Hi there....first and foremost calm yourself. If the dog had rabies, then the dog would have died within 2 weeks. Also if you had caught the virus, symptoms of rabies would have already manifested. So you can relax and continue daily work. If you have any further queries you can consult a community medicine doctor at any teaching hospital.
