It's gud tht ur dog has been vaccinated Bt still just get a post bite vaccine done if cut is deep enough coz anti rabies vaccine in dog does nt ensure tht rabies won't develop but chances of developing rabies are less plus survival increases but as u know human life is more important so itz better to get urself vaccinated nd ruling out the possibility as rabies is always fatal. Also I as a vet Dr. get my routine rabies vaccines done evry year.
