Hi! Sir/ Madame:
I’m from Camarin,North Caloocan. I have a 3-month old puppy, very playful and had somehow scatched my son and myself with her teeth on both our hands on 2 different days which are one week apart. Both the scratchmarks are like half an inch long. We already had 3 doses of the antirabies vaccine from CCMM animal bite center at Zabarte Rd.
May I ask if we still need the 4th dose which we’ll have on Dec 26(for my son) and Jan 2(for myself). Our puppy is very healthy and very active and growing fast.
Another concern would be for my daughter. Our puppy Cara is also fond of jumping towards her and trying to catch the edge of her shorts and as she did it yesterday Cara bit her at the back of her left leg, the bite is like a small punctured wound which instantly bled. We washed it applied alcohol then betadine on the wound.
Just to let you know Cara our puppy had the antirabies vaccine 10 days ago from our veterinarian nearby.
My question is, do we still have our daughter vaccinated with antirabies vaccine?
Any response qill bw highly appreciated.
Hello. Both bites and scratches need to be vaccinated but you mentioned that Cara has just been vaccinated 10 days ago. My advice is to visit the veterinary doctor or the animal bite center whichever is near you, and ask for an official medical advice.
If I were in your shoes, I would still continue and complete the vaccination schedule so that if this happens again in the future, you only need to do booster shots. If you don’t complete the regimen, it’s back to square 1.
