Regarding Rabies
I got a small cut in my leg from a shrap iron object nearly 11 days before and received an tetanus injection for But I think that my pet dog had my licked my open wound but I am not sure of it. My dog is healthy and regular on his rabies shots. Should I take rabies shot ? Is it to late for the shot? Or it is unlikely in my case to get infected and shot are not required.
