I agree witb Dr. Anil Kumar Jain. But can we be sure that immunity was detectable in dog as well as the person bitten. But being domestic dog it is very unlikely for the dog to have rabies. But taking antirabies vaccines must be followed by assessment of antibody level (immunity) against rabies.

Hello There. I can understand your concern. domesticated dogs are usually well vaccinated as in your dogs' case and they do not carry rabies. also, you have taken the rabies vaccine as you have stated. so that is a added bonus, so you do not have to take any vaccine as such for now. do proper wound dressing. best regards, Dr. anil kumar jain.
