From the information you have conveyed, bites from cats or other pets can be at risk of causing rabies infection in the bitten individual. Therefore, the first step that can be done is to visit the emergency room to evaluate the bite and evaluate the patient's wound condition.


In cat bites, evaluation is done by evaluating the condition of the cat that bit you for 10-14 days after the bite, if the wound is a high risk of injury, you can use anti-rabies vaccine or anti-rabies serum, if he is healthy during the evaluation period, then you don't need to continue. rabies vaccine /


And if your wound is light due to a cat bite, then you don't need the anti-rabies vaccine, but you have to wait for the neighbor's cat's evaluation, if the cat dies then you need an injection of the vaccine, but if the cat is healthy, you don't need a rabies injection, you only need to treat the patient's wound.


However, all of this requires an immediate examination by your doctor.


That is the information we can convey, also read rabies,
