5 days back. She had put her finger in the cage which we did not notice. The bite is not severe. It looks like just a scratch and has healed. Please let me know if I need to give her any anti rabies or is any other vaccination required in particular. I am really worried about this. Please help.
