Tt along with a antibiotic ciplox is fine, u dint need to get Arv and rig. You may not need rabies prophylaxis immune globulin or vaccine...this is because rodents like rats or squirrels are not considered rabies vectors.. they don't survive long enough after an attack by a rabid animal to incubate and spread rabies.the antibiotic is given prior to avoid any secondary bacterial infection..
