Hello....... Lick on the intact skin is in first category of rabies exposure.. If dog licks on bare skin don't take chance... Get yourself vaccinated.. If it's known dog you can observe dog for ten days . Vaccinate as soon as possible with in nine of bite... Because rabies is non curable disease, don't take chance.
