Good evening, thanks for the question

In the case of having a history of being bitten by an infectious rabies, one of which is a dog, it is important to consider the type of injury. If there are no serious injuries and the bite skin still looks intact, it is classified as a low risk injury. In low risk wounds, after wounds only need to be cleaned with soap after being bitten, and no need to be given an anti-rabies vaccine (VAR). It is enough to monitor the biting animal for 10-14 days. If the animal dies within this time period it is necessary to immediately provide an anti-rabies vaccine at a health facility.

If the wound is classified as high risk (open wound, not intact skin, multiple injuries include face, head, neck, toes, fingers) then anti-rabies vaccine and SAR (anti-rabies serum) vaccine are given. Provision of VAR and SAR is stopped if during the observation period the animal is in good health. Therefore need to be confirmed again after being bitten wound condition.

The way to recognize an animal that is indicated to be rabies is that the animal no longer recognizes its owner, disobeys the owner's orders, easily rebels without provocation, is agitated, does not like being exposed to light or light, becomes violent, eats things around him, and then dies within 10- 14 days.
Rabies symptoms usually appear around 4-12 weeks after the victim is bitten by an infected animal. Symptoms include fever, muscle weakness, or tingling. But if in doubt, you should check with a doctor. It is also important to carry out routine rabies immunization in pets.

That's all, hope you can help
Wassalam.
